This is one of my favorite golf courses and I am somewhat of a golf snob as I have played all over the world in the top places including St. Andrews, Pebble Beach and Bandon Dunes. I like that it's a bit quirky and they would never make a similar course designed this way. The reason it's quirky is that... More

We only had time to play the back 9 early in the morning but what a wonderful experience. We decided to enjoy the scenery and not to keep score - just play for the joy of being there. Hit good and bad shots, but will never forget standing on the tee at 18 with the majestic Otesaga in the background.... More

It's just one beautiful view after another, which can be enjoyed while you challenge your golf skills on one of the most spectacular courses in the Northeast. Whether you're a seasoned player or a novice, this course is well worth playing. Where else can you play golf while being serenaded by on old-fashioned carousel at the museum across the street...

I played this course with my 2 sons and they thought this was the highlight of our trip. Leatherstocking is an old time course (1906 I believe) - not tricked up like some of today's courses. Some bunkers but not the deep impossible to get out of kind. beautifully cared for, we golfed at our own pace - no one... More

I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday and the round was terrific. I love historic "old school" courses and Leatherstocking exceeded all of my expectations. Conditions were top notch and play moved quickly. I still like the Old Course at St Andrews better, but this is definitely in my top 10.

I was hoping to have a pleasant day of late October golf. We arrived to find the clubhouse staff more than congenial , as they offered to let us out about 45 minutes prior to our scheduled tee time. There was only one other foursome on the course. We played about ten holes before we were approached by staff and... More

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!!
