Edgartown Golf Club


Longtime Edgartown Golf Club manager Mark Hess has written a new book as an homage to his place of employment, You Don't Have a Prayer .


A World War II-vintage C47 Skytrain flew over the Edgartown Golf Club Friday during a ceremony dedicated to the heroic life of Ted Morgan.


There were winning golfers — four, to be exact. But the real winners at the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club fall golf tournament, held Sept. 8 at the Edgartown Golf Club, were the children and families of the Vineyard.

The annual golf tournament, now in its 28th year, raised just over $9,000 to support the Boys and Girls Club’s affordable youth programs, most notably the club’s after-school program, which is open to all Island youth in grades K-6 for an annual membership fee of just $20.


This could be you: Owner of a majestic summer island home with a sweeping vista of Edgartown Harbor, Nantucket Sound and Cape Poge gut; Steward of 18 acres of marsh, cliffs and wooded hills on Chappaquiddick’s North Neck area; and, not least, head of the Royal & Ancient Chappaquiddick Links, a nine-hole golf course cut from the land more than 100 years ago.


Bounded by Nature

From Gazette editions of October, 1960:

In one of the major real estate transactions of the year, involving the future of the Edgartown golf course and of golf as it has been played there since 1928, the course is about to pass from the ownership of Cornelius Lee to the Edgartown Golf Club Inc. Mr. Lee stepped down from the presidency last summer, to be succeeded by Robert Brown Jr.


25 Years of Charity Golf

The 25th annual Martha’s Vineyard Boys’ and Girls’ Club fall golf tournament raised $8,000. The tournament was held at the Edgartown Golf Club on Saturday, Sept. 12, and included 22 teams of four golfers. Participants were treated to a cookout between the morning and afternoon double shotgun starts.
