Sharp elevation changes in addition to the wind create challenges for many golfers, but with the phenomenal ocean views you'll have, it's impossible to get too down on yourself after a poor shot. Despite the incredible amount of golf courses in the area, this one might be able to rightly claim to have the most stunning views of the Atlantic. The natural foliage and palm trees add to an already distinctly tropical feel.Turtle Hill Golf Club at The Fairmont Southampton Specifications Holes Par Yards Rating Slope Driving Range Putting Green 18 54 2684 -- -- -- --
Theodore Robinson designed this course. There are 18 holes here, which stretch out a total length of 2684 yards. Also note that there's a golf pro, Bruce Sims, at the grounds who can help first-timers practice their skills or give more advanced pointers for competent players.
This is a par 3 course, but it nevertheless can provide a bit of a challenge even to experienced golfers. You'll play through a number of bunkers and water hazards, but the most challenging aspect might be the still winds that are usually blowing hard off the ocean. You'll need a good short game and careful club selection if you plan on turning in a good score here.
