Monster Golf Club Officially Opens at Resorts World Catskills
Resorts World Catskills (RWC) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony today to mark the opening of the Monster golf club. Executives from Genting, which operates Resorts World Catskills, were joined at the event by Rees Jones, the renowned architect behind the complete redesign of the course, as well as by local elected officials and members from the Catskills community.
Robert DeSalvio, President, Genting Americas East, said,
“Today’s event adds yet another chapter to this storied golf course and shows the world once again what makes the Catskills such a special community. Our vision for Resorts World Catskills always included the reinvigoration and restoration of this golf course, and we are proud to have delivered on this important commitment. Most of all, we are extremely grateful for the unwavering support of so many who helped turn the dream of championship golf in the Catskills into a reality.”
With a $40 million investment from Resorts World Catskills, Rees Jones used holes from both the current Monster golf course and the Old International Course. The Monster golf club, originally designed in 1963 by Joe Finger, was once rated by Golf Digest as one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
Nestled in the Catskill Mountains, the par-72 championship course challenges every player with length, extensive bunkering, and a variety of water hazards. The Monster is renowned for its large undulating greens, which can be both a challenge and an adventure for golfers. Six sets of tee boxes ensure the course is playable for anyone, from the most seasoned pro to the complete novice. Golfers can ride in style in the newest state-of-the-art lithium-ion E-Z-GO golf carts equipped with GPS technology.
The Monster golf club Pro Shop, located inside The Alder, is now open from 6:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. In addition to offering an extensive range of products from top golf brands, it also serves as the check-in location for the Monster golf club, which ensures a seamless experience for hotel guests and visitors alike.
