Legendary golfer Billy Casper will entertain members at Hampshire Country Club on Saturday, September 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Casper will participate in a Q&A at a member breakfast, provide swing and putting tips, sign autographs and take photos with Hampshire members.
The Masters and two-time U.S. Open champion with 51 PGA TOUR victories has close ties to Westchester County, having won his first major, the 1959 U.S. Open, at Winged Foot.
“Coming to Mamaroneck brings back wonderful memories for me,” says Casper, a member of the PGA and World Golf Hall of Fame. “I look forward to seeing everyone and making new friends; sharing tales and tips with golfers who love this great game is an honor.”
“Billy Casper’s unbelievable career, affection for the game and genial personality will make memorable experiences for our members,” says Steve Till, General Manager of Hampshire.
Overlooking Long Island Sound and only 30 minutes from Manhattan, the 116-acre Hampshire Country Club was organized in 1944. The golf course was designed by Devereux Emmett and built in 1927 amid idyllic, picturesque surroundings. It was fully renovated in 2004 by renowned architect Stephen Kay to an 18-hole, 6,326-yard, par-71 championship layout with small, elevated greens and narrow, tree-lined fairways.
Redesigned in 2006, the expansive, stylish and handsomely-appointed clubhouse is home to both casual and upscale dining options. The restaurant, café, banquet area, outdoor patio and swimming pool feature expansive views of the Sound. With seating for up to 240, Hampshire is a natural destination for weddings, corporate outings and other social engagements.
