The course simply known as 'Shinnecock' remains an American classic. William Flynn's 1930s redesign of C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor's work has withstood the test of time. Shinnecock Hills, a par 70 of 7,445 yards, is the only course to host a U.S. Open in three different centuries - 1896, 1886, 1996, 2004 and 2018. Its wispy tall grasses waving in the wind give it the majestic look and feel of an inland links. Its rolling topography stands tall, even within golf's most exclusive addresses. The National Golf Links of America and Sebonack are famous neighbors on New York's Long Island.
