The Society’s annual Robert Ludlow Maclean Memorial golf outing, will be held on September 19, at The Rockaway Hunting Club, the oldest country club in the United States, located 615 Ocean Ave. Lawrence, New York 11559.

Organized in Bayswater 1877, Rockaway’s initial fame came from polo.  In 1883 the club moved to Lawrence where its members built a clubhouse considered the largest, most luxurious on Long Island, overlooking Reynolds Channel, Long Beach, a polo field and a four-mile steeplechase course.

Rockaway’s 18 Hole championship golf course measures 6,251 yards, was constructed in 1900 by T. Bendelow and redesigned by Albert T. Tillinghast in the mid-1920s.  In traditional Scottish Links design the course is relatively flat with 5 natural water holes.  Shifting winds make club selection difficult and shot making accuracy is of greater importance than length.  The par 4, 454 yard 9th hole is regarded as one of the 100 best golf holes in America.

As in the past, the day will begin with a buffet lunch at 11:30 am and golf will follow at 12:30 pm.  
If you do not play golf and wish to attend just the evening collation, there is an option for you to do that as well. The collation starts at 5:00 PM.

Please reserve and pay for your place now. See “Add to Cart” buttons above. Gentlemen guests are welcome.
