Enjoy the changing of seasons at World-Class golf course Hampton Hills Country Club, a members-only club with a state-of-the-art clubhouse, dining room with breathtaking views and delicious dishes, all while boasting an impeccable golf course just ninety minutes outside of New York City.

Celebrity golfers who have been known to play the Hampton Hills course include Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons, Rudy Giuliani, Kelsey Grammer, Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck, John Starks, FOX’s Bill Hemmer and NY Jets’ Nick Mangold.

Bookended by past major tournament hosts Bethpage State Park Black Course and Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Hampton Hills is located in the middle of a 2,000 acre pine and oak tree preserve in Westhampton Beach. The peaceful, wooded setting allows club members to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and participate in friendly competition against a challenging Par-71 golf course featuring dramatic elevation changes.

Built in 1965 by Francis J. Duane, the course at Hampton Hills Country Club is said by members to never play the same way twice. Duane, a past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, frequently collaborated with famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and designed over a dozen courses with Arnold Palmer including the iconic Sea Pines Country Club course in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

At the end of the course, members are able to enjoy round of cocktails on the clubhouse’s patio or enjoy breakfast or lunch along with a simple bar menu inside, which overlooks the breathtaking 18th green offering members a friendly reprieve from competition at the Hampton Hills Country Club.
