Blackhead Mountain Lodge & Country Club was carefully carved from the scenic terrain of its namesake mountain range, situated in the Northern Catskills. The lush green golf course is tucked away among forested hills brimming with wildlife. Golfers shouldn't be surprised if they are joined by turkey and deer during their game. Bears are even occasionally seen on the golf course. The rolling terrain provides many ups-and-downs throughout, and you'll rarely find a flat lie. The golf course features narrow fairways lined with trees and strategically placed bunkers frame the double-tiered greens. Water hazards come into play on a few holes as well. It is a course that will test your accuracy and force you to strategize your shot placement on every hole. It's a tough test, but the beautiful scenery alone is worth playing a round at Blackhead Mountain.

Not good

It started with the first cart we had didn’t start. Next one had duct tape holding it together. Layout is very difficult and conditions are poor. Would not recommend.

Slow

First time playing. It’s a target golf course. Lots of L shaped holes where you hit an iron into another iron. Greens were akin to a miniature golf hole with crazy slopes that you can’t see on approach shots that throw your ball 20’. I could have lived with that. The 5 hours made it really rough. Played behind guys who had no clue about speed. Not fun.

Interesting course layout

If your looking for a fun day of golf this is the place. Extreme doglegs crazy elevation changes sloped fairways and contoured greens make this course extremely challenging and fun. Sometimes levels the playing field for all golfers. The big bombers tend to feel the rath of the course more than the station to station golfer. Bavarian feel to the bar is a plus. Very friendly and courteous staff.

Great First Experience

As you can tell by the title it was a great time for me at Blackhead. The pro was super friendly along with the rest of the staff and they gave off a great environment. The course was in great shape just not made for any big hitters, but the tight landing areas and small greens made up for it. Would definitely recommend and I will be going back soon.

A Wonderful Layout

Love the course and the people there. It is challenging but fair and always in great shape. We stay over and play two days in a row and we always try to stay over on a night the restaurant is open. It is one of the very best in the Catskills. We will be back next year and would join the club if we lived closer.

conditions dry

The course needs rain. I was informed of that prior to teeing off. Greens were in good shape. If the weather cooperates course will be back to being 4 stars.

Tough Course

This is a shot maker's course. It is very short but froth with hazards. In some cases it is unfair. You have to know where to hit the ball on most of the holes, eg on #11 a shot down the middle will end up in the water. However, the Maasmann family is one of the most courteous and fair in all of the Catskills and the course is clearly the most scenic in the area. If you think you're a hot golfer, come here and let's see what you got. It's a challenge.

Good Shots Are Penalized

First timers are handicapped as many shots are blind. A perfect shot turns out to be a penalty because the fairways are sloped and do not hold many good shots. Overall, fairways and greens were in good shape but greens ran very slow. Course appear old and beat up.
