Rating 72.1

Although it's only an hour from New York City, the Garrison's secluded location nestled in the Hudson Highlands makes it feel much further. Perched 800 feet above the Hudson River, the 18-hole Garrison golf course offers panoramic views of the river and the surrounding mountains. As beautiful as the rolling hills are, they provide a challenging topography that will keep you from being distracted by the scenery. The rolling greens are flanked with bunkers and water. In addition to the uphill, downhill, and side hill lies, you can expect a few tough carries over deep ravines and stands of mature oaks along the fairways. The elevation changes are especially dramatic on the front nine while the back nine is a bit more open and forgiving, but you'll still need accuracy throughout the entire golf course.

Challenging Course

Run very loosely. No starter and no golf cars available when we arrived. Very backed up waited on most holes but enjoyed our day. Would play again

Fathers Day Treat

Played The Garrison for Fathers Day today and it was as usual a great day! Beautiful weather, course in great contrition and played well!!! From the minute you arrive the friendly staff makes you feel at home and there’s no pressure to play quick on a busy day. The scenery is second to none with views of West Point and the Hudson River! Just Love this course! Highly recommend it!

Tight, expensive, lacking service

The front nine are quite tight, blind shots and a challenge but fair. It opens in the back to get your confidence back before you leave. Views of the river are off the chart. Biggest complaint was no coffee at 8am, no cart person when it’s 80 degrees and and no food available for lunch. For $85 you’d expect to be able to buy a Gatorade during the round and a hot dog after. Used to be a great venue.

Beautiful course

Course was very wet after two days of rain but still held up well. Besides the greens being a little chewed up in some spots, which is basically unavoidable as a public course, it was in great shape.

Slowest Greens

Pros:
Tight course
Great views, quaint
Very quiet

Cons:
Weedy rough, lost balls when in play (found a lot too, so this must happen a lot)
Slowest greens I’ve played in New York. Makes the undulations in the greens almost impossible as you take a full backswing on your putts
Had just cut grass, clippings everywhere
For $55, I could’ve played Bethpage.

Stunning views and great course

This is definitely 1 of the best public courses in the area! They keep the course in phenomenal shape even with all the rain we've had. Great value for your money !

Garrison

considering all of the rain we have had this year, the course is in great shape.
I find this to be one of the most challenging course in this area.
Still so much fun!

Great Course

It seems every time I play here the course is always so wet. There were many clumps of wet grass on the fairways becuse they were just being cut at 12:30. I just hope I can make it out again once it’s actually dry and playable. Thhis review is No reflection on the grounds keeper or the staff.

Good golf course

This course layout is fantastic, but it looks like there’s some drainage problems, rained two days before our tee time and some of the grass was still wet, not sure if it was from that or he sprinkler system. None the less it plays very well! Greens aren’t that fast, but it is very difficult to read them!
