Shinnecock Hills is one of the five clubs that founded the USGA and also the first club to allow women in its membership. The club has the first and oldest clubhouse in the U.S., which opened in 1892 and was designed by Stanford White. This narrow, links-style design was built on undulating terrain and will test all aspects of your game. There is one water hazard that rarely comes into play, but sand bunkers seem to be placed in all the right spots throughout the design. There are various shaped greens full of subtle breaks and severe undulations. All the fairways are defined by multiple cuts of rough, and if you find yourself in the long native grasses, you'll probably not make par on the hole. All fees are considered private information and are not available for publication. This club has been listed by the USGA as being one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S. In addition, it was recognized by "GOLF Magazine" in their 1995 list of "The First 100 Clubs in America." The U.S. Open was played here in 1896, which was won by James Foulis, and again in 1986 with the winner that year being Ray Floyd. The U.S. Open returned here for its centennial tournament in 1995 with Corey Pavin winning his first major tournament. The course was redesigned in 1931 by William Flynn. "Golf Digest" rated this as the #1 "Best in State" course from 1995 through 1998. "Golf Digest" also rated this course 6th best out of "America's 100 Greatest Courses" for 1995-96, and 5th best for 1997-98. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" selected it as 5th out of the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for 1995, 1997 and 1999, and "GOLFWEEK" ranked it 6th among "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1997, 1998 and 1999.
