Ocean House offers avid golfers the chance to play exclusive courses, all less than 30 minutes from the resort.
Lake of Isles
Only a short drive away, Lake of Isles has been recognized by both professional and recreational golfers as one of the premiere golf courses in New England and has consistently been ranked among the top golf facilities in the country. Designed by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones, this facility includes 36 unique holes carved from the natural topography that surrounds the 90-acre Lake of Isles. Featuring a public 18-hole North Course and a private 18-hole South Course, Lake of Isles offers guests the opportunity to test their golf skills over two challenging layouts.
Aside from the 7,300-yard private South Course, the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse at Lake of Isles is also open to Ocean House guests. Cut deep into the side of a high hill overlooking the lake, the clubhouse showcases rustic Craftsman design with cedar shake siding, stone pillars and entry towers. Guests can also enjoy a casual meal or cocktail at Matches Tavern, shop at the award-winning gift shop, and take advantage of the on-site men’s and women’s locker rooms.
The Mountain Course at the Preserve Sporting Club
Guests of Ocean House have special access to golf and other experiences at the Preserve Sporting Club & Residences, a short drive inland from Watch Hill. This 3,500 acre, world-class sporting resort is the newest addition to the Ocean House Management Collection.
Experience golf on the championship Mountain Course. Carved from an untamed American wilderness that challenges your skills, engages your mind, and touches your heart, the course was designed by award-winning golf architect Robert McNeil and the Northeast Golf Company. The 18-hole, par 3 course, along with its hybrid cross country par 34 configuration, stand as two of the most challenging yet playable executive courses in the Northeast. Honoring the land’s unspoiled character, the course’s variety of tees test players at all skill levels. Winner of the American Association of Golf Architects’ 2015 Design Excellence Award.
