Rating 69.9
Type Public
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!
