Anglebrook is a Private
Anglebrook is private, non-equity club in northern Westchester. Created in the mold of the storied Golden Era venues of golf-rich Westchester County. It is a pure golf club, in the sense that there are no swimming pools or tennis courts; just golf for golf’s sake. In the final design of his legendary architecture career, Robert Trent Jones Sr. created a modern masterpiece on an unspoiled 240-acre site, which features elevation changes of 200 feet.
Anglebrook opened in May of 1998, and the accolades began pouring in immediately. In their May, 1999 issue, Golf Digest ranked Anglebrook the 16th best course in the state of New York. That’s a prestigious honor for any club. Especially for one that is 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.
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 that 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.
AGC has proudly hosted U.S. Amateur qualifying (’07), U.S. Senior Amateur qualifying (’16), New York State Open Qualifying (’10), two Met Section Pro-Ams (’01 and ‘11) and two British Victory Cups (‘17 and ‘18). And, in the fall of 2013, AGC hosted its most prestigious event to date: the Met Section Mid-Amateur, during which Michael Karger fired a second-round 65 to match the competitive course record and earn him a come-from-behind victory.
