Course Review and Comments

Few classic golf courses can match Longue Vue Club. Perhaps the best of architect Robert White's designs where he included three historic holes on the course: Eden, Redan and an Alps Punchbowl. Robert White was born in St. Andrews, Scotland and became one of the most important figures in early American golf. Beside being a noted designer he was the first president of the PGA, a manufacturing entrepreneur and founder of MacGregor golf club company, founding member of the Golf Course Architect's Association, was the first person to use scientific methods for turf grass management, and built the first green at the White House. Tillinghast redesigned several holes in 1938, the year he built Bethpage Black. The layout and maintenance of the course is outstanding. Truly one of America's unknown gems. The clubhouse is an architectural masterpiece recently included among the 18 legendary American clubhouses along side Augusta National, Winged Foot, Shinnecock, Congressional, Merion, Oakmont and others.
