Heaven on earth
Absolutely fantastic!!!! You must try!!!!
Oldie but a goldie
The greens are quick and in great condition with pronounced slants, a good challenge. Fairways and tee boxes are in great shape. The sand bunkers need some work on some holes on others they are good. Layout is definetly a plus. Starts out the way a golf course should a moderate straight away par 4. Second hole is a nice left to right downhill, third is a right to left across water allowing you to determine your risk/reward. This is the way the course is mixing holes up and allowing risk shots for easier approaches. There are almost no clubhouse amenities and the only thing interesting in the clubhouse are some of the historical photos. Watch the cart paths they will knock the fillings out of your teeth. I go the "the big G" a few times a year and always enjoy this great old course
Great course but a bumpy ride
The course was beautiful, scenic and in great shape. The staff was very friendly. The clubhouse and locker rooms were in very poor condition. The cart paths were terrible, bumpy and rattled the heck out of your clubs. The only poor conditions on the course were the traps which had very little sand and lots of rocks in them. If you can stay out of the traps and off the cart path this course was excellent and very enjoyable to play. My wife and I played in 3 hours with a 12:14 starting time. I would play it again for sure. It was worth the 1 hour drive.
Golf in the Catskills
with Kutchers and the Concord Closed. Grossingers is the only one left harking back to when the Catskills was the place to go. Great Layount and in Great Shape. The greens are faster than they look.
Beware using golf cart as the paths are shot. You will bounce around quite a bit.
Very little in the way of food and drink.
Whites are 6400 yards. Tips 7044.
great course BUT
this is a flat out great course. only 10th green was bad and they are repairing now. the cart paths are horrendous. if I'm going to pay premium prices, this should be fixed. there is nothing but golf here. snack stand gone. bathrooms old and musty. if they fix paths, this is best golf course around
Worth the ride
A fantastic golf course. Long for the average golfer.
6488 from the whites.
Trip back in Time
One of the classic courses of the Catskills. The buildings have fallen into a state of disrepair but this course still holds a lot of the original charm. The layout is great, plenty of chances to use your full power clubs and test your putting skills. Some of the greens have some patches under repair but hardly come into play. The one thing I cab advise you to do when playing here is to bring a copy of the receipt from golf now.
Poor attitude of staff
I was fortunate to get a HOT DEAL forv$20. Woman at the desk in the Pro Shop had an attitude about this making me feel like I was a 2nd class citizen. It was clear she was unhappy that I paid so little. I arrived about 30 minutes prior to my tee time. There was no one else waiting to tee off. I asked whether we could tee off early and was told we could not at the rate we paid but if I paid the higher rate than I could go out.early. I was told that there was no financial benefit to letting me go out early even though there was no one else around. My reply that the benefit was good will seemed to fall on deaf ears.
If Grossingers has a problem with a $20 rate then they should not offer it!
Facilities were TERRIBLE. Bathrooms were gross, dirty and in disrepair(like the rest of Grossingers)
I would not return nor would I recommend Grossingers.
The golf course doesn't get any money when you book a Hot Deal, all of the money goes to Golf Now. Golf Now works on a barter arrangement, the course gives them two tee times a day in exchange for Golf Now showing their available tee times on their site. It's understandable why a course wouldn't be happy to have Golf Now undersell them.
This course has a beautiful layout. Holes are tough but fair. A golfer's course. You won't be disappointed.
This is one of the best Golf courses in the New York area. It's challenging with a great layout. I look forward to making the trip to play this beauty at least once a year. It's worth the trip. The only problem is there are very limited amenities so bring your own food and drink.
