Hempstead Golf & Country Club first opened for play in 1921. The course sits on 122 acres of farmland and woods, transformed into a golf course by English greenskeeper Peter Lees. Lees first molded the farmland, and had nine holes ready for play on September 17, 1921, when an official opening-day match was played in a downpour. All 18 holes were ready by the start of the 1923 season. Leesâ€™ design was altered significantly when A.W. Tillinghast carved seven new holes from the woods for the 1927 season. Restorations by local architect Stephen Kay have been made over the years
This old traditional course features narrow fairways and small greens. No water hazards come into play, but there are several sand bunkers and mounds incorporated into the course design.

As a guest it's hard to beat. If you play in an outing pace of play will be an issue as with anywhere else. Pace when I played was fantastic
