DIRECTIONS (From North and South)

Connecticut Turnpike (I-95) to exit 17 (Westport). At the end of the ramp, turn right onto Route 136. Go about 1 mile on Route 136. Turn left on Duck Pond Road. Go 0.3 miles, then left on Harbor Road. Follow Harbor Road to the stop sign before one-way bridge. DO NOT CROSS BRIDGE WITH TRAILER’S OR SUV’S. Turn right just before bridge onto Canal Road. Go 0.25 miles to the end and turn left onto Cockeone Drive. Take your first left onto Spriteview Avenue and then the first right onto Crossway. This will take you to the club.

CPYC shares Bluff Point in a residential neighborhood populated by many young children and pedestrians. Please be mindful of the 15 mph speed limit and obey all stop signs on Saugatuck Island. The extra minute will make your drive safer, more pleasant and benefit our relations with Island residents.
