I played the course on August 18, 2014. The course was in great shape and the greens ran very true. The setting is magnificent. Even more important was the way in which my friend and I were treated. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and the service was excellent. The pace of play was very good... More

Played this course on a day with light rain. It had rained a few days earlier and the course was in great shape. No standing water. Everything had been cut. Had workers on the course raking traps. Really enjoyed the course. Loved the view from the 16th tee. Downhill, traps on left and pond on right. Lake view in the... More

WOW...what a gem of a golf course in Cooperstown, NY. Its hilly and very verdant. The fairways were so beautifully manicured that my wife thought we were in a fancy private club. I think there are three or four signature holes that you will go home remembering. I loved the 17th...a 200 yard shot over water-which I didn't make!!

Tried their "flash golf" where you can play five holes in an hour after 4 p.m. The course was beautiful and the pro shop offered free rental clubs. I will return.

Course isn't that difficult but the views can't be beat from tons of holes. Enjoyable visit. Carts only when busy but you don't want to walk this hilly course.

I don't know any golfer who would be disappointed in this course. It is situated along Otsego Lake which provides for some challenging holes & spectacular views! Greens fees seemed reasonable with other courses of this caliber, too.

We were visiting Cooperstown for the Baseball HOF and While planning the trip I discovered Leatherstocking as a New York top rated golf course. What a fun course to play. The course is not long but every hole is designed differently and requires using every club you have. They have long par 5s and a short par 3 that is... More

Just golfed there on Sunday and it was so beautiful and just a great course. It rained on the first hole and everyone was so nice that they refunded my payment and let us come back later when the weather changed to warm and sunny. They only charged me for the nine holes we were able to play.

This is a great course for the true golfer! Very challenging layout, with outstanding views of Otsego Lake and Cooperstown. Greens are in great shape, hill holes are a lot of fun. Nice patio area for lunch or a drink after your round.
