Beekman Country Club has a stunning location nestled in the foothills of the Berkshires, just as they are rising from the Hudson Valley. The 27-hole hole golf course is divided into three nines that are combined to create three scenic and challenging 18-hole courses. The Highland/Valley combination begins at the clubhouse and gradually climbs over 500 feet. The front nine offers panoramic views stretching from the valley to Stormville Mountain. The Highland nine features the signature hole, the par-3 fourth, of the entire course. It is most beautiful in the springtime when the dogwood trees lining the fairways are in bloom. Although the elevation changes are not as dramatic, the Valley nine is not to be forgotten with one of the country's largest oak trees guarding the sixth hole.

All the area Golf courses are saturated, they have been like this since October and it's only getting worse.

Beekman had a strict cart path only policy when we played. With the soaking conditions, the course played at a good rate. The starter was managing the players going out on 1 and which nine the players coming in for their second nine, he was doing a really good job.

Even with the wet conditions we enjoyed our round.

Course was decent. We've had a lot of rain lately, so it was cart path's only. It was wet in spots, but to be expected. I always enjoy playing golf at Beekman. Nice views of the mountains too.

I’m a local, been playing Beekman for years. Pace of play was always a little slow on the weekends but since their new “membership” deal which they ran for months, the place is PACKED even mid week. Played 18, mid week, at 11am and played the first 9 in 2h45, back 9 wasn’t much better at 2h30...other than that the course was in decent shape, staff is great.

Our round went off at scheduled T Time. Staff is friendly and helpful. Course conditions were good. Only complaint is that this course has 27 holes and signage to direct you on each of the courses could be improved. A nice touch after your round is that you can drive the cart onto the parking lot and unload your clubs.

Beekman is our "local course and we (my wife and I) play a lot, usually 9 holes. Beekman has three nine hole layouts. It is not long but challenging for beginning and intermediate golfers. We have played Beekman many times over three years and it is is better condition every year, though this year the rain has been a challenge. The staff are quite good and friendly. The prices are fair but they face the usual financial pressures confronting all public courses thus they schedule outings when they can. if you book during or just before or after an outing, play and pace can be affected but if you call they will let you know when the outings are scheduled and it gives you a chance to work around it. When we have brought guests to Beekman they are always impressed.

We arrived at the course only to find that they had a major outing scheduled to go out on two of the three 9 hole tracts at our exact teetime. The remaining nine holes were severely waterlogged and cartpath only. And, it was badly over crowded and we had to wait on each hole. If we knew these were the conditions we would’ve opted to play another course. This information should be available on GolfNow before a reservation is made.

The course is a good course, but after some powerful rains 2 days before, the course was in rough shape. Bunkers were flooded, the course was very wet, so no roll. The greens were a mess. Every shot left a huge ball mark and some players are slobs about fixing theirs. They hadn't mowed, so they were shaggy, slow and the ball bounced and moved unpredictably. Definitely added strokes.

My round was on Friday August 31 at 10:35 am. They started us with a son and his 15 year old son who only golfed 2-3 times. On the 3rd hole we decided to move ahead because there seemed to be nobody ahead of us for the first 3 holes (never saw a cart). We went to next hole and there were 4 approaching the green and 2 teeing off at the next hole. So - we had to wait. The first 9 took 2 1/2 hours! We then had to wait 15 minutes to tee off for the back nine. All in all - 5 1/2 hours for the round. The course was in good shape - but just don’t go on a Friday! Also - at halfway house it took 8 minutes to get a hot dog and the snacks were awful with little variety - peanut butter crackers, some chips (potato or pretzels - small bag) or small bag of nuts. Why? Most golfers are hungry after nine - only lowly snacks or hot dog. Weird!
