Cassadaga Lakes Country Club -- one hole lowers the rating
Review by: steve l. I have played cassadaga hundreds of times- but because of no.8 a par 3, I won;t go back. The hole is a tough uphill shot. Thats not the problem, its the constant condition of the green. The green has a severe slant and is cut so low, that it is IMPOSSIBLE to hold. Putting on it is like a minature golf course. You must rely on luck, not skill which stinks. The greens should be mowed higher, to at least make it fair . But for some reason, the management will not do it. Trust me I am not alone with this concern, I know people who have pulled out of cassadaga leagues because of no.8. Its too bad because the rest of the course is ok.

Thomas Carvel Country Club -- Not worth the trip
Review by: Mr. Phounk First off, let me just say that this is a beautiful course asthetically. Some of the views are the best in the Hudson Valley, and definitely warrant a few seconds to gaze and soak in. With that said, let me let out some beef. Granted, I played towards the end of the golfing season (September, 2005). So, the course itself has probably seen better days. But, I've never seen dust clouds form when a chip lands on the green. Also... I'm not a fan of blind fairways. At points, you waste more time driving up to make sure you're not hitting into the group in front of you as they search for their balls which they had no chance of seeing land. One BIG beef I had was that the yardage markers were non-existent. You think you are 100 yards away, but then realize that there are tons of red sticks marking a hazard. You think you're 200 yards away, but realize that they also spray their spinklers a convenient blue to make it easier for the landscapers to water the dusty fairways. Towards the end of the round, I've practically given up keeping score, and was more concerned with dusting myself and my bag off from all the dust. Oh yeah... did I mention that the cart paths aren't paved... but basically dirt roads with fist sized rocks that you should ride an H2 rather than a cart.
