"Long Island Golf" Phil Carlucci

When the European sport of golf found its way to Long Island and took root in the Hamptons at Shinnecock Hills in 1891, its journey across the Atlantic served as the opening drive of a recreational era that now spans three centuries. Home to more than 130 golf courses, the area boasts prestigious American clubs overlooking picturesque Atlantic bays and inlets, along with public layouts climbing and descending the region’s sloping terrain. Long Island is home to the most popular municipal golf facility in the country, the centerpiece of which is Bethpage Black, the People’s Country Club. Celebrated architects like A.W. Tillinghast, Devereux Emmet, Seth Raynor, and C.B. Macdonald built many of Long Island’s famous courses, which have challenged the brightest of golf’s stars. International tournaments and star-studded exhibitions have all been decided on Long Island turf, helping it grow into one of the world’s most prominent golf settings.

Books will be available for purchase/signing after the event, $21.99 plus tax.
