LINKS List: The Best Island Greens

Galen Hall Golf Club Island Green

Galen Hall Golf Club, 15th hole
Wernersville, Pa.

Although A.W. Tillinghast removed the island green at Baltusrol when he expanded the New Jersey club’s 18 holes to 36, he had designed a moat hole of his own at Galen Hall just the year before. The 15th is widely believed to have the oldest island green, and the 10-foot-wide moat is four to 10 feet below the circular green, catching all but the most solid tee shots.
