Charles Schwab Challenge

Colonial Country Club



Westchester Country Club (West)

Rye, NY Private

Overview

Well-known as a venue that hosted a PGA Tour event for decades, Westchester C.C. (West) was originally designed by Walter Travis, who was known for tiny greens and ferocious bunkering. The roster of architects who have tweaked Travis’ design include Perry Maxwell in 1939, Rees Jones in 1982, Ken Dye (no relation to Pete Dye) in 2000 and, most recently, Tom Fazio, who prepared a long-range master plan that, over a three-year period, was implemented by Fazio’s longtime associate, and restoration specialist, Tom Marzolf, a former president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. It’s a shame this polished Westchester gem in no longer visited by the tour.
