Campgaw layout is open year round and plays around but not on the slope. The Mighty Gaw layout that finishes down the ski slope is open late spring to winter.
The best courses in the area (my opinion, with four plus stars on DGCR), all driveable under an hour thirty:
Nockamixon State Park, PA
Tyler State Park, PA
Leonard Park, Mt. Kisco NY
I live in NYC and play these courses on a rotation. Absolutely love them.
The courses in PA are the best and hardest, Nockamixon being the hardest course I've ever played. Cranbury is crowded with people and dogs, but easy to drive to from Brooklyn and a very good course. Leonard Park is a phenomenal short heavily wooded course that is maybe the oldest on the east coast.. It's from 1979 I think, and is still great even though the chains and (dirt) tee pads are old. Also, it's easily accessible off Metro North for those of us who don't have a car.
