Although it's only an hour from New York City, the Garrison's secluded location nestled in the Hudson Highlands makes it feel much further. Perched 800 feet above the Hudson River, the 18-hole Garrison golf course offers panoramic views of the river and the surrounding mountains. As beautiful as the rolling hills are, they provide a challenging topography that will keep you from being distracted by the scenery. The rolling greens are flanked with bunkers and water. In addition to the uphill, downhill, and side hill lies, you can expect a few tough carries over deep ravines and stands of mature oaks along the fairways. The elevation changes are especially dramatic on the front nine while the back nine is a bit more open and forgiving, but you'll still need accuracy throughout the entire golf course.

The front nine are quite tight, blind shots and a challenge but fair. It opens in the back to get your confidence back before you leave. Views of the river are off the chart. Biggest complaint was no coffee at 8am, no cart person when it’s 80 degrees and and no food available for lunch. For $85 you’d expect to be able to buy a Gatorade during the round and a hot dog after. Used to be a great venue.

Course was very wet after two days of rain but still held up well. Besides the greens being a little chewed up in some spots, which is basically unavoidable as a public course, it was in great shape.

considering all of the rain we have had this year, the course is in great shape.

I find this to be one of the most challenging course in this area.

Still so much fun!

It seems every time I play here the course is always so wet. There were many clumps of wet grass on the fairways becuse they were just being cut at 12:30. I just hope I can make it out again once it’s actually dry and playable. Thhis review is No reflection on the grounds keeper or the staff.

This course layout is fantastic, but it looks like there’s some drainage problems, rained two days before our tee time and some of the grass was still wet, not sure if it was from that or he sprinkler system. None the less it plays very well! Greens aren’t that fast, but it is very difficult to read them!

I’ve played Garrison a few times, and the layout is very good. There is a nice variety of holes on the entire golf course. The front nine is much harder than the back nine. The front nine is tighter and more hilly. The back nine is a little more flatter and more wide. I have never seen a starter on the first tee, so it’s basically a free for all when you arrive at the course. The conditions of the course are usually pretty good. The greens aren’t lightning fast, the fairways are overall in good shape, and the bunkers, although a tad thin on sand, it’s actually sand and not dirt. It’s a very fun course and it’s one of my favorite to play.

Compared to recent years, the course was in very good shape with greens in excellent condition. Great views of the Hudson from some of the elevated tees. Overall good value for money and staff was friendly. Threatening weather (but no rain) left the course open but also meant bar and snack area closed. There are some tight driving holes, but the course is fair. Could use better directional signage on several holes with divergent paths. If I hadn't played here before I would have been lost on some holes. Overall good experience.
