Avalon Golf Club
Salty breezes conjured from the North Atlantic can be a golfer’s worst enemy when traversing Avalon Golf Club. But for players who factor it into their swings, the breeze can help as much as it hinders as the course follows a path of narrow rye-grass fairways designed by Bob Hendricks in 1971. Hendricks incorporated eight natural lakes into the course’s layout, summoning the strategically timed squawks of gulls, hawks, and occasional bald eagles that soar overhead. Players looking to smooth out their swings can enlist the professional guidance of the club’s resident PGA professionals, Ted Wenner and Dennis Jones, during lessons and clinics.
After rounds, golfers can lounge on Avalon Links Restaurant’s patio, which overlooks the 18th green. After refueling on sandwiches or fresh seafood, club-goers can discreetly drive their carts into the sprawling pro shop for apparel and gear from Ashworth, Life Is Good, and Titleist.
