    The history of golf course design in America cannot be told without the names CB MacDonald, Seth Raynor and Charles Banks. Their golf courses are legendary and include such masterpieces as National Golf Links, Deepdale, Fisher's Island and Yale just to name a few. In 1929, Charles Banks was commissioned to create a new golf course in the rolling hills of back country Greenwich, Connecticut which would be known as Tamarack due to a species of tree that thrived on the property. Like his mentors, MacDonald and Raynor, Charles Banks also drew his inspiration from the legendary golf courses of Europe and emulated many of the most interesting holes while adding a twist on their design. Known as "Steam Shovel Charlie" because of his affection for using machinery to move and shape huge amounts of earth, Tamarack combines traditional European design with large push-up greens and enormous bunkers.Tamarack's 55,000 square foot grand clubhouse sits on the highest point of the property and it's the perfect venue for weddings, parties, and special events. Clubhouse services include a fitness center, indoor golf training room, personal training, and other services that are available upon request.Tamarack Country Club is an active country club with a full membership that play over 20,000 rounds annually. General golf activities include member tournaments, outings, summer camps, clinics and private lessons. Tamarack has a full-service restaurant, a complete pool complex, and an active tennis program. Tamarack is extremely busy and the membership is very active. This position has unlimited potential for the right individual.
