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.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
