Black Hall Club

Black Hall is a private golf club located in the Connecticut shoreline community of Old Lyme.  As the top rated private club in southeastern Connecticut, Black Hall and its members embrace the ideals and traditions of the game of golf.  The golf course was designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, the routing offers great variety and challenges throughout.  The many specimen trees and the gentle rolling hills made this an optimal setting for Jones to work.  Black Hall stimulates you in a serene setting and is enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.


Established in 1965, the club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015.  As part of the celebration, Black Hall played host to the 113th Connecticut Amateur Championship in June of that year.  The club's history and its path to the present is very important to the membership.  More important is the future; as we continue to update our facilities and make improvements to the golf course in order to be in a position of strength and stability for the next 50 years and beyond.


Black Hall has played host to all of the major tournaments in Connecticut including the Connecticut Open, the CT PGA Championship, the Mid Am, the Tri-States and the Women's Amateur Championship to name a few.  Black Hall has also been host to several qualifiers for U.S. Opens, U.S. Amateurs, U.S Mid-Ams, Travelers Championships and in 2016 hosted the qualifier for the U.S. Amateur Fourball Championship.  In 2018 we are proud to host the Connecticut Section PGA Assistant Professional Championship and will be home to the 2021 Connecticut Women's Open and the 2025 Connecticut Open Championship.
