Founded in 1897, Dutchess is one of the very oldest golf clubs in the United States. Generations of Poughkeepsie families have played golf and socialized at our historic club. Even President Franklin D. Roosevelt was once an esteemed member of Dutchess Golf Club.

Originally a 9-hole course, it was first designed by a member of the famous Park family of St. Andrews, Scotland. Later improvements lead to the development of the 18-hole course and what is now our enchanting core golf course experience.

Today, after a few difficult years resulting from the economic downturn, Dutchess is under new ownership and is healthier than ever. We have made dramatic improvements to the clubhouse, golf course and driving range. We even have an entirely new membership program, one that you might not be able to resist.

Our eye is on our bicentennial in 2097. By then, many more generations from our wonderful community will have called Dutchess Golf Club part of their family too.
