This year, the impressive indoor course will be complemented by an all-new chipping area where guests can test their short game and a new-and-improved driving simulator.

In a marriage of Scotland's two best loved exports, Scotch Whisky and golf, The Glenlivet brings to New York a traditional Scottish links housed in Midtown Manhattan.

The Couse At City Links:
Cleverly conceived by world-renowned golf course designer Arne Lundmark, the City Links course was specially crafted to be assembled in city interiors, dismantled, and driven hundreds of miles to its next destination.
The landscaping of this 9-hole indoor course was inspired by the lush scenery of golf's homeland, Scotland. The streams, bridges, and roughs that are strategically yet artfully placed throughout the course make it both challenging and attractive to play.
Every golf course needs a clubhouse where its players can relax and compare scores with a drink in hand after a few holes. Architect Thomas Shöner has created the City Links Clubhouse exactly for this purpose.
The Clubhouse features a beautifully-constructed bar generously stocked with all four of The Glenlivet finishes, classic clubhouse furnishings, and historic mementos surrounding the lore of The Single Malt that Started it All.
