Frequently Asked Questions & Answers:
Q: How long is the outing?
A: Golfers usually arrive around 10am to check in, drop off their bags, enjoy brunch, and practice at the driving range and putting green. Then they head towards their hole for the shotgun start at 12pm. Usually golfers return to the clubhouse by 4:30pm, just in time for cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres at the 19th Hole. Golfers regale about the day over drinks while taking a look at the raffle items! Dinner begins at 5:30pm on the outdoor patio which enjoys beautiful views of the grounds. All reception areas for the brunch, cocktail hour and dinner will be outdoors.
Q: I don’t play much golf, or I don’t play at all. Is this a competitive event?
A: Not at all! All skill levels are invited to come out and enjoy the day! The outing is set up in Scramble format. This means each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot of your team. While there are a few contests, everyone enjoys being a part of the fun and sometimes you might hit that lucky shot!
Q: Transportation – How long does it take to drive there and how can I get there if I don’t have a car?
A: The club is less than 25 miles from NYC, and without traffic driving time is approximately 45 minutes. Uber or carpooling is also a great option. In addition, there is a MetroNorth stop right across the street from the entrance of Scarsdale Golf Club. Trains run from Grand Central frequently, and the current schedule shows a 9:17am train that arrives at the Hartsdale station at 9:50am (a short ride of 33 minutes)! Registered golfers will receive the train schedule information and additional details a few days before the event.
Q: Can I sign up as a single golfer?
A: Absolutely! We will do our best to pair you up in a group with commonalties i.e. children’s grades, couples, etc. Everyone is there to have fun and it is a fantastic way to meet other parents, network, and experience a day at Scarsdale Golf Club.
Q: Can I rent clubs?
A: Yes. Clubs are available for rent at $55/set. Please let us know when registering if you require this, and also specify mens’ or ladies’, right or left-handed. We will have the set ready for you at check-in.
