The Northern Trust at Glen Oaks, which marks the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs for 125 golfers, is set to begin this week in Old Westbury on Long Island. When you think of New York, you probably imagine the Statue of Liberty and tall skyscrapers. But, it also features beautiful courses that will be in the spotlight over the next few months.
Courses In The Area
Not only is the Northern Trust being held in the New York, but the Presidents Cup is being held a few miles away next month at the Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City. Next year’s U.S. Open is being held at Shinnecock Hills on the East End of Long Island. Winged Foot in Mamaroneck has held the national championship five times, while Baltusrol in Springfield, NJ has held the national championship seven times. It’s also important to not forget Bethpage Black on Long Island, which became the first truly public course to host the U.S Open when it did so in 2002. The course was so well-received that the Open returned in 2009.
Keegan Bradley recently said, “The golf in the Met area, the New York area, I think is the best in the world. It’s always fun to come here.”
