Our Course

Recently renovated by world-renowned architect Rees Jones, The Summit Club is the site of golf history stretching back three generations. Originally designed by Albert Zikouras, The Summit Club golf course has been the integral part of a private club for almost 60 years.  Now, with the able assistance of world-renowned Rees Jones, Inc., the golf course has received a thorough redesign which has elevated the golf experience to a whole new level.  The Rees Jones included the following components: renovation of all bunkers, the creation of 3 new holes, reshaping of several fairways, many new tee boxes, renovation and conversion of all greens to bent grass, the take down of over 400 trees, a new range with targets and a short game area, irrigation upgrades and much, much more.  Future improvements will include a golf performance center with indoor/outdoor hitting bays on the range and comfort stations with drinks and snacks on the front and back nines.

The end result is a visually stunning par 71, 6,700 yard golf course with dramatic elevation changes and long distance views of the Westchester countryside.  The redesign of The Summit Club achieves the goal of being challenging for the better players and a fair test for the average golfer.  Nature and golf truly co-exist among 156 acres of picturesque woodlands conveniently located in the heart of Armonk, NY.

The club is being managed by an experienced team that has spent a combined century-plus in the private club industry. The team’s background with first-class country clubs is a key to The Summit Club’s mission to make the experience of every member and guest memorable from “Bag Drop to 19th Hole.”

In summary, The Summit Club golf experience is unlike any other in Westchester County. A new golf cart fleet features the latest GPS technology, USB ports, onboard coolers and Bluetooth speakers.  Our programming is designed to make golf fun and exciting for the whole family within a relaxed resort-like atmosphere, where the member experience is our number one priority.

Hole By Hole

A strong, straight away opening par 4. Favor the left side off the tee to avoid the down slope on the right if you miss the fairway.

This short par 4 doglegs slightly to the right, with a dramatic elevation change off the tee. A good shot will leave a short iron or wedge to the green. This is a birdie opportunity early in the round.

The Summit Club’s first par five is a medium length three-shot hole with a lake in play along much of the fairway’s right side. With a good tee ball, a strategically placed second shot can you set up for a chance to pitch close and have a birdie putt.

A challenging par 4 with a premium on an accurate first shot. Favor the right center of the fairway, and plan for a mid to long iron into the green.

Two good shots are needed here to get safely to the elevated green on this dog leg right par four. Bang a drive over the left side of the hill and put yourself in a position to attack the well-guarded putting surface.

Summit’s first part three is a good test of your ball striking ability as you reach the far corner of the club’s property. The green is perched high between the bunkers and depending on the tees you’re playing from and the wind, it may require a long iron or hybrid.

Players head back up the hill on this dogleg left par four. Keep it left off the tee box as the fairway slopes to the right. A respite from the usually well-bunkered greens, this putting surface sits in a grass bowl with a stone wall behind.

A relatively long par three with an elevated green, the water on this hole should not come into play other than with a truly mis-hit tee shot. Be happy with a par on this tough uphill hole.

As you return to the area of the future clubhouse on the par five 9th, you are given an opportunity to reach the halfway point of your round with a good score.  You can take advantage of the relatively generous landing area and the shorter length of this picturesque three-shot hole.

The back nine at SCC begins with a short, dogleg left par 4 that prioritizes accuracy over distance. You may want to leave the driver in your bag here, making sure you find the fairway from the elevated tees on this relatively short hole. The approach shot is uphill to a multi-tiered green.

The first of three one-shot holes on the back side, this medium length par 3 is slightly uphill with a well-protected green.

Play to either level of the two-tiered fairway on this par 4. A good drive will leave you a short iron approach, and one of the better birdie chances on the inward nine.

A beautiful dogleg left par four, the thirteenth features large trees on either side of the uphill fairway.  If you’ve successfully avoided the trees off the tee, then all that’s left is to negotiate the bunkers guarding the front of the green.

Destined to be one of the signature holes of the new Rees Jones design at Summit Club, this hole was formerly a par four, but now extends over the creek as a dramatic par five. For longer hitters, the risk/reward of trying to reach the green in two contrasts the potential eagle putt with the use of a ball retriever.

A relatively short par three, this hole features a green complex with slopes and bunkering that can make for tricky second shots if you or your playing partners miss the putting surface from the tee.

A short par four begins the home stretch of your round, with a generous fairway and good-sized green. While it has the makings of a birdie hole, beware the water to the right that can capture the somewhat errant approach.

A wonderful downhill view of this final par three awaits you on the tee here. With short yardage and a fairly large green, this is a great time to “stick” one in close as you make the final turn for home.

The finishing hole is a par five that moves gently uphill towards the clubhouse area.  Your fellow members may be watching from above, so take full advantage of this last, inviting opportunity to score.
