The original course at the historic National Golf Links of America in Southampton New York was created by pioneering architect Charles Blair Macdonald, who is also known for being the inaugural winner of the US Amateur Open and was a major force behind the opening of the club in 1908. Despite being located on Peconic Sound, this is not a true links course, even if several of its holes are homages to famous Scottish links. Thus a facsimile of the 17th on St. Andrews' Old Course turns up on the front nine, with a fairly exact recreation of the green, though a bunker replaces the tarmac lane that makes the exemplar exceedingly tricky; and North Berwick's Redan also puts in an appearance, as do the Alps hole from Prestwick and the Sandwich's Sahara. The club is exceedingly exclusive, so play is only at the invitation of a member.

Awesome experience especially in the fall, great views, difficult greens, and all the features of Classic golf course design. If give the pleasure a must play. Conditions have always been perfect the few times I've been given the opportunity.
