Westchester Country Club offers two championship Golf Courses and a nine-hole Executive Course. The West Course continues to be a regular location for professional golf events, including the Westchester Classic, Buick Classic and most recently, The Barclays (the first of four stops on the FedEx Tour). Westchester Country Club also hosted the Senior Players Championship in 2011.
