  • Course History
    • Metropolis Country Club was founded in 1922 when members of the Metropolitan Social Club of New York City acquired the original course from Century Country Club. The course, originating in 1904, was designed originally by Herbert Strong, and subsequently A.W. Tillinghast, who designed several other holes.  The course was enhanced by Joe Finger and then updated and renovated in 1994 by Ken Dye.  In 2013 the club hired architect Ron Forse to embark on a total restoration/renovation project.  Under Ron's guidance, along with course superintendent David McCaffrey, the project was completed in the spring of 2015.  The result of which has elevated the golfing experience at Metropolis to the finest in the Metropolitan area.

      From the championship tees it is a challenging 6,827 yard Par 70 golf course featuring many doglegs, uneven lies, and undulating greens, all of which test every aspect of the best player’s shot-making ability. Metropolis is consistently ranked as one of the top courses in the Metropolitan Area, and our signature sixth hole, has been ranked by many golf publications as one of the 18 best holes in the Metropolitan Area and among the 500 best holes in the world. Over the years Metropolis' reputation as a championship course and our strong support of local Golf Associations has allowed the club to host every major Metropolitan Area Professional and Amateur Championship.
  • Course Improvements

    • In 2013 the club hired golf course architect Ron Forse to oversee a total restoration/renovation project.  The project was divided into two phases, with the first phase being completed in the Spring of 2014, and phase two was completed in the Spring of 2015.  All green surrounds and bunkers were replaced along with many other features which had been lost over the years.

      In the Spring of 2016,  we debuted our new practice tee to the membership.  The newly designed and expanded tee will allow members and guests alike to utilize the grass hitting surface throughout the entire season.

HOLE ONE

Par 5

540 Yards

Handicap 11




The opening hole is a downhill par five which has a fairway that slopes sharply from left to right. Out of bounds runs the entire length of the hole on the right side. A well placed tee shot should hug the left side of the fairway. Most player’s second shot will be a lay up, while longer hitters may try to reach the well bunkered green in two.
