HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. (June 15, 2023) – With more than 25 years of culinary experience, Joseph Day is the new executive chef at The Saint Andrew’s Golf Club.

Day joins The Saint Andrew’s Golf Club after serving in a similar capacity for two years at Quaker Ridge Golf Club, a private golf club in Scarsdale, N.Y. He supervised four kitchens there, overseeing as many as 20 employees. It was his second stint at Quaker Ridge as he was Executive Sous Chef for three years beginning in March 2002.

Prior to Quaker Ridge, Day worked at Hudson National Golf Club where, in 2006, he joined his mentor, Gerard Bourkney. Day started at the Croton-on-the-Hudson property as Chef de Cuisine before earning a promotion to Executive Chef in 2017 when Bourkney retired. In all, Day remained at Hudson National for nearly 15 years.

Day also has held chef positions at Morefar Golf Course (Brewster, N.Y.), Peter Pratt’s Inn (Yorktown, N.Y.), and Crabtree’s Kittle House Restaurant & Inn (Westchester, N.Y.), where he was mentored by Bourkney.

Day earned an Associate of Arts and Sciences (A.A.S.) degree in Culinary Arts from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  As part of his education, he served a six-month internship at Harbourside Ocean Bar & Grill in Auckland, New Zealand.

Day also earned an associate degree in Hospitality & Culinary from the State University of New York at Delhi. During this period, he also interned for six months at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y.

“We are delighted to add an executive chef the caliber of Joseph Day to our team,” said Martin Murphy, President, The Saint Andrew’s Golf Club. “Throughout his career, Joseph has displayed a flair for delivering first-class cuisine and earning a great reputation among his peers and those with whom he works in the kitchen.”

America’s oldest golf club and founding member of the USGA, The Saint Andrew’s Golf Club is one of golf’s venerated historical venues. Only 20 miles from New York City boasting views of the NYC skyline, members and their guests enjoy the game in a spectacular setting and play one of the area’s best-conditioned and exciting layouts — a challenging par-71 golf course redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1983.
