The golf course opened for play in 1930. It was molded on 115 rolling acres, set in a natural depression between low wooded hills. The course is a par 71, 6,552 yard course that has no blind shots to its small, well bunkered greens.
The most notable feature of the Mt. Kisco course is the persistent network of streams that cross 13 holes, half the time presenting a major obstacle to be traversed. The course also gains some of its resistance to scoring from its small greens, several of which are devilishly bunkered.
