Although the club was founded in 1898, Wykagyl’s current golf course dates back to 1905. The course was originally laid out by member Lawrence E. Van Etten, and was subsequently redesigned by two of the greatest golf architects in history – Donald Ross in 1919 and A.W. Tillinghast in 1931. In 2006, the course was renovated and restored by Coore & Crenshaw, the preeminent design team in golf. At just under 6,700 yards from the back tees and playing over rolling terrain with considerable elevation changes, undulating fairways and thought-provoking playing angles, Wykagyl is challenging for the expert golfer, yet playable and enjoyable for the novice.
Wykagyl has a rich tournament history. Some events that have been held at the club over the years include the Palm Beach Round Robin from 1948 through 1952, 1956 and 1957, the Red Cross Tournament in 1944, the LPGA Talk Tournament in 1977, the LPGA Golden Lights Championship from 1978 through 1980, the LPGA Chrysler - Plymouth Classic in 1982, the LPGA Master Card International Pro-Am in 1984, the Japan Airlines Big Apple Classic from 1990 through 2000, the LPGA Sybase Classic from 2001 through 2006, and the 2007 HSBC Women''s World Match Play Championship. The club also held the Ike Championship in 2013 and will be hosting the Metropolitan Open in 2018.
