TEAM NAME & LOGO

New York City is the greatest city in the world, and NYGC embraces the privilege and responsibility that comes with representing the five boroughs and surrounding communities. NYGC will build upon our world-class golfing and sports heritage to deliver a team New York fans can be proud of.

NYGC’s logo is inspired by New York’s state bird, the Eastern Bluebird. These birds are commonly found where forests meet fields, and particularly on golf courses. Our design features a dynamic swinging club crafted into the form of a wing with four grooves, one for each of our players. The circle pays homage to the circles on our scorecards and the iconic NYC Subway circle.
