Compared to its contemporaries in the East and West, Bay Shore’s Southward Ho Country Club does not have an exclamation mark, but the club does have the right to shout. The 1923 A.W. Tillinghast design, with trademark sloping, tightly-bunkered greens, was built at the same time as Winged Foot.

“Southward Ho is a somewhat unheralded A.W. Tillinghast design whose sloping greens (bunkered tightly towards the front) have drawn stylistic comparisons to Winged Foot, commented Daniel Wexler in The American Private Golf Club Guide. “The club’s best-known hole is 365-yard 8th (a sharp dogleg right whose approach is made over water) while the 164-yard 9th is a pond-fronted test that once played to a near-island green prior to the putting surface being moved.”
