    Engineers Country Club Golf Course Review




    The Engineers Country Club was founded almost a century ago in 1917 by a group of engineers in Manhattan (hence the name) and it boasts a championship-grade 18 hole design and various other accommodations, such as a swimming pool, tennis courts and top notch exercise facilities. Located in the village of Roslyn Harbor, ten miles east of New York City, the Engineers Country Club is a private club available for members and their guests only and it was designed by architects Herbert Strong and Devereux Emmet. The golf course was specially designed for hosting golf championships and its cleverly routed across a beautiful piece of real estate, the former Willet Manor. One of the main selling points sort to speak of the golf course is the excellent quality of its greens, which is fabled since the 1920s, as a former journalist described it: the main nerve test when playing on the Engineers Country Club will be on the greens, as it makes strong men weep as they finish a round, or something across these lines. Truth be told, the situation hasnt changed much since 1920, i.e. if youre able to master the putting surfaces of the Engineers Country Clubs golf course, youll end up with a good score.

    The golf course features 6767 yards from its longest tees and it was completely renovated in 1998, including an update for its facilities. To describe it in a few words, Id say that the golf course was designed for pro golfers, i.e. for match play, as you can blow a round basically on any one hole. As per metrics, the golf course at the Engineers Country Club features a slope rating of 131, a course rating of 72,7 for a 71 par and it hosted the 1919 PGA Championship and the 1920 US Amateur. Its also worth noticing the fact that Frank Menckes Encyclopedia of Sports listed the Engineers Country Clubs golf course as one of the best in the United States, and that speaks volumes in this writers opinion.
