Winged Foot Golf Club is a private club with two 18-hole golf courses located in Mamaroneck, New York. The course architect is A. W. Tillinghast, who also designed courses which have hosted major professional golf events such as Baltusrol (Lower) and Bethpage Black. Winged Foot Golf Club was founded in 1921, by a consortium consisting mainly of members of The New York Athletic Club. The club gets its name and logo from the NYAC's logo, but the two have never had any direct affiliation. Winged Foot G.C. opened in June 1923. Application for membership is by invitation only.

The East Course is a par 72 that measures 6,750 yards (6,172 m); it has a course rating of 73.9 and a slope of 141.
