Since sculpting its first fairway in 1928, The Brookwoods Country Club has earned hosting rights to such prestigious events as a U.S. Women’s Open qualifying tournament and multiple New York State Amateur Championships, each attracted by the pristine upkeep and spectacular views sculpted into the Geoffrey Cornish–designed course. Golfers must navigate the dense forestation lining the fairways and the water in play on all holes except the par 3 14th hole, placing a premium on deft club selection and the use of hydrophobic golf balls.
Afterward, players can head to the 19th Hole and refuel with soups and sandwiches on the outdoor patio that overlooks the course. Indoors, a fireplace warms patrons as they sip on post-round beers and regale each other with tales of the time they putted the entire course.
