Pete Dye design in Westchester County ranks 6th in New York
(POUND RIDGE, N.Y.) – Pound Ridge Golf Club – legendary Pete Dye’s modern marvel in Westchester County – showcases spectacular autumn golf highlighted by pristine course conditions and a bucolic setting few public facilities can match.
Ranked No. 6 in Golfweek’s “Best Courses You Can Play in New York,” Pound Ridge is Dye’s only Empire State design. Less than an hour drive from New York City, a half-hour from White Plains and less than 15 minutes from both Stamford and Greenwich, (Conn.), the legendary architect’s acclaimed layout exemplifies his genius for creating exceptional shot values and a pure golf experience for players this fall.
“We’ve had a very successful year with scores of New York golfers teeing it up on our classic Pete Dye course and we look forward to continuing the momentum into the fall season,” says Darren Wang, managing partner of Pound Ridge Golf Club. “We invite one and all to visit us for a truly special golf experience in a setting bursting with the brilliant colors of autumn.”
Pound Ridge sits regally on 172 acres of pastoral Westchester County with dramatic rock outcroppings, streams and wooded, rolling hills converging to create an enjoyable and challenging par-72 course. Five sets of tees range from 5,151 to 7,165 yards providing challenges for golfers of all skill levels. Among its unforgettable holes is the dramatic par-5 13th which is home to “Pete’s Rock,” a giant boulder that rests in the middle of the fairway.

Pound Ridge Golf Club is the premier high-end, public course in the metropolitan New York area.
Pound Ridge Golf Club is a full bentgrass facility, hewn from 172 acres of magnificent cliffs, streams and wooded hills. Dramatic rock formations and boulders were left onsite, creating one of the most visually stunning settings for golf in the United States. More than 14,000-linear-feet of rock wall surrounds trees, wetlands and water hazards.

Pound Ridge Golf Club reflects the best in contemporary course design and is unique in a region filled with classic courses.
The par-72 Pound Ridge Golf Club measures 7,165 yards and houses five sets of tees. It boasts a practice range, short game area and putting green. The property features some of the highest points in Westchester County, with many tee boxes offering expansive vistas of the surrounding countryside. Notable holes include the par-5, 13th – home to “Pete’s Rock,” a giant boulder that rests in the middle of the fairway – and the par-3 15th – dubbed “Headstone” – which is flanked on the right by a large rock outcropping that protrudes into the elongated, 9,000-square-foot green.
In a region filled with classic layouts, Pound Ridge provides golfers with a refreshing and modern course design option.
