Sands Point Golf Club

Sands Point Golf Club, designed in 1927 by the legendary American golf course architect Albert Warren “Tillie” Tillinghast, has been both returned to its original glory and subtly updated to accommodate the game as it is played today. The renowned contemporary golf course architect (and Tillinghast specialist) Keith Foster has worked his magic – moving and reworking tees while restoriing bunkering to the famed Tillinghast flat-bottomed style. The result: bunkers are more visible throughout the course and enjoyment is wonderfully enhanced because external distractions are cleverly hidden from sight lines. To play Sands Point is to play the game the way it was meant to be played!

Kim Horan

Kim Horan was raised in Queens, New York, where she worked for her family’s marine supply business, as well as their real estate management firm. As a child, Kim spent many weekends on the water with her parents, who were avid boaters. Kim met John in her high school years and they have been happily married for thirty-six years. They moved from Whitestone to Manhasset in 1980, where Kim raised their three children – Thomas, Karyn and Mary. While residing there, Kim was actively involved in the Manhasset School District. Kim also taught religious education at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, where John and Kim were Pre-Cana Coordinators for more than twelve years. Once her children were older, Kim reentered the workforce as the Assistant to the Director of Building and Grounds for the East Williston School District. Subsequently, Kim worked in the Office for Special Education in the Manhasset School District, where she chose to leave her position to work with her husband as he fulfilled his dreams of opening his own business – Horan Construction Company. Kim has been the Chief Financial Officer at Horan Construction for fifteen years. She is also the co-owner of R Building Management, LLC where she manages properties in both Queens and Nassau Counties. In 1999, Kim and John moved to Upper Brookville, where they currently reside.
