Mohansic Golf Course in Yorktown Heights, New York, is one of six eighteen-hole courses operated by the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation. The course, which dates back to 1926 but has since been partially renovated, is considered by many locals to be the toughest of the six tracks. It s well cared for and ranks right up with the best public golf experiences you can have in Westchester County. The pleasing parkland setting is utterly free of course-side housing. Mohansic presents a classic challenge with its mix of straightaway and dogleg holes and its elevation changes. Tom Winton laid out the playing field on rolling hills and moderately steep terrain. Mature trees line the picturesque but frequently tight playing corridors. Thick rough can present problems, but it also saves many an errant shot from winding up in the trees. Mohansic Golf Course features numerous uphill, downhill and sidehill holes. Players can expect numerous challenging lies and stances throughout the round. Adding to the difficulty, Mohansic Golf Course is a par 70 that plays long. There are only three teeing options 5,456 yards from the forward markers, 6,285 from the middle tees, and 6,558 yards from the back. The course features just two par 5s and they play back to back. At 592 yards from the tips, the 9th is by far the longest test of the day, while the 10th offers scoring opportunities as it tops out at 495 yards. Only one hole (the 7th) features a water hazard. The toughest test of the round is the long dogleg-left par-4 4th, which culminates at a well-bunkered, elevated green that falls off at the edges. For the amount of play Mohansic Golf Course entertains, conditions are quite impressive. Practice facilities include a driving range, a chipping area with a practice bunker, and a putting green. The clubhouse features a pro shop and a nice grill and lounge. There s also a halfway house at the turn. Tee times tend to go fast at Mohansic Golf Course, with good reason. A day at this Westchester County muni is a highly satisfying experience that provides excellent value.
