Mink Meadows Golf Club: Ideal Location
Mink Meadows Golf Club’s location is ideal if you’re looking to be away from summer crowds. It lies adjacent to Tashmoo Woods, a low-density enclave of private homes and condominiums, and is nearby the 90-acre West Chop woods nature preserve.
The town of Vineyard Haven with two supermarkets, two movie theaters, two seafood markets, various boutiques, shops, restaurants and much more is just a five-minute drive away. And if you are thinking of using your home in the off-season, Vineyard Haven is the most year-round location of the five towns on the island.
Private clubs in the area include the West Chop Club and Vineyard Haven Yacht Club. Membership in both clubs is dependent on sponsorship by members and membership availability.
The Golf Club
Mink Meadows Golf Club is a nine-hole facility that offers a challenging 18-hole layout. Measuring 3,078 yards on the front nine and 3,139 on the back from the men’s tees, the course is in excellent condition and features rolling terrain with ocean views over Vineyard Sound to Woods Hole and the Elizabeth Islands.
The women’s and senior’s tees have recently been reformatted in support of the USGA’s “Play It Forward” program to provide an enjoyable experience for all. The course is open year-round, weather permitting. Send more more information about Mink Meadows!
