Decent course to just shoot nine holes. Dont bother to bring your driver, course is VERY short. It was in nice shape but the greens were terribly slow.

Nice views of the college. Dirt cheap if you are Vassar affiliated. Like $1.50 cheap. A fairly easy course. A ten handicapper could legitimately shoot par.

For the value, I really like this course. As a fairly new golfer, it is easy enough for a beginner (who doesn't hit long) but still challenging enough for someone more experienced. Mr. Myers is a wonderful host, who has given me pointers when I just asked. No sales pitch for lessons. There are not a lot of extras, but for this price and this type of course, they are just right.

Not a bad golf course

This golf course isn't too bad. For the price ($9 for 9 holes) it seems a little pricey to me. The fairways were not in very good shape, and the tees look like they will be in decent shape once they finish working on them. If I was associated with the college and played for free or at a good discount, I'd play there often. But for the same price, I can play at other municipal courses that are in better shape. If your looking for just a 9 hole course, I'd recommend College Hill. If your looking for a small golf course on a college campus, this is your course.

What a deal!

One of the best values in the Hudson Valley, Vassar Golf Course is a great place to have available for those golfers who want to be able to play on a regular basis but can’t afford the country club fees. At $9 a round (walking), how can you beat that deal? While in past years this course could be a bit frustrating due to foot high scrub grass in the rough (hit the fairway or kiss your ball goodbye), under the direction of Rhett Myers this course has dramatically improved over the last season, well maintained and landscaped. A short course, all par 3’s and 4’s, and mostly level, this course won’t present much of a challenge to some of the better golfers out there, but is extremely enjoyable for the average golfer. Located on the campus of Vassar College in downtown Poughkeepsie, it is easy to get to and well located for residents of the central/northern Dutchess County area. A nice level course, but with some challenging bunkers and doglegs coming into play, this course is ideal for building on and improving your game. Facilities also include a small pro shop and a practice green, and all of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A must play for the general golfer.
