Chuck a Throw @ Tuckahoe
Pros: 18 holes with good variety of line shaping holes throughout. Open throws across fields,Well mowed reasonable fairways of perfect grass to nice baskets. Navigation is well marked and easy to follow. Nice State Park. A few more open holes like #2. Most holes weave or wind through flat fairways with danger that will penalize to the right or left. Truly rewards staying on the fairway to score well. Mostly a midrange or fairway driver course. Not crowded at all. There is an array of shots required here: hyzers, anhyzers, S-turns, overhands, straight, tunnels, blind and open air.
Cons: Flat, meaning no elevation whatsoever. Most of the course is made up of well mowed 20 foot wide fairways with severe unforgiving shule to the right and left of the fairways. With hole lengths between 160-400ft its not always reasonable to stay out of the shule. Tees are natural and appear to be muddy at times. Despite all of the above mentioned variety most of the holes seem similiar to one another with just subtle different lines to be utilized to score par. Zero fun or wow factor here. I was trying to just avoid the shule and this kept me from really trying to challenge myself with funner throws. I kept hoping for something special here but nothing ever materialized. It's too punishing for beginners and too blah for more experienced players.
Other Thoughts: Theres some really cool areas in the park. Real shuleless woods and nice grass fields, particularly next to the lake. I would have had more fun playing safari with my big lids and if I wasn't alone I would have done this with a partner. Please don't equate State Park with quality course in this case....This one is a stinker.
