This scenic 18-hole course offers a panoramic view of the beautiful Hudson River and majestic Catskill Mountains from the Ogden Mills & Ruth Livingston Mills Memorial State Park. It is one of the oldest golf courses in the country. Built as a private 9-hole course in the 1890s, it was an amenity to the estates of the Dinsmore, Hoyt and Mills families. The land was donated by Helen Hull. The original course, which is now the south nine, was expanded to 18 holes in 1962.

The expansive park includes the Staatsburgh State Historic Site. Scenic hiking trails and old carriage roads border the river. At nearby Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park, there is a marina with transient and seasonal dockage, a kayak operator and an environmental center, as well as camping and cabin facilities.

Senior and Junior rates are available on weekdays except holidays. Junior rates are always available.
