Not long but very hilly. sharply contoured greens make it fun to play with good or bad scores possible on every hole. The vistas from the 11th and 16th tees are stunning, especially in the fall.

Leatherstocking golf course is one of kind - elevated "blind" greens; sloping fairways; and serious water hazards. I am not a great golfer - but I think playing Leatherstocking is worth the trip. It's incredibly beautiful, seldom crowded, and has gorgeous views. Of the courses...More

This course will give you a full dose of beauty, challenge and drama. It was a tough walk because of the hills. We managed fine but if you are not in good shape you should take a cart. Absolutely gorgeous views of the lake and...More

Picturesque golf golf course that should be as challenging as its beauty. It was a little colder than expected and we should have dresses warmer but all had a great time. The Conference center opened in 1909 and is worth your time to wander through...More
