Inwood Country Club

Inwoond CC’s golf course, located adjacent to Jamaica Bay and JFK Airport, is one of the oldest on Long Island. Originally established as a nine-hole course in 1901, it was expanded to 18 five years later and soon played host to two major professional tournaments.

Inwood’s layout is quite unique. The front side plays to a par of 37 and 34 on the back nine. Three consecutive par-5s are followed by back-to-back par-3s on the front, while seven par-4s, including the last four, highlight the back.

There’s also a bit of golf history here. Inwood was the site of the 1921 PGA Championship, won by Walter Hagen, as well as the 1923 U.S. Open, won by Bobby Jones in a playoff round over Bobby Cruickshank. On the decisive hole of the playoff, the 425-yard 18th, Jones hit a magnificent approach shot from 200 yards out that landed six feet from the cup and led to his first of 18 major wins. A monument stands where Jones hit one of the most memorable shots in the history of competitive golf.
