  Mohonk Golf Course, at Mohonk Mountain House Resort, is located at 1000 Mountain Rest Road, New Paltz, NY 12561 in Ulster County.

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 go-to 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. Public Golf Course - Mohonk Golf Course | Ulster  website and more . . .
