Westchester’s best 18 holes test your golf savvy, skills, and strategy

The green is about the size of Kansas at Hudson National’s hole #16
Hudson National Golf Club #16
249 Yards, Par 3
The scenery beyond the hole makes it easy to lose track of your ball in flight after teeing off on this spectacular par three. The Hudson River gleams in the distance with Stony Point marking the far shore while your ball sails, hopefully, through the sky to fall on the green a long, long way down the hill. Actually, the green isn’t impossible to find — it’s about the size of Kansas — but it does take a solid shot to get there. Sprawling bunkers await those who under-estimate the distance to the green or (more likely) overestimate their own prowess. If you miss the green and somehow avoid the bunkers, ball-devouring, knee-high rough is your punishment, so wait until after your shot comes to Earth to savor the view.
Next tee: St. Andrew’s Country Club #9
