Looking for fun and excitement away from the hustle and bustle of New York City without leaving New York City? Well look no further than the Van Cortlandt Golf Course, a favorite destination of Hibernia Bar. The Van Cortlandt Golf Course is perfectly situated just outside of Manhattan in the North Bronx. As the oldest public golf course in the USA, the Van Cortland Golf Course is the most easily accessible NYC golf course to mass transportation. Just hop on the 1 train and once you are off the train you are just a short walk to the golf course. Once you visit the Van Cortlandt Golf Course, it will be easy to see why so many greats, including Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Joe Lewis and the Three Stooges, have all played there over the years.
Once you take the short walk from the 1 train to the golf course or get out of your Uber, you will immediately see the lush green beautifully landscaped course. This beauty that is the Van Cortlandt Golf Course features seven new greens, new tee boxes, additional cart paths, improved bunkers, and dramatically improved drainage. You get to escape NYC, play some golf at one of the best golf courses on the East coast, all while never having to leave New York City.
Think of this golf course as the Hamptons meets the Bronx meets golf. Even though there is no beach at this golf course, this course offers the same relaxing, thank goodness I’m out of the New York City craziness kind of vibe. The friendly vibe, great scenery, and fantastic golf, is the reason why Hibernia Bar has been making a trip to the Van Cortlandt Golf Course an annual event. Of all the golf courses and things to do near and in New York City, every year Hibernia Bar chooses this pristine golf course.
Check out the Van Cortlandt Golf Course and once you step on the green, it will be hard to believe that you are playing golf in the Bronx. The beautiful walkways, crystal-like lake, newly renovated chic clubhouse, and fun course will make the short trip out to Van Cortlandt well worth it on a beautiful spring day. Even for the average New Yorker who doesn’t play golf, a trip to Van Cortlandt is a great relaxing daycation. They even have a nice deck in the back overlooking the lake to sit and relax with a few beers and great food. If you love playing gold, the challenging course will keep you busy the whole day.
If you are a New Yorker, you have probably escaped to Central Park 1,000 plus times and still have had to deal with the abundant amount of tourists asking you for directions interrupting your relaxing day at the park. At Van Cortlandt you get to have the relaxation minus the interference from lost tourists or anxiety from sitting in overcrowded park space.
