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

Fenway Golf Club #5
458 Yards, Par 4
It takes two mighty blows to reach Fenway’s number-one handicap hole, and even then there’s no assurance of a two-putt par. Every inch of the slight dogleg left plays uphill, so even a powerful poke off the tee will leave just about every player with a hybrid or even fairway-wood approach to the green sited with the classic clubhouse in the background. Tillighast gave the determined player hope, though, by providing an invitingly wide throat between the flanking bunkers so that it is possible to run the ball onto the green. Once you’re on the green, though, hope may be all that’s left unless you’re less than three feet from the cup and directly below the hole. The sharply canted green is one of the most treacherous in Westchester — if not the free world.
