Some awesome holes. Good challenge from the green tees. But the 7th hole is a joke. And the 15th. Two of the crappiest par 5's in the country.

Nice county course but you have to be in the fairway since the rough is unforgiving. You also don’t want to be long on the greens as there’s a slope into the rough on a lot of holes. Super friendly staff.

This was probably my 5th or 6th time playing hudson hills so i had an idea of what i was getting myself into. I knew it was a very hard course that was in good condition and had reasonable pace of play. Turns out only the hard part was still accurate. The course was in terrible condition. The fairways were wet and beat up and the greens were very dry and kind of bumpy. i actually could chalk this up to all the wet weather they had so they get a slight pass. The round took 5.5 hours long and we had a group of average golfers in front of us playing from the back tees which have a rating of 73.7 ( HARD). whats worse is that they were still waiting even though they were spending half their day looking for balls. The rangers were basically non existent until i went into the pro shop after nine and complained. They cleared it up for 2 holes and then we went back to waiting on every single shot. This is on YOU hudson hills to keep people moving and get people to play under 5 hours.

they also made the course even harder on the par 5 15th by letting the native grass grow right in the middle of the fairway basically blocking you from hitting driver off the tee and forcing you to lay up off the tee. the hole is already 560 yards up hill and now i have to hit 3 iron off the tee?? stupid. Honestly i can deal with how hard the front nine is if maybe there was somewhere to warm up but NOPE. They got rid of their little warm up net so you now you have to go out cold and play a 440 yard par 4 with marsh on the left, a 530 yard par 5 with a fairway the width of a small green, an uphill par 3 with a narrow green and then a 450 yard par 4 with OB left and hazard right. no wonder people play 3 hour front nines. they spend most of the time searching for their balls.

i will not be back here until i see glowing reviews about how these issues were fixed

Paying full price is not worth the money given the poor shape of the tee boxes and bunkers. It doesnt look like the course has maintained the bunkers in the past 9 months. Greens were aerated what appeared to be a few weeks ago, but were rolling fairly well and nearly back to normal which was good.

Lastly, I have never seen a course have poison ivy in the rough, not in the woods or brush, but feet from the fairway.

I am a Westchester County resident and I’ve been playing Hudson’s Hills for years. Generally I love the course but I have to say the conditions today were disappointing. I understand there has been a lot of rain but the green conditions and green speeds were unacceptable for the price point. The conditions usually justify the price but sad to say today was very poor. Hoping things improve sooner rather than later or at least charge less money then.

I'm not a great golfer. But I've gotten a lot better over the past 5 years and Hudson Hills is part of the reason why. It's a no joke course with several blind tee shots and you really need to play with someone who knows where to hit it. But it's also a very creative layout that rewards a good straight shot. 7th and 15th par 5's appear impossible off the tee box with giant hazards in play on long drives, but can easily be reached in regulation with a 5w, 4i, pw. Complainers are just mad they can't hit a driver on every tee. A few easy par 3's over water. Great 4th hole par 4 downhill leg right...very reachable. Boxes get chewed up by the public golf crowd, but most of the course is in beautiful shape pending torrential rain. Don't hate. Learn the layout. For a county owned track, this is as good as you're getting east of the Hudson.

Been playing this place for years. Used to be a really great course. Played today for the 4th time this year and the place was a horror show. Fairways completely ripped up. Thick muddy tire tracks and big ripped up dirt patches rampant on the fairways. Greens were awful. Didn’t roll true. Dark patches and big bumps all over each green. They let all the rough grow out. Was just as tough as Black. They let this place go completely. Like they didn’t do any work at all to this course. It’s a shame because this course has a great layout. $85 for residents is highway robbery for the way this place is kept up. Spend $10-20 more and go to a nicer course.

Extremely wet course on a sunny COLD DAY. Got there 40min before tee time. Nobody there and told to wait until my tee time. So those who booked golfnow hot deals. Don’t expect they let you go out 5 minutes early even though there is not a soul out there. When time to play. At least 10 to 12 fairway is soaking wet n not playable. Wtf!

There are a bunch of beautiful holes on this course. Unfortunately the first few times you play it you can’t enjoy them. This course needs proper management. Don’t play it without someone who knows where to aim. Knowing the course is worth at least 8 stokes. If you have someone who knows the Course you’ll have a great time .

One of the worst draining issues ever on a course. They don’t tell you that the sand traps have over 1ft of water in them. The fairways were water logged and in terrible condition. Maybe a discount or a notice. Stay away!!
