New York Golf Park is the summer location of the Start to Finish Golf Academy and is now a PGA Recognized Facility. Located in Greenport (just South of Claverack on Route 9H), the New York Golf Park is a idyllic countryside setting to enjoy the outdoors, with scenic views of the Catskills Mountains, Empire Stud Horse Farm and Bryant Farms apple orchards. NYGP offers a variety of fun golf related activities for the entire family. The property will be open seasonally from April - October from sun up until sundown and we light up the range during the summer months until 10:30pm.

The learning center officially opened in the spring of 2012 and new owner, Lucas Cohen, PGA Professional has taken drastic steps to improve the existing Driving Range, Miniature Golf Course, Batting Cages, Pro Shop and other facilities located on the property. What was once a run down driving range is now the Start to Finish Golf Academy at the New York Golf Park. (FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/NewYorkGolfPark)
