From Mohonk: "Mohonk’s 117-year-old course is a shot-maker’s paradise. Like other early courses in America designed at the turn of the 19th century, ours has a strong Scottish influence. It was first laid out by Mother Nature and Albert Smiley (Mohonk’s founder), along with two house guests, E.E. Schermerhorn and Mr. James Talcott. The original layout in 1897 was 1600 yards. In 1911, Mr. Robert Pryde, a Scotsman working in Yale, Connecticut, was the
man for golf courses. He lengthened the course and added Scottish charm. Pryde brought the length to 2350 yards. (The current length is 2707). Mr. Pryde, before immigrating to America, worked at St. Andrews. He was called upon to help design some of the first courses in the northeast. Mohonk’s golf course features undulating fairways that require you hit to flat landing areas we call bowls. The course protects itself with blind tee shots and uneven lies. Mohonk’s 19th century design is able to battle 21st century equipment—a testament to Mr. Pryde’s lasting influence.
"Mohonk offers golf in its purest form. This historic landmark golf course was fashioned with classic late-19th-century features and a Scottish architectural influence. Each hole is a delight in itself, featuring four different height cuts of grass that add definition and challenge. Framed by spectacular views of surrounding valleys, our course reflects the ambience of Mohonk.
"Envision a course fashioned after St. Andrews, set against a majestic 2,200-acre backdrop. An enchanting Victorian castle towering seven stories above the pristine “lake in the sky”, welcomes you after a day on the course. Escape to our distinctive old-world New York State golf course, and you’ll see why we have received distinctive praise. Day visitors are also welcome."
