The Huntington Crescent Club is a private, member-owned, family oriented country club located on Long Island's beautiful North Shore. Huntington Crescent Club members enjoy a premier 18-hole golf course spread over 175 acres of lush greenerery, 16 tennis courts including Har-Tru and bentgrass, of which seven are highly prized courts, a gorgeous heated pool facility equipped with full bar and snack bar on site, in addition to  top quality dining in our newly renovated Club House.
 
The Huntington Crescent Club is rich in both history and tradition. Originally known the 1880's as the Crescent Athletic Club of Brooklyn, Huntingon Crescent Club has an honorable history.  It began with a desire to form a social and athletic club which eventually evolved into a premier golf and social family club. The 1,500 “new moons” who founded the Crescent Athletic Club in 1888 were primarily interested in lacrosse, baseball, and track. In 1896 they built a nine-hole course adjacent to the anchorage off Bay Ridge, on the east cliff of the Narrows overlooking New York Bay; it was expanded to 18 holes three years later.  Even then, the property was the target of developers, so the club began looking for greener pastures.

In 1930 our forefathers, searching for a country home, purchased an estate in Huntington.The Huntington Crescent Club was formed in 1931 on the former Roy Rainey Estate with 300 acres of rolling woodland, formal gardens, and a frontage on Huntington Bay. Plans originally consisted of 24 tennis courts, fields for soccer, cricket, baseball, lacrosse, polo, a toboggan slide, a yachting anchorage, and cabanas at the beach, but  were eventually stifled by the Depression; but not the golf course.
 
The architectural team of Emmet, Emmet and Tull designed two 18-hole golf courses; the shorter East Course opened on July 4, 1931, with the stronger West Course following the next spring.
 
The 1930s and 1940s were difficult years. The beach was sold and a good portion of the remaining property was developed, with the West Course all but destroyed.  Only the front nine of the East Course remained relatively intact; the back includes holes from the old West Course. What remained was a pretty parkland setting, featuring numerous swales, gullies and elevated tees and greens.  Some of the greens are fiercely bunkered, while others are relatively unprotected.
 
Today’s descendants of the new moons enjoy a variety of facilities and our newly renovated clubhouse stands where the estate mansion once stood, as a wonderful reminder of the founder’s grandiose plans.

The Huntington Crescent Club is a place for families and we strive to not only include children's activities, but to ensure that their time spent here becomes an integral part of family tradition.  There are children's programs in golf, tennis and a swim team as well as annual events tailored to the imagination of the littlest among us.

The Huntington Crescent Club's rich history and fine tradition has made it one of the most prestigious clubs on Long Island.
