Public Course Golfing In Westchester, Without Waiting For Tee Time

Getting a weekend tee time at one of Westchester’s six public courses can be tricky, but it’s possible with a little perseverance.

Getting a weekend tee time at one of Westchester’s six public courses can be tricky, but it’s possible with a little perseverance. 

Plan Ahead

Last December, you booked a recurring tee time through the county’s E-Z Reserve system, right? No? Then put it on your calendar for this December, and you’ll thank yourself in 2015. The E-Z Reserve system lets players reserve a regular weekend tee time for a 30-week period, between March and October, on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit golf.westchestergov.com for more information. 

Get a Westchester County Park Pass

If you get a park pass, you can spare yourself the indignity of lining up outside the pro shop trying to score one of the remaining tee times that isn’t already booked by E-Z Reserve. You can register online and then book a tee time in the comfort of your own home through the website (egolf.westchestergov.com ) or phone (914-995-4653). These reservation lines are open 24 hours, and tee times are released at 7 pm a week in advance.

Go Solo

If you didn’t reserve in advance and don’t have a Westchester County park pass, you’re stuck reserving in person, lining up between 8 am and opening, a week in advance. But perhaps it’s best to leave the entourage at home—it’s easier to pick up a tee time as a single than as a foursome. 

Try a Daily-Fee Course

If you think trying to get a good tee time at a county course is a lost cause, consider one of the other daily-fee courses in Westchester. You might have better luck at the Pound Ridge Golf Club (www.poundridgegolf.com), Doral Arrowwood Golf Club in Rye Brook (www.doralarrowwood.com), or Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester (www.lakeislecountryclub.com), which is semi-private for Eastchester residents but takes some outside players as long as they’re accompanied by a member.
