America’s Oldest Public Golf Course | Adventures In Golf Season 4

The Big Apple. The Empire State. The city that never sleeps. Erik finds himself in New York for this Adventures in Golf, presented by United, to play the oldest public golf course in the United States.

Golfers first teed it up at Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx back in 1895. The park charged nothing to play (unless you hired a caddie, which would set you back a whopping 15 cents). Because of this, and its proximity to New York’s 1-train station, the course was constantly packed.

Demand to play was so massive in the 1920s that the course had to do something. The answer, a reservation system. In other words, Van Cortlandt became the birthplace to tee times in America.

  15. Erik this course is right by my college and I’ve had the pleasure of playing it a handful of times. A beauty hiding in the city, was always hoping you’d make this video!

  17. That asst. pros swing made me flinch

  18. Ottawa Park toledo 1899. 16 of the 18 holes are still original design. Great course with great history

  19. That's crazy you played here! Which I could have caught you on the course it would have been amazing!

  20. Reminds me of Lickey Hills South B'ham UK, Quirky, somewhat flawed layout but with a genuine charm and character. And great views of the city of Birmingham in the distance.
