The athlete will enjoy Columbia County Golf Club. Relax in the Clubhouse at the end of the 18th hole of the professional designed golf course. Enjoy good conversation, admire the view or go for a quick swim. The outdoor pool is strategically located to enjoy all the club has to offer.
Tennis Anyone? Hudson nearby offers beautiful, well-lit Tennis Courts or enjoy the Taconic Hills School Tennis and Gym for $1 if you live within the district, a tad more if a guest. If you want to challenge yourself while enhancing your form, hire a pro from the Old Chatham Tennis Club.
The Garden Club is always an opportunity to meet the local as well as the weekend aficionado. Who knew there was such excitement and fulfillment in watching your efforts come to life in your own backyard.
If fishing is more your style, you'll love Claverack Creek or Philmont Reservoir. Both are stocked by New York State and will give you hours of enjoyment.
If your knees are in good shape, you may want to hike at High Falls Conservation featuring waterfall and stream.
The extensive trail system offers terrain that is lightly to highly challenging, many offering spectacular Catskill Mountain Views and Sunsets.
There is also skiing at Catamount Ski Resort about a 15 minute drive east. The Town of Claverack organizes a Winter Snow Sports Program including both snowboarding as well as skiing.
The annual program begins early January and all are made to feel welcome. If you want more challenging trails, visit Jiminy Peak. Both ski areas have a ski shop as well as Club House for relaxing with a hot cocoa or cavorting with your friends by the fire.
