McCann has been in outstanding condition for years. This course is like a quality country club condition-wise. Speed of play has been around 4:30 this year. The highest rate is $42 on weekends, which is only for out of county! Carts for two are $32 and not required. Friendly staff.

I haven't played McCann for about 10 years. When my buddy asked me to play about a month ago. I always remembered the course being OK, but nothing to write home about.

When I went to play, I was pleasantly surprised. The greens are in phenomenal shape. No joke, you're not going to find better greens at any course priced comparably to McCann. Overall course conditions are great. Since then, we've played every weekend. We still play other courses, but this has turned into a regular round for us for the amazing conditions and reasonable price.

If you're contemplating playing here vs. Beekman or Casperkill...I'd definitely go McCann for a better deal and way better greens.

The staff here is super accommodating. I had someone schedule to golf with me and they canceled at the last minute. The woman at the check-in booth was completely understanding and worked it out for me so that I could play with the other two in our foursome. I didn't get her name but she is the best. The course was in great condition and well marked. We didn't stay after to eat but I hear the hamburgers are delicious and a great value. Thank you McCanns !

This course I was recommended while playing a course in northern Westchester. It has a very nice layout and the course condition was good. For a Friday and very nice weather, the pace of play was excellent. I will probably play this course a couple of more times this year.

I live nearby & never heard of McCann. If it wasn't for GolfNow, I never would have even considered playing here.

The staff were very friendly.

The chicken salad on the turn was excellent.

The course was very dry but it gave nice rolls after solid tee shots.

For big hitters there are a few drivable par 4's.

I will return.

I play this course all the time. It gets better every year. Greens are in the best condition ever,,, I always walk this course but at 95 degrees at 1pm I was very glad I rode. Most of the time if you start at 12:30, 1pm you will get a fast round in. The course is fairly wide open. You should enjoy your round.. Food is you very basic grab a dog on the turn.

Played on a Saturday afternoon as a twosome. Finished in 3 hours and 15 minutes. Course was in beautiful shape tee to green. Excellent William Motchell layout. Great variety of holes. Well struck shots will lead to scoring opportunities. I would take on e Mitchlell. Purse over a dozen "destination courses" that grind you up.
