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.

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, 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.

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.

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.

3rd time playing at Saxon. It's a muni,but being in Westchester county its better by far than any city course in NY. Nice layout, a few blind shots off the tee,not much water and lots of elevation changes. Picturesque and a friendly staff with rangers visible at a few holes. We shoot 100+, but keep the game moving.round on a HOLIDAY Friday took almost 5 hours which is expected at a public course in the metro NY area. Course was in excellent shape due to recent warm spring weather and lots of rain in recent weeks. I recommend!

This is the 5th time I played here over the past year and I always try to give it another chance... except for the nice restaurant there's no reason to go back... I never played a fast round there yet... waiting 10-15 minutes between shots is not my kinda pace...I actually stopped after 9 for first time ever in my life cause I was looking at a 6 hour afternoon round

We Just finished a GREAT round here at this Course. All greens were firm and in fantastic shape. Leaf removal was excellent. Tee boxes were well maintained as well as the bunkers. The "staff"...Very Friendly....... the coffee in the halfway house...... good and hot. If Saxon Woods is this Terrific in the Winter on a 39 degree day, it must be a Special Place to play during the regular golf season. The price from Golf Now......Well, let's just say, we WILL be returning.............many times.
