Pelham Bay Park (Split Rock course)

3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Pelham Bay Park (Split Rock course) Est. 1935

Where2Golf says: 

The Pelham Bay Golf Course and adjoining Split Rock, are two of the six courses owned by New York City and operated by American Golf. The usually higher rated Split Rock layout is a well-regarded golf course, which combines a good layout with several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined parkland layout will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area.
