I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and ended up eating here every night the food was so good. Chelsea reallllly knows what she's doing. I was there with my parents and girlfriend and all of us agreed there wasn't one "dud" on the menu. Everything was absolutely delicious. Her Chelsea's chicken is a signature dish that lives up to the other reviews on this site and her chocolate cake was delightfully rich but not too sweet you could only take one or two bites before tapping out. She came right out to our table each meal and said hello too. We played golf twice and loved it. The course is hilly and narrow but very fun. I suppose it could be slightly more groomed but overall it was a great experience. The 10th hole boasts an incredible view of the lake. Highly recommended.

Our family loved the theming of this course. It is also relatively flat, which made it easy for our family member in a wheelchair to join in the fun. It's right on the lake and offers free parking for golfers...and spectacular views. Would definitely recommend. Worth the price!

The course is just... OK at best but the views were nice.. odd layout and fairways were loaded with clover and grass that was too long. Best part was the greens at least.

This was our first time golfing in Lake George, after many years doing the boys golf weekend in Lake Placid. I didn't know what to expect and since I was the one that organized all the trips, I was on the hot seat. As I said, they need to post better pictures on their site. The first couple holes were a good warm up and then it turned into some really interesting target golf. It was great. Very pretty spot. A stand out was also the club house, this beautiful, rambling older country house, with a great lunch and libations. The staff were great and we enjoyed playing a second round on the same day. I wouldn't say the course is average, maybe my definition of average is jaded from what I experience in Ottawa, ON.

We played the Top of The World as part of a golf weekend with a group. The course is an old style course in good condition, not too challenging, but fair. The views & price are the amazing aspect of this course. Sitting atop of a small mountain overlooking lake George, you really take it all in. The staff was nice and very accommodating, which all in all, made for a fun day of golf.
