We invite you to visit us soon and discover this special golf experience yourself.
In 1956, Ralph P. Marble bought 400-acres of land on
Nantucket's southern shore with the intention of raising cows for dairy
production. This area of the island was once inhabited by the Wampanoag tribes, who called it "Miacomet" or "The Meeting Place." Thankfully Mr. Marble saw the potential in the landscape and four years later, he began to build Miacomet Golf Course.
In 1963, Miacomet opened as a year-round course for islanders
and visitors alike. The course drew a small constituency of golf devotees from
the recently closed Tupancy Links and has been serving the Nantucket
community ever since.
In the mid-1980's, Ralph Marble sold his land to the
Nantucket Island Land Bank with the hope of preserving this special piece of Nantucket beauty.
In 2003, Miacomet was expanded to 18 holes by
architect Howard Maurer, making Miacomet Golf Course the island's only 18-Hole
public facility. The original 9 holes were completely renovated during the winter of
2008 and the results have been fantastic and award winning.
Miacomet Golf Course continues to serve both the year-round and
seasonal communities of Nantucket as a practice, golf, and meeting facility.
With a fully functional putting green and driving range, both experienced
golfers and beginners alike can perfect their game before hitting the links.
The course is complete with four tee options, challenging holes, and scenic
The restaurant and beverage cart provide patrons with
delicious food, cold drinks and great company.
We are excited to share our beautiful course with you!
