About Pound Ridge Golf Club
Opened in 2008, Pound Ridge Golf Club is the only course in New York designed by the legendary Pete Dye. Located in Westchester County, it is just under an hour north of New York City and less than 15 minutes from Stamford and Greenwich, Connecticut. Pound Ridge is the premier high-end, public course in the metropolitan New York area.

Crafted by Dye, his son Perry and long-time Dye construction manager/lead shaper Michael Langkau, Pound Ridge 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 U.S. More than 14,000-linear-feet of rock wall frames the site's thick strands of hardwoods, wetlands and rolling terrain. Contoured fairways wind through forests, and fescue mounds lead to open meadows with picturesque green complexes.

Pound Ridge Golf Club plays to a par-72, has five sets of tees and measures 7,165 yards. It boasts a practice range, short game area and putting green. The property is home to many of the highest points in Westchester County, with a number of 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" -flanked on the right by a large rock outcropping that protrudes into the elongated, 9,000-square-foot green.
