If you’re coming to In the MKNG and looking for some additional outdoor activities, the lush greens and pristine fairways of the Sullivan Catskills golf courses will provide the perfect challenge for your handicap, all surrounded by unrivaled scenery to make your day on the course one to remember.
Villa Roma Resort & Conference Center – www.villaroma.com
Golf Digest has called it “A little slice of heaven.” The course has matured into what is now the best fairways and greens in the region. The par 71, 6,514 yard course is a perfect challenge for the expert and the 6,200 to 6,350 yard course is well-matched for beginners, women and juniors. The front nine is very generous off the tee but the greens must be read properly with its undulations. The back nine is longer and more challenging, but rewards solidly struck shots. When you golf here you’ll experience the magnificent views of the countryside.
