The Douglaston Yacht ClubCome Experience the Community!

The entire community of Douglaston, Queens is situated in and around the famous Douglaston Yacht Club. What is special about this club? What can you expect to see when you visit? For starters, the Douglaston Yacht Club is near the waterfront area of northern Douglaston. It is a part of the Douglaston Country Club, near the famous Douglas Manor.

Here visitors can find numerous community events, including the Douglaston Chess Congress annual championships. The club building has actually been standing since the year 1819. The Van Zandts were responsible for the construction of the house. By the time community founder George Douglas bought the property in 1862, the house was standing, though it didn’t stop him from adding to it. William P. Douglas inherited it. When did the yacht club get started? In the last 25 years of the 19th century, pioneers like J.P. Morgan, J.G. Bennett, Thomas Lipton got together and formed a yacht club, which was ideal for watching the races. In 1927, the Douglaston Yacht Squadron was founded with the intention of encouraging interest in the forgotten sport of yachting. This is a mansion of a home and is indeed a spectacle to come see.

To this day, the Douglaston Yacht Club remains active, hosting all sorts of activities like games, fairs, dinner dances, government meetings and even birthday parties and holiday get-togethers. Today, visitors can enjoy a full size pool, bowling lanes, tennis courts, as well as a bar and dining area. The Yacht Squadron also organizes nautical events. Last but not least, you can come see the Douglaston Club golf course, with its 18-hole par 67 competition.

There is plenty to do at the club and the landmark site of the Douglaston Yacht Club. It’s not only a piece of history, it’s a great deal of fun for residents and visitors alike!
