History of the Club

The Muttontown Club is a prestigious Country Club located in East Norwich, New York on the north shore of Long Island, New York, on a magnificent estate with rolling hills and gardens.  The Club is home to an 18-hole golf course, which opened in 1962.  The Muttontown Club is one of the most distinguished clubs in the area.  Its elegant clubhouse, a Georgian mansion, houses three dining rooms, conference rooms, lockers rooms, a fitness facility, card rooms, a pro shop, cart room and administrative offices.  The clubhouse reflects the special qualities of the membership—elegant, distinguished and understated.  The club also boasts a tennis and pool complex which includes an Olympic size pool, tennis courts, locker facilities and a poolside café.

The mansion which serves as The Muttontown Club's distinctive clubhouse was originally constructed by Howard C. Brokaw in 1919 and took five years to complete.  It became known as "The Chimneys" because of the many 26 fireplaces and 13 chimneys which are spread through the 44 room Georgian mansion.

The founders of The Muttontown Club believed that the magnificent estate with its rolling hills and gardens would be ideally suited to become a golf and country club.

Their dream became a reality in 1960 when the estate was purchased by the Club's founders.  The Muttontown Club is now regarded as one of the most beautiful country clubs in the New York metropolitan area.
