At the Concord Resort and Golf Club, in Kiamesha Lake, NY, you’ll find an opportunity to play The Monster Course, a golf experience designed to challenge the heavy hitters of the game! At 7650 yards from the back championship tees, it would help if you were a big bruiser of a man capable of developing very fast clubhead speed, in order to reach the greens in regulation.
