well maintained course

Saxon has improved over the years with better upkeep by the greens keeper. Not a long course but can be tight on some holes. Good 19th hole.

A solid 4STAR public course.

Every course on golf now gets 4 stars!!!

Played Twice in last 2 weeks.

Saxon Is a muni that plays more like a high end public/private course. It's a solid 4 Star public course.

The layout is great. If you appreciate old course designs that are well maintained. This is a course for you.

2 hrs front 9 2 1/2 hours back 9

It got a little slow on back, but not awful.

Rangers are everywhere! They do their best.

This course is now one of my favorites.

Conditions are great right now. Fairways & greens solid shape. I rank it above Hudson Hills, Centennial, Richter, or Sterling Farms I give those courses 3Stars. Oak Hills 2.

I'll drive the extra 10 minutes to play Saxon

Where it can improve

The driving range is a blight (caddyshack) and takes away from the Old Tudor Charm and class it could have. Would not be disappointed if they bulldozed it tomorrow and put a short game practice facility in there. Not a fan of Limited distance balls!

Note golfnow info states no driving range that's wrong

And golfnow has chipping green that's wrong....

Good Muni

good muni, would play again. great restaurant. only issue was that played in afternoon and very hot but the few water coolers out there were never filled and empty. Sunday and no cart girl, only half way shack.

first ever course i played with this poor conditions. the course itself was great if not for this. this was only reason for only 3 stars, could have been 4.

Beautiful for a Public course#

Absolutely gorgeous....beautifully maintained....felt like a high end private country club for $46 (Senior Rate) & did not expect GPS in my new gas cart that included a sunbrella canopy draped to each side for protection against rain. Driving range & practice facility was an added bonus. Food & Bar was also great in that you can also eat, drink & be MERRY outside in a choice of several patio areas. Greens felt like carpet. In summary my kind of place less than 1/2 drive from NYC.

as close as muni gets to Quaker Ridge, Winged Foot

Excellent, distinctive layout with every variety of hole on 1 course. Fast greens that were very firm (play well short, especially on the many uphill approaches and from very heavy rough). Fair value but don’t expect to play in less than 5 hours.
