Few courses in the country are favored with as lovely a setting as Garrison's. The front nine are close fitting, with restless shifts in terrain. The lively, rolling greens are protected by bunkers and water. The back nine are more open and forgiving, but precise shot making is still rewarded, especially on the 17th hole, where the green is nested among trees, sand, and water.

ZAGAT Review - Rated Excellent
"Located on the Hudson River opposite West Point, this circa-1960s Dick Wilson design offers woodsy, rolling hills with many elevation changes, tough tee shots over deep ravines, side hill lies and challenging greens with lots of false fronts. It's much less crowded than city courses plus a much better value for many, and while some grouse about the claustrophobic facilities, golfer-gourmands praise the great restaurant and 19th hole."
