Farm Neck's course is accented by water and other natural highlights.

Designed by the dean of New England golf course architects, Geoffrey Cornish, the championship course at Farm Neck may be most famous for hosting both President Barack Obama and President Bill Clinton.
Many famous people enjoy playing here.
Views and Challenge
With a postcard beauty but plenty of shotmaking challenge, this mature and lushly maintained course stirs the golfing soul with views of Sengekontacket Pond and wide island beaches. It has a complete pro shop, upscale rental equipment and a driving range.
Golfers at Farm Neck traverse a striking variation of topography and vegetation—everything from woodlands, to open meadows, to salt marshes, to stunning overlooks and intimate brushes with the water's edge.
The water appears glass-like on a calm day.
Overlooking the first tee, the Farm Neck Café offers casual dining from April through November. In addition, the Café is available for private parties, receptions and weddings either indoors or under the Farm Neck Tent.
No Place Quite Like The Vineyard
The Farm Neck club community—the golf course and adjoining cluster of homes—rests on a peninsula of rolling farmland on the eastern side of the Island, overlooking Nantucket Sound.
Tennis at Farm Neck is nearly as popular as golf. The club has four outdoor Har-Tru courts and an active program of lessons, clinics and tournaments for adults and juniors, conducted by skilled and helpful teaching professionals.
This special island property is part of a decades-old effort to preserve and protect 500 acres of land along the shores of Sengekontacket Pond from over-development. The result, both as a recreational and residential asset, has been judged a glowing success.
Farm Neck works hard to preserve the natural beauty of the area.
The Farm Neck Foundation is funded by annual donations from Farm Neck members, friends and admirers. Since its formation, the Foundation has made grants to Islanders in need—over $600,000 to preserve, protect and promote a precious way of life.

About Martha's Vineyard
The Island of Martha's Vineyard covers 100 square miles, and is home to both year-round and seasonal residents. Its unspoiled charm is best exemplified by its scenic beaches, which vary from protected, clear-water stretches to expanses of rumbling Atlantic surf.
Each Island town is unique in its geography, personality, and character. All blend together to create this special place. Martha's Vineyard is home to many visual and performance artists. Galleries dot the Island, from Aquinnah to Edgartown.
Martha's Vineyard has a remarkable variety of architecture that reflects its long colonial history, its economic success in the whaling era, and its emergence as a popular summer resort. Most of the Island's historical buildings are still in use as homes and stores.
Edgartown lighthouse is a lovely attraction.
Oak Bluffs, which began as a Methodist Camp Meeting site in 1834, has a very different style from the rest of the Island. Visitors to the early meetings lived in tents, but after the Civil War, the tents were replaced by permanent Gingerbread houses.
Their combination of bright colors, stained glass, turrets, and all manner of Gothic detail is unforgettable. Trinity United Methodist Church (1878), in the center of the Campgrounds, is a miniature wooden Gothic cathedral.
The Cottage City Museum in the same area is housed in one of the original homes, and gives one a real sense of island history.
