The North Shore Country Club course is a C. B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor redesign of Devereux Emmet’s 1912 Glenwood Country Club layout. Tom Doak has since revised the course for its new owner.
This is a hidden gem amongst Long Island golf courses. The original design by Charles Blair MacDonald and Seth Raynor is both formidable and fun, featuring dramatic elevation changes in the back nine with challenging, undulating greens throughout the entire course.
While the course isn't the longest or hardest, it is a great track to play for all handicap levels. The course is maintained in a fantastic manner and is easily one of the biggest selling points. The greens are always in perfect shape and often can be rolling around a 12 on the stimp. In an area where there are a lot of top 100 courses it can be overshadowed at times but is definitely worth playing. There are a number of signature Raynor/Macdonald course features between a Redan hole, a double plateau hole as well as a classic dogleg.
