Rockland Lake State Park in Congers
has two state courses, an 18-hole par 3, driving range, practice bunker area and an extremely challenging and picturesque 18-hole professional course. This par 72 has a great layout and presents quite a challenge to golfers. Currently the state is in the process of re-doing bunkers and has done work on cart paths each year. Additional projects are in the works.
I really enjoy playing this course and feel it is one of the most underrated courses in Rockland County; it has potential, in time, to be one of the best.
Playing at the 18-hole championship area is like a walk or ride through the woods. I like an early tee time to enjoy the peace and serenity of the surroundings.
