Wykagyl Country Club

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

Est. 1898

Wykagyl Country Club: located just north of New York City, this renowned and much-admired private club previously enjoyed a long association with the PGA Tour and more latterly with the LPGA Tour. Exuding a predominantly tree-lined feel, with open spaces, rocky outcroppings and plenty of swirling undulation also in the mix, Wykagyl is certain to give your all-round game a thorough examination.

Originally known as the Pelham CC, it was felt that a new name was needed when the club was forced to move from its first home in Pelham Manor to New Rochelle. Some believe the new name "Wykagyl" was supplied by a founding member, Mr William K. Gillett. He merely took some of the letters of his own name, substituted Y's for I's, and added an A for euphony. Others believe the name is associated with local Indian tribes and villages. Wykagyl is a private club, exclusively for the use of members and their invited guests.
