"Playing at A Construction Site"

The golf course should be closed while they're doing construction on the underground sprinklers. There are workmen on most holes, muddy patches, torn up ground and broken cart path pavements. The noise from the construction machines is distracting. What I resented most was that when I went to the clubhouse to pay, no one told me about the terrible conditions. I won't be back until they finish all the construction work. The wet conditions made cart path only on EVERY hole mandatory.

All par 3's, but very challenging. It is not an easy walk as it is very hilly. Tee boxes are mats that are surrounded by waist high, brick walls, very unusual. Yardages range from 110 to 212, and I would say they are not accurate. The greens have subtle breaks and are a bit on the slow side. You must hit the greens or be close, because the rest of the course is in terrible condition. It is certainly unique!

A flaw with this website is when there are 2 courses in the same location, the reviews do not necessarily depict the correct course.

First i have to say the greens were in very good shape but running very slow.

The lack of grass on some fairways and complete bare spots(dirt) on most made for a tough round.

The fairway on 18 was dirt,rocks and looked like something you would see on a playground.

The driving range was old and run down as was the club house.

The cart paths were old broken up blacktop which were dangerous in places. This course is like the rest of NYS.

First time playing Rockland Lake in many years and while I don't recall the conditions last time I played, I was extremely disappointed by the course conditions. Quite frankly, the fairways are awful! They're are large brown patches on every hole. Crab grass is also common. Some holes have actual holes. Watch your step! They are also not cut, making it hard to distinguish where the fairway ends and the rough starts. Just brutal. It has been a dry summer, but come on. Other area public courses are much better. I get that it's a NYS Park, but it should be better. The greens are generally very good. Now focus on fairways.

1st Hole, 3 wood right to left shot, easy par 4 hole if kept in fairway.
2nd Hole Par 4, another right to left shot, uphill 2nd shot to green.
3rd Hole, Par 5 2nd shot for eagle or birdie if your drive lands before a small diagonal creek on the dogleg right. OB is to the right of tee boxes.
4th Hole #1 Handicap Par 4. Hit it straight and long on drive and 2nd shot. A 5 feels like a par.
5th Hole Par 4. Keep it in the fairway easy Par 4.
6th Hole Long Par 3 but doable.
7th Hole Par 5. Uphill 3rd shot to Blind Green
8th Hole Par 4. Downhill then Uphill Dogleg right.
9th Hole Par 3. Keep it right and shot will bounce left onto the green.
10th Hole Par 4. Downhill then Uphill to the Green
11th Hole Par 5. Right to Dogleg left hole unless you can bang it over the trees on the left. Green on a plateau.
12th Hole Par 3. Straight Straight Straight Long Downhill shot, trees hang over left and right side.
13th Hole Par 4 Long Dogleg left.
14th Hole Par 5. Keep it in the fairway Birdie Hole.

The course isn't the worst thing about this place. It's the people that work their. Especially the pro's if you can call them that. They are rude and have horrible attitudes, they treat you like they are better than you. The course is in the worst condition I have seen it in years. I thought they got some grant money or something. They don't even cut holes in the practice greens anymore. This could actually be a good course if maybe they fired the so called pro's that work their.
