Fantasy Fairways

Westchester’s best 18 holes test your golf savvy, skills, and strategy

Anglebrook Golf Club #9

384 Yards, Par 4
Lincolndale

You might put your driver away on this hole, but don’t relax, because the ninth hole at Anglebrook simply cannot be taken for granted. It’s a prime example of designer Robert Trent Jones, Sr.’s talent for testing direction and distance control while rewarding two perfectly-struck shots, a theme on most of the holes on one of Westchester’s best but most-often-overlooked courses. Even the straightest of long hitters will need to dial back from the tee because anything hit over 250 yards will disappear into the 50-yard-wide abyss at the end of the fairway. It’s a good idea to bite off 240 yards if you can, though, because you’ll want to hit as lofted a club as possible into the severe green on the other side of the environmentally protected waste area. Distance control matters going into the green, too, since putting from above the hole is much like trying to guide a steel ball bearing down on the roof of the Chrysler Building into a coffee cup on the sidewalk below.
