    On the Western Shore of the New York Bay rests Liberty National Golf club, a $250 million

    world-class golf course with a state-of-the-art $60 million clubhouse. The very selective

    clientle includes founding members former New York city Mayor Rudy Giuliani, New England

    patriots owner Robert Kraft, and former NYSE director Sir Ken Langone.

    Liberty national Golf clubs roots began in 1998, when Reebok Founder & Chairman Paul

    Fireman and his son Dan first visited the patch
    firefall gold of real estate off i-78. after

    bringing in former U.S. Open champion Tom Kite and golf course designer Bob Cupp, a

    stunning layout was constructed that gives unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty and

    Manhattans skyline on 15 of its 18 holes. it opened, fittingly, on Independence Day, 2006,

    setting a new standard for architectural and Wakfu

    Kamas landscape design Liberty National is about much more than golf, its a lifestyle,

    said Dan Fireman.

    Barely over one year old, the $60 million waterfront clubhouse is the crown jewel of

    Liberty National. Paul and Dan Fireman decided to bring in New York-based firm Lindsay

    Newman Architecture for some local flavor. In what is a stark contrast to other, more

    traditional clubhouses around the world, the modern glass design of Liberty Nationals

    clubhouse was chosen because of its location across the Hudson Bay. Vicente Wolf, who is

    also from Manhattan, was brought in to outfit the interior.

    Each of the rooms inside the 57,000-square-foot clubhouse was designed with a purpose. The

    Formal Dining Room and Library allow for wide views of the Harbor and course, with the

    Library located one floor above. Next door to the Formal Dining Room, the West Lounge

    stands over the golf staging area, where bags and carts are picked up. One story above, the

    Cigar Terrace features the same view. Completing the shape of the clubhouse is the East

    Lounge, situated over the private swtor

    credit boat landing and the Statue of Liberty.

    In addition to the Formal Dining Room, the clubhouse has The Grill Room, an informal

    alternative setting decorated with the etchings of Anish Kapoor. Within the restaurant, the

    Grill Bar is a good place to share a quick drink or two. during the evening, the Night Bar

    allows for an intimate atmosphere with flat screen televisions that line the elegant walls.

    The amenities provided are some of the most inventive in the field and fit in perfectly

    with the Clubs environment.

    Just a little more than three years after its inception, Liberty National Golf Club played

    host to the PGA Tours Barclays Championship. The 7,400-yard, par 71 course sits on roughly

    160 acres of land along 4,000 feet of waterfront. Using what the best courses around the

    country use, Bob cupp and Tom Kite fitted the tees and fairways with L93 bent grass, a seed

    usually reserved for greens. For the greens, Cupp and Kite used A4 grass, the same that

    augusta national uses. Liberty National also features the most advanced irrigation and

    drainage system ever designed for a golf course, involving each and every bunker. a mix of

    both parkland and link-style courses, Liberty National features a wide range of distances;

    the longest hole is 623 yards (8th), and the shortest is 149 yards (14th). Towering over

    the 18th hole is the Statue of Liberty from less than 1,000 yards away.

    A full caddy and on-course concierge service
    cheap wow gold is available, although members

    and guests can opt to utilize the pristine cart paths made of imported Belgian curbstone

    decorating the edges instead. in addition to the five-star global concierge service,

    Liberty National also boasts a private helipad along the greens, and a unique high-speed

    launch service, which allows for a 12-minute door-to-tee experience.

    Hosting the Barclays was just the beginning. Liberty National is currently in the running

    to host prestigious events such as The Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, and U.S. Open. about the

    possibility of more PGA events coming to Liberty National, Tom Kite said, Bob Cupp and I

    have spent years of detailed planning to create a truly outstanding golf experience at

    Liberty National, and Im confident the result is a course that will someday host a major

    championship golf event.

    U.S. with yearly dues of $25,000.
