Rating 71.8

Located just minutes from historic Rhinebeck, Red Hook Golf Club is nestled in the beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley. The course is player friendly enough to appeal to a wide range of skill levels and diverse enough to appeal to anyone's tastes. There are holes that are ideal for long hitters but you'll also have the opportunity to work on your irons and short-game skills. Several strategically placed bunkers lurk along the greens and a few water hazards also come into play, most notably on the par-5 third hole where a lake sits in the center of the fairway. Red Hook Golf Club finishes with a tough par 4 that requires a tee shot over a deep hollow to a sloped fairway with trees and a pond lining the left side. After that, you'll be faced with an elevated green protected in front by steep bunkers.

Tight narrow track, accuracy a must.

Beautiful classic design parkland course. Not the longest course in length but still presents many challenges. Many holes have dog legs and with strategically placed bunkers, you must think where to place the ball for position. Thus pretty much a second shot course. On this hot and humid day, greens weren't really receptive and putts ran fast. Being a semiprivate course, tee times I guess aren't stacked so course conditions were great from tee boxes to greens. With no beverage cart and food available, off course amenities is what pretty much lacked. At least I was told this when I checked in.

Beautiful Course!!!

On this crisp autumn day, the vistas from every hole were breathtaking. The manicured greens and fairways could hardly have been nicer. The holes require a variety of shots and strategy, with the back nine surprisingly different from the front. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If I lived in the area, this is definitely a course I would play frequently. I strongly recommend the course to anyone who gets a chance to play it!

Wonderful

Great as always. Great greens. Fairways were in good shape and the sand traps which I had the pleasure of being in were raked and ready for play. The best bang for your buck around here with or without a discount.

Great day!

Course was in excellent condition and we had it all to ourselves. Always a great experience playing Red Hook and they are always improving the course. They are in the process of adding three new bunkers (two fairway, one green-side) to #17.
Highly recommended.

Great course at a great price

Played my round as a single in 2 hours and 45 minutes. Also shot my best round of the year with an 84 from the whites. Conditions were for the most part quite good, however they were aerating the tee boxes and there was a lot of sand on them. 1 green was a little shabby, but rest of course was in very good shape. If you have never played this course, I would recommend it to you. Pro shop and bar area are top notch.

Nice 1hr 10 minute ride, well worth the trip

Golf now made this a great value, played with Dave from Poughkeepsie and he knew the course, helped me with strategy. Staff was friendly, clean facilities. I'll show up an hour ahead next time, take advantage of the practice range. Excellent course design, fairways and greens were top notch, well bunkered, fair rough. I will return.

Beautiful course, staff leaves a lot to be desired.

This is a great course for the area, it's always in good shape. The fairways are plush and the greens roll very well. A few greens are in rough shape but overall very good. The staff however is another story. Everytime I go there I am met with rude people in the pro shop/restaurant. They never seem great fun for your patronage, more so inconvenienced by your presence.

Worth the Drive

The course is about 90 minutes from my house. Staff extremely friendly and the course is in great shape, especially the greens, lighting fast. Overall round 4:15 not bad for a Saturday afternoon. Could have gone faster but the foursome in front of us were playing for nickles.

Greens excellent and memorable holes

Course was in great condition especially the greens were very smooth. Putted a 50 footer in. There were some very interesting holes which I wish I had studied beforehand requiring strategy.

First time "not" Last time

What a surprise, my first visit, greeted by friendly staff and enjoyed a great day on the course. Picked up a great deal on GolfNow and found a course that was in great shape all around. There were a few greens that needed work and they were doing that, however, after the winter we had it was the best conditioned course than any others I have played this year. Went out with a friend, we were paired with a couple who have played the course before and were very helpful on giving us tips, I felt I had my personal caddy. I will return, especially if GolfNow offers another great deal.

Red Hook in the fall

Always love this course. Pro staff friendly and helpful. Scenic course. Front 9 newer layout more open nice open to a round. Back 9 more narrow, more position golf, nice challenge. Conditions very good with a good job of fall leaf removal. Greens in very good shape, medium speed with very little undulation

Very nice laid back course

Open fairways that are deceptively difficult to stay on. The course is in excellent condition.Greens are excellent, but fast. Most upscale public course in the Valley. Other golfers are friendly and courteous .Love to play here and will make it a habit next season.

The restaurant is great, friendly, good food, good prices and reasonably quick service.
