Mink Meadows Golf Club is a semi-private golf club located in Vineyard Haven and adjacent to West Chop on the island of Martha's Vineyard, MA.
The golf course was designed in 1936 by Wayne Stiles, who employed a style similar to his more famous contemporaries Donald Ross, A.W. Tillinglast and John Van Kleek.

Sheltered by trees and setbacks discreetly off the fairways are 60 homes whose residents form the the Mink Meadows Homeowners Association which is closely allied with the golf club. Owners of property in Mink Meadows become members of the Mink Meadows Homeowners Association (MMHA).
Private Association Beach
The major benefit of membership in the MMHA is the lovely beach which stretches out along the north shore of the island with long views of Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. On any day in summer you’ll see families spread out on the white sandy beach on blankets while children dig for clams or fish from the stone jetty and sailboats parade up and down the Sound.
Members enjoy access to the private association beach.
The Mink Meadows area and the Mink Meadows Golf Club are the ideal location to live when considering a short drive, walk or bike to town while still being able to enjoy your own private beach.
A jetty at the beach provides fishermen the perfect platform to cast while the beach spreads out for relaxing and swimming. In addition, the woodsy environment provides plenty of privacy for the homes, many of which look out on ponds, woods, ocean or golf course.
When you purchase of property in Mink Meadows, golf membership may be available and as a Mink Meadows owner, you may receive preferential placement on the waiting list.

The golf club has about 285 members, up from 225 five years ago. The club is currently undergoing a generational transition with elder members leaving the fold which has opened the door for new members. Membership, which includes one's spouse, costs $10,000, and is payable over three years.
Membership fees can be spread out over three years.
Mink Meadows' location is ideal if you're looking to be away from summer crowds. It lies adjacent to Tashmoo Woods, a low-density enclave of private homes and condominiums, and is nearby the 90-acre West Chop woods nature preserve.
The town of Vineyard Haven with two supermarkets, two movie theaters, two seafood markets, various boutiques, shops, restaurants and much more is just a five-minute drive away. And if you are thinking of using your home in the off-season, Vineyard Haven is the most year-round location of the five towns on the island.
