Monster Golf Club officially opens at Resorts World Catskills
Resorts World Catskills hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday 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 architect behind the complete redesign of the course. Local elected officials and members from the Catskills community also attended the event.
With a $40 million investment from Resorts World Catskills, Jones used holes from both the current Monster golf course and the Old International Course.
“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,” said Robert DeSalvio, president of Genting Americas East.
The Monster is renowned for its large, undulating greens. The new course includes six sets of tee boxes to ensure the course is playable for anyone. Golfers can also ride in style in the newest state-of-the-art lithium-ion golf carts equipped with GPS technology.
