Sankaty Head Golf Club, is one of the Eastern-most golf courses in Massachusetts, perched on the edge of Nantucket Island in Siasconset, Massachusetts. The course was designed by Emerson Armstrong and opened in 1923.

It's a gem. If you get a chance to play it do it. One of the great links courses in this country. And during the summer they run a caddie camp, the last one in the country.

Greens fees not cheap but not exorbitant either. Course was in great shape and really beautiful, especially from the fifth tee right beside the Sankaty Head Lighthouse. Great walking course, pull carts available. I don't think visitors can get on during the summer, but offseason, there was no problem.

The venue, food and staff were all outstanding and made this a memorable occasion. We enjoyed the wedding ceremony at the Beach Club venue and the reception at the Golf Club venue.

Sankaty Head Golf Club is a private course but the public can play it before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. My friends and I just returned from Nantucket after playing this course and we certainly lucked out. We were only on island for 1 day and the weather forecast looked bleak. We took the Fast Ferry from Hyannis in... More

This (although) private club, has some of the greatest grounds anywhere. Excellent staff, both the golf staff, pro, and the clubhouse. From the early 1920's, this place has modern golf covered, as well as the real feel of the history of the game.

I attended a wedding reception at the Sankaty Head Golf Club. The event was everything it could be, but the setting atop a hill on Nantucket was breathtaking: mozzafiato, as the Italians say. I don't recall anything similar, except in 19th century paintings of the New England coast. When it came time for pictures, the backdrop was the Sankaty lighthouse... More
