I played this course when I was about 12 years old. It's situated at the very northeastern tip of long island. To this day it remains one of my favorite golf courses I've played.

Simplistic but very aesthetically appealing to me, an interesting mix of links and Northeast US "Golden Age" architecture. Holes 15 is a 300 yard uphill par 4 with a crazy green, and 16 long par 3 where the Long Island Sound, a 200-ish foot tall cliff, comes in to play. Provides a Pebble Beach like feel on the opposite side of the country.

Will try to do a hole a day, and then will take a while to add final touches and everything. Hopefully this interests some of you!

Appreciate all the support Royce. Hopefully it can even be a fraction as well done as Oakland hills, I borrowed a lot of how I'm laying the course out from your posts.

Well, accidentally deleted this unpublished file. Had 7 holes done I don't think I'm going to redo it. ****
