The Pynes Putting Course
The Pynes Putting Course, inspired by the Himalayas putting course in St. Andrews, Scotland, is a 16,000-square-foot green located on the lawn immediately behind the Museum. The green's undulating design offers a challenging and entertaining experience. It is named for Percy and Evelyn Pyne, who once resided on the property that is now USGA headquarters.
The Pynes Course is open from April through November during normal hours of operation, weather permitting. Visitors should allow 30 minutes to play the nine-hole course. The green fee is $5.
Putters are provided by the Museum and a souvenir golf ball is included with the green fee. Appropriate footwear is required—no high heels or heavy-soled boots will be permitted. For additional information, please contact Karen Geppert at 908-326-1908 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
