Located in Fairfield County, featuring panoramic views across Long Island Sound, the fairways of the Longshore Golf Course occupy what was once an onion farm before it was converted into a municipal golf facility in the mid-1920s by Orrin Smith.

The layout measures only about 6,000 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 69. It’s largely flat with very ordinary greens and bunkers to match but it’s a place where you’ll find golfers of all abilities out playing at a steady pace of less than four hours for a round, even on busy Sunday afternoons.

Part of Longshore's popularity is its coastal setting but golf is just one of many outdoor pursuits to be found within a public park that allows easy access to all forms of fitness, whether that might be jogging, biking or even just dog-walking between the fairways.

Operated by Westport Parks & Recreation, Longshore hired a third party course maintenance firm to help turnaround its fortunes in 2014 in an effort to return the municipal facility to recording the sort of 40,000-plus rounds per annum figures that were once the norm.
