Overlooked by the New York skyline, the Gary Player-designed course at Manhattan Woods Golf Club lies within a 200-acre wooded estate in the lower Hudson Valley.

Country Club of Troy

52nd New York - Best in Area

Laid out on a hilly, 325-acre woodland site, the old course at the Country Club of Troy was Walter Travis’s final design. Recently extended during restoration work by Tom Doak, it’s still short by modern day standards.

Rockaway Hunting Club

53rd New York - Best in Area

Members of the Rockaway Hunting Club on Brosewere Bay have played on their 18-hole layout for over a hundred years now. Devereux Emmet set out the original course in 1915 before A. W. Tillinghast added seven new holes a decade later. Gil Hanse ran a restoration project for the club in 2009.


54th New York - Best in Area

Devereux Emmet extended the 9-hole course at Mahopac Golf and Beach Club to an 18-hole track in 1913. Today, this engaging layout measures just over 6,500 yards from the tips, featuring fescue-fringed bunkers and captivating greens.

Siwanoy Country Club was incorporated in 1901, when a 9-hole course was also established. The club moved in 1913, engaging Donald Ross to set out a new 18-course layout, and this course hosted the first USPGA Championship three years later.
