The Seawane Club

Hewlett, NY Private


In the era of social media, it’s tough to remain a true hidden gem these days. If it’s a good course, it has likely been discovered. The Seawane Club is as close to being hidden as it gets on golf-rich Long Island, boasting a tremendously creative routing from Devereux Emmett with recent work done by Jeff Stein, who has helped Gil Hanse at a number of his biggest projects. The utilization of the Cauerbach Canal and having to traverse it multiple times throughout the round is expertly done, and Emmett’s green complexes are exemplified by fabulous conditioning thanks to superintendent Ryan Bell, who was part of the team who worked on the big-time reconstruction at nearby Glen Oaks. After being decimated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Bell—thanks to a new ownership team—has Seawane Club in its best shape in quite some time—with the crafty work of Emmett shining once again. Word is starting to get out—this won't remain a hidden gem for much longer.
