National Golf Links of America is a prestigious links-style golf course in Southampton, New York, located on Long Island between Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and Peconic Bay. Though the course is noted for hosting the initial Walker Cup in 1922, which the United States won 8 and 4, it has never hosted a major men's championship. The Walker Cup was again held at National in 2013.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=2013 Walker Cup Matches )〕 The private club has been called "America's snootiest golf course" due to its exclusive nature.
The course was designed by Charles B. Macdonald, who had been schooled at St. Andrews in Scotland during the 1870s. Macdonald had been paired with John Shippen, an African American in the 1896 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. Following the event, he quit Shinnecock and founded the new club. He set out to design a course that would rival the prominent golf courses located abroad, looking at potential sites in Cape Cod and Napeague before settling on a plot of land on Sebonac Neck next to Peconic Bay. The course was constructed adjacent to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, and now also borders Sebonack Golf Club, which opened in 2006. Construction of the golf course was supervised by Seth Raynor, a local civil engineer from Long Island who went on to design several golf courses of his own, including the Fishers Island Club.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Seth Raynor (1874-1926) )〕
When it opened in 1911, the course was called the ''National Golf Links of America'' because its 67 founding members, which included Robert Bacon, George W. Baxter, Urban H. Broughton, Charles Deering, James Deering, Findlay S. Douglas, Henry Clay Frick, Elbert Henry Gary, Clarence Mackay, De Lancey Nicoll, James A. Stillman, Walter Travis, and William Kissam Vanderbilt II, resided in various parts of the United States. The clubhouse was designed by Jarvis Hunt, one of the club's founding members.〔(【引用サイトリンク】url=http://www.math.uic.edu/~tangora/JarvisHunt-list.html )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Jarvis Hunt )〕
The National Golf Links of America was selected as the host of the 2013 Walker Cup in September 2008. In 2009, "The National" was ranked 15th in ''Golf Digests list of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
The current head golf professional is Jim Morris.
