Awful staff

I live 10 minutes from this course, but yet I choose to play Westchester courses because of the friendly staff in Westchester,. The staff at Van Cortlandt golf course from the kitchen to the person issuing starter tickets, to the ranger on the first hole (who has been doing this for 12 years) are the most unprofessional staff on a golf course I have been around., but nothing will happen since this is a city government run course..
The course it asked was great, except for the tee boxes. I will never spend 146.00 for two and a cart on this course again.

OH NO

The tee-boxes play like you’re in the rough, the greens play like you’re on the fairway.
Should have asked for a refund.

Will do it again!

I played this course mid week and outside of the 1st tee box it was in great condition. The starter was doing his job and making sure everyone was moving along. If your going to play this course i highly recommend playing mid week with a 730-8 am starting time. it took just under 4 hours to play. Great job guys keep it up.

RE: GREAT VALUE

Nice playable course - great for beginners and weekly golfers. Can be challenging if no tin fairways but not very long so you can score here. Greens are super slow so adapt to them... Overall a nice time out.there both times I played it, I will be back ... .

Van Cortlandt

Fairways were in good shape & tee boxes need Attention. The greens were WAY TOO SLOW. It's the only reason I wouldn't recommend it yet. They have to care for the GREENS a little more. Cut them and roll them.

Bad course

The course itself was generally well kept. With the exception of the first tee box, the rest of the grounds were well kept. The layout is very different from other courses. Very spread out and tough to walk. Gold cart is recommended but very expensive for a public course. Also had an issue with a ranger picking up a ball in play that the person I was paired with was playing. Had total disregard for the rules and attempted to place blame on the golfer because he was “taking too long”. This was a bogus claim since we had good spacing from the group behind us for most of the round. I would not recommend playing this course.
