Warwick

Looking to head up to Warwick and just wondering if anyone has suggestions on other courses that are must-plays in the surrounding area. I have heard that there is not much near Warwick so I am not opposed to driving a couple of hours in any direction near there. Also, is there any new developments with Dan Doyle's course right across the street?

Just keep playing Warwick over and over, with 4 configurations plus a 2nd course Wolfe Woods you shouldn't leave. Don't even consider Buzzy's which is nearby.

^Agreed. The Warwick course from the Blues is championship caliber stuff. And the short pins looked fun too.

The woods course was fun, with lots of water shots in play. That course has multiple options to play as well.

If you really wanted to drive somewhere, Joralemon just south of Albany was fun. (maybe a 1.5 hour drive)

Doyle's place across the street is still a work in progress. I think he's got maybe 10 playable holes.

Not much point in going to Buzzy's--it's a fun course for weeknight leagues, but not a destination course by any means.

Campgaw isn't too far from Warwick, and the county just mowed, so the long layouts are playable, but unless you have someone to guide you you won't really do well finding each hole. The shorter layout has new tee signs and is pretty simple to follow.

Just so you know, there's an A-Tier for Pros only at Warwick this weekend, so I hope you're not coming up this week because the course will be closed and we'll be directing people to play Wolfe Woods.

Thanks for the advice so far, I have some more homework to do. I wasn't planning on going this weekend, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks. What about FDR? Hyzer Creek? This might end up being a two to three day trip.

FDR is a worthy stop, the front nine is more wooded than the back. I liked it a lot!

Mt Kisco a must play? No way. I can't confirm this but read recently 2 baskets are missing.

Cranbury in Norwalk, CT isn't too far (70 miles) from Warwick if you take 287/TappanZee bridge...do not take the GW bridge and 95 to get there!

I have family in Rockland County (I think that is the county) and in the Bronx/Yonkers area, so that was why I was asking. I am definitely thinking of hitting Cranbury Park.

Warwick flies under the radar. One of the best courses I have ever played and no one talks about it.
