An apt point of comparison has been made by many aficionados — in 1989 Golf Digest ranked Quaker Ridge 14th best in the country. That layout included the substantial Robert Trent Jones modifications made in the mid-1960s. The anomaly, with its ranking today, in the opinion of most who have played both layouts, is that the renovated course of today is a superior one — in design, aesthetics, resistance to scoring and playability.

Even the conditioning of the course, long a staple, is improved today. In addition, the greens, now enlarged to their original dimensions, have more pin positions. But the green speed, smoothness and playability, oft times considered just a bit inferior to those at neighboring Winged Foot — whose greens have typically been considered to be among the very best in the nation along with Pine Valley, Augusta National and Oakmont — have been vastly improved in the move to 100 percent poa annua. Quaker Ridge’s greens now rank favorably with those paragons of fast, smooth championship-caliber greens. Quite simply, they’re just a joy to play.

The bottom line? Quaker Ridge was always a challenging course to play, one of the great ones, but now it is just more so.
