The Rockaway Hunting Club is the oldest country club in the United States, although not originally a Country Club in today's sense of the word. Its principal clientele was the horse set, and it featured Fox Hunting and Steeplechase Racing.
Rockaway's initial fame came from polo, creating a bitter rivalry with Meadow Brook Hunt. By 1888, the two clubs were so superior to all others that a handicap system was created. The Rockaway team won national championships in 1901 and 1902.
