This club is often referred to as the 'The Big Club'. It's a 6,544 yard Seth Raynor designed golf links built in 1925, which has a longest tee for a par of 72. The course was built on a two mile wide island, splashed with lakes and ponds alongside a biologically diverse watershed where saltwater and freshwater meet, which is why golfers often see a range of wildlife in the background. The tricky thing about this links is keeping the ball in play because the rough has a reputation for swallowing balls.

In addition to the golf links the club also has four tennis courts, a beach club and a section of beach that only members are allowed to frequent.
