Details of the Club: Westchester Country Club is a 45 hole private country club located in the heart of Westchester County, approximately 20 miles north of New York City. Westchester opened in 1922 and has two-18 hole championship golf courses designed by Walter Travis. Westchester also features an 8 story hotel and grounds, driving range, par three executive course, both grass and har-tru tennis courts, outdoor paddle tennis courts, and a 67 acre Beach Club on the Long Island Sound. In the fall of 2010, the West Course greens and approaches were re-grassed from our 80 year old poa annua to A1-A4 bentgrass. The South Course still features poa annua greens which will give student Interns a great opportunity to compare and contrast the differences between bentgrass and poa annua greens during summer stress. Westchester has hosted 45 PGA tour events in its long history. Westchester has actively been working on a new Master Plan with the Fazio Design Group. The first leg of work began during the fall of 2013 with Senior Architect Tom Marzolf. The West Course ranked third in 2016 in Golf Digest’s renovation of the year. The South Course completed an extensive renovation during the Fall of 2016 into the Spring of 2017. The South renovation consisted of new Better Billy Bunkers, entire new tee complexes , contouring and sodding green surrounds, and adjusting fairway lines. Student interns will have the opportunity to be involved with the Master Plan and construction work along with all the normal golf course maintenance and daily responsibilities.
