New Providence



From the earliest visits to this beautiful location, Ernie and the team knew that Albany was going to be something special. This is an exceptional ocean-front layout, both from an aesthetic and strategic standpoint. The dunes look natural and some of the out-of-play areas feature native grasses and plant materials, so the course looks like it belongs in its environment.

Albany is a links-style championship golf course featuring five par-5s, five par-3s and eight par-4s. Ernie and the firm’s senior design associate knew that the shot values of a links-style layout would be ideal given its proximity to the ocean, where the variable wind speed and direction makes the course play different from one day to the next. Truly a beautiful and enduring test of golf.
