West Point sits within the beautiful Lower Hudson Valley, just a stone’s throw away from lush vineyards and wineries. Package options include a scenic 20-minute ride to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, where provided coupon books match shoppers with discounts from high-end fashion retailers. Guests can also visit Palaia Vineyards to sample an assortment of wines, soundtracked by live entertainment ranging from musical performances to dramatic readings of cereal ingredients. Just north of West Point in New Windsor, the Storm King Art Center displays a collection of sculptures dating back to 1945 in a colorful woodland area spanning over 500 acres. Some of the valley's best views are found at the Boscobel mansion, an early 19th-century neoclassical estate that sits on a bluff perched above the Hudson River.
Designed by course architect Dick Wilson, Garrison Golf Club’s 18-hole course covers the tree-lined hills, valleys, and ravines of the Hudson Highlands as golfers drink in sweeping views from 800 feet above the Hudson River. Without disturbing the native birds and wildlife, the course artfully integrates the natural terrain into a challenging layout, featuring multiple shots that must clear deep chasms and rolling fairways that create tricky hill lies and test golf carts’ vulnerability to motion sickness. Stone walls and mature oaks and hemlocks add to the stately scenery as players grapple with testy hazards, such as those encountered at the par three 17th hole, where tee shots must find a putting surface buttressed by sprawling trees, sand traps, and a stream.
An Audubon International–certified course, Garrison Golf Club’s environmentally friendly efforts include a 2-acre organic farm that sprouts heirloom tomatoes, nine kinds of lettuce, and other greens incorporated into dishes at Valley and Terrace Grill, the club’s onsite restaurants. Guests may also opt to wind down at World’s End Bar, a cozy spot ideal for sipping cocktails or interrogating fellow players about the veracity of their scorecards.
