Hudson National Golf Club

Croton On Hudson, NY Private

Overview

Hudson National rests on dramatic bluffs high over the Hudson River valley, a breathtaking location that, back in the 1920s, had been the site of the ill-fated Hessian Hills Country Club. (The fireplace and part of the foundation of its clubhouse still exists near the fourth green.) Fazio paid little attention to the old routing, however, dynamiting more than 130,000 cubic feet of rock to fit his design into the rocky terrain. Greens are blazing fast, the primary rough is wispy fescue and bunkers are deep and numerous. Hudson National is closed for the remainder of 2023 as the Fazio team returns to do a complete remodeling—moving hundreds of bunkers, regrassing and recontouring greens, in addition to some other alterations.
