Anglebrook Golf Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Lincolndale, New York.
Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed the golf course at Anglebrook Golf Club.
Opened in May of 1998, Anglebrook was recognized by Golf Digest as the 16th best course in New York state while it was less than a year old. Jones had the full run of a 240-acre canvas and although his legacy had long been secure, he enhanced his reputation as one of golf's most brilliant designers one last time.
In keeping with his philosophy, Jones incorporated the layout into the existing terrain and natural contours of the land. The course is classically designed, offering traditional shot values and a minimum of blind shots. Four sets of tees, wide landing areas and a multitude of bailout options provide a wonderful level of playability. The greens are large, averaging nearly 7,000 square feet, and are characterized by numerous pockets and tiers, so accurate approach shots are essential to scoring. Anglebrook measures from 4,700 to its championship tees at 7,001.
Low handicappers have the opportunity to reach each of the par-5s in 2 shots, with the exception of the 602-yard fourth, ranked Anglebrook's most difficult hole. With its creative mix of long and short par-4s, Anglebrook favors neither the long or short hitter. Members consider the 305-yard dogleg right par-4 sixth among the most unique and aesthetically pleasing holes.
There are 54 of Jones' unmistakable amoebae-shaped bunkers on the course, yet none are as talked about the one in the middle of the 18th fairway, which rests 235 yards from the back tees. The finishing hole plays 455 yards and features a fairway sloping towards wetlands and a narrow entrance to an elevated and large contoured green.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,001 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4,745 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 4, a par-5 that plays to 602 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 10, a par-3 that plays to 193 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 4, the 602 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Anglebrook Golf Club is # 10, a 514 yard par-5.
Membership at Anglebrook is limited to 300 members. It can be awfully nice to be one of them, or their guest.
