Casperkill Golf Club in Poughkeepsie is situated in the heart of the Hudson River Highlands, surrounded by acres of lush, rolling countryside. The course wanders through stands of towering oak trees and circles a few tranquil ponds before moving along the banks of its namesake creek. The gently rolling hills provide the course with elevated tees and terraced greens. Robert Trent Jones designed the golf course in 1944. He created a traditional layout that fully utilizes all of the features of the scenic terrain. The course finishes with a player-friendly hole that offers a great opportunity for a birdie. There is a bunker in front of the green but if played smartly as a three-shot hole, golfers will be generously rewarded. In addition to the golf course, Casperkill also offers a driving range with multiple target greens and a large practice putting green with a chipping and bunker area.

Always solid

I wouldn't put this course on the same level of places like Pound Ridge, Mansion Ridge, or The Links at Unionvale, but it's still a great course to play. If those courses are 5's, Casperkill is a solid 4. It's always a great time playing it, and a fun challenge. One of my favorite courses to keep coming back to. A few tee boxes were beat up (2 or 3 tee boxes) and bunkers were a little wet, but other than that, no complaints. Fairways were good, greens were good. Pace of place was great for a weekend. One thing about this course, is that the conditions are consistent. I just missed a hole in one on #8 by about an inch and I also almost killed someone with an errant 3 wood. So all in all, a great time.

Tee time refused, need a refund, no way to contact GolfNow other than review

The pro shop at Casperkill refused the tee time, saying GolfNow was not authorized to sell it... and had already alerted GolfNow to the situation. I tried to find a way to contact GolfNow, this seems to be the only option. I NEED A REFUND!
By the way, Casperkill was sympathetic and did find a way to accommodate us. We did however have to pay again.
I NEED A REFUND FROM GOLFNOW!!!!

Golnow is getting worse

Paid online booking fee for the course plus an additional charge. Coutse calls me and tells me Golfnow made an error and the tee time was unavailable. Tried calling oland getting in touch with them via phone and or email and they make it impossible. I am still owed money and will not go away. Review not done yet. I book another course through Golfnow. We get there and they tell me Golfnow made an error and the tee time in unavailable. We drive an hour to play. The pro shop was nice enough to let us out. GOLFNOW.....YOU ARE HORRIBLE. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, BECOME CUSTOMWR FRIENDLY AND MOST OF ALL.....STOP BEING SO GREEDY AND ABOUT MONEY. CUSTOMER FIRST....REMEMBER??? Yes, I'm angry

Great Layout

The course has a great layout but there greens are always slow. The course also gets soaked super easy and it seems like they have no drainage. One of my favorite layouts that is very gettable. If they could take care of this place the way McCann down the road does, they would have one of the nicest courses around. For how much you pay you are better off going down the road to play the municipal course.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We with the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Casperkill Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Worth the 80 minute drive

All the courses in New Jersey are closed so We picked this one, 80 minutes from my house, based on reviews I have read and the fact that it was a Robert Trent Jones design course. Couldn’t have made a better decision! The staff was fantastic. The course was in great condition and we had just a beautiful great day during the corona time.

Old School

Old school layout by Trent Jr. Really really enjoyed this layout....shot making and not head banging length needed. Everything about it was enjoyable. The woman in the pro shop was extremely nice. Golf Now had me booked but she didnt have it on her computer. Showed her confirmation and she was able to get me out quickly.
No 2 holes look or played alike, My kind of track. Not overly punishing if you keep it on the planet.
Try it...you will like it
