This hilly course has well-manicured greens. Water hazards (eight ponds) come into play on a number of holes, and the tree-lined fairways are bordered by a standard cut of rough. The ladies' par is actually 75. There are two separate weekday green fees available; one for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the slightly higher fee shown for Monday and Friday.

A great value, Jan 17, 2009
from Carmel, N.Y.
|Oviously Mr. Phunk was in a funk the day he played and didn't bother to give the course a second try on a beautiful weekend morning when all other courses are packed full at twice the price. Nor did he mention how friendly and courteous the staff is. Nor that the fairways, though long, are forgiving and yet challenging for all levels of golf. Yes, the course needs, and is getting a makeover. But the greens are usually in tip top shape, the front nine is pleasantly isolated and the scenery on the back nine is virtually unparalled in the area. There is simply no better value around.|

Not worth the trip, Sep 24, 2005

|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.|
