Winged Foot, the mere mention of the name immediately conjures up an image of authority, of a certain respect shared by golfers the world over. For since its inception, this fabulous club in Mamaroneck, New York, has been at the center of golf's proudest traditions - in purity of design, individual accomplishment, quality of membership,
and milestones of the sport itself.
Playing Winged Foot for the first time evokes a sensation similar to the first time you go to a ballgame and walk up the runway to see the immaculate green grass of the field. Immediately, the history of the ground you're standing on and the game itself comes rushing to you. The grass is greener, more manicured, than you ever imagined and the overall grandeur of the place strikes at you.
To say that Winged Foot is great would be understating. It has a sense of nobility, a majesty, if you will. It has two of the world's greatest golf courses and a clubhouse to match, and into whose past is woven some of the greatest moments in golf.
