The Metropolis Country Club course has been touched by several prominent architects down the years: originally designed by Herbert Strong, it was remodelled by A. W. Tillinghast, reconfigured by Joe Finger then lengthened by Ken Dye in the late 1990s.

Forse Design competed a restoration at Metropolis Country Club in 2015 and Ron Forse commented as follows in an interview with Golf Course Architecture magazine:

“Strong was an Englishman and did a lot of work in the New York metropolitan area. His design at Metropolis CC, which was completed in 1922, has brilliant routing and you have to be here for a while to understand how good a job of the routing he did.

He’s a relatively unknown classic architect in the US, yet his work is absolutely superb. His style was different to other guys, but his expertise is in routing golf courses, and Metropolis is one of the best jobs of routing a course I’ve seen. He capitalised on every golfing advantage the land offered. There’s a tremendous variety in the setting and the contouring of the green settings. There’s not a lot of heavy contouring in the greens or the routing, and they’re generally subtle. But like a good piece of music, it takes time and observation to notice how well designed the greens are.”
