However, this is a private course generally playable only by members and their guests.
Private club; visitors/guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Quaker Ridge is predominantly a walking course. Caddies available at all times.
Quaker Ridge, host to the 1997 Walker Cup matches, was formed in 1916 by a group of businessmen who bought the fledgling (but ailing) Metropolitan Golf Links. The club inherited a nine hole course, which had been laid out by John Duncan Dunn on 125 acres of Quaker Ridge property. Albert Tillinghast was commissioned to redesign 7 of the original holes and build 11 new ones, the new course opening in 1918.
Earlier in its history, this area of land was owned by Quaker settlers. As lore has it, during the Revolutionary War, George Washington slept (near his beleaguered Continental troops) under a great oak – the same oak that grows to the right of Quaker Ridge's 10th hole. The next morning Washington marched to Chatterton Hill in nearby White Plains, where he met in battle Sir William Howe, Commander-in-Chief of the British armies. Howe's forces emerged bloodied but victorious, although Washington was able to make his escape across the Hudson into New Jersey, and, as they say, the rest is history.
