Few US courses are more reminiscent of Scottish links than the one at Garden City Golf Club, an hour east of New York City. The club, founded in 1899, is such a throwback in time that ladies are apparently forbidden anywhere on the grounds. The staid and quaint clubhouse contains an amazing array of golf memorabilia, much of it concerning the architect responsible for making the original course into something special, Walter Travis. The layout starts out fairly tight—the driving area is right next to the first tee—but there is more space beginning with the 4th. Thinning of trees has improved the view, and maintenance is careful but sparing as befits a links layout. Unusually, the final 18th is a mere par 3. In its early years the club hosted a number of tournaments, including the 1908 US Amateur, which Travis lost after getting snared in one of his own bunkers.
