The Lido

Post by migolfer »

For golf fans of C.B. Macdonald:

The Lido Golf Club is being remade. See:

The Lido Golf Club – designed by C.B. Macdonald - opened on long island in 1914. Like all of Macdonald’s routings, The Lido included many classic templates such as the Alps, Redan, and Edan. The Lido was touted by many at the time of its opening to be comparable in shot quality to Pine Valley and National Golf Links - another C.B. Macdonald design. Sadly, the course was demolished by the U.S. Navy after the Navy purchased the property for use as a military base during World War II. Ever since it disappeared, the promise of The Lido has intrigued many as one of the great lost wonders of the golf world. We are excited to announce that The Lido will soon be brought back to life.

The Keiser brothers are building a private club whose mission is to restore and preserve the great masterpiece of C.B. Macdonald. With the help of a private membership, Michael and Chris Keiser will build The Lido on pure sand dunes just north of Sand Valley.
What is it about Long Island that attracts such world-class golf courses?
It's nice that Doak is doing this in Wisconsin, but it will be private. <expletive deleted>
