Anyone play the "Monster" course in the NY Catskills ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I did a quick search for it here. I didn't see anything. It's a course at a popular resort from the 50s and 60s. They have a second course called the International that is decent and privileges at a third course called the Grossinger. The Grossinger was a pretty nice course as well. I think it's not very well visited these days.

Anyway the Monster's claim to fame is length. It's a long course that requires you to hit a lot of long approach shots. I played it on two different occasions and had a nice time. Wonder how it holds up to modern distances however.

It had a 250 uphill par 3 that would still require a 3-wood from me today. Surrounded by bunkers, iirc.

Or anyone play anything else with that kind of punishing length?

I played it a few times about 20 years ago when I was in college. Don't remember anything specific about it.
