Short History

In 1956, a man named Ralph P. Marble purchased 400 acres of land on the southern shore of Nantucket with the purpose of raising cows for dairy production. Four years later, he began to construct the Miacomet Golf Course. In 1963, the course opened to the public, islanders, and visitors alike.

In the mid-80s, Marble decided to sell his property to the Nantucket Island Land Bank. His wish was to protect the beautiful area from any future disturbances. This was one of the Land Bank’s initial acquisitions and was purchased as a nine-hole course, ensuring that it would remain a public recreational facility in the future. In 2003, Howard Maurer expanded the course to eighteen holes. All nine original holes were fully renovated and reopened in the Spring of 2007.
