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.

Elevation and elevations

This course is great if you want to use use the slope on on your range finder. The elevations are dramatic but tempered with amazing views. The topography of the course is fun yet challenging. This was my first time on the course and my only regret was the greens had just been aerated. I will go back to garrison golf course over and over.

Great Layout

As many have mentioned the tee boxes and green need some work but the layout, views and friendly staff more than offset these issues. Pace of play was a little slow due to club championships being played but did not diminish the enjoyment. Would definitely recommend and play again.

Has potential...

This course has the potential, and it looks like it's a great layout, but the horrible conditions of the tee box, and the amount of unrepaired ball marks on the green is what's holding it back.

Also, the holes that have green side bunkers, had small rock all over. My buddy missed perfectly rolled putts because of those rocks.

The worst part about this course is that they have only 1 practice green and it's only 20ft x 15ft, which was completely chewed up. The last thing I do before I tee off is lag putt long putts, but I couldn't because you have to putt through dead spots and mud.

They also ran out of rage balls.

I wouod definitely go back, but I think it wouod be more enjoyable if they maintained their course the way they should be maintaining a quality course like Garrison.

Really tough, but challenging

Being a senior citizen Garrison is a very challenging course. However, having played there many times over the years I was able to enjoy a great round of golf.
