Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1911

Piping Rock Club: after the completion of his revered design at National Golf Links of America, Charles Blair Macdonald turned his attentions to a new commission on Long Island, the Piping Rock Club. Here he laced the design with various interpretations of his favourite design concepts, including a Redan green and a Road Hole based on the 17th at St Andrews.

It was here at Piping Rock that Macdonald first introduced what has become his most imitated hole, the Biarritz. The par-3 8th at Piping Rock, boasts a green that's 60-yards-deep, bisected by a 6-foot-deep trench. A private club, exclusively for the use of members and their invited guests.
