Delaware County has over ten professional gold courses from which to choose. Check out the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce website for a complete listing. Three of the best courses are within minutes from The Roxbury.
Shephard Hills is a 9-hole course just a stone’s throw from The Roxbury. You could literally walk to the course if you’re in an energetic mood. Many holes are situated on slopes with breathtaking views of the Catskills. Built by the railroad magnate Gould family in the early 1900’s, this course is our favorite in the area. Check out the stone clubhouse.
Hanah boasts an 18-hole championship golf course with a 3-star rating as proclaimed by Golf Digest. Just 7 miles from The Roxbury, spend the day golfing and then have a drink at the clubhouse bar. It has one of the most breathtaking views in the area.
Delhi is about a 45-minute drive from The Roxbury, but if you’re a golfing enthusiast, it’s well worth the drive. It’s been rated one of the finest 18-hole public courses in New York’s Southern Tier. And if you like a classic early 1960’s design, which we do, then this is about as classic as they come.
