Vannie in the fall under Covid
I've been a regular at this course for over 50 years. The current management and their staff is better than ever!
Despite the pandemic that has us all in their grip, they have continued to provide a safe haven for all of their dedicated patrons, and new comers alike.
The course is historic as the oldest public golf course in the USA and is a must play for any enthusiast of the game.
Bravo to my friends at Vannie!!
Fun course, Slow Play
Went out to Van Cortlandt Park for the first time this weekend. It’s a charming and quirky course with a cool history.
First, it’s the middle of fall, so course conditions are what they are. It’s also been pretty wet the past few weeks.Overall, the course was in decent shape. There were some muddy spots on the fairways, and some tee boxes without grass. There’s a mat set up on the first tee, which isn’t ideal. Greens were in pretty good shape! Not patchy and rolled smooth - just slow due to moisture which is what you’d expect and totally fine.
I really enjoyed the layout of some of the holes. There are a few narrow fairways, but more times than not you can be comfortable taking a driver off the tee and letting it fly. The course isn’t too long for mid-handicappers, and has some well protected greens and undulating approach shots which keep things interesting. A healthy mix of hole layouts.
My only complaint is pace of play. They book tee times in 10 minute intervals and work to squeeze as many folks out on the course as possible. Not sure you can expect much else from a municipal course in the city. Expect your round to take ~4 1/2 hours.
All in all, I had a great time. Is it the best course in the area? Nope. Is it great value? Good, not great. Will I go back? Absolutely.
Great layout and hardworking and amiable staff__grass is not very good _Hard to hit down on the ball_ someone suggested trying ONION GRASS but great geography JDK
The staff was amazing. For whatever reason even though i booked through the TeeOff app the tee time I booked was double booked. Now worries the staff was very accommodating and managed to make it work and we were able to play. Great experience- would give the staff 10 stars if I could.
Great course layout & variety of holes. Be prepared for lots of walking!
Great golf course.
Very enjoyable course in the Bronx of all places. Very large lots of driving around or walking. Long Par 4s
Wish they take more care to blow the fallen leaves off the course but overall fantastic place.
A little hard to “escape” the city because car noise and traffic is heard at all times. But it is what it is.
Slow pace of play.
Slow pace of play... course is a little off it’s very high standards but still the best in nyc
