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.
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Wykagyl Country Club has staged many top level events over the years. From 1990 until 2007 it was a regular stop on the LPGA Tour, hosting the Japan Airlines and then Sybase Big Apple Classic. Notable winners here included Betsy King, Juli Inkster, Beth Daniel, Michele Redman, Annika Sorenstam, Sherri Steinhauer, Rosie Jones, Gloria Park, Paula Creamer and Lorena Ochoa.
