Hi.

Welcome to my blog. 

Wykagyl

Wykagyl Golf Club is one of the three great Clubs in Westchester County; it is only a couple of miles from Winged Foot and Quaker Ridge, making this one of the most concentrated spots of fabulous golf courses..

This is a link to the Club’s website: http://www.wykagylcc.org.

The address is:

Wykagyl Country Club,
1195 North Ave,
New Rochelle,
New York (NY) 10804,
USA

Tel: +1 (0) 914 636 8700

The Club’s website has one of the most extensive history sections, with interesting information and photos of the development of the Club since its origins in 1898. Originally located in Pelham, the Club had to move to its current location in 1903. The Club’s name is derived from the Dutch words wigwos (birch bark) and keag (country), the country of the birch bark. 

The original design was by Lawrence E. Van Etten, who had joined the Club in 1904. Subsequent years saw improvements: “in 1919, Donald Ross redesigned several holes, in the process introducing superior playing angles (notably at the 8th and 15th holes) and adding several bunkers, including the Hell’s Half Acre on 12. In the 1930s, A.W. Tillinghast eliminated the original 1st and 2nd holes in order to provide room for a practice area, added the stretch of the current 4th through 6th holes, introduced a completely new 17th hole, and shortened the 18th by 165 yards, making it a par four. Play on the Tillinghast-modified course began on Labor Day, 1931”.

The Club also has paddle courts, an olympic size pool, four tennis courts and bowling lanes.
