Rye Golf Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Rye, New York.
The Rye Golf Club golf course first opened for play in 1921. The Par-71 course was designed by Devereaux Emmet.
The 126 acre facility is a member only club owned by the City of Rye. The club offers a short, yet challenging 18-hole golf course with spectacular water views of Long Island Sound.
The Rye Golf Club golf course is the only course in Westchester where you can hit a ball into Long Island Sound. Hole #12, a 315-yard par four brings the sound innto play if you are a big hitter and go for the green. Hoel #17, a par three with a small green and windy conditions gives you a final chance for a "Sound" shot.
Rye Golf CCourse plays to 6,295 yards for a course rating of 70.3 and a slope rating of 123.
The course is owned by the City of Rye, NY, and is open to members and their guests. I recommend you find a member and beg an invitation.
But, you don't have to be a member to dine at the co-located Whitby Castle.
Whitby Castle was built in 1852 as a private residence for Mr. William Chapman. In 1886, the Chapman’s sold the house to the Park family of Rye who lived there for 25 years. In 1921, the 40 acres of the original property were combined with the adjoining Allen Estate and became Rye Country Club later sold and renamed Rye Wood Country Club. In 1965, the City of Rye purchased the property to be renamed Rye Golf Club as it known today.
Whitby Castle is open to the public. The interior boasts restaurants with intimate dining rooms, beautifully appointed bar, reception space, bridal suite and elegant ballrooms.
