We’re starting to see a number of special deals from local daily-fee courses looking to capture the club golfers who might have been priced out of membership.
Hudson Hills is among the facilities making a pitch.
Westchester County’s high-end course is offering annual passes, which include unlimited greens fees and the opportunity to schedule a tee time 14 days in advance. The seasonal program also includes access to membership events like tournaments and social mixers, and pro shop discounts.
The unlimited pass is $3,350 for county residents and $3,950 for non-residents. The weekday pass is $2,250 for county residents and $2,950 for non-residents. The twilight pass allows access after 1 p.m. and is $1,950 for county residents and $2,350 for non-residents. The senior pass for those 60-and-up allows play on weekdays and is $1,950 for county residents and $2,350 for non-residents.
Now, you need to play a lot of golf to cash in on these deals. A county pass holder pays $55 a round on weekdays and $85 on weekends.You would have to play 30 weekday rounds and 20 weekend rounds to break even.
I saw the course a couple of weeks ago. There are some rough spots here and there, but overall, Billy Casper Golf does take good care of the facility and the improvements have been well received.

“We’re confident area golfers will find our annual pass program to be of unbeatable value,” said Cale Avila, General Manager of Hudson Hills. “We’re proud of the quality turf, overall course conditions and for creating excellent golf experiences from parking lot to the 18th green.”
