MYOPIA HUNT CLUB, South Hamilton, Massachusetts
Myopia Hunt Club is a private country club at 435 Bay Road in South Hamilton, Massachusetts founded in 1882. The five founders of the Hunt Club all wore glasses, hence its name, Myopia. Originally intended for hunting and riding, the club became well known for golf. The U.S. Open was held at the club in 1898, 1901, 1905, and 1908. The 72-hole winning score by Fred Herd in 1898 was 328, a record high that still stands today. Herbert Corey Leeds was the course designer. The first nine was completed in 1896, but the second nine was not finished until 1901, so the 1898 U.S. Open was actually played on eight rounds of nine holes.
The 18-hole "Myopia Hunt" course features 6,440 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 69.4 and it has a slope rating of 120 on Bent grass. Designed by Herbert Leeds/(R) Geoffrey S. Cornish, ASGCA, the Myopia Hunt golf course opened in 1894.
