The Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New York est. 1756
Please join us for the 74th Annual Golf Tournament
Tuesday June 5th, 2018
Country Club of Darien
Edgar S. Auchincloss was the visionary and founder of The Country Club of Darien. His parents acquired the 140-acre farm in the early 1900s as a vacation retreat, but by the 1950’s, the estate had become an expensive luxury and Edgar’s mother agreed to convert the land into an income producing property. Originally designed by the famous English born designer Alfred Tull, the Club broke ground in August 1956 with 400 members and the first nine holes of the golf course opened to play in July 1957. Although the course went through several embellishments over the years, the course was tastefully redesigned by Dr. Michael J. Hurdzan in 2006, which earned him selection as a finalist for the “2009 Best Architect Award”.
Team Best Ball: Each member of a four-person team will play his or her own ball from tee to green, and the two lowest handicapped scores from each hole will be combined and recorded as the team’s score.
Individual Stroke Play: Each player will also be competing for individual Low Gross, 2nd Low Gross, and Low Net awards.
