The par-71 Westchester Country Club is 6,783 yards from the championship tees. Consisting of two outstanding Championship courses, the West Course is long and very hilly. The fairways are tight and tree lined, and the greens are fast and full of deceptive breaks. The South course is open all year, weather permitting. The South Course is shorter than the West Course, and also has a lake that comes into play on one hole. This is a straightforward course with medium-sized greens that are slightly sloped. The fairways are narrow and defined by a standard cut of rough. Both of these courses have been redesigned by such famous architects as William S. Flynn, Joseph Finger, and Rees Jones. This club is the host to the PGA Tour's Buick Classic, which is played on the West Course. This club has been listed by the USGA as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S. It was also recognized in "GOLF MAGAZINE's" 1995 list of "The First 100 Clubs in America."
Previous winners include, Sergio Garcia (2), Jonathan Kaye, Chris Smith, Dennis Paulson, J.P. Hayes, Ernie Els (2), Vijay Singh (2), Lee Janzen, David Frost and more.
