Deepdale Golf Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Manhasset , New York.
The current Deepdale Golf Club first opened for play in 1955. The course was designed by Dick Wilson. But their is history to this Club. In 1924, William K. Vanderbilt II, decided to convert some of the rolling Long Island acreage on his Deepdale summer estate at Lake Success, into a private golf course. It was a historic moment that would create what is still considered to be one of the most prestigious private clubs in the nation.
Vanderbilt hired Charles Blair Macdonald, and his portages, Seth Raynor and Charles Banks, to design and create his golf course. Vanderbilt's friends soon approached him with the idea of organizing a golf club with a small, select membership, a place for weekday play when there was no time for the train ride out to Southampton and The National. On October 26, 1924, the Deepdale Golf Club was incorporated.
After 30 years of play, in 1954, the Long Island Expressway was routed through the northern part of the course. Dick Wilson was hired to re-engineer a new course on the old site, but when this didn't prove feasible, the club purchased the W.R. Grace estate, located just a short distance from the original Deepdale and had Wilson design a new course with numerous doglegs, tight fairways, subtle greens and sculptured bunkering.
Deepdale Golf Club's relocated course, with the stunning Grace mansion serving as the clubhouse, was officially opened in 1955, and its role as one of the preeminent private clubs in America continues to this day.
The golf course at the Deepdale Golf Club plays to a 70 par and a maximum distance of 6,623 yards. The course rating is 72.6 and the slope rating is 135.
