McCann Memorial

Golf Course

Designed by William F. Mitchell and updated by Stephen Kay, McCann Memorial Golf Course welcomed its first players in 1972 after being constructed with a generous grant from The James J. McCann Charitable Trust. The course is operated by McCann-Caven Golf Courses, Inc., a New York not-for-profit corporation, without any cost to the City or Town of Poughkeepsie. In addition to reasonable greens and cart fees, McCann has a great staff, a well-appointed pro shop, and a driving range. The course has a snack bar, and Christos Restaurant is available for elegant dining and events.
