The treasure of Pinehaven is the golf course. Routed over sandy soil, it winds through white and pitch pines offering its challengers a fair test of golf. Balanced with par 3's and par 5's of varying lengths and par 4's that require strategic lines of play, golfer's will utilize every club in their bag.  The course backs up to the Pine Bush preserve and there are almost no houses visible from anywhere on the course, new members have exclaimed that every round is a peaceful mini-vacation. 

Pinehaven is a private golf club located in Guilderland, New York, located just west of Albany which opened in 1960.  The course’s demanding 6500 yard layout is carved through the pine barrens of the historic pine bush area of Albany County. Over the past several years, the club has undertaken a number of course renovation projects. The master plan, directed by noted course architect Rick Jacobson, made what was already one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in upstate New York even more so.

Pinehaven’s sand base course cushions golfers steps and offers speedy drainage, forcing virtually no course closure due to rainy weather. Pinehaven is usually the first course to open in the Spring and the last to close in the Fall, providing members with many months of fine golf.

Pinehaven’s irrigation system completely waters tees, greens, fairways and rough making all 18 holes as beautiful as they are challenging.

Pinehaven’s experienced PGA professional staff is ready, willing and eager to assist you at all times. Our Pro Shop carries a full line of golf clubs and accessories as well as an extensive selection of apparel for men and women.
