Detailed description

The Golf Course at Seawane Club first opened for play in 1927. The course was designed by Devereux Emmet. Frank Duane (1964) and Stephen Kay (1988) have done redesigns on this course.

The course was built on the land that had once been the John Auerbach estate. In 1914, an Indian Grave was discovered on the Hewlett estate of John N. Auerbach. Among the findings were skeletal remains, arrow and spear heads, and a large quantity of copper beads known by the Indians as "Seawane." Auerbach anglicized the name to Seawane, chose it for his estate, and the name was later used for Seawane Club.
