  • Five Stars on Yelp!

    The Marina is typical New England style, no pool no frills. What KYC offers is a well protected from harsh weather marina. KYC is a GREAT area for a weather layover. 
    The Chart Room Restaurant offers great sunsets and popular drinks, the food is okay, just okay. As stated the showers are generous in size and water is very hot and plentiful!

    Yard staff is better than great!  The yard staff understand your needs and can attack most problems on a very timely basis.  I would stay there anytime, as the yard staff is the draw for me.

We’ll make up foursomes mixing players of various abilities to even the teams as much as possible. 4-ball scramble format. Then let ’em have at it to see who can go low.
