About Winged Foot Golf Club
Winged Foot Golf Club is a private golf club set in Mamaroneck, NY and is located just 20 miles north of NYC. The club was founded in 1921 and opened for play in 1923. A.W.

Winged Foot Golf Club has hosted numerous major championships on both courses, most recently on the West Course with its 6th U.S. Open in September 2020. Since their opening, both the West and East courses have been regularly ranked in the Golf Digest top 100 in the United States, with the West Course consistently ranking in the top 12.
