Best Golf Courses in the World

Shinnecock Hills, Southampton, New York

With the first ever clubhouse in the US, Shinnecock Hills was one of the five founding members of the USGA.

Its current 18-hole course was designed by William Flynn and opened in 1931. Reminiscent of courses along the British coast, this private club benefits from its natural sandy terrain as well as Long Island’s prevailing Atlantic winds; there are only two occasions where consecutive holes run in the same direction.
