Welcome to The Links at Union Vale

Come play the course that Golfweek.com named to their  Top 15 New York Courses to Play list two years in a row (2014 & 2015).

The Links at Union Vale is, as one reviewer described it, “18 holes of Ireland, faithfully recreated in Dutchess County.”  Our championship course rides lightly on top of a rolling landscape, with sweeping views of the lush Hudson Valley countryside.  It is the fulfillment of the dream held by the golfers, over 500 members of the Irish Golf Association and 16 Gaelic golfing societies in the New York City area, who built it. The Links, constructed on a nearly treeless site with sweeping views of the Hudson Hills and Catskill Mountains, is a beautiful golf course to play.

Well-known New York course architects, Stephen Kay and Doug Smith, designed and built the course. They let the shape of the land —with its swells and troughs —influence the shape of the holes. It has the links land character — fast turf, the opportunity to play bump and run, lethal rough and the shaggy browed bunkering reminiscent of the Old Country. The result is a challenging course with four sets of tees that stretches from 5,198 yards to nearly 7000 yards from the tips.

The Irish saying at our front gate means "one hundred thousand welcomes," and frames every experience at The Links at Union Vale. From golf, to outings, to weddings and banquets, we look forward to welcoming you to The Links at Union Vale.
