Number 2 – 625 and number 12- 605. Originally developed by a group of wealthy men who hoped to have the city develop it into a private course, this course has transformed over the years into quite a hilly and challenging course.

While if office, Mayor Giuliani initiated a four million dollar improvement program that included the rebuilding of 20 new tee boxes, 13 bunkers, two lakes and significant redesign if the fairways and rough. The pro shop and dining area has also been renovated.”
