Join us Tuesday, May 7, 2019 for a round of golf at The Meadow Brook Club in Jericho, New York
About the Meadow Book Club:
The Meadow Brook Golf Club is a sprawling course with a rich history embedded in Nassau County. It originated as the Meadow Brook Hunt Club, established in 1881 in Westbury, New York and home of the Meadow Brook Hounds. The hunt club had its headquarters in Westbury, but convened in different rural parts of Nassau County where the hounds and horses could run free. Future President Theodore Roosevelt was a member of the hunt club, which met at his home in Oyster Bay in 1886. The members sometimes hunted foxes, but often drag hunted, where the hounds followed a trail of anise scent.
The Hunt Club gave birth to the Meadowbrook Polo Club, and later extended to a nine-hole golf course, built in 1894. A new site for an 18-hole golf course in Jericho, New York was selected in October 1953 by Dick Wilson, the architect of the course. Today, the course sits on a meadow where each green feels like a breath of fresh air. Every hump and hollow, every rise and fall, every valley and peak feels like a joy to discover and traverse across. In short, if you have not yet experienced the delight of the Meadow Brook Golf Course, you'll want to add this one to your list and support a positive cause while you play.
