A quick drive through the abandoned hotel, check-in to the run down clubhouse and then be prepared for one of the best golf courses you'll ever play. The course features 18 great holes with incredible views/scenery and a great combination of challenge and playability. Everyone in our group of 9 has played great courses around the world and every one of us walked away admiring this course!

Driving up to the course, I was concerned as to what golfing conditions we would experience. The clubhouse was in bad shape and the food was terrible. Once on the course, I was amazed at how great the course was. The design was fantastic and The conditions were such that it seemed like no one had ever played it before. I look forward to playing this course again and again.

Just tremendous. I'd wanted to play here for years after a friend had spoken of it reverentially.
Before going, I looked into the amazing history of the place - a major Catskills resort - of the type memorialized in the film Dirty Dancing.
By the time we made it up there, it's safe to say I'd built up a pretty high level of excitement / anticipation. I could easily have been disappointed.
I just loved it. The course is very special with many high caliber holes. Picking a few highlights is quite difficult because you could really say something about every hole.
The 4th is a great par 5 - dog leg right with water all the way down the left and a pond in front of the green.
The back side might be the best of the 2 nines. The 12th (played from the back tees) is a very challenging par 4. You really need to get a bit of a draw going round the corner to get in position to even have a chance to reach the green. I felt like I played the hole well and I took a 6...
...and that's followed by the majestic 13th - Long, accurate tee shot required or else...Reaching the island green in 2 is not an option - so think you're way through the 2nd shot to get in position for a wedge.
There are other highlights throughout the course and I feel I'm not doing it justice by not going on a bit...
But as you enjoy the challenge of the course, take time to really take in the surroundings - apart from the scenic beauty, there's something else - maybe an energy from the resort's glory days that somehow lives on in the air.
The course is in tremendous shape. Green staff do a great job and the decay of the resort buildings has been meticulously kept away from the course.

Customer Service:
Step into the clubhouse - maybe the last of the resort buildings still in use ? - Many of the old resort signs are here - and speak about a bygone era - "Welcome NBC Sportsworld and Barrel Jumpers"...Also have a chat with the barman - he's been here a while and will wax lyrical about the good old days.
