The Great Rock Golf Club is a 6,254-yard par-71 laid out over Wading River's hilly terrain. It is a shotmaker's course that demands precision off the tee and, thanks to its lightning-fast greens, plenty of skill with the putter. The uphill par-4 10th is a member of Newsday's Dream 18 and Golfing Magazine's Long Island Dream Club.
