Quaker Ridge Golf Club
About Quaker Ridge Golf Club

The "Metropolitan Golf Links" was formed in 1915 with the purchase of 125 acres of Quaker Ridge property, on which John Duncan Dunn designed and built a nine-hole golf course. In 1916, the "Golf Links" was beset by financial problems, and a small group of businessmen formed "Quaker Ridge Golf Club" and purchased the existing property. Tillinghast was commissioned to redesign 7 holes and build 11 new ones. The new course opened in 1918.

The par-70, 6,772-yard A. W. Tillinghast design – often called "Tillie's Treasure" – is frequently mentioned when accomplished golfers are asked to name the best course in the Metropolitan New York area. In March 1989, for example, Quaker Ridge was voted the number one course in the Met Area by The Met Golfer magazine. In its 2001 rankings, Golf Digest rated Quaker Ridge 20th in the United States. Quaker Ridge has hosted 3 Met Opens, 3 Met Amateurs, and 3 Met PGA Championships.
