Brentwood Country Club

Pennsylvania Avenue, Brentwood
Head Pro: Doug Jansen
6,173 yards, Par 72

When most golf-knowledgeable people hear the name of course designer Devereux Emmet, their thoughts immediately go to the many private courses and tournament courses he developed in the early 1900s: Garden City CC, Cherry Valley CC, Rockaway Hunting Club, Seawane Club, Huntington Crescent Club, Leatherstocking GC, and frequent U.S. Open host Congressional CC outside Washington D.C. But there is another gem of his that’s available for play by the public golfer, and it’s centrally located for anyone living on Long Island: Brentwood Country Club.
With tree-lined fairways and smallish greens, the course at Brentwood CC is both picturesque and challenging—its 6,173-yard length should not be taken by players as a hint that the course won’t play tough. As Emmet intended, course management is paramount here. In other words, players hoping to make par or better on any hole will have to think about the placement of every shot before stepping up to the tee.
Once the round is over, the lounge and restaurant facilities treat players to a relaxing yet classy atmosphere. The facility also does many weddings and special events during the year, so the food at Brentwood CC is up to par with the finest restaurants on Long Island. And although there is not a driving range on premises, Head Pro Doug Jansen recently created a high-tech swing lab where players can come to have their game evaluated by him and his well-trained staff, using the latest technology. Their clubfitting skills are sure to help any player who is looking for a set of clubs that’s just right for their swing path and swing speed.
As one of the more affordable 18-hole rounds on Long Island, Brentwood CC is a special treat for players who appreciate the history of the game and a traditional golf experience.
