Designed by legendary golf architect Arthur Hills and his associate Drew Rogers, the course measures 7,244 yards from the championship tees and has been nominated for “Best New Private Course” in Golf Digest’s “Annual (2003) Survey of America’s Best New Courses.” This course features greens, tees and fairways consisting of 100 percent seaside bent grass, and grand, swaying fescues often exceeding 4’ in length.

Sailing Regatta

Sponsored by Argus Management Company, Gordon Brothers Group LLC and Verdolino & Lowey, PC

Newport is not only the sailing capital of the world, it is also fortunate to be the only port in the world to house a charter fleet of classic 12-meter yachts, which were contenders in the America’s Cup Races. May of these yachts were built in the 1930s and have been meticulously restored to their original splendor. The Captain and crew will lead a challenge for some informal racing. No experience is necessary to trim, grind or steer as your team works together to get around the racecourse first. All you have to do is remember to bring your boat shoes or noncolored, soft-soled shoes/sneakers, sunglasses and sunscreen, and get ready to enjoy an exhilarating day at sea. This event will sell out very quickly! The $75-per-person fee includes a boxed lunch and onboard snacks and drinks. Please check the appropriate box on the registration form.
