The National Golf Links of America is home to a championship course that ranks with the world's best. Here you will find one of the United States' most admired duneland links layouts, with an outstanding array of excellently crafted and challenging holes. Golf courses don't get any better than this. However, this is a private course generally playable only by members and their guests.
National Golf Links is a private club. Guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Walking permitted at all times. Caddies available.
The National Golf Links hosted the first Walker Cup in 1922, when a team of amateur golfers representing Great Britain & Ireland took on the best amateur golfers in the United States. The trophy, won on the first nine occasions by the USA, bears the name of George Herbert Walker, president of the USGA in 1920 and the man who originated the idea of this bi-annual competition.
Credited with laying the foundations of golf in America, golf architect Charles Blair Madonald is best known for creating a trilogy of courses that are amongst America's very best: Chicago GC, Yale and the National Golf Links of America. All three layouts benefit from their linkage to the roots of the game in Scotland, while all three contain Macdonald's undoubted flair for creating something exciting, and just a little bit different!
2019/20 Golf Digest rating: 8th best course in the USA and 2nd best in New York state.
US Women's PGA Championship: located just outside Philadelphia, the famed Donald Ross layout of Aronimink Golf Club hosts the third women’s major championship of 2020 (Oct 8-11).
Scottish Open: first played in 1972, this year’s championship is again played on the Tom Doak-designed Renaissance Club course, which sits alongside mighty Muirfield in East Lothian (Oct 1-4).
Jim Furyk: in winning the Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links, “The Grinder” joined Arnold Palmer and Bruce Fleisher as the only players to win their first two starts on the PGA Tour Champions.
Georgia Hall: recorded her first win in an LPGA Tour event on American soil at this year’s Portland Classic, played at Columbia Edgewater Country Club … on the edge of the Columbia River.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
