Since opening in 1995, Colonial Springs has been one of Long Island’s most popular golf courses. With its challenging twenty-seven hole layout, originally designed by Arthur Hills, and its convenient location just east of the Nassau/Suffolk border, Colonial Springs is easy to get to and fun to play. With beauty and ambiance, Colonial Springs is Long Island’s most alluring course and with one look at our grounds, it’s easy to understand why. Colonial Springs’s spaciousness, sandy terrain, and extensive oak and pine covering make it an ideal location for a top-quality golf course. Additionally, it’s natural beauty and sprawling hills provided the perfect inspiration for 27 holes of world championship-caliber golf. In 2004, Colonial Springs announced its plan to convert to a private, members-only club and hired world-renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. to take the course to the next level. Over three seasons, Mr. Jones’s work was carved into Colonial’s sandy soil. The final stage, the renovation of the Pines nine, was completed in 2007.
“Our extensive renovation should lift Colonial Springs to rank among the top private courses on golf-rich Long Island. Players who knew the ‘old Colonial’ will be amazed and inspired by the variety and the beauty of the challenge laid out before them.”
With renovations completed, the early reviews were in: Golf Digest nominated Colonial Springs for the ‘Best Renovation’ in 2007. With courses in 38 countries, Jones sets the standard for quality golf course design. “We strive to create high-quality golf courses that appear as if they were designed by nature,” says Robert Trent Jones, Jr. “Our courses are of the earth, but they are for our spirit.”
