The Course

Championship Golf Course and a World-Class
Private Country Club Experience

West Hills Country Club features an eighteen-hole championship golf course that carries tremendous history and significance in the Hudson Valley as well as a 9-hole par 3 golf course. The club was originally opened as “Orange County Golf Club” in 1899 halfway between Middletown and Goshen in an area known as Midway Park. One of the most interesting features at West Hills is the history of the suspension bridge connecting holes on either side of the Wallkill River. The bridge was designed and constructed by John A. Roebling’s Sons and Company (designers of the Brooklyn Bridge) in 1926 and continues to serve the club well to this day.

One of the most enduring qualities of West Hills is that the course is both challenging and playable for all levels of golfer. West Hills features four sets of tees ranging from 6,813 yards to 5,583 yards. The Wallkill River meanders through the golf course and makes its presence known on our feature hole #11. This hole is played from an elevated tee and the Wallkill River is ever present on the right side for the entire length of the hole. There are few holes in the Hudson Valley which can match the challenge and beauty of #11.

West Hills features 19 brand new bent grass greens which were installed in 2011. The putting surfaces are as pure as you can find in the area. West Hills has opened a brand new 9-hole, Par 3 golf course named the “River Course.”  The River Course has been rated for both Men and Ladies, playing to an overall par of 27. Designed with all levels of golfers in mind, beginners and experienced alike will enjoy the choice of playing a shorter course while building confidence in their overall game. Families will be able to enjoy their outing without the stresses of faster groups behind them. Kids will now have the opportunity to learn the game the way it was meant to be learned, from shorter shots to longer drives. The River Course can accommodate 3 different sets of tees and ranges from 76 yards to its longest hole of 240 yards, giving each player the challenge they are looking for.

The Club has recently added new tees to accommodate the extra distance new golf technology has brought to the game. We have also added tees for the newer golfer and those golfers who are already challenged by the length and difficulty of the course. The championship course at West Hills Country Club is truly something to behold.
