Being a resident of the Hudson Valley, I’m frequent this course a lot. Baird Park has improved a lot over the years. The lay out is superb. This past Sunday was without a doubt the worst I’ve seen the pace of play. I assume there was an increase in players because the DC amateur was being played at a neighboring course. However they should have prepared for this. Very disappointed

Kudo's to the maintenance staff at this straightforward track. Fun layout with lots of variety. Pace of play is great, with consistent greens and fairways.

Moderate number of hazards and many rolling sloping fairways. Follow the Fairways they are like highways winding, dipping, rising and turning on several holes. Very long par threes on several holes (one has you going across a large lilly pond with a crooked dog leg left to an elevated green. Note: unbelievably they have no handicap flags, or so I was told ...and it's a State Park!!
