Car path only rule is somewhat disappointing

Didn't know it was car path only. Would've preferred walking. Nothing annoys me more than walking to the ball only to realize I took the wrong clubs and had to walk all the way back to the cart to fetch another club. Wish I was told beforehand and so I would choose to walk instead of ride.

It took 5 hours and 10 minutes to play, including 2 hours and 45 minutes for the back nine. One foursome was brutally slow. No rangers on course. For this price, not acceptable.
The course should provide their jugs of filler for divots. Don't know why they don't. Could do so with cleansing.

Bring the A game

Played pound ridge multiple times over the years and make sure you show up committed to play golf. Played oak as 10 handicap and escaped with less than average golf with an 88. If putter wasn’t working it could of been low 90’s easily. Keep it in the middle, Hope to get a good lie/angle, and putt well is the recipe for success. Always in great shape which you pay for, but leave the expectations of scoring well at the range.

All things considered

beautiful course on a very nice day. Very friendly staff. On time start and very courteous starter. Very nice carts.The whole experience was very good. Holes well marked. I liked the handicap rating associated with tee placement.

The only issue on the day was an inconsiderate group behind that hit an approach shot into our tee box without a call out warning. No fore. No apology.

Pete Dye doesn’t disappoint

I love Pete Dye courses... just not when I play them. This course is a true gem. You have the typical Pete Dye mounding and never a flat lie even in the fairway. The greens were fast and true even with a bit of sand still let on them. It’s not a long course but it will make you pay. It’s really a shame this is the only Dye track in New York

One of the best!

This golf course will transport you to a place where you feel like a member at an exclusive club and are playing one of the world’s best courses. A terrific and challenging design. Better have your driver working for this course, bc you’re first shot will make or break you. Bring lots of golf balls if you don’t. Take advantage of the less expensive rate of $100/$125 while you can. Grass was a bit long when we played but given the times I can’t complain.
