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.
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.
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.
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 is the pro shop, stocked with the latest lines of clothing, equipment, and locker rooms. Both the golf and clubhouse staff 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.
