Vassar Golf Course is a nine-hole public golf course situated on the beautiful Vassar College campus in Dutchess County, New York. Established in 1930, the course offers a scenic 2,500 yard layout with beautiful mature trees, character and charm. All players are welcome on a first come, first serve basis. Vassar is a very enjoyable walking course; however, golf carts are available. An average round of golf requires only two hours. Vassar welcomes golfers of all levels, including juniors, seniors and families. The course is a fair challenge for beginner to intermediate golfers.
Vassar golf course has more bite than bark. At first glance, the course is not intimidating, but several dogleg angles and cleverly placed trees are to be respected enough to command your attention. While the holes play relatively short, typical of a classic layout, iron shots were demanding. Without a par-5 hole, the nine-hole course plays to a par-34. But, look on the bright side, that means you will shoot a lower score.
