More than 100 acres have been leased by the Gedney Farm Company to the Gedney Farm Golf Club, through Price Ripley, brokers. An eighteen-hole golf course is planned on the property.
Gedney Farm Golf Club's history dates back to the pre-Revolutionary War era when John and Bartholomew Gedney purchased a large tract of land in White Plains. A luxury resort hotel, Gedney Farm Hotel, was built in 1912. Guests included Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. It had an 18-hole golf course, tennis facilities, swimming pool, bowling, squash courts, stables, a polo field, ice skating rink, and a kennel for pets of guests. Howard Willets, who owned racehorses, stabled them in a barn that is now the men's locker room. On September 20, 1924 a fire destroyed the Hotel. Eddie Cantor, a guest at the time, witnessed the 9-hour blaze.
The golf course remained as part of the Gedney Farm Golf Course until 1952 when it was purchased by a group of individuals from Harry Lewis and renamed the Ridgeway Country Club.
