Great course in the mountains

Friendly starter, was able to bring my 6 year old out with me for 9 holes in the morning. Great views from some spots.

Our group of 24 golfers played yesterday morning. The setting is beautiful, and the majesty of the place is simply stunning. The maintenance of the venue leaves something to be desired. The greens in particular were very slow. We realize this had been a very difficult year for greens around the northeast due to the very cold winter temperatures, but... More

This is one of the oldest golf courses in the country and looks it. Let's start with the course. Fairways were very bumpy and in moderate to poor condition. Greens were very slow and some were virtually unplayable with no green. Cart girl was rarely seen and at one point seemed to be hiding in the woods. We only saw... More

Haven't been there this year, but had to put a date for review to be published. We have played here many times. I agree about cost but golf is ridiculously overpriced. I'm a beginner golfer but my boys play and we have played here either while staying in the area or renting at the Whiteface Inn & Resort (which has... More

I played this course in June this year and I was really disappointed by the condition of the course. Some of the greens had bald patches and 1 of them had no grass at all. I read a lot of good reviews about this course and was excited to play it but my experience was totally opposite. It is way... More

The golfing experience here is great and so is the light lunch afterward. The whole facility is comfortable and the prices were reasonable. Sometimes you pay too much for the setting and not the golf. There was real value here.

Played this golf course solo on a Wednesday morning in 2.5 hours. The course is in terrific shape and enjoyable to play. Will definitely play again next time I am in the area

This golf course was overpriced for what it was. Fairways are very narrow and greens are super slow. The course conditions were above average but not amazing. Save your money and choose another Lake Placid golf course.

I always enjoy a round of golf from time to time and have played at many courses over the past few years. They all have their high points as well as the things that make them less desirable. The Whiteface Golf Club is all high points. As if they are constantly prepared for a photo shoot, everything is in perfect... More

Good course to walk. Some blind fairways as with many mountain courses. Clubhouse is not the most friendly however. Maybe is for the members. Very fair course otherwise!
