Nearby Golf
Farm Neck in Oak Bluffs is a public course with a private pedigree. 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 along with countless celebrities.

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.

Mink Meadows
Another popular course is Mink Meadows Golf Club, a nine-hole, semi-private course. It was designed and constructed in 1936 by Wayne Stiles and enjoys a wide and loyal following. Non-members can make tee times two days in advance.

Measuring 3,078 yards on the front nine and 3,139 on the back, the course challenges golfers with its rolling terrain and rewards them equally with ocean views over Vineyard Sound to Woods Hole and the Elizabeth Islands.
