Atlantic Golf Club | Bridgehampton, New York
General Manager/COO

About the Club
Founded in 1989, Atlantic Golf Club is located on the eastern end of Long Island in Bridgehampton, New York in the exclusive Hamptons community. Developer Lowell Schulman constructed the Club on a 205-acre potato farm and obtained the services of Rees Jones to design and build the course. The Rees Jones designed course opened in 1992 to both local and national rave reviews, winning Golf Digest’s award for the “Best New Private Course” and quickly cementing itself as a Hamptons classic. The New England-style clubhouse offers members a full bar, restaurant, and pro shop.

Atlantic Golf Club has demonstrated a commitment to excellence that extends to every facet of the operation from the course to the membership and staff, many of whom have been with the club since its inception. The Club embodies traditional values, a select but diverse membership, founded for the enjoyment of a superb golfing experience in a magnificent setting.

Atlantic Golf Club was chosen to host the 1995 Met Open as its first local major championship. It was the first chapter in what is destined to be a long and distinguished history linking Atlantic with the best in championship golf. The Club has hosted several local and national championships and is the home course of the Hamptons Invitational Celebrity Pro-Am (“The Gust”). The Metropolitan Golf Writers Association named Atlantic Golf Club “Club of the Year” in 2010.

The Club is open from the end of April to the end of October. The golf course is available to members year-round. Clubhouse is open for breakfast and lunch Wednesday to Monday in season.
