Detailed description of Westchester Country Club -West

The Westchester Country Club (or Westchester Biltmore Country Club)was founded by John McEntee Bowman, who hired Walter Travis to design two golf courses in Rye, New York as a luxury resort hotel. The West Course was designed for championship play and has hosted PGA tournaments since 1963. The South Course was originally designed for women and higher handicap golfers. Around 1997, the South Course was reconstructed with longer tees, new sand and grass bunkers, water hazards, and some new greens. The South Course is now more competitive with the West Course to accommodate low handicap golfers.

Westchester Country Club hosted its first PGA tournament in 1963 with the Thunderbird Classic. The Thunderbird was also held in 1964 and for the last time in 1965. There was no PGA tournament at Westchester Country Club in 1966, and starting in 1967 the West Course has annually hosted the Westchester Classic stop on the PGA Tour. (The tournament name has changed several times since then due to sponsorship switches, and is now called The Barclays.) Starting in 2007, The Barclays will be held during August and will be played at rotating sites in the New York Metropolitan Area. Westchester Country Club will continue to host the majority, but not all of the annual stops in the New York region

The WCC west course is gorgeous! So many trees have been removed, the vistas from almost any hole make it a beautiful course. The greens were impossibly fast. Yes, if you hit 300 yard drives in the fairway it might not be that much of a challenge from the blues.... Go try the tips and stay out of the rough! Well worth playing. Think it has been under rated for too long.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
