Maple Moor Golf Course

Maple Moor was named for the abundance of maple trees on the land, and the course's property was originally part of the Griffen family farm. When acquired by the Westchester County Parks Commission in 1925, there was already a 9-hole golf course on the property, but by the end of 1927, all 18 holes were unveiled to the public.

Maple Moor was recently renovated with new bunkers, sand traps, cart paths, irrigation systems, drainage systems with retention ponds, as well as extensive renovations around the course.

The course also has practice greens and a catering facility in the clubhouse.

Mohansic Golf Course

Rolling hills and moderately steep slopes combine to make Mohansic the most challenging of Westchester County's golf courses. Its many tight holes and uphill, downhill and sidehill shots are excellent tests of golfers' abilities. 

All 18 tees have recently been fully renovated, several greens have been upgraded, and there is a driving range.

Pehquenakonck Country Club

Pehquenakonck Country Club is a semi-private golf course located in North Salem. If you are looking for a challenging, family friendly golf course that is impeccably maintained and affordable, then this is a perfect place to play with friends and family.

The nine hole course, built in 1923, is nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of Westchester County. You can expect many challenging shots as there are plenty of elevation changes and two sets of tees, so you can actually play the course twice with completely different looks at the fairways and greens. The fairways vary in width, and the greens are well maintained with bordering sand traps.

Pound Ridge Golf Club

Designed by Hall of Fame architect Pete Dye, Pound Ridge Golf Club presents as stern a test as any in the world today.

“If you create in the mind of a golfer that he can remember some of the holes, that’s extraordinary. And then, if you make it look, and it will look very demanding, if it’s still playable you’ve hit a home run.”

-Pete Dye

Dramatic rock formations have been left onsite, creating one of the most visually stunning settings for golf in the U.S. with more than 14,000-linear-feet of rock wall surrounding trees, wetlands and water hazards.
