Quaker Ridge Golf Club

I have had trouble writing this post as Quaker Ridge is near and dear to me.  Before Quaker Ridge I regularly played at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx.  Six hour+ rounds were the norm and teeing off on a par four with a three iron not uncommon.   My first round in my life with a caddy was at Quaker Ridge.  Joining Quaker opened me up to the art of golf course design and the challenge of golf course maintance.  Our greenskeeper Tom literally has a degree in Organic Chemstry!  For over a decade now I have had the privilege to play this classic course.  Over the past few years I have taken some photos of the course and will continue to add to this over the years that come.

A look at 11, my favorite hole over a small creek.

The green on 15.

A look down 18 from the club house.

Another day a view from 18.

Another view of 15.

From the tee on 14, the only par 5 on the back.

17th hole.

Looking down 14 from behind the green

9th hole, a very tricky par 3.

  2. Saw your post through looking through instagram. I am fortunate enough to be invited by a staff member to play here tomorrow. Driving down from Canada. I am really excited to play. This is my first top 100.
