Legendary architect Rees Jones crafted a masterful layout that is a throwback to the golden era of golf course design. The variety of the natural setting combined with careful attention to the subtle details give each hole an individual identity and provide a unique experience. The rolling, 500-acre site is a mixture of open and wooded holes that wind around natural creeks, sweeping meadows, and ponds. From every hole, there are spectacular views of both the Berkshire and Catskill Mountains.

Rees Jones offers a classical approach to golf course architecture and decades of experience evident through his design and renovation of several of the world's most memorable and historic layouts. Commonly known as "The Open Doctor", his redesigns have hosted numerous professional golf tournaments including 7 U.S. Opens, 6 PGA Championships, 4 Ryder Cups, 2 Walker Cups, and 1 Presidents Cup.
" It's one of those sites that's almost ideal. When I saw it I knew it was perfect. Olde Kinderhook is a pure golf course and it's truly a championship golf course."
On the gentle rolling canvas of Olde Kinderhook, Rees Jones has painted a glorious picture. Impeccable grooming, strategic bunkering, and handsome pockets of naturalized fescue further define the scene. From the Championship tees, the Par 72 Championship layout stretches 7,249 yards, providing the low handicap golfer with a rigorous test of golf. However, with six sets of tees players of all abilities have a chance at Par. While the slope and course rating tell a story that Olde Kinderhook will not be conquered easily, the course is eminently fair and enjoyable.
