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.

Kingswood Golf Club -- Interesting
Review by: Kyle Logan The thing about this course is to be able to hit your driver. Im 17 years old and hit the ball about 260-270 yards on average. I shot 78 the second time I played there and realized that my driver was the most important club in the bag. on 14, the scorecard says like 526 yards and I cut the corner and ended up with 180 yards. I had a below average ball stroking day but because of my driver, I birdied 3 hole and had no double bogeys. Overall, fun course if you trust your driver.
