A taste of Ireland tucked into the Hudson Valley, this championship, semi-private course rivals the links-style courses of the Irish.
The Links at Union Vale was named best daily fee course by Northeast Golf Magazine in 2008, 2009 and 2010. It has hosted USGA Amateur Qualifiers.
Designed with distinct features of water, potbunkers, natural hazards and bent and fescue grasses, The Links at Union Vale offers a true test for golfers of all skill levels. Architect Steven Kay, the renowned New York designer, took 200 acres of nearly treeless cattle farmland and turned into a layout of great beauty. The course’s wide, scenic vistas are truly impressive. Large, double-tiered greens and sloping fairways require that golfers focus on shotmaking rather than the course’s many photographic features. Four sets of tees offer very different looks. The course calls for smart tactics, particularly on the front nine, which is high risk/high reward.
The course is always in exemplary condition; the customer service is likewise outstanding. After your round, you’ll want to continue to enjoy that taste of Ireland from The Bar & Grill with a Guinness on tap poured slowly, in traditional fashion.
