Nantucket Golf Club

This striking private facility on Nantucket Island is home to one of the best new courses in the U.S. Although water never comes into view, the atmosphere is one of pure links golf. Strategic placement of shots is at a premium at all times.

The Rees Jones design is among the best-manicured courses in the country and with good reason-the fee to join this ultra-exclusive club is among the highest in the country as well. Still, holes such as the marvelous par-4 ninth (shown) make it worth every penny to the members.
