This prestigious course is exclusively private. The layout is a traditional design featuring the famous Donald Ross style. Ross redesigned the course in 1919. The terrain is rolling, and lakes come into play on six holes. The fairways are wide, and the small greens are fast. There are numerous old trees on the course that can affect your game if you hit errant shots. The front nine's several short par 4's require accurate shots if you hope to make a birdie or par. The back nine has several holes featuring dogleg fairways. This course and club is famous for being the site of the 1930 U.S. Open.
