    Shephard Hills Golf Club

    Shephard Hills was originally part of the estate of Helen Gould Shepard, daughter of railroad magnate Jay Gould, a Roxbury native son. The bent-grass 9 hole course was designed by one of the country's leading Golf Course architects with construction beginning in 1916. Upon completion of the course in 1918, Shephard Hills was recognized as one of the finest estate courses in the region - similar to those in the Hudson Valley. The course included a man made lake and a stone cottage (presently used as the clubhouse) that was used as a residence for the Shepard's summer visitors. Yardage: 6,254. Ratings: 71.2 Slope: 120 Par: 72. Today, Shephard Hills remains one of the regions most challenging golf courses enhanced by its historic charm and hometown hospitality.

  • Stamford Golf Club

    The northern Catskill Mountains provide the setting for the venerable Stamford Golf Club. Historic Mt. Utsayantha dominates the surrounding heights, with the trails of the adjacent Scotch Valley Ski Area visible in the distance. The views are sweeping and spectacular as the beauty of the countryside unfolds in all its glory with each season. The course is appealing to both experts and high handicappers alike. Rolling terrain and undulating greens add to the challenge that is uniquely Stamford. The greens are a challenge for even the best golfers. Especially appealing, there is usually no waiting time to tee off, even on weekends and holidays, and completing a round in 3 1/2 to 4 hours is the norm. The clubhouse also affords a well equipped pro shop, locker rooms and showers. We have a driving range and practice putting green to help hone your game. Private golf lessons are available by appointment. A stop at the clubhouse for a cocktail, sandwich, or dinner provides the opportunity to relax and enjoy the magnificent view from the porch while watching players approach the amphitheater 18th green directly below. Stamford Golf Club is a semi-private club open to the public. We have special pricing packages for events as well as foursomes.
