Touted by the New York Post as one of the “10 hidden gems two hours from New York”, Copake Country Club is overseen by owner, Jon Urban.

The course at Copake Country Club is now being carefully evaluated and restored to bring back the time tested strategy and unique design features employed by one of golf's renowned designers.
