Played on Veterans Day, there was a football game at Westpoint which meant heavy traffic..took 30min longer than usual. The greens were aerated and excruciatingly slow. There were leaves everywhere including fairways and greens, would lose balls on the fairway and practically impossible to putt. Would not recommend playing here at this time of year...maybe things will be better next spring or summer. Staff wasn’t friendly either.

Love this course but greens were airrated and Sand traps were washed out. They had gotten lots of rain the night before. This course plays longer then the yardage says... I'll have to wait til next year to play this course again when it will be in great condition.

WOW ! Golf Now you are not wanted here ! From the moment we arrived our 4 some and the 4 some in front of us who also booked through Golf Now. We were ready the riot act right from the moment we arrived. We got there 30 mins early and we were told we could not speak to the cashier in the make shift golf shop until 10 minute before our tee time ( 2:40 for a 2:50 tee time) , and would not be allowed on the 1st Tee until exactly 2:50 pm our tee time . ( even know there were on other golfers around ) . We were also made to sign a form which said they have the right to remove us from the course at any time and they did ! We were not allowed to use the golf cart to bring golf bags to or from our cars because we were golf now customers only non golf now customers were allowed to. Then the Starter informed us we were not on his list and would not be allowed to golf . We had to go back to the Ski Lodge aka golf pro shop and go through the whole process again with a special paper saying we could golf . Now it was 10 minutes past our tee time and we were being told we would not be allowed on the course after 6:00 pm and would be rounded up if we didn't return by 6:00 pm. after this fun start we enjoyed a bit of good golf until 4:30 when we were being stalked by the ranger who keep shouting 6:00 pm closing head in by 5:45 .. he kept this up again at 5:00 pm then 5:30 and finally at 5:46 we were forced to leave the course while only playing 14 holes . The sun was still shinning bright and there was plenty of day light left to play. I never have been thrown off a course before this was the most awful experience you could imagine . and we weren't the only ones the 4 some in front of us also were tossed and had the same bad experience . They too booked through Golf Now. Beware Golf Now Customers you will be court Marshaled ! I don't know why they hate Golf Now but why treat Golfers with such disrespect ! We are customers I don't care if I paid $5 or $100 this was no way to treat a customer who normally would tip the starter , and buy hats and shirt from the pro shop after all it is West Point ! Wow , Wow , Wow Shame on them !

Obviously he try to give me hard time for nothing

I wonder is this your policy to make people obnoxious when we get through golf now?

We had a tee time just after the Army was practicing. They would not let us get a cart till 10 minutes before our teetime. No one told us before booking that the carts had to be in 6:30 and we went out 2:40. VERY UNFAIR!!! And no one bothered to tell us that they changed the hole numbers and we could not understand why our Garmin watches were not working. Which greatly changed how we played the holes with no known distance.They could care less about the public players.

Not especially long from the whites, but set largely in and among beautiful forested hillsides, demanding placement in order to score. Five tees make it something for everyone. Splendid in the fall. Meticulously maintained. A great play.

Beautiful facility run by the staff. Course in great condition from tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Holes are beautifully designed complementing the mountain slope on which it is built on. Fairways are moderately narrow so placing tee shots is crucial to avoid big numbers. Not a long course in terms of length but holes do play longer due to altitude changes. Very scenic and picturesque, was fortunate to play on a beautiful afternoon. Staff is super friendly and felt as it was run by a mom and pop shop.

First time in 6 yrs. Can't believe how beautiful the course is - setting, layout, condition especially the greens. Greens must be rolling about 11. Just can't say enough about the whole course cuz it's PERFECT. It's short - just over 6000 yrds but don't let that fool you. As you're playing the course you won't feel the distance being short at all except your shot. I'm definitely going back as much as I can.
