Fishers Island is a 45 minute ferry ride from New London, Connecticut, down the Thames River and across Fishers Island Sound.
Fishers Island Club is considered by many to be a world-beater, something supported by its frequent high ranking on most golf course listings. But this very private and exclusive Club, located on a small island off the Connecticut coast, certainly gets its fair share of mixed reviews.
Most holes are played directly alongside the seashore, offering spectacular scenery and an unforgettable golf experience. Some reviewers talk about a "so-so" layout and often "less than immaculate" conditioning, but if given the chance to play here, the best advice would seem to be grab it with both hands!
Fishers Island is a private club. Guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Walking permitted at all times.
Fishers Island measures just 9 miles long and a mile wide, and is located at the eastern end of Long Island Sound. Although part of New York state, it is only 2 miles off the coast of Connecticut. Year round fewer than 250 people live on Fishers Island.
During the 20th century well established and "old money" families selected the island as a summer vacation destination, building luxurious homes and creating an air of wealth and exclusivity on the island. Access to the eastern end of the island, where Fishers Island Club is located is by way of a private road.
