The Garden City Golf Club is one of the most notoriously private clubs in the United States, which — ironically — makes it one of the most sought-after by golf aficionados. This, again ironically, helps maintain the privacy of the Garden City Country Club even more. A few miles from the more famous Garden City, the country club also features a Walter Travis route for its members.

The course makes the most of its relatively-small parcel on a part of Long Island that’s become quite populated, and was relatively so even in Travis’s day. Playing just 6,540 from the tips, the course consists of a traditional out-and-back route, not returning to the clubhouse after nine. Although it seems like getting back to the clubhouse from any point should not be an issue on such a small piece of property, this proves untrue due to the Long Island Railroad, which cuts right through the course as it heads to the Nassau Boulevard station.

Players will play the first two holes along the north end of the railway before crossing over to play 14 holes, and then returning to the clubhouse side for the concluding two holes.

Walter Travis

Travis loved the New York City social and sporting scene. Apart from hunting and fishing trips he was also partial to a Ricoro Corona cigar, a dram or two of Old Crow whiskey, and evenings playing poker.
