For our non-golfing (and golfing) preservationists, a tour around Saint Andrew's Clubhouse (including artifacts and club history) begins at 6 pm.

History of Saint Andrew's

In February 1888, a Scottish sportsman named John Reid and several of his friends took an armful of clubs, some gutta percha balls and hearts full of enthusiasm to a pasture in Yonkers for a friendly round of “Gowf”. There, in front of a gallery of bemused cows, they knocked the balls around an improvised three-hole course.  Before long, these golfing pioneers had commandeered their own "clubhouse"— an old apple tree from whose gnarled branches they hung their coats and obligatory flasks of fine scotch whiskey.  This was the birth of what was to become the oldest continuously operating golf club in the United States: The Saint Andrew’s Golf Club. Today’s members of Saint Andrew’s are a contemporary part of that “Apple Tree Gang,” one of the proudest, most unique fellowships in American golf.

The history of Saint Andrew’s is replete with “firsts” in American golf. Saint Andrew’s hosted the first U.S. Amateur and “Open” Championships. It was a founding member (along with The Country Club, the Chicago Golf Club, the Newport Country Club and Shinnecock Hills Golf Club) of the United States Golf Association. 


A visit to Saint Andrew’s is like a walk through golf history. The turn of the century clubhouse is a veritable museum of golf memorabilia. You can have cocktails in the warm ambiance of the John Reid Room, surrounded by a priceless collection of early golf clubs and balls – some of which were actually used at Saint Andrew’s by John Reid, “the father of American golf.” There is even a branch from the original apple tree that served as the club’s first “clubhouse” in Yonkers. The Landau Library contains such historic documents as copies of the handwritten minutes of the meetings that led to the formation of the club in 1888 and to the organization of the United States Golf Association in 1895.
