Tamarack Country Club


The history of golf course design in America cannot be told without the names CB MacDonald, Seth Raynor and Charles Banks.  Their golf courses are legendary and include such masterpieces as National Golf Links, Deepdale, Fisher's Island and Yale just to name a few.  In 1929, Charles Banks was commissioned to create a new golf course in the rolling hills of back country Greenwich, Connecticut which would be known as Tamarack due to a species of tree that thrived on the property.   Like his mentors,  MacDonald and Raynor, Charles Banks also drew his inspiration from the legendary golf courses of Europe and emulated many of the most interesting holes while adding a twist on their design.  Known as "Steam Shovel Charlie" because of his affection for using machinery to move and shape huge amounts of earth, Tamarack combines traditional European design with large push-up greens and enormous bunkers.  Our 6,841 yard par 70 course is bold and exciting to play while challenging to golfers of every skill level.  Lovingly restored to it's original grandeur, it is considered the gem of all Banks courses and the center piece of Tamarack Country Club.
