The 2 Best Golf Courses in the Catskills

Championship-level golf, picturesque views, resort amenities - what more could you want?

Sunny Hill Resort is home to two of the best golf courses in the Catskills: Thunderhart Golf Course, a championship-level course with a Parkland-style back nine and unique design, and Sunny Hill’s golf course, a resort-style course with wide fairways and breathtaking views. The two courses have earned the designation of being one of New York’s Top Rated Family Golf Resorts.

Both golf courses are suited for experienced golfers and beginners. Thunderhart features an exciting yet challenging design with several ponds and sand trap obstacles, while Sunny Hill’s golf course contains more par 3’s and offers a more casual golf experience.

We offer competitive golf membership rates in addition to daily rates on both courses. Call (518) 634-7698 with any questions about our rates, courses or golf lessons.
