"Before the Revolutionary War, Dutch and English settlers occupied the land that is now Pine Hollow Country Club. The line that divided their settlements lies only a few miles east of the course. During the Revolutionary War, this land was the bivouac area for Tarlton’s Raiders; Loyalist troops stationed in Oyster Bay.

At the turn of the 20th century, Theodore Roosevelt built his first home approximately two miles east of the course. Since he rode his horses every morning, he was probably familiar with this terrain. Consuelo Vanderbilt purchased the land in the 1930s and her home eventually became Pine Hollow’s clubhouse. During the time she lived here, she hosted many of the world’s most famous dignitaries, including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Winston Churchill and Charles DeGaulle.

The property was sold to a private group in 1955. In 1958, Pine Hollow hosted the Pepsi Open which was won by Arnold Palmer. The purse was the largest on the PGA TOUR that year. In 1960, the facility was purchased by its members as a private club. The course was redesigned by Gil Hanse in 1997. In 2000, it hosted the MET PGA Championship.

Today, Pine Hollow is noted for its rolling hills, unique chestnut trees, and wonderful condition of its fairways and greens. We hope that you enjoy your day here at Pine Hollow Country Club."
