Client Course Description

Adelaar, a meticulously planned, year round destination resort will feature not only the Resorts World Catskills but also The Monster golf course. Originally Designed in 1963 by Joe Finger, the World Famous golf course, The Monster, was rated by Golf Digest as one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. At 7,650 yards from the “Monster Tees”, this par 72 challenges every player with length, extensive bunkering, and a variety of water hazards.

Designer Notes

A complete renovation using holes from both the current Monster Golf Course and the Old International Course. The renovation will bring all the golf course components up to today’s standards. Multiple tees will make the golf course more playable but at the same time, challenge golfers of all skill levels.
