Nationally renowned golf architect, Robert Trent Jones designed a scenic, fairly flat 18-hole golf course on this large tract of farmland in Pleasant Valley. To golfers' delight, the par 5, 13th hole is one of the most challenging in the Hudson Valley.

I like the layout. and the new irrigation system is improving conditions. The greens have just about recovered from a very difficult Winter that affected all the area courses.

I've played this course a few times year over the past 6 years. It's a great layout and challenging course when conditions are good. It is a state park and limited by state funds mostly. UNFORTUNATELY, the state is pulling funds from these parks. Yesterday, the grass in the fairway was 3 to 4 inches. I've never seen fairways uncut like this. Every lie was a hosel grabber and noone mentioned this when we paid. I love the woman who greats us but as cool a layout this course has from the back tees it is completely unplayable at the moment. It's something you'd envision in a post-apocolyptic movie scene. Absolutely horrid.

It's frustrating not to have a review category for design or "interest" of the course. Although it looks boring at the start, in fact the Robert Trent Jones design makes almost every hole (except the first and last) different and interesting. The fairway grass was shaggy or wispy, and the bunkers were the worst I've seen in my 45 years of golf (strewn with rocks and broken shale) but the layout of the course made me think on every tee and every approach. And the greens, though not manicured, rolled true and presented enough contour to make them fun. Overall it was an enjoyable round and a great value.
