Members and their guests

New York native Seth Raynor was just over fifty when he died in 1926, but he left an amazing legacy that includes New York's Fishers Island, Ohio's Camargo, Bermuda's Mid Ocean, Connecticut's Fairfield, and Shore Acres on the lakeshore just outside of Chicago. The latter perhaps best preserves Raynor's original vision, and greenskeeper Tim Davis has made it his mission to protect this treasure. Measuring only 5963 meters, this course, like most vintage layouts, creates challenges not through length but through strategy and accuracy. The landscape is dominated by deep gullies that are even more striking than the views of Lake Michigan, and that are in play on a number of holes. Raynor like his partner Charles Blair Mcdonald was a big fan of Redans, and worked one into his par 3 14th; also memorable is the par 5 18th, at 552 yards the biggest stretch on the course.

Fabulous conditioned course designed by Seth Raynor. Generous Fairways with treacherous greens. Great bunker designs around the greens, not particularly long, 6,500 yards.
