Westchester Country Club in Rye, New York is a classic golf course that is a historical landmark and the home of The Barclays on the PGA TOUR for many years, as well as the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship this year. The golf course is over 100 years old with the original hotel and clubhouse still intact.  This is a favorite golf course of almost all the players because of the old style character and the demanding natural terrain that is present on every hole. From tee to green Westchester does not let up in difficulty on any shot.  Once on the green, the slope is equal to any major championship course, and on several of the holes the ball cannot be controlled going downhill.  Combine this treachery with thick rough and this course can be a real bear.  The wind is usually a factor and adds another variable to make Westchester even more difficult. The scores are usually two to four under par a day to have a chance to win and the list of winners at Weschester is an impressive one.
