Casperkill Golf Club
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.

It is wet for mid April but there are some interesting holes
No starter and not much service for now. Course was still quite wet and there are some interesting holes. Number 2 and 3. Green on 4 is unfair and there some easy holes and the 7th is a great hole. Pretty forgiving golf course but still some fun to be had. Green fee includes some discounts on lunch in the clubhouse. Good local hangout
Great late season condition
1 PM Sunday prime time tee off. A weekend round in 3 1/2 hours! The greens and fairways were in great shape. Tee boxes understandably used heavily, but fine shape. Very enjoyable round. Appreciated that a marshal was on the course helping to keep things going at a good pace. Keep up the good work Casperkill!
Course in nice condition. Was a bit wet, tho we've seen a lot of rain of late. Was early in the day so barely anyone was out there. Starter was super nice. Cruised thru the course in 3.5 hrs (2 of us). Greens are a bit softer and slower than i'm used to, but with the slopes it made them quite challenging. Nice lay-out. You find yourself using most of your clubs. Only odd thing about the course is the par 3's are all basically the same distance. Wouldn't call that a negative tho. Def recommend!
The course is fair yet challenging and in very good condition. Certainly a great value for the price.
Course good condition
Ranger asked that we speed up a little , the foursome in front of us weren’t even off the tee box .
It made my wife nervous that she needed to hurry up, when there was absolutely no need to.
That happened toward the end of the round so got over it.
Course has challenging slopes .
My wife and I enjoyed playing here.
Good day of golf....
Course in great shape. Hank the starter is the best. I will be back.
Play this course NOW!
Course was in excellent shape. Greens and fairways were in excellent shape and rough was thick. Only issue was staff wanted carts in by 7. Plenty of daylight left boys!
Good course, did not honor the lunch
Course was in good shape and not overly wet. Greens were in very good shape. The course did not honor the lunch deal that came with the booking and stated they intend to not participate with Golf Now in the future.
Paid Golf Now for Fee, cart and lunch. Arrived to find cart path only which stinks because of knee surgeries. Went in for lunch to find out oh were aren’t doing that until 5/3. Seriously who starts something on Weds the 3rd of the month. Staff was tied up trying to put up tent for outside dining. Sent person who had started work that day to tell us. Not the end of the world as the dining area looks a little dirty. Greens in great shape and course had a great layout. Slowed up on back nine as it looked like they slipped a twosome in front of us. Golf staff, Proshop and Staryer very friendly.
Great Course to Play
The fairways were in excellent shape. The greens are growing in nicely. Great conditions. Staff is absolutely terrific. Tim in the Pro Shop is so very helpful
Casperkill Golf Course
The course was in reasonable condition, however the greens had been aerated about a week before.
Great RTJ Sr. layout, beautifully maintained. Greens were in pristine mid season form on the last weekend of October - outstanding. Tees and fairways neatly clipped, and the falling leaves were manageable. Kudo's to grounds keeping staff. Pace of play was 4 hours on a busy and perfect Saturday afternoon. Only hiccup was that the golf cart didn't make it past hole #1. We pushed it to the side, placed a quick phone call to the pro shop and strapped on the bags. Amazingly the staff had the replacement cart on the 2nd tee box for us before we finished sinking our putts on #1. What responsive and excellent service! Our group would love to play this course again and again. Thank you to Casperkill!
Second class treatment
Because we used a discount site to make/pay for round golf etiquette by course manager non existent. We were 40 minuets early and only another group went out to play we had to wait 30 minuets to tee off and told due to paying golf now discounted price. No other golfers showed within the 30min.
If this course is run by Billy Casper Golf Inc then I'm not surprised to hear about the rude treatment. That company manages Hudson Hills in Westchester where after being a regular player like 3x per week staff stole my golf clubs & bag and then perjured themselves in court as well.They even offered to sell me a new replacement set at a :"discount"
Casperkill is in Old Time traditional Northeastern course with elevation changes tight Fairways and a nice variation of holes The the course was in great condition which it usually is, quick greens and tough pin placements. A challenge overall for any golfer but a worthwhile challenge to attempt. A nice course and a good test for any skill level
Carts are old and not responsive when stepping on gas pedal. They should be replaced.
