  • Originally known as the Westchester Biltmore, Westchester Country Club started out in the Twenties as a kind of US version of Geneagles, albeit not so attractive, with an impressive membership to match. Walter Travis created the two eighteens here, dubbed the West and the South, and the championships almost immediately started rolling in. In the Fifties Westchester became comparable to Winged Foot in its stellar membership, among which numbered such luminaries as Howard Hughes and Johnny Carson; more recent notables have included Barclays magnate Robert Diamond. The club's Westchester Classic tournament, which was first begun in the Sixties, has been incorporated into the US Tour's FedEx Cup (which is underwritten by Barclays). It is the West on which the competitions are held, and though the layout measures only 6174 meters, the course has never been shamed by any of the outstanding golfers who have played it.

    Rugged. Very challenging in a good way. Some really great golf holes here. Loved #18 finishing hole.
