From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pomonok Country Club was a country club in the Pomonok neighborhood of the New York City borough of Queens. The golf course was located between Kissena Boulevard and 164th Street, just to the south of Horace Harding Boulevard (now the Long Island Expressway) and to the east of Queens College.[1]

The club was established in 1886 by members of the Flushing Athletic Club in Flushing and moved to the Kissena Boulevard location in 1921. The members disbanded and sold the course in 1949. Part of the site today contains the Electchester cooperative housing development.[1]

The golf course hosted the PGA Championship in 1939, which Henry Picard won. The tournament was held at the same time of the New York World's Fair, which was located at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) miles northwest of Pomonok Country Club.
