Engineers Country Club was established in 1917 by members of the prestigious Engineers Club of Manhattan. The 210-acre course in Roslyn Harbor, New York was designed by English architect and golf professional Herbert Strong. The course was remodeled in 1921 by world-renowned golf course architect Devereux Emmet and later by Frank Duane.
The original architect followed the layouts of some of the most challenging holes in Scotland. Publications from the early days of the club described it as “a bag of tricks,” but the course was soon recognized as one of the finest in the country. The world-class course at ECC hosted the 1919 PGA Championship and the 1920 U.S. Amateur.
The course continues to be regarded as one of the most challenging and exciting courses in the area. Members enjoy playing on this challenging and historic golf course due to unique features such as sloping undulating greens and the boldest, largest putting surfaces on Long Island.
