Challenging approach shots

The views on the back nine are great of the Catskill mountains. Course wasn't very long, it's a esort course which I didn't realize. But to make up for the shortness the elevated greens and small greens make it a challenge for the competitive golfer to make par. Staff was very receptive and friendly.

Great views, but...

I played Sunny Hill as a practice round. For that purpose, it was fine. However, greens were "fuzzy" and needed to be cut and rolled. Also, tee boxes were a bit chewed (although late in season I will give them a pass).

Great beginners course.

Sunny hill was an interesting golf course, staff was unaware that you could make a tee time there stating that "they don't make tee times" however after a few minutes we were let out on the course. The course itself is extremely easy, especially the front nine being a par 30. The back nine was a bit harder but still overall pretty easy. It was hard to distinguish fairways from rough and the greens were very bumpy. It was enjoyable though for the price, if you are a beginner it would be great but for myself it was far too easy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun short course with nice scenery.

Tee boxes need repair

Most of the tee boxes need repair. A lot of kids on the course and on a couple occasions I'm sure they took my ball when I sliced. Very frustrating...

Fun course in a beautiful setting

An older, short course. Although it's short, it's also very difficult. The greens are very small, most of them elevated and almost impossible to hit from the fairway. Good golfers will be able to reach several of the par 4's from the tee, but not likely hold the green. Chip and pitch shots are all very challenging. Requires a lot of touch around the greens. Only 1 par 5 and it is easily reachable in 2 shots. The par 3's are very difficult, with par being a good score on almost any of them. The course is nestled in the Catskill mountain range with beautiful views of the surrounding area. It's not a course where ball striking is a premium. A good score relies on your ability to get up & down from around the greens.
