Keep coming back because it’s a comfortable course

Enjoy the course. Kept very well for a public course.
It’s just hard enough to be challenging. Kept in good condition. Wish there was more sand in the bunkers,
But overall a nice course. I come up from Manhattan to play here a lot. Friendly place

Saxon Woods: A Fine Public Course

The public courses in Westchester County are a great value for County residents, and centrally-located in White Plains, Saxon Woods is probably the most popular. At $26.00 for a Senior "walking" the course, the value is unbeatable. While not as finely manicured as a private country club course, Saxon Woods is very well-maintained. It has a pleasing variety of lay-outs and is challenging for both "duffers' and more experienced players.

Although it can get quite crowded on weekends, the pace of play is reasonable, particularly during the week (Monday-Friday). Since the Covid epidemic, water barrels/dispensers are no longer available (apparently for public health reasons. Although Covid is still an issue, the worst appears to be over, and I do wish the County would reassess this issue.

Best Public Course in Westchester

From tee box to green, this is the best maintained course of the Westchester County run public courses. Length that stresses this senior golfer's score, I need to be on all aspects of my game to break 100 here. But i still enjoy playing here.

Pace of play

Nice little track but (and I’m aware it was a Saturday afternoon in the summer) the pace of play was the worst I’ve ever experienced. Saw the ranger a few times but they didn’t even try to do anything (not much they can do cause everyone was backed up and I understand courses aren’t gonna book less tee times to help but this was ridiculous) I quit after 9 because it was getting dark and there was no point in playing another couple holes before they kicked us off.
Also, the starter was clearly not in a good mood and when I checked in 25 mins early he said he’d give me a “holler” when I was up because they were running behind. I told him I’d be on the practice putting green RIGHT in front of him but he never said anything then when I checked with him 15 mins after my scheduled tee time he said my group already teed off. Thanks for the “holler” 🤦🏻‍♂️

Love this course

Love this course however the pace of play was very slow do to two foursomes in front of us who were not very good spent too much time looking for lost balls. The round took over 5 hours. NO ranger to be found anywhere. Other than that the course layout is challenging for mid handicap golfer. especially holes 13 and 14.
