Autumn a Perfect Time for Golf and Fun in Ulster County, N.Y.
Ulster County has a wealth of great courses that are approachable for golfers of all abilities and feature friendly staffs and affordable greens fees…so, check it out this fall.

“We have enjoyed gorgeous weather this spring and summer and all 12 of our public and daily-fee golf courses are in tremendous shape,” says Rick Remsnyder, Ulster County Tourism Director.

The county also features a number of premier hotels and bed and breakfast establishments where you can establish a base to enjoy outdoor activities such as hang-gliding, boating, sailing, fishing, rock climbing in addition to golf. Visitors come to this bucolic area of the Catskills for the slow, simple pace of life. There are local museums, woodland paths to walk, a mix of fine restaurants, shopping in the area’s many antique stores and eclectic art galleries and pottery shops.

“Ulster County is a great place to play and stay because of the great variety of golf courses and the outstanding accommodations all over the county, says Remsnyder. “The Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz is an award-winning National Historic Landmark Resort that sits high atop a mountain about five minutes from downtown New Paltz. It features an award-winning spa, a pristine lake, miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. There’s a huge ice skating pavilion, boating, rock climbing, tennis and of course, a picturesque Scottish-style golf course located just outside the gates of the historic hotel.”

 He added, “Many people come to Ulster and love to stay at local B&Bs as a base for their golf ventures. For those who want more traditional accommodations, Kingston has plenty of fine hotels, including the Hampton Inn, the Kingston Courtyard by Marriott, and the Best Western Plus. In Saugerties, where the up and coming Lazy Swan Golf and Country Club Village is drawing rave reviews for its pristine 18-hole layout, many golfers like eating at the golf course’s elegant  Raw Seafood Bistro. It features some of the tastiest seafood dishes and exotic drinks in the region. They also like staying at the lavish Diamond Mills Hotel and Tavern just 10 minutes from Lazy Swan. Nestled above the Esopus Falls, Diamond Mills offers a lodging and culinary experience like no other in the region.”
