Sleepy Hollow Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1911

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!
