Greystone is a tough track yet stunning to look at all at the same time!
I'm going to flat out tell you that Greystone is a very humbling course. As soon as your ball reaches any of the well-manicured greens you can tell getting down in two putts will be a good score. Tough pin placements are found on almost any spot on a green depending on where your approach lands.
Fairways are lush and maintained top notch just like the greens. With four tee decks you can get some amazing views of the hole you're playing as each tee can have a significant elevation change. Bring a camera!
Almost every hole can be considered a signature hole by one golfer or another. My two favourites were hole #5, an elevated par 4 that showed me no mercy. This was followed by a picturesque par 3 over a pond that you'll need to stick one near the pin. A bunker over the green can catch a ball and is probably the safest bet if you don't contact the putting surface.
Hole #9 and #18 share a large scary green. While hole #9 is a par 5 of average difficulty, the closer is a short par 4 that requires a well-placed layup before attaching the green over a full body of water. If you can carry a drive 300 yards from the tee then be my guest at reaching this great finishing hole in one.
The clubhouse at Greystone is one of the nicest designs I've ever seen, both inside and out. It is positioned perfectly for viewing the closing holes for the front and back nine.
There is no question that Greystone deserves its ranking as a top public golf course in New York State and is most definitely a "Recommended Play" by Golf in Canada.
