The grounds include a pool, fitness center, tennis and pickle ball courts, a banquet facility as well as indoor and patio dinning, all in a relaxed and elegant environment.

 

Designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. this par 72 layout measures 6,877 yards from the championship tees and has proven to be a challenge even to the most proficient of golfers. Rich in history Wiltwyck dates back to 1933 and moved to it’s present location” in 1954.

 

Formed in April 1933, the golf club began with a nine-hole course off Hurley Avenue. Twenty years later, construction of the NYS Thruway threatened to slice that course in half, but the resourceful Wiltwyck club took that as an opportunity to purchase the Steward Farm on Steward Lane in the Town of Ulster. In 1955, an 18-hole, par-72 course was unveiled at the new locale, designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones.
