White Beeches Golf and Country Club, named in honor of the beech trees that originally lined the course, was incorporated in 1918 and in 1920 the course was extensively redesigned by world renowned golf course architect Walter J. Travis.
His theories and philosophies concerning golf techniques and strategies found voice in his designs. The Walter J. Travis legend lives on in the many courses he designed that remain classics to this day, such as, Westchester Country Club’s West Course, Garden City Golf Club, Canoe Brook Country Club (North Course) and White Beeches Golf & Country Club.
White Beeches’ championship design displays the subtlety, playability and beauty that was, and remains, the Walter J. Travis trademark. White Beeches’ possesses Travis’s most famed characteristics, a premium placed on accuracy, consistency and the short game.
