West Point Golf Course
- Front Nine
Markers all measured to center of green.
100 YARDS: Bright Red, 150 YARDS: White, 200 YARDS: Blue
From an elevated tee you look down over the first creek (not normally in play) to an open fairway. Second transverse creek not in play if first drive was good! Elevated green slopes back to front and is protected by bunkers on front.
Hitting up a narrow fairway to a slightly elevated green. Woods on both sides, big drop off on left. Green slopes right to left and is bunkered at the front left.
Hitting from an elevated tee, transverse creek (not normally in play). Both the fairway and the green slope right to left. Green protected by bunkers on left and right front.
Blind tee shot to a slight dog leg left, downhill fairway that slopes right to left. Trouble in the woods to right, open adjacent fairway to left. Because you will probably have a downhill lie, the transverse creek will come into play, more so, if your drive was short. Difficult to get to green in two. Be smart lay it up! Green slightly elevated from directly behind creek. Bunkered front left and right slopes rear to front.
All up hill, woods to right- trouble, Small fairway bunker on right. Green slightly elevated, bunkered front left and right and slopes left to right.
All carry uphill to a green that slopes left to right and is bunkered on both sides.
This is the The Big One! Blind tee shot, fairway slopes left to right. Woods left and woods/OB on right. Thick rough. Water definitely comes into play unless you had a monster tee shot. Pond is 20 yards from the green, 80 yards carry and 50 yards in front of the 150 yard marker. 2d lay up shot is the smart move! Green is bunkered front left and right and slopes back left to front right.
Fairway narrowed by creek and pond on left and woods/OB on right. Need very good tee shot to take out transverse creek fronting the green out of play. Green bunkered right front slopes rear left to front right.
All carry to an elevated green bunkered across front. Need to come in very high to hold green which slopes front left to rear right.

- Back Nine
Markers all measured to center of green.
100 YARDS: Bright Red, 150 YARDS: White, 200 YARDS: Blue
A dog-leg right, short hole- hit a good tee shot to left side of fairway, which takes out the first transverse creek and should eliminate the second one from play. Green elevated and SHALLOW (front to rear) and it is bunkered in the front and slopes toward the hole from the front and rear.
This is a tough one and the handicap doesn't give a true read! POND in front almost all the way to the green. It is all carry. Bunker front left, trouble woods to the rear and right. Green slopes rear to front. Drop area on right side of pond.
Narrow tree-lined chute from tee. Need straight tee shot as creek and pond on left as well as a creek/OB on the right. Second shot (if drive was good) uphill to elevated green that slopes rear to front.
All carry, bunker left, woods rear and right. Large green slopes rear right to front left.
Pond short left from elevated tee (not normally in play). Beautiful view of fairway that slopes left to right on a dog-leg left to a downhill green. Woods left and right are trouble. Green slopes rear to front.
Elevated tee to fairway bunkered on left, woods to right. Beautiful view! Second shot to slightly elevated green, bunkered front and slopes rear to front. After putting out, back over the bridge to the 16th tee.
Downhill par 3 hole is pretty straight forward. However due to the severe steep grade it is recommended to play this hole as 20 yards less than the stated yardage. Otherwise you may be re-teeing as you just hit over the stone wall behind the green.
Big dogleg left, uphill and fairway slopes severely right to left, over the ridge downhill, then back up to an elevated green, bunkered to the front and the green slopes rear right to front left.
Elevated tee to fairway that slopes left to right. If drive is short, a blind second shot and the transverse creek will be in play. Green bunkered front left and slopes front to rear. Need high shot to hold the green.

