Although it's only an hour from New York City, the Garrison's secluded location nestled in the Hudson Highlands makes it feel much further. Perched 800 feet above the Hudson River, the 18-hole Garrison golf course offers panoramic views of the river and the surrounding mountains. As beautiful as the rolling hills are, they provide a challenging topography that will keep you from being distracted by the scenery. The rolling greens are flanked with bunkers and water. In addition to the uphill, downhill, and side hill lies, you can expect a few tough carries over deep ravines and stands of mature oaks along the fairways. The elevation changes are especially dramatic on the front nine while the back nine is a bit more open and forgiving, but you'll still need accuracy throughout the entire golf course.

Play this beauty before it's gone

Highly recommend. The course was in super condition. Firm sloping fairways, greens and blind tees shots make it a challenge. Staff I met and dealt with were all very friendly and accommodating. Absolutely stunning views and old stone structures make this a visual gem. The only negative is the pace of play. The couple times I played this week had back ups on several holes and dragged along from time to time. There are no rangers on the course to speed up the slower lagging groups. Even the presence of someone would probably help.
Enjoy this beauty before it oses it's doors.

Not worth the money or time!!!

Was told the course is closing for good in November and looks like it. Greens had hundreds of divots and fairways and rough were horrible shape. Not worth playing.

Too bad it's the last year Open

Great course, unfortunately have learned that this is the last year open. Tragic waste of one of the more beautiful courses in the tri-state.

Fun course

Outstanding views of Hudson and surrounding mountains. Greens fast and didn’t hold some quality approach shots. Fairways in great shape. Course a little overgrown and narrow in places. Too bad it’s closing this year.

Garrison GEM

I can't believe this course in closing. A VERY SAD statement. Front nine has so many great holes and the back nine is suppose to be easier which it is. The views are beautiful and course was in good shape for the all rain we've had. PLAY IT WHILE YOIU STILL CAN!

Why bother

It’s my understanding that the golf course is closing down after this season. The rough along the fairways isn’t well taken care of, and the greens are in sad shape. Also, I went into the pro shop to buy Titleist Tru Feel balls…..they want 52.00 for box of a dozen balls that you can buy in any other pro shop or online for 22.00. The views of the Hudson River, and West Point are spectacular, and the course is challenging. But for 95.00 a round, you’re better off playing at a municipal course that’s in better shape.
