Always a good time

Greens were a bit inconsistent but still faster than most courses in the Hudson valley. Still not disappointed. Course was in pretty good condition considering how dry it’s been the last few weeks. Restaurant service and food was great. Will be back .

Devilish Greens, great views, a personal challenge

I have played golf for 60 years, and have never played greens like Copake Lake CC. Located adjacent to Copake Lake in Columbia County, NY, the topography of a 100 year old course is unique in these days of hit it long. It is not long, but the greens, which are meticulously maintained, and can take away the strokes that advantage the big hitters. False fronts, sloped pin locations that require you to be below the pin, and several old style turtle back greens challenge even the best putters. For someone like me, who has no length anymore but can still putt, it's one of life's small pleasures. Nice bar and restaurant, and great views of the mountains in the fall decked out in autumn colors. It's my favorite course in the area, where there are a lot of good courses.

Wonderful Dev Emmet Course!

One of my all time favorite Devereux Emmet golf courses. The course has great land and even better greens that do not appear to have been altered.

The rolling terrain make for memorable golf holes throughout the round. Conditions were superb. I still remember darn near every hole. A must play.

Lightning fast greens

With the exception of the obviously unscheduled twosome that was put out in front of our foursome that clogged up the whole pace of play; everything else was perfect. Course is in impeccable condition. Greens are lightning fast.... fairways superb. First time eating at the restaurant. I was very impressed with the selection and quality of both the food and service. Thank you Gabby for your awesome service

A Real Hidden Gem

Played here while on vacation in upstate New York, and I'm so glad I did some research to find this place. It's very quirky and old school, but it's undergone some restoration, so the fairways aren't overgrown with trees and the course is in perfect condition. Firm and fast, just as golf was meant to be played. Be warned, your short game will get a workout.

Great views, fast greens!

This course is a nice change of pace from the norm. A very interesting layout, good mix of long holes vs. short and the fastest greens I've seen this year; in October! Maybe too fast for the undulating character of the greens.

Best views around, beautiful mowing patterns and outstanding service at the bar. Well worth the drive.

Beautiful views ery nice course

Little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Outstanding course with beautiful views. Lots of up and downs with tee boxes hitting down hills. Requires alot of thought when selecting clubs. Nice touch with the firepits on several holes to warm you up on a chilly day.

Gorgeous Course by Lake

In a year where many courses are in dire need of water, Copake was a jewel amongst them. Fast greens, lush tee boxes and some of the best views from the fairway I have seen yet. Great course.
