Decent course

Good course to get in some swings while vacationing.Fairways ok. Roughs run high lots of dandelions. Tough to find your ball. Greens were very nice and fast. Lots of trees plan to lose some balls if your a beginner.

"Rough" Day

Course in decent shape for the weather we've had last few days. Not sure about the fairways, I only found 2 of them today. Rough day day for me, but overall course in pretty good shape. One to a cart, but to be expected.

Tee boxes and old reviews

#10-#17-##18 on the back 9 need to be leveled out better they are now.
#3-#4-#5 on the front nine need to be leveled out better also, and all these holes I am speaking of are from the gold tees.

I think you need to get more current reviews in place of the 2015-2017 reviews because none of them mostly don't apply to the present front nine.
Overall Vassar is a great course to play. and the staff is great and will help you out in any way if they can.

This course is fun to play....almost anytime of the week!

Vassar Golf and Country Club is a great place to have an outing and just to have a great time playing golf. There are a few holes where the tees need some work and I am referring to the gold tees, but nothing a regular golfer couldn't handle. If you enjoy golfing for fun then this is the place to go!
The staff is a tremendous if you need help with your game or anything else you may need...they are there to help you.

The course is very well maintained. Staff was excellent, and very helpful. Some of the other golfers would not allow anyone to play through (there was only two of us)

Best value in The Thumb

We got their GolfNow hotdeal, $10 for 18 w a cart. Front 9 was excellent. Great fairways and greens 1-9! Back 9 was good but dry and hard through most of it. Saw their fall rates and can't wait to get back a few more times before it's too cold!

Redesign improving

By far the best course in the immediate area. Greens and fairways in good shape. Most days pace of play is good. Staff is outstanding always ready to help. Front nine redesign is a work in progress. It's still a little awkward but its growing on me. You need to do a lot of thinking to play it well. The back is more straight forward.

re-design

the redesign of the front is horrible, fairways 2" thick, groung spongy, ball hit and stop no roll at all. back not bad, #8 tee box is 10yds off back of range (new). all in all the redesign ruined a relatively nice little course, I feel it was changed to make money off the not-so-good-golfers, not a course for the accomplished player
