Cedarbrook Country Club incorporates the rustic beauty of the New York countryside with a 6,658-yard golf course lined with mature trees and vibrant landscape features. Each fairway bottlenecks through groves of timbers, requiring golfers to exhibit accuracy off the tee and keep claustrophobic golf carts from fleeing to the open driving range. Slow-starting swings can work their kinks out early in the round, as an errant shot on the first hole—a 490-yard par 5 that gently doglegs left—won't necessarily derail a chance at saving par or sneaking a quick snooze in the long grass.
Before rounds, golfers can loosen up at the multifaceted practice facility, where practice balls soar over the driving range and roll over a practice green. Class A PGA instructor Tom Herzog runs the pro shop and teaches private and group lessons.
Racket-wielding guests can slide and shuffle across the soft, Har-Tru surface of the club's 13 tennis courts or hit flush forehands off the walls of two racquetball courts. The private establishment also encompasses a 300-seat ballroom, cocktail lounge, and a swimming pool for those who prefer chlorine-rich libations.

A Class-A PGA professional with more than 25 years of experience, Rick Nielsen applies his time-earned expertise to help golfers shave strokes during lessons at Randalls Island Golf Center, where he's been the head pro since 1998. Rick employs the latest technologies to aid in instruction, including The Golfing Machine system⎯which takes a geometric approach to swing mechanics⎯as well as digital-video analysis and FlightScope 3-D doppler radar launch monitor. These sensitive instruments measure each shot on a number of parameters, from club-head speed and launch angle to total distance and nougat ratio of the ball’s core. Meanwhile, Rick observes and isolates specific areas in need of improvement so that players can develop muscle memory and consistently repeat a successful swing motion. Ultimately, with Rick's pointers, players leave lessons equipped with the tools to reach their full potential on the course without temptation to modify their 9-iron into a bedazzled baton.
