Pound Ridge Golf Club No. 6 in Golfweek’s ‘Best Courses You Can Play’ in New York

(POUND RIDGE, N.Y.) – Pound Ridge Golf Club – legendary Pete Dye’s modern marvel in Westchester County celebrating its 10th anniversary –  is ranked No. 6 in New York in Golfweek’s just-released “Best Courses You Can Play.”

This is Pound Ridge’s ninth-straight year in the top 10 in one of the most golf-rich states. The layout is Dye’s only Empire State creation and exemplifies his deep understanding of shot values and resistance to scoring.

Golfweek’s rating system uniquely factors the quality of a course’s par 3s, 4s and 5s, providing a holistic view of layout quality,” says Ken Wang, owner of Pound Ridge. “Our guests savor the opportunity to play a classic Dye design while also enjoying a premier experience from the moment they arrive.”

Golfweek raters use 10 criteria to evaluate a course, including overall land plan, variety and memorability of golf holes, conditioning and ecology, and the "walk in the park test," which rates the sense of the course as worthy of spending four hours on it. The number of courses rated per state is based on course supply, population and level of play. The Golfweek rankings include daily-fee and resort courses.

Pound Ridge sits regally on 172 acres of bucolic Westchester County–dramatic rock outcroppings, streams and wooded, rolling hills converge to create an enjoyable and challenging par-72 course. Five sets of tees range from 5,151 to 7,165 yards providing challenges for golfers of all skill levels. Among its unforgettable holes is the dramatic par-5 13th which is home to “Pete’s Rock,” a giant boulder that rests in the middle of the fairway.
