Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

Shawnee Country Club -- Fun and fast
Review by: Jim Shawnee is a well rounded 9 hole course tucked in the outskirts of Sanborn, NY. Water hazards, sand traps, dog legged, narrow tree lined fairways, this course has it all. Excellent for beginner or young golfers, Shawnee is great place to practice fundamental skills, while it is still challenging enough to be alot of fun. This course can also be played by a foursome in about 2-3 hours, makeing it great for an after work golf outing.
