This stop is worth it just for the views! Truly you feel like you are "On Top of the world".
The golfing is fun as well however I did not do that, my husband did and really enjoyed the greens and the course layout.
We had packed a picnic but I am sure there is a snack bar if not a public restaurant. Just take a drive up there especially in the fall! the foliage is astounding!

Lovely course on top of hill overlooking Lake George. Interesting holes, fair challenges. Course maintenance is appropriate, especially considering the rough winter they experienced. Quickly caught up with a foursome including family of the owners; had a nice short conversation (would have enjoyed a longer chat), nice folks, they let me play through. The reason this isn't a five star review is sloppy support. I rented clubs (for a reasonable $10). Didn't check them carefully, on arriving at first tee saw I had been given three nine irons, missing many others, also some clubs were short clubs for women and unsuable. Assortment of brands, most of them oldish, all of them uncleaned from the time they were used by the previous golfer. Exchanged two of the nine irons for other clubs. Let's say the set was adequate, barely. I usually walk a course, but took a cart so my wife could join. (She wasn't allowed to walk). Cart was dirty, with caked in dirt from years of service. Old, gasoline-powered carts (carts in principle are bad enough, but at least they should be electric). Not a single amenity like a couple of tees in the cart. Pity. Clubs and cart didn't spoil a pleasant morning, but ...

This golf course has great views. We started off golfing as a family only to stop at the third hole due to a thunder storm. My husband returned to play the course and really enjoyed it. Having made other plans for next day, our teens and I missed out on the remaining holes. It was very warm the day my husband played. He enjoyed the refreshment cart that came around with cold drinks. The course had been busy but play was steady and at a good pace.

The course is very nicely laid out and was not crowded. The greens were inconsistent and kind of slow. The course is pretty wide open and was good for us to play. One of our golfers had not played in a long time and she felt comfortable and enjoyed playing.

The course was not crowded when we played which put no pressure on us and made the round very enjoyable. You can see Lake George from the clubhouse and the view is beautiful
