Located in the historic Village of Roslyn Harbor since 1917, Engineers boasts a championship 18-hole golf course (site of the 1919 PGA Championships and 1920 USGA Amateur Championships) as well as newly renovated tennis courts and Olympic-size swimming pool with dual slides, state-of-the-art exercise facilities, luxurious men's and ladies' locker rooms, modern clubhouse and exquisite dining areas serving incomparable cuisine.
Engineers is a tricky course with very treacherous and difficult greens. It is purely a "position" course and, while from the back tees can play long on a few holes, distance is not a priority off of the tee.
Despite its medium length, this is a very strong course and cannot be overpowered--as attested to by the fact that the US Amateur and the PGA Championship were held here.
Many of the greens are large, severely sloped, and undulating--so a premium on iron approach play or green-side recovery shots is absolutely a necessity. Practice of the lob wedge and heavy green-side rough chip and pitch won't hurt a bit before you come here. Greens speeds are almost always very fast. On the greens you must stay below the pins whenever possible, but especially on the 2nd, 6th, 8th, 16th, and 18th holes.
