Named after the nightjar bird that can be heard around the golf course, Whippoorwill Club dates back to the early 1920s when Donald Ross fashioned an 18-hole layout on the east side of Whippoorwill Road in Armonk.

Perhaps due to the club acquiring some adjacent land, Charles Banks, an associate of the late, great architect Seth Raynor, was called in to redesign the layout only a few years after it had been established by Ross.

Banks moved holes 4 - 9 and 12 - 14 to the other side of the road and the fairways in this section are routed over undulating, wooded terrain with the five par fours at 5, 7, 9, 12 and 14 considered the most difficult on the scorecard.

The lush, tree-lined holes at Whippoorwill tumble over the landscape and such is the rolling nature of the terrain – even on some of the two tiered putting surfaces – that it can sometimes feel as if an even stance can only be found on the tee box of the hole being played!

The 226-yard 8th is one of four par threes on the course and it’s regarded as the signature hole on the property. A small waterfall behind the green adds spectacle to a subtly raised green site protected by two bunkers on either side of the putting surface. A par score looks reasonably attainable on the tee but not many will walk away with a three on their card.
