The Rockaway Hunting Club, founded in 1878, warmly welcomes men and women visitors from kindred historic golf clubs around the world to play our challenging links course and to enjoy the traditional ambience of our members-only Club. Our Board has identified a select group of clubs whose members we wish to encourage to visit the Club and are inviting their members to play our golf course when visiting the New York City area. If your club has received our letter invitation, you are welcome to visit RHC with the following procedures to apply:
