Hyannisport Club

The Hyannisport Club is a private 18 hole golf course located in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. The club was founded in 1897 and the golf course was finalized in 1903. The course is an original Donald Ross design which plays 6,257 yards from the blue tee markers. While the course is short in terms of yardage, it is often called "the toughest 6200 yards in golf" because of the famous Hyannisport wind which blows directly off of the Atlantic Ocean. The club boasts some of the most scenic views on Cape Cod and is known for having water visible on every hole although coincidentally, there are no water hazards on the course. The course is located adjacent to the Kennedy Compound and the Kennedy family have long been members of the club. The current President of the club is Hyannisport resident John Andrew Schneeberger. Head professional Michael Haberl is known throughout Massachusetts and New England as one of the best in the business. The Club hosts "The Seagulls" golf tournament in late March or early April each year. The tournament is open to all Cape Cod residents and has been played in all types of weather from freezing rain and snow to 90 degree heat. The Hyannisport Club is also known for its prestigious Caddy program. Each summer from July 1 to August 31 the club uses caddies.
