Located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, Gibson Island is situated at the convergence of the Magothy River and the Chesapeake Bay. It is an enchanting, two by three mile private island accessed from the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay by a man-made causeway. The topography varies and includes low-lying, tidal wetlands, a 44-acre fresh water pond, and rolling hills. Home sites account for about one third of the land, the remaining two thirds of land is devoted to open space, natural woods, a bird sanctuary and recreation.
Gibson Island Club opened in 1921 under the leadership of the Island’s founder Stuart Symington, Jr. Symington decided on Frederick Olmstead to devise the master plan for the Island, but wisely chose Charles Blair Macdonald and his associate Seth J. Raynor to design and build our historic golf course.
In recent years, the Golf Course has undergone significant improvements in conditioning, practices, and daily preparation. In the fall of 2021, Lester George rebuilt a Redan template par 3 to add to the golf experience of our Macdonald & Raynor designed course.
