Charles MacDonald, a member of the Links Club, located at 36 East 62nd Street in New York City was the driving force behind the creation of the Links Golf Club on Shelter Rock Road in Roslyn, Long Island.  MacDonald (who is mentioned in the article below) also designed the National Links golf course at Shinnecock Hills -- a course which the article claims was the greatest course on earth, that is, until the Links Golf Club.  The National Links course still exist today.

Here is an example of a chip from the Links Club in NYC:
