Located just north of New York City, the Hudson Highlands draws visitors for its culture, scenic views of the Hudson River, and a slower pace of life. Whether you are looking for a weekend retreat or a mid-week getaway, visitors can enjoy kayaking, golf, shopping, museums, historic inns, and world-class dining.
Hit the Links and Enjoy the View
For many, there is no better way to spend the afternoon than a round of golf; however, why not combine your love of the game with breathtaking vistas and for an unforgettable experience? The Garrison Golf Course is an 18-hole, par-72 championship course situated 800 feet above the Hudson River, providing stunning views while you contemplate your next shot. (Check out the 11th hole, which features a panoramic view of West Point). Rolling hills, woodlands, deep ravines, and a diverse topography will challenge any golfer. The Garrison’s welcoming approach to wildlife has also earned it certification in the Audubon International program.
The Garrison Golf Course, which is open to the public on a daily-fee basis from April through November, weather permitting, offers both Shotgun and Tee Time Outings, a fully stocked Pro Shop, a PGA professional on site, a driving range, a practice putting green, and more.
For those interested in memberships, The Garrison is rolling out a number of benefits unique to the region, including two-hour, members-only weekend golf from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 30-day advanced tee time reservations. There are no cart and initiation fees. As a bonus for new members, The Garrison is providing a select number of members a free driver for signing up for full-week memberships, or a complimentary golf bag with all other memberships, excluding junior memberships. All members receive complimentary bag tags.
Some of the fine dining options at Valley at the Garrison
A Taste of the Region
After a day on the golf course, you are bound to be hungry. The Hudson Valley is home to some of the best restaurants around, but for a special meal right at The Garrison, soak up the flavors of the region at a restaurant that specializes in fresh, locally sourced cuisine. Valley, recognized as a premier dining venue in the Hudson Valley since its opening in 2004, not only takes advantage of the bounty of local, independent producers, it also utilizes its onsite garden to provide fresh vegetables and herbs used in the chef’s dishes. Whether you dine on the outdoor terrace or in the cozy dining room, the views are amazing.
For a more casual experience, The Terrace Grill offers equally delicious meals and beautiful scenery.
