Mahopac Golf & Beach Club History

The tradition began in 1893 when a short 6-hole course, designed by Thomas Bendelow, was built on the east shore of Lake Mahopac. Five years later, Mahopac Golf Club was formed. The course moved to the north shore of the Lake in 1900 as a 9-hole, 2,730 yard layout. In 1913 it was extended to a full 18-hole track designed by the famed Devereux Emmet, who is also credited with the design of Garden City Golf Club and Congressional Country Club.

Today, the 6,523 yard course enjoys the distinction of offering a new challenge with every round where a premium is placed on golf course management and shot-making abilities. The course has earned the reputation for having some of the purest putting surfaces in the area. Well bunkered greens coupled with the varying hole designs require a range of shots inviting players to use every club in the bag throughout the 18 holes. In 2006, the club renovated the 5,000 square foot lakefront property and became the only club in the area to boast a private beach as part of its offerings.

As generations come and go, the Mahopac Golf and Beach Club has remained a staple of the Hudson Valley. Now in its 115th year, Mahopac Golf and Beach Club is still going strong. Our members carry the long-lived tradition of this golf course each and every time they play and they will continue in its historic traditions. Golf at Mahopac Golf and Beach Club is more than a game, it’s a passion.

What people say about us

On September 29, 2018 Charles and I had our wedding at the club. We wanted to let the board know what a great job Gilbert Baeriswil, Alex our chief, Greg, Suzy and the serving staff did. Everything was wonderful, from the ceremony outside (which Gilbert made sure was perfect) to the cocktail hour and the food, which was perfect...

We were so incredibly happy to have had our wedding at Mahopac Golf and Beach Club. It was the perfect venue, we got married underneath the tree, had the cocktail reception on the terrace, and the reception in the ballroom. We couldn't have been happier with the service, Gilbert the manager truly went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of. He was extremely professional and kind and made sure everything was perfect the day of. The ceremony space was beautiful and the reception was the perfect size and layout. Everyone kept saying it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. I was so impressed with the wait staff, they were professional, polite, and made sure we had everything we needed. We couldn't be happier with this venue and highly recommend it.

I've been fortunate to play on some of the best courses in the world, but I can say without a doubt Mahopac Golf Club would rate very high on my lists of favorites.  Lightning fast greens that are well trapped make it a great test for even the most accomplished golfer.  New membership dues, categories for individual and families make it a must for those who love golf.
