Engineers Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Roslyn Harbor, New York.
Engineers Country Club first opened for play in 1918. The course was designed by Herbert Strong. The course was renovated in the 1990's by Tripp Davis
Engineers is an old traditional-style course built on hilly terrain. The fairways are open and the rough is very thick. When originally designed, architect Herbert Strong's goal was to create 18 unique greens. As a result, the greens are fast and often compared to table tops or the greens at Augusta National. Many players consider Engineers the most imaginative and one of the best courses on Long Island.
There are no water hazards on the course, but there are a few sand bunkers that can affect your score. The greens can be treacherous.

Miss the green and or catch a bad roll on your putt and you will understand the legend.
Engineers Country Club in 1920 was the first course in the world to host an international golf competition. Both Bobby Jones and Gene Sarazen participated. The club hosted the 1919 PGA, the 1920 U.S. Amateur, 1999 US Open qualifier,