- Testimonials & Accolades
Golf Advisor ranks golf course based on feedback primarily from the golf now data base. Based on this feedback we were ranked #17 in New York State.
Brett DeRoache - April 14, 2017 "This course is absolutely amazing! The fairways were lush and the greens were like glass. From the moment you arrive to check in to the time you are returning your cart the experience is top notch. Will definitely play here for years to come."
Bruce Brandsema - October 9, 2016 "This is a wonderful golf course that will test all of your skills. Elevated tees, slope fairways, elevated greens, and a couple that drop over 100 feet are some of the challenges that keep me going back. While it's a little strange to start on the 5th hole, hopefully this will change when they re-build the clubhouse. But for now, the Ski Lodge serves as a good backup. West Point Golf Course is a true diamond in the rough!!"
Tim Fink - July 18, 2016 "A well kept and challenging course that keeps you on your toes all the time. The mountainous fareways and elevated tees/greens require you to bring your best game ever to this course. The staff (from the starter to the check-in staff) were very friendly and obviously proud of their course. Great course to play."
Tam Alix - December 2, 2015 "It's a course with very panoramic view and challenging greens."
- Maintenance Matters
Let It Grow
WEST POINT GOLF COURSE MAINTENANCE MATTERS Posted by Steve Whipple– Golf Course Superintendent May 26, 2017
The golf course has experienced a large amount of rain over the past several weeks resulting in many wet areas our golfers and our maintenance equipment must avoid. It seems like just as we begin to dry out another substantial rain system moves in. Through all of this rain however, we have still been able to mow and maintain the golf course to a relatively high degree. This is in thanks to over a decade of drainage projects that have taken place to alleviate ground water problems that we were stricken with. In times of heavy rain and wet weather patterns, this investment in water removal has really paid dividends in the ability to mow and play the course without resulting in excessive damage.
With all the rain and warmer weather this time of year brings we have seen a sharp increase in turf growth, especially in the rough which now requires more frequent mowing to remain playable. Our crew has done a remarkable job keeping up with the increased mowing demand each day and I am very proud of them for their hard work and diligence with this.
Golfers may notice a change around some of our streams and ponds this year. We are establishing some vegetative buffers or “no mow” areas around these water bodies. This is a new trend that we are seeing in the golf industry due primarily in an effort to maximize protection of water from any runoff potential as well as creating better habitats for wildlife that exist near water. These areas, which previously would be mowed and trimmed right to the waters edge will now become naturalized within the water hazard stakes and plant material will be allowed to grow up giving it the look of a non-maintained area. This will be different aesthetically for golfers but is in the best in-terest in doing our part to be environmentally sensitive.
The diesel spill clean-up that occurred on route 9W is still underway and much progress has been made. The clean-up contractor still has diesel collection bibs in the stream of #10 as a precaution but I anticipate they will be removed within the next few weeks as clean-up efforts complete.
With a reduction in our crew size we have been focused on grass cutting and had to adjust or schedule for the installation of our annual plants through the course. We are on task to complete this project over the next 2 weeks for our customers to en-joy. Our gardener Al who always does a great job with this is anxious to begin and so am I.
We are looking forward to some drier and warmer weather as we enter the sum-mer season and hope you all can make it out very soon to play the course. The condi-tions are great and drinks are cold. Take care and have some fun out there!
Question of the Week
Q: Should I fertilize my lawn now?
A: With all the rain we have had which results in higher turf growth it would be wise to hold off on any applications of nitrogen until we move away from the excessive rainfall pattern we have seen and the turf begins to lean out. A good time to fertilize would be in a few weeks from now as we near the summer season using a summer fertil-izer product that can give a controlled nitrogen release through July and August. This will feed the plant without too much growth and disease potential.
Upcoming Scheduled Tasks
- Annual plant installation next 2 weeks
- Fairway verticutting and de-thatching
- Pond fountain installation
- Irrigation repair continuation
- New staff on-boarding over next month

Nestled in the Hudson Valley just north of the Bear Mountain Bridge, the West Point Golf Course offers an unforgettable golf experience. The West Point Golf Course is an 18-hole challenge on a mountain layout, with well maintained terrain normally seen only at private clubs or high-end courses. Don't let the length fool you this Robert Trent Jones design course is a great challenge for all levels of golf.
One takes a walk through history at the West Point Golf Course, starting with Hole #1 the tee marker reflects upon the American Revolution finishing with #17 and #18 reflecting upon Iraq and Afghanistan. The course is home of Army Golf, the Academy's division one golf team practices and holds tournaments. A favorite is the Army Navy Match - GO ARMY.
After your round enjoy a choice of over 50 beers, great burgers, wraps and other fabulous freshly made food.
*Please note: we may close the Club House in the event we have a private event or outing. We suggest calling before hand to avoid an adverse experience.
