It’s rare to find golf courses in such beautiful and peaceful surroundings, overlooked by trees rather than houses and with picturesque lagoons for some challenging play beside water. Wallkill Golf Course has all of these features plus some fantastic clubhouse facilities, which is what makes it one of the most popular local golf courses in Orange County.
Esteemed landscape architect Steve Esposito designed the Town of Wallkill Golf Course, and it was opened in 1991. Steve aimed to create a New England-style course that perfectly utilized the rolling terrain, and he certainly did a fantastic job! You’ll find wonderful expanses of water, various doglegs and trees surrounding each hole to shut out the urban world and allow you to immerse yourself in a truly relaxing day of golf.
Challenging play for all abilities
Our 18-hole golf course begins with the first two holes played around a large lagoon, before meandering through wooded ridges lined with oak, hemlock and shagbark hickory. Each and every hole gives you a feeling of total isolation, which not only helps avoid distraction from other groups but also makes it the perfect setting for intimate group outings with friends or family.
The final two holes on the course return to the impressive lagoon, but in total, water comes into play in 11 out of the 18 holes for a challenging game. Par for the course is 72, and there are four particularly tough par five holes to really put your skills to the test!
Despite the challenges that our course has to offer, we provide four sets of tees in order to allow both advanced golfers and total beginners to take full advantage of the course and play to their ability levels. The tee boxes play to 6,470 yards, 6,112 yards, 5,389 yards and 5,125 yards.
A course fit for professional golfers
It’s not often that you’ll find golf courses that cater to total beginners and professionals alike, but our course is so popular that we’ve played host to a number of Metropolitan Gold Association Qualifiers, as well as the Orange County Amateur. As an Orange and Sullivan County resident, you’ll also be excited to know that we’ve been annually rated as a four-star winner by Golf Digest’s ‘Places to Play’, an accolade that few other local golf courses can offer!
Since we’re a public club, we aim to welcome the local community at every opportunity, which is why we also host an annual Club Championship that is open to all. To prepare yourself for this event we encourage Orange and Sullivan County residents to purchase their annual membership card for just $25. This entitles you to $5 off non-resident rates during weekdays and $10 off on weekends in order to practice as much as possible and make the most of one of New York’s most beautiful golf courses.
