The daily-fee course’s clubhouse now offers permanent bathrooms, a full-service kitchen with new equipment, men’s and women’s showers and small locker rooms, and more.
Pound Ridge (N.Y.) Golf Club, a daily-fee course, has completed its clubhouse expansion, providing golfers at the only Pete Dye design in New York with additional conveniences and amenities.
“The new-look clubhouse is part of the continual evolution of Pound Ridge Golf Club,” said owner Ken Wang. “Our players now have more options including showering or refreshing here at the course, and grabbing a bite to eat before, during, or after a round.”
The main building was expanded and now offers permanent bathrooms, a full-service kitchen with new equipment, and men’s and women’s showers and small locker rooms. The breezeway between the building and temporary structure has been enclosed for additional comfort and privacy.
Floor, ceiling and window frame moulding, chair rails and other fixtures, features and equipment were added to create both elegance and permanence. Guests have the choice of relaxing in the refreshed interior or outdoors on one of Pound Ridge’s two alfresco seating and gathering areas.
Opened in 2008, Pound Ridge plays to a par-72 and houses five sets of tees and measures 7,165 yards. It offers a practice range, short game area and putting green. The property features some 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 hole, home to “Pete’s Rock,” a giant boulder that rests in the middle of the fairway, and the par-3 15th hole, dubbed “Headstone,” which is flanked on the right by a large rock outcropping that protrudes into the elongated, 9,000-sq. ft. green.
