Item Description

Well-known for its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere, Ardsley Country Club is unique among private clubs in the metropolitan area. The historic clubhouse is a miniature of the great Benedictine Abbey in Solesmes, France.  

Upon winding up North Mountain Drive to the Club, members are charmed by the interior courtyard and arched ceiling entryway, smitten by the spectacular view of the Hudson River from the terrace, and always enticed to return by the exquisite cuisine.

Ardsley’s golf course has a long and distinguished history. Originally designed by Willie Dunn in 1896, at $1 million, it was the most expensive course ever built. In 1898, Ardsley hosted the third USGA Women’s Open Amateur Championship. Since then, the course gradually moved up the hill away from the Hudson River. In 1917 Donald Ross made changes, followed by Alister Mackenzie in 1928 and Robert Trent Jones in 1965. The course was totally renovated in 2005 by Ken Dye. All are distinguished golf course architects. The latest renovation greatly enhanced the beauty – and the difficulty – of the course. Three ponds were added, while the existing ponds were moved next to greens, bringing them into play to a much greater degree. Hilly lies and yawning bunkers challenge the skills of golfers at all levels. Ardsley’s Golf Course Superintendent, Matt Du Tremble, receives constant accolades from members and guests for the superb quality of the course.
