Golf Course Information
Everything has a beginning...and you might say that the beginning of Wing Point was in 1902! Some may argue for 1903 and others for another year, but the Scott Fitzgerald types who summered on the Point around the turn of the century scooped a few holes in the apple orchard for their first "game" in the vicinity of our present 7th tee.
It was the summer of 1902, according to Mrs. Connie McMicken...She was here! (Mr. and Mrs. Maurice McMicken, affectionately known as "Mickey and Connie," have the longest continuous membership in both the original Wing Point Golf and Country Club, and its successor, the present Wing Point Golf & Country Club.)
By 1916, the Wing Pointers of the time became more serious about golf and developed more of the orchard and meadow property into a six-hole course, most of it skirting the lower portion of the present course, south of the county road (Wing Point Way).
In 1920 they incorporated the original Wing Point Golf & Country Club with a capital of $10,000, which a few years later was enlarged to $15,000. They were now able to enlarge the course to a 9-holer and to build a clubhouse in 1925 (which was situated just east of our present 7th tee). The course had sand greens which some of our old-timers still mumble about. Apparently it wasn't St. Andrews. But the clubhouse? It became headquarters for some of the most convivial merrymaking the next 37 years ever knew!
