Designed in 1928 by famed British architect, Herbert Bertram Strong, the Par 72, 6,574-yard Ocean Course represents the area's first resort golf experience. Lacking earth moving equipment, Strong used 100 mules dragging slip pans to shape course contours, dredge lagoons and build up a series of earthen mounds that dot the fairways creating dramatic undulations. Praises have followed the Ocean Course from the very beginning. In 1939, the Ocean Course was selected as the host for the prestigious Ryder Cup Matches. Unfortunately, just months prior to the scheduled event, it was cancelled due to the onset of World War II. In 1942, after completing a match, golf legend Bobby Jones commented, "it's a course to challenge professionals." Five times in its history, the Ocean Course has proudly served as the site for the U.S. Open qualifying round. The Ocean Course's ninety-nine strategically positioned sand bunkers enhance the beauty and increase the challenge of the golf experience. Designed to accommodate defensive pin positions, the elevated greens place a demand on thoughtful and accurate approach shots.
