Fun little sporty layout

Had fun although I arrived late and had to rush around to get 18 in. I only got 17 , but like I said it was my fault and sun was setting early. A lot of shortish par 4’s, but setting for greens and their condition made it very interesting. It’s late in season and bar wasn’t open, but again it was my fault. Need to it hit it fairly straight. If u get off fairway the apple trees will make life miserable!

Beautiful

This course is always beautiful but it’s even more so in the fall. The conditions were awesome and the rangers and starter couldn’t have been more friendly.This was a great day of golf.

Great course

I was very impressed with this course. I play all over the tri-state area and decided to give Apple Greens a try for the first time based on all the positive reviews I've read.
As a first timer, I benefited from advice given to me by my playing partners. There were a handful of blind tee shots, but nothing crazy. I recommend walking the course, as it was not too much of a challenge.

Pros-
-very well maintained
-nice layout
-great mix of long and short holes
-great scenery and views of the hudson valley
-walkable for most
-pace of play
-smells like apples on every hole

Cons-
-rows of apple trees make for a difficult hazard to avoid
-bit of confusion on first tee. Starter told us we were next and somehow two groups got in front of us. Not a big deal once we were out, though

Tips-
-there aren't too many places to lose a ball on this course, but stay out of the apple trees because you will feel like you're being penalized

Beautiful Course

Played the course which is always challenging which ever of the 3- 9 holes courses, i like the 10th throurh the 27th the best, and this time of year you can eat some apples during the round makes it even better. The views are outstanding and the course crew are always great to deal with. I highly recommend this course.

pretty course, much apples

good condition overall, green still is in healing stage from aeration. little slower moving than I expected, but 4~5 rangers keep push and help front groups.
Off the fairways, tough to find balls due apple fell down season. fantastic values: price vs. quality vs, travel distance.

great fairways

Play this course if you are in the hudson valley part of NYS. Course was in great condition with great views of mountains..staff very friendly and the fairways really good shape. The rough was cut at a height that let even the new player have a chance to advance the ball.

Great day

Played with my brother, nephew and friend. Course conditions were the best I played this year. The views were great. Reason I gave a poor for off course amenities was paying $7.50 for 1 hot dog = no drink or fries included.

Definitely would play the course again. Worth the travel time of 2 hours away.

My favorite course strikes again!

I don't know what it is about this course... but it's totally my favorite ! I golf 2-3 times a week, mainly utilizing the phone app's for better prices. Sometimes this course can be found for insanely cheap tee times, while other times I just have to do my best to convince my friends to pay a little more for some higher quality golf. The course is an hour drive from our town, but we still come up pretty frequently. The layout of the 27 holes is unlike other courses in the area, including CT. Lots of dog legs to the left, and lots of just interesting green and sand locations. The pin locations were not easy this past weekend, but were different than other times we've played the course and changed the holes to a large degree. I really enjoy this course, the conditions are always great, and the greens are among my favorite. Pace of play has never been an issue for us here whatsoever... the only thing we have to account for is how difficult it is to leave without deciding to play an extra 9 holes! Great experience, Great Course.
