Farm Neck Golf Club
Down a curving driveway, shaded by vineyard oaks and evergreens limited in height by the prevailing Atlantic winds, you will come to a special place, Farm Neck Golf Club. You’ll find an unprepossessing proshop, accompanied by a small members’ locker room (they have a limited membership) and a very casual restaurant. It’s understated, but elegant, from the design of the scorecards and signage, to the shaded putting greens, to the wide open first fairway—it almost lulls you into a sense of calm.
The course is a visual delight, with many holes running along the Vineyard Sound, and others running through meadows and marshes, with water, sand, wetlands, and wildlife keeping you alert all day long.
The course offers 4 sets of tees, playing a demanding 6815 (72.6/133) from the golds, a challenging 6301 (70.2/131) from the blues, 5859 (69.3/129) from the whites, and 4987 (64.3/118) from the reds. 129 slope at 5859 yards? What does that mean? It means this course, while offering usually generous landing areas, really places a premium on course management.
Water is threatening, or in play, on nine of the holes, and deep bunkers also punish those whose aspirations overreach their abilities.
