McGregor Links is a Devereux Emmet design built in 1921. McGregor Links is a semi private club with approximately 250 members. McGregor Links has hosted seven New York State Amateur Golf Championships and two US Open local qualifiers. The club is located just outside beautiful Saratoga Springs in the Town of Wilton. McGregor's unique links style layout was influenced by many Scottish designs featuring little bluestem and native grasses surrounding each fairway. McGregor Links is celebrating its centennial year in 2021 with many events planned for members and public.
