1) Westchester Country Club (Rye)

A WCC member, Anastos favors the South Course because of its “more forgiving terrain.” And although the course offers “lots of challenging holes,” he says, “it still has a relaxed atmosphere—a nice break from the news of the day.”

2) Quaker Ridge Golf Club (Scarsdale)

Lots of tree-lined holes, elevation changes, and some water challenges make playing Quaker Ridge, Anastos says, fun. “Knowing that George Washington once slept under a tree on the tenth hole makes it even more special.”

3) Pebble Beach Golf Links (Pebble Beach, CA)

“Pebble Beach has a legacy status—and certainly lives up to anyone’s expectations. It has beautiful scenery and remarkable ocean views, and the challenges of the course keep my attention at all times.”

4) The Links at Spanish Bay (Pebble Beach, CA)

“A knockout—unique in style and design with a firm turf.”

5) Spyglass Hill Golf Course (Pebble Beach, CA)

Anastos calls this a must-play course. He recalls one particularly memorable moment “teeing off alongside some graceful-looking deer and birds.”
