The concrete jungle of Midtown Manhattan doesn’t have much to offer golfers in the way of links or fairways, so The St. Regis New York usually sends guests itching for a round to courses in New York’s boroughs or nearby New Jersey. The concierge’s first choice is the Pelham/Split Rock Golf Courses in the Bronx, the city’s only 36-hole facility. The course is quite a distance from the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, and would require a cab ride or commuter train trek. The concierge can also direct you to courses in Staten Island, Queens or the River Vale Country Club in Northern New Jersey. Inquire about the house Bentley for a trip to the links, but be aware that drop-off service comes on a first-come, first-served basis, and borrowing the car will cost you $400 an hour, with a minimum of four hours required.
