Lake Shore Country Club

I had the chance to play Lake Shore Country Club along Lake Michigan just north of Chicago. The Donald Ross course was recently redone and is sparkling.   The course is pristine and varied. Much of the property and holes reminds me of Chicago Golf Club and Medinah (not shockingly given its relative proximity).   […]

The Ridgewood Country Club

Ridgewood is a New Jersey based course designed by Tillinghast. The course is rated in the top 100 in the US for Golf Magazine and the second hundred list for Golf Digest. The course has a similar feeling to other Tillinghast gems in the region such as Winged Foot, Bethpage Black, Quaker Ridge etc.). I […]

Whispering Pines

Located a few hours North of Houston, Whispering Pines offers a serene and beautiful golfing experience. The property is so large it takes a number of minutes to drive from the front gate on the property to the club house. Members are offered cottages to stay in on grounds and the hospitality of the staff […]

Ohoopee Match Club

One of the great new courses built in the last decade, Ohoopee has moved into a top 10 overall experience in golf. Casual, and chill, fun, and irreverent, the club provides all that is good about the new world of golf. The course is quirky and different (which I like a lot!)… there are 22 […]

Bayonne Golf Club

Located just a few miles south of lower Manhattan this modern course delights every time I get the chance to play. A feat of engineering the course is made from the dirt dredged from the Hudson River. Piles of sand make the course hilly and somewhat mountainous at times. Really enjoy it here and definitely […]

Silo Ridge

This Discovery Land property located an hour and half north of NYC boasts a recently renovated and immaculately maintained Fazio designed golf course.Discovery Property is the development company behind the Yellowstone Club and Bakers Bay. Members of Silo Ridge golf course must own a home (or land) on the property. In addition to the golf […]

Meadow Brook Club

New York City and the tristate area has so much wonderful “top 100” quality golf it is often times possible to overlook some gems. Meadowbrook (for me at least) is one such gem. A lovely cross between the feel of Garden City Men’s Club, Pipping Rock and Chicago Golf Club. Meadowbrook has everything a golf […]

Great Horse

Built in 2015, Great Horse is a relatively new entry to the golf community and one not widely known (yet). A number of my friends from the Hartford, CT area (where I grew up) have been sharing with me the news of this up-and-coming club for the past few years and today I finally got […]

Apawamis and Fenway

Grounded in NY during the global pandemic of 2020, the golf courses slowly have begun allowing guests. I recently had the chance to play two wonderful local Westchester gems: Apawamis and Fenway. Apawamis landed a greenskeeper from Oakmont a few years back and the course was in perfect shape in late May. I had played […]
