Country Club is mixed-income, mostly upper middle class to affluent residential neighborhood located in the East Bronx in New York City; it shares the 10465 ZIP code with Throggs Neck. Country Club is east of Pelham Bay; and it contains a large Italian-American population.

The neighborhood's boundaries are Spencer Avenue to the north, Eastchester Bay to the east, Layton Avenue to the south, and New England Thruway to the west. This area is policed by the 45th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. Pelham Bay Park (including Orchard Beach), the largest public park in New York City, is located just north of Country Club, which itself is approximately two miles from City Island in Eastchester Bay.
