Sleepy Hollow Country Club: located an hour's drive from Manhattan, and just a few hundred yards from the east bank of the Hudson River, Sleepy Hollow is home to a revered Charles Blair Macdonald layout. Complementing the quality of the course is the Club's stunning Woodlea Clubhouse. This three-storey palatial mansion began as one of several opulent stately homes built for the Vanderbilt family at the turn of the 20th century.
This private club, exclusively for the use of its members and their invited guests, was founded by a board of directors that included John Jacob Astor IV, Cornelius Vanderbilt III, Edward Julius Berwind, and others. The undulating and relatively open parkland golf course that the father of American golf course architecture designed for them is rather dazzling too!
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Sleepy Hollow Country Club has staged many top level events over the years. For several years between 1986 and 1993 the club's Upper course hosted the Senior PGA Tour's "Commemorative" tournament, and in 2002 staged the US Women's Amateur Championship (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Sleepy Hollow CC).

The San Roque Club: "... how best to revitalise a course that had previously been fit to play regular host to the European Tour’s qualifying school finals..." by Toby Ingleton.
