Anglebrook is a private
In keeping with his philosophy, Jones incorporated the layout into the existing terrain and natural contours of the land. The course is classically designed, offering traditional shot values and a minimum of blind shots. Four sets of tees, wide landing areas and a multitude of bailout options provide a wonderful level of playability. The greens are large, averaging nearly 7,000 square feet, and replete with numerous pockets and tiers, so accurate approach shots are essential to scoring.
Anglebrook opened in May of 1998 and the accolades began pouring in immediately. In their May,1999 issue, Golf Digest ranked the course 16th best in the state of New York. That’s a prestigious honor for any club—especially one just a year old and particularly for one in Westchester County, long known as home to some of the most vaunted private clubs in America.
Anglebrook measures from 4,700 to its championship tees at 7,001 to 4,100 with different ratings for each tee area. From there, the course carries a rating of 74.2/137 and a slope of 143, which makes it one of the toughest-ranked courses in the entire metropolitan area.
The clubhouse was designed by internationally renowned post-modern architect, Robert A.M. Stern. The 24,000-square-foot clubhouse strikes the perfect balance of elegance and function with a casually-massed, country-house feel which rests at the top of a small hill in perfect harmony with its surroundings. The main and private dining rooms offer spectacular panoramic views of the golf course. Adjoining the dining room is a bar and lounge area which features premium brands of liquors and cigars.
On the opposite side of the clubhouse are the pro shop, stocked with the latest lines of clothing and equipment, and locker rooms. Both the golf and clubhouse staffs provide service levels right out of another time and place.
AGC has hosted U.S. Amateur Qualifying, New York State Open Qualifying and a Met Section Pro-Am. In the fall of 2012, AGC will host its most prestigious event yet: the Met Section Mid-Amateur. Previous host clubs of this event have been Hudson National, GlenArbor, and Bayonne Golf Club.
Unlike many private clubs in the area, membership at Anglebrook is not on an invitation-only basis. Membership at Anglebrook will be limited to 300, thus allowing each member to make the most of what the club has to offer.
