Detailed description
Falkirk Golf Club, previously named Central Valley Golf Club, is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located in Central Valley, New York.

The golf course at Falkirk Golf Club first opened for play in 1922. The course was designed by Hal C. Purdy.

The Falkirk Golf Club golf course plays to 5,644 yards. Par for the course is 71. The course rating is 67.7 and the slope rating is 116. Falkirk is a good challenge with narrow fairways and constantly changing elevations.

The old Central Valley Golf Club name was gone as soon as local developer Wayne Corts and Rockland businessman Barry Fixler took over in 2009. Falkirk is the name of the adjacent estate, and a small town in Scotland, the home of golf.

"It's a pretty golf course as it is, but it needed some tender loving care that had been missing over the last couple of years," said Ken Vrana, Falkirk general manager. "It was kept up, but not enhanced."

Enhancement hardly covers the magnitude of improvements in the planning. Even at 5,600 yards, Falkirk already is challenging with its undulating greens, tight fairways, uneven lies and changes in elevation. Plans are to extend it to championship length to around 7,000 yards, and the infrastructure is being upgraded now to accomodate future growth.
