The Vineyard Golf Club course winds through 235 acres of naturally rolling land and has a look and feel that blends seamlessly within the bucolic setting of Martha’s Vineyard.

Designed as a walking course, the holes flow seamlessly from greens to tees and the experience is enhanced through a caddie program that is among the very best in the Northeast. The course has many classic design elements that present varied and fun challenges to both seasoned and novice players. Throughout the course a player is presented with strategic choices that offer many risk/reward decisions every round. Varied green sizes and shapes call for a broad assortment of short game shots and the subtlety of the greens require a real finesse once one reaches the putting surfaces.

These qualities and characteristics are the work of Mr. Gil Hanse, the renowned golf course architect, who redesigned and revitalized the Vineyard Golf Club, first on the front nine in 2012-13 and more recently in his transformation of the second nine in 2014-15. The members have warmly embraced Gil’s work and his finished product is a course both to be proud of and one that will stand the test of time. It is visually spectacular, with almost 250,000 square feet of bunkering around the course, and an experience that players have reviewed as tough but exceedingly fair. VGC is also one of the few 100% organic golf courses in America. This forward looking approach to the agronomy of golf makes the Vineyard Golf Club stand out among its peers.
