Situated on 283 acres, The Easton Club boasts an eighteen-hole golf course surrounded by 342 detached and attached single-family home sites, including 152 1/4 acre to 1/2 acre lots. The golf course was routed through tidal wetlands and a twenty-acre non-tidal basin.
Holes such as Cannonball (#5) and Third Haven (#1) recall Easton's role in America's early years. No Corner For The Devil (#15) and Oxford/Bellevue (#13) pay homage to historical landmarks. Tack (#2) asks the golfer to negotiate a left to right hole similar to sailing considerations along the nearby Tred Avon River. Other holes such as Decoy (#8) and Nettle (#17) derive their strategy from the rich heritage of the Chesapeake Bay. The Easton Club is completely built-out and its golf course acts as the primary amenity for two additional residential developments in the area, including Chesapeake by Del Webb in Trappe.

Considering it's March, course in great shape. Bermuda not yet out, but will be fine this year (conversion to Bermuda 2 years ago). Picturesque, average difficulty. A shotmaker's course, it requires the ball to be hit to the right place. Driver not always the best option off the tee. Good variety of tees to choose from; course is not overly long even from the blacks. Features an island green from an elevated tee box (par 3), generally generous fairways that narrow as the green is approached. Fair amount of water.
