Located just 90 miles from New York City, today’s feature course, Mohonk Golf Course, is a Scottish-inspired masterpiece that is known throughout the Empire State for its beautiful conditions and challenging course layout. One of the oldest courses in the United States (built in 1897), Mohonk offers players of all skill levels a timeless test that is sure to become a favorite round for all who come to play.
As you make your way through each of the unique nine holes that make up the Mohonk layout, prepare for a challenge unlike any other you’ve ever faced. Uneven lies are, quite literally, par for the course at Mohonk, and blind tee shots keep things interesting off the tee box. Accuracy with your driver is paramount to shooting a good score, as fairways are tight and lengthy, especially on the higher handicap holes. Do your best to stay in the fairways and first cuts, as the rough and natural foliage throughout are thick and unforgiving.
Pro tip: Golfers beware – Mohonk’s toughest hole, the par-4 third, comes into play during your round very early on. Playing 380 yards from the back tees, this lengthy par-4 sports a mature tree-lined fairway, a bowl-shaped landing area, and a tight undulated green that rolls as one of the toughest on the course. Make it past number three in one piece and best the remaining challenges, and Mohonk has been known to give up a low score on the day.
