The men's and women's golf programs at Columbia have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in recent years, winning more Ivy League championships than any other Ivy school over the past three seasons. The Lions have numerous training facility options at their disposal, including a state-of-the-art indoor center right on campus!

The Saint Andrew's Golf Club
10 Old Jackson Avenue
Hastings-on-the-Hudson, NY 10706

America's oldest golf club (1888) and founding member of the USGA, Saint Andrew's is one of golf's venerated historical venues. Only 20 minutes drive from New York City, the membership and their guests enjoy the game in a spectacular setting and play one of the area's best-conditioned and exciting layouts - a challenging par-71 golf course, re-designed by Jack Nicklaus in 1983.

Stewardship of the traditions and history of the ancient and honorable game is a priority at Saint Andrew's and, with golf's recent growth, has never been more important. Members are proud to wear the Red Jacket and offer a spirited toast to the memory of John Reid, the founder of American golf, in the room that bears his name.

The Clubhouse has recently restored along with several enhancements and renovations to the golf course.

Knickerbocker Country Club
188 Knickerbocker Road
Tenafly, NJ 07670

Knickerbocker Country Club is among a small group of local courses whose design is credited to legendary architect Donald J. Ross.  Ross's work can be found along the East Coast from Rhode Island to Florida, and more national championships have been played on Ross-designed courses than any other.

Strategy and deceptive simplicity are at the core of Ross's work.  Signature design features include putting surfaces that blend smoothly into the approaching fairway, thoughtful and efficient course routing that utilizes natural land contours, cross bunkers to capture the topped shot or create an illusion of distance, and greens that are especially difficult when played from above the hole.

Knickerbocker is a typical Ross design in another important way...it is a pleasure to play.  The better golfer will find it a challenge to shoot a low score, while the average player will enjoy the fair, straight-forward style of golf of which Ross is a master.
