St George's Golf and Country Club

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

Est. 1917

St George's Golf and Country Club: with the intention that it was to become his own private course, famed architect Devereux Emmet commissioned and designed the layout at this revered New York club in 1917. The course has recently been restored by Gil Hanse, one of today's top designers.

Located close to Stony Brook University on Long Island, Emmet's home course has truly withstood the test of time. St George’s is known today, as in its early days, for firm fairways, small greens and numerous bunkers. The prolific and often geometric bunkering is not unlike that found on the designs of Emmet's friend and mentor Charles Blair Macdonald. [A private club, exclusively for the use of members and their invited guests].

Did you know?

St George’s “founding father” was Devereux Emmet, the wealthy golf course architect, accomplished amateur golfer and close friend of Charles Blair Macdonald, the father of American golf course architecture. As this course was going to be Emmet's own course, where he could entertain his friends and family, he spent considerable time in getting it right.

Once the decision was made to proceed with the project, Emmet conducted a study of various parcels of property and identified the present site, approximately three miles from his own sprawling estate. 140 acres of land were purchased at $300 per acre. Emmet then designed and oversaw the building of course. He became the Greens Committee Chairman for the first ten years and won the club championship on three occasions.
