Good service but not worth the $

Quirky layout with very meandering greens which they charged full price to play even though they had not healed from aeration
The range is well enclosed by a newt at about 210 yards and pretty beaten up. Good putting and chipping area
It’s highway robbery to charge 250 for this course
Staff was nice
Course needed tlc especially bunkers

Enjoy the beauty of the course....because it will eat your lunch

Typical Pete Dye course....beautiful and REALLY tough! The mounding, blind shots, undulations, forced carries etc....a course you need to play a few times to understand how to play it. As i told one of my playing partners....this course eats your lunch and vomits it back up at you (sorry for the graphics detail). Already recommended it to several people. Like to see a few more deal times to keep it affordable for blokes like me

A Must Play Course

Went on afternoon of July 4 and course was wide open. Free range balls and nice putting and chipping areas. There are five tee boxes to play from, and on the first tee signage suggests which tee box based on your handicap. The course is very challenging. Fairways are tight and undulating. The rough is actually penalizing. The biggest challenge, by far, are the rolling, lightning fast greens. The back nine features at least three holes where you need to carry drives over waste areas ending in rock walls. Even more intimidating is a par 5 on the back with a monolithic rock dead center. Near the end is a tricky par 3 with a long narrow putting green protected by waste areas in front and rocks behind the green. Lots of water coming into play. A great experience and looking forward to another shot at it. Staff is very friendly. My one suggestion would be to differentiate the tee markers with brighter colors.

Best in the area...but!

This was my third round at Pound Ridge. The first time I have played it with my 15 year old son. His jaw hit the ground when we pulled up just seeing the beautifully manicured grounds.

Pound Ridge is unique as it is the only public course in this area that could easily be confused with a private club. I would have given it 5 stars if not for 2 items that I find consistently annoying:

1. Beware of going out without a foresome. I don’t know what it is about this course that attracts rude and inconsiderate players.

2. I booked a hot time. Despite the fact that it was wide open (literally 20 straight open tee times), the GM made us wait for our time. Who’s it going to hurt Mr GM?

All in all, I highly recommend this course for anyone who can afford the fees. Just try and fill your group to avoid the inevitable single (20 handicapper) who wants to experience the course from well back!

A Special Value and Course

Fantastic conditions and course. Expensive but worth the splurge. New equipment this year for their greens (they had just used when I played) which makes them immediately firmer and faster.
Also removed a lot of trees to get more air circulation and sun in. I know conditions were hard for everyone in the northeast last year with the rain. This will help a lot. They’re rolling great unlike some others that are still wet and soft all the time.

Home of the 5 hour round

Do waste your going in the afternoon. There was a group on the tee on almost every hole. Staff leaves at 4 pm. Not worth the hour ride and 150 dollars.

Championship course with slow greens

I could not say anything bad about the course but the greens were extremely slow for a course what reminded me over some of the nicest country clubs I have had the honor to play! Staff was amazing, very busy so was held up on a few holes but still got it in around 4 hours!

A very enjoyable round on a challenging course

Earlier comments about course condition and staff friendliness had me thinking about my choice, but I was very happy to see a course in fantastic shape and the staff absolutely professional, attentive and welcoming. I struggled with some brutal thick rough on some holes (even losing a couple of balls in the rough) but was told it will be cut back a bit. The layout demands target golf on some holes and very rewarding if successfully navigated.
