Sunday funday!

Always enjoy playing this course even though i don't play my best here (may be me!). Course was wet but to be expected with previous day's rain. Was drying out and greens were excellent.
Winter rates made it decent deal for the money.

Best public course in Tri-state area

Course is always in good shape. Of course, at this time of year the Bermuda is dormant, but turf is still thick and lies are good. Always well maintained. Very nice layout. Challenging but manageable. Course improvements are made every year. This is my home course because it is simply the best within in an hour drive. Staff and owner are super friendly and helpful. The Clubhouse is not the greatest, but you don’t play the clubhouse!!! Owner has put money in the course instead of the clubhouse, which was a great decision for us golfers. Great deals on clubs too. Highly recommend !!!

Excellent golf course for all skill levels

Sugarwood Golf Club is an excellent course for all skills levels. The layout is great and it is apparent that the staff works diligently to ensure the landscaping, turf and features are maintained cyclical and regularly. The pace of play is sufficient for all skills levels (I.e., hack, beginner, intermediate, and advanced) which is transparent of a great course.

Quality Course

Sugarwood is in pristine condition so far (Summer 19). The fairways are tight and the greens are spotless. It is moderately difficult but not overly challenging. Staff friendliness is improving through the years. It can get very crowded, so expect a slower pace of play. The price is a little expensive as well, but overall a great course.

Hidden Gem of a Course

Course is beautiful, well kept, and an unexpected find. Regular rates are slightly high with $39 for 18, riding. But I took a chance and played the course on Monday. I cam back today (Tuesday). Twilight rate (after 4:30 pm) was $29.50.

I would highly recommend this course. Just beautiful.
