Beekman Country Club - Highland/Valley
Beekman Country Club has a stunning location nestled in the foothills of the Berkshires, just as they are rising from the Hudson Valley. The 27-hole hole golf course is divided into three nines that are combined to create three scenic and challenging 18-hole courses. The Highland/Valley combination begins at the clubhouse and gradually climbs over 500 feet. The front nine offers panoramic views stretching from the valley to Stormville Mountain. The Highland nine features the signature hole, the par-3 fourth, of the entire course. It is most beautiful in the springtime when the dogwood trees lining the fairways are in bloom. Although the elevation changes are not as dramatic, the Valley nine is not to be forgotten with one of the country's largest oak trees guarding the sixth hole.

Beekman is always a favorite place of mine to play. If you go late in the afternoons you can always catch a beautiful sunset regardless of which of the three 9s you are playing.
Not as I remembered it!
I was looking forward to my afternoon round as I’ve always liked the layout at Beekman .Unfortunately, due to the tropical storm earlier in the week, there were many trees down and we lost many balls just off the fairway that got caught up in the fallen trees. The greens were extremely choppy and poorly managed. The tee boxes also left a lot to be desired. I won’t be heading up to Beekman anytime soon.
A nice course
Course was good not great, tee boxes were chewed up on a lot of them. The course layout is a little odd with it being 3 separate 9 hole courses. Pace of play was decent about 4 and half hours on a Sunday. The guy inside was rude when asked about separate carts, yet we had a 4 some behind us with their own cart each.
Course could use some tlc. Tee boxes are in terrible shape. Maybe they should move around the tees on the boxes more often. Some greens in ok shape; others need to repaired. Fairways were decent, but roughs are growing wild.
Beekman has always been a very reliable course. Meaning conditions are always good, can usually get a tee time, not expensive and nice layout. Beekman is like you favorite neighborhood restaurant.
Course is in Great Shape- Still offering carts to singles riders if the want!
What a great course
Went out to this beautiful course for the first time today for play 18 and what a great experience. Went out by myself early this morning and it was a great day. Was paired up with three great people and couldn’t have asked for a better day. Only negative is the greens were very very hard to read but other then that, it was one of the nicest golf courses in this area at a great price. Will definitely be back soon!
Good but sharing carts?
Thistle course is great. However they fail to tell you that you have to share a cart with a stranger. They claim to have a cart shortage. They do put a shower curtain-like partition which makes it just weird. I will only play this during the Covid situation if I book with friends so I don’t have to be forced to ride with a stranger.
First time playing this course (played Valley & Taconic 9s) was quite enjoyable. It was helpful to play with a regular in order to give you the lines for some of the tee shots that are blind. Took a cart since playing the course for the first time but I plan on walking next time since the elevation changes are minimal. Taconic nine was more challenging since several tee shots required more precise placement to set you up for the approach to the green. And speaking of greens, they are small in size & they rolled true.
