Blackhead Mountain Lodge & Country Club was carefully carved from the scenic terrain of its namesake mountain range, situated in the Northern Catskills. The lush green golf course is tucked away among forested hills brimming with wildlife. Golfers shouldn't be surprised if they are joined by turkey and deer during their game. Bears are even occasionally seen on the golf course. The rolling terrain provides many ups-and-downs throughout, and you'll rarely find a flat lie. The golf course features narrow fairways lined with trees and strategically placed bunkers frame the double-tiered greens. Water hazards come into play on a few holes as well. It is a course that will test your accuracy and force you to strategize your shot placement on every hole. It's a tough test, but the beautiful scenery alone is worth playing a round at Blackhead Mountain.

conditions dry

The course needs rain. I was informed of that prior to teeing off. Greens were in good shape. If the weather cooperates course will be back to being 4 stars.

Tough Course

This is a shot maker's course. It is very short but froth with hazards. In some cases it is unfair. You have to know where to hit the ball on most of the holes, eg on #11 a shot down the middle will end up in the water. However, the Maasmann family is one of the most courteous and fair in all of the Catskills and the course is clearly the most scenic in the area. If you think you're a hot golfer, come here and let's see what you got. It's a challenge. Dan Hoch

Good Shots Are Penalized

First timers are handicapped as many shots are blind. A perfect shot turns out to be a penalty because the fairways are sloped and do not hold many good shots. Overall, fairways and greens were in good shape but greens ran very slow. Course appear old and beat up.

Lots of fun

This is a genuine Mountain golf course with all the associated challenges. Dog legs, water hazards, rock ledges, are all part of the fun here. I really enjoyed playing here as it's anything but boring.

Mountain views

A challenging course with a lot of fun. A lot of places to get into trouble but if you stay on the fairway, you will be in good shape. The cart path is also a challenge and of concern in some spots. Beautiful views!

For the money and the views its hard to beat this course. Staff are very friendly and your treated like family. The 4th green is just pure evil, but I guess its fair in the sense that everyone has to play it, good luck stopping a putt on that hole! Other the my nemesis number 4 the course is a delight to play. Tricky but a lot of fun and you will not find better views along with the occasional whitetail deer family meandering around the course makes it that much more natural and peaceful. If you have the time and are in the area give it a shot and enjoy the outdoors

This course is by far one of the most challenging golf courses you will ever play

This course is by far one of the most challenging golf courses you will ever play. Its built into the side of a mountain. with lots of steep grades, water,ravines, and sloped fairways. Beautiful pristine views from high atop the Blackhead Mountains. On a clear day you can easily see for 100 miles..If you in the area this is a MUST play!!

Nice course, great staff, quick pace of play.

I've played Blackhead several times and I have to say this is my favorite time of the year to play the course. Once mid summer hits the fairways tend to get much tougher to hold (it's on the side of mountain so once they harden up your ball tends to roll or bounce off). Course was in good shape and is a challenge without being impossible to score on. Very scenic as well. I was short on time and only played 12 holes this time but did so in about 1 hour 15 minutes so the pace of play was great (nobody pushing me so I could have taken my time if I wanted to). Staff is always friendly and accommodating even to golfnow customers who might be paying $10 for their round. I'd recommend to anyone for a good golf outing.

Great course. Challenging, but fair, design. Very friendly staff.

This is a great course. Beautiful scenery and a creative design. Another reviewer said that this course was too difficult but I disagree. This course is not overly difficult, but it isn't easy. You are rewarded for good course management. A grip- it-and-rip-it strategy will land you in trouble, literally!! I've played a lot of flat, boring courses, but this one is a nice challenge. The staff are very friendly and the food/beer is amazing. I can't wait to play this course again in the spring.

Great day! Friendly staff! Fun course with spectacular views!!

My son and I had a perfect afternoon! The golf course was in great shape and very fun to play. The views from the course of the mountains and Hudson valley are the best around. Afterwords the clubhouse "barn" was a great place to enjoy a beer and laughs going over our round. The staff is very friendly and we had a great time! Can't wait to go back!

Don't bother

Course is ridiculous. Every hole is a gimmick. You're either hitting a blind tee shot, off an uneven fairway, or into a green that runs off from every angle into woods, water, or an unplayable lie. Don't waste your time or money. Only plus is great views and staff was very friendly.
