The Executive Golf Course at Rockland Lake State Park may not be as well-known as the Championship Course at the same park, but it is worth checking out on your next trip to the Palisades Region of New York. This par-3 golf course is located 25 miles north of New York City so it's just a short drive for a fun round for beginning golfers, juniors and even low handicappers who are looking to change things up for the day.

The holes range from around 100 yards to over 200 yards long with lots of elevation changes throughout the 18-hole course. Be prepared for a hilly round of golf which might deter some golfers from walking the course or pulling their own bags. Fairways and greens are well-maintained on some holes, but patchy and overgrown on others. There are a few places where the conditions are bad enough to affect your score, even after a good shot, which is frustrating.

The shortest hole on the course is the 108-yard 17th hole; the longest hole is 212 yards long, the final hole on the relatively short front nine.

Everybody tees off from the same artificial mats – there is just one set of tees for golfers of all abilities. Greens tend to run a little on the slow side but beware of missing the greens and fairways. Plenty of trees line each hole so a good score can go through the roof with just a few bad swings.

Play a round of golf for under $25 depending on the day and time of year, but the cost to rent a cart can be a bit pricey. Again, the hilliness of the course is enough for most golfers to gladly pay the extra cart fees.

The views alone are worth the drive to this municipal golf course located along the Hudson River and it's common to see wildlife like deer and fox along the course, as well as the occasional bald eagle or falcon flying overhead.

The Rockland Lake State Park Executive Golf Course is a budget-friendly choice for the beginning golfer or anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing round out in nature.

I just played this course after not playing it for about 20 years and they have made it much nicer than I remember it being. Now you have to take into account it's a par3 so you can't expect pebble beach. The greens were in excellent shape when I played. There were some rough spots on some of the fairways, but if you hit the green on your tee shot your going to have a great afternoon. The tee boxes were nice, not great, but nice. For $19 if your in the area during the week it's a great deal. I'll be going back again. #15 and #16 are by far the hardest holes as they slope left to right and if you hit it dead center you roll into the rough on the right side stay left (trust me I went right and got 6's on each hole that pretty much ruined a great score). Enjoy it I did!

This is great for children and for people who just want to have fun, but I do not like the maintenance, there are rocks and things everywhere. The mats where you tee off arent in the best condition. The grounds crew are constantly running around the place while you are hitting. Again this is for kids and people trying to have fun not for good golfers trying to improve their game, it can get really annoying.

This is a great Par 3. Any beginner can really learn a good game of golf if they start here, but good players won't be bored. Employees are nice and call you in at just the right time before a storm really breaks out! I really enjoy the company of nature as I walk the course and play a round.
