POUND RIDGE GOLF CLUB
WESTCHESTER'S BEST NEW PUBLIC COURSE IS THE
POUND RIDGE GOLF CLUB
By Ken Liebeskind
New York's Westchester County is renowned for its legendary private golf courses, including Winged Foot and Quaker Ridge. Now attention is being directed to a new public course, the Pound Ridge Golf Club, a Pete Dye design on a 172 acre tract set amidst magnificent cliffs, streams and wooded hills in northern Westchester, 40 miles from New York City.
Dramatic rock formation and boulders at the Pound Ridge Golf Club create one of the most sensational settings for golf in the U.S., with more than 14,000 linear feet of rock wall surrounding the trees, wetlands and water hazards.
The par 72 Pound Ridge Golf Club course measures 7,171 yards from the back tees, with four other tee boxes, making the course accessible to all levels of play.

Each hole is named like Augusta National, with number 2, Eternal, a 451 yard long uphill par 4 making things tough at the start. Number 4 is Barricade, a short 145 yard par 3 with a series of traps in front of the green and water to the right. Temptation, a short 311 yard par 4 follows, with long drivers "tempted" to drive the green. But the safe play is to the generous portion of the fairway in front of the green where you can avoid ten different traps that dot the hole. The 18th is Resolution, a long uphill 454 yard par 4 with water and bunkers to the left, that creates a "Dye-abolical" finish to this great course.
We hope you have a long distance driver to play the Pound Ridge Golf Club. A great choice is the Controller 460cc driver from www.scientificgolfclubs.com, which features a max size club head coated with an armor-piercing metal once used on military missiles that can add 20 to 40 yards to your drives. The club head is twice as hard as steel and 70 percent harder than titanium, making it the hardest club head available, which gives you the opportunity to hit the longest drives. The Controller 460cc driver also features a graphite shaft, so it's easy to swing.
