The 27 holes at Beekman Country Club enjoy a serene mountain setting nestled within the foothills of the Berkshires, just as they rise from the Hudson Valley. The golf course is divided into three nines: the Valley, Taconic, and Highland; that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Valley/Taconic course offers both scenery and challenges. The Valley nine tumbles across rolling terrain and its sixth hole is home to one of the country's largest oak trees. The Taconic nine is the most difficult of the three. It is just as scenic as the other two nines but you can't let that distract you. Accuracy is needed to maneuver the tight fairways. There are also several tricky water hazards throughout the golf course, most notably protecting the front of the green on Taconic's sixth hole.

Very good course with three sets of nine. Each combination offers different challenges. The greens are in great shape and read and roll well and true. Have played there very often these past several years. The personnel at the course are very nice people. Very personable!!

Weather the past few days has prevented cutting the rough so be prepared to do a bit of searching if you lose the fairway! The ball sits down in the high rough and is difficult to locate.

That said, it's my fault the ball is in there. I the guy who missed the shortgrass!

All in all, a great place to play. You'll enjoy it.

The course was in good shape for the time of year, greens were a little slow. I would play the course again although I would prefer playing the Highland and Taconic nines.

There was no starter the day we played, not sure if it was just an issue that day, but a starter is definitely needed at a 27 hole course.

Very cold, not too many golfers, had a 3 1/2 hr round. Course was in very good shape. Greens and bunkers were in very playable shape. The course made it through the winter well. You do have to keep carts on the cart path though.

Course was in great shape considering the weather we have been having. Greens were slow and bump but I assume it hard to roll and cut them in snow storms. I will always recommend.
