Conditions could have been better

It could have been because of all the rain but the greens were bumpy, slow and not in their usual condition. Many of the t-boxes were in poor condition. Again all of this could be because of all the rain we have had but the course was not in its usual good condition. Hopefully this will improve into the fall. I will play here again.

Great layout. Some greens have mud. HORRIBLE STAFF

Course itself was great. Challenging, beautiful, risk reward golf at its finest. Gotta keep it straight or bring a lot of balls. I hope management sees this please fire your whole staff working outside. Kindness goes a long way we are customers and get some real range balls. I will not be back solely because of how the larger older man treated me while I was there. Absolutely unacceptable

Perfect except the greens

Pound Ridge is about an hour north of the city and is the only Pete Dye course available in the area; it's easily a top 5 NY public course.

It truly lives up to the difficulty hype w/ Dye's signature undulation and meticulously planned challenges. Heck, even distance becomes a factor at times where a handful of holes require carrying 210+ (when hitting from 6700yd Oak tees... ) which is arguably too penal for amateurs . Most holes are narrow and many holes are stacked right next to each other. Facilities are top notch and you truly get what you pay for. The only blemish is that their greens are in terrible condition... some worse than your local munis. Some greens arguably need to be completely redone.

Overall, Pound Ridge is a wonderful course that I'd return to for a special occasion. However, due to the higher cost and bad green conditions, it's hard to recommend as a regular weekend course.

Diamond in the rough

It is well off the beaten path but worth the drive. The course is quintessential Pete Dye design which I adore. The staff needs work on customer service. I mean when a bag drop guy steals your pro v1 and laughs about it when you confront him and doesn’t return it then the round starts off sour. Also not accommodating in any fashion with the attitude that he didn’t want to be there in the heat. The course nevertheless is a fun and interesting layout that I enjoyed.

Do you know how many new golf balls the outside staff comes across from balls being left in carts at the end of a round and otherwise?

Great course

Excellent course in top condition. The views and setup of the holes are excellent, and it is a good challenge throughout.

The only negative is that the cost is high - $150 per and $230 per on weekend mornings. The deal on GolfNow was a bit better. This course is very worth playing, but selectively relative to the cost structure.

Worth playing

A little off the beaten path. Well worth the trip. Very good layout. In very good shape. Staff helpful and courteous. First time playing. Tees are appropriate for all skill levels. My wife (36 handicap) did not feel overwhelmed from her tees. Played from the granite tees (6200), tough but fair. Typical Pete Dye rolling greens in great shape and rolled true. Would highly recommended this course to others.

Fun day

Challenging Pete dye course, with undulating greens, narrow fairways. 15 th hole par 3 very odd. Overall, had a nice round, friendly staff, do think it’s a bit over priced

First class course right from the starter handing out towels and water. Great layout and we were never playing up on the group ahead of us even though they were walking. And we never got played up on. will Definitely be back.
