Now in its eighth year, the Dye masterpiece is maturing in the mold of many of the great courses of Westchester County.

"The course is as playable as it has ever been and has evolved into the test of golf Mr. Dye always envisioned," says Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang. "Advanced players will relish the variety of shots required to play to their handicaps, while average golfers will find a fair test from the proper tees."

Peak season rates (through November 1) range from $120 on weekdays after 2 p.m. to $210 on weekend mornings before 2 p.m. Golfers can preview the challenge ahead with the new drone flyover of the entire layout.

Post-round, guests can relax in the refreshed interior of the recently expanded clubhouse, offering a full-service kitchen with new equipment, and mens and womens showers and small locker rooms.
