Detailed description of Inwood Country Club

Inwood Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Inwood, New York, on the South Shore of Long Island just minutes from Manhattan and Kennedy Airport

Inwood Country Club first opened for play in 1901. Originally established as a nine-hole course in 1901, it was expanded to an eighteen hole layout in 1906. The course was designed by Dr. William Exton and Arthur Thatcher. Herbert Strong (1911), Hal Purdy (1959), Frank Duane (1972), and Tom Doak (1998) have done renovations/redesigns.

The Inwood Country Club Golf Course has very lush fairways, greens that putt true, and beautiful views of the Jamaica Bay. The course was designed with the intermediate player in mind. The fairways are predominantly flat, but there are some mounds that can cause uneven lies. There are two double-tiered undulating greens. There are protected wetlands, the Jamaica Bay, a creek, and four ponds that come into play on over half the holes. Inwood is a challenging course with great views, especially back 9. Every round is different with different wind conditions

Inwood played a significant role in the history of golf. Bobby Jones won his first major here, the 1923 U.S. Open, and Walter Hagen won the first of his five PGA Championships at Inwood. Hole #10, a 106-yard, par 3, is the shortest par 3 in U.S. Open history. The signature hole is #18, a 408-yard, par 4, which has a water channel in front of its slightly sloped green. There is a plaque on the right side of the fairway on this hole where Bobby Jones hit the shot that won him the 1923 U.S. Open.

Inwood plays to 6,647 yards from the tips for a par of 71. The course rating is 72.8 with a slope rating of 137. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels. Greens and fairways are bent grass.
