The Plandome Golf Club was an afterthought, a fallback position. When the club’s founding fathers purchased the middle part of the Leeds estate in 1928, their concept was a prestigious residential development. The property extended along Stonytown Road, from Plandome Road to Port Washington Boulevard. However, The Stock Market Crash of 1929 intervened, and the land was for a golf club instead. Fortunately so, for aside from its challenge, Plandome is perhaps, the most picturesque golf course in Nassau County. Its first hole may well be the toughest opening hole in the entire Met Area.
