Owner description: 45 Holes of Championship Golf - Links Course, Mountain Course, & Pristine 9. The Lake Placid Club Links course was designed in 1909 by the renowned Scottish architect Seymour Dunn. Dunn remained true to his origins, and the Links course represents Scottish Links style golf at its best with bunker-laden fairways, native fescue, and large undulating greens. The Lake Placid Club Mountain course was laid out in 1910 by Alexander H. Findlay who immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland in the early 1880's and became one of the pioneers of golf in America. In 1931 the course was remodeled by Alister MacKenzie, designer of Augusta National – the home of "The Masters". With smaller greens and more tree-lined fairways, this course begs for the straight shot. The engaging design takes full advantage of the scenic vistas and will appeal to players of all levels. It is quite simply the essence of "mountain golf". Pristine 9 Executive Course - A little slice of golf heaven with 7 par 3's and 2 par 4's. The par threes range from 90 to 200 yards in length and have small undulating greens while the par 4's are reachable at 260 and 270 yards, eagles are rare, and birdies fly away with frequent three putts. Moose are known to frequent the Pristine 9 as they love to go for a dip on Hole 7 where the tee shot requires a carry over a pond. Typical round takes about an hour and a half, so it makes for family fun or a quick getaway for lunch on the run. Spectacular Weddings and Special Events: Overlooking the Historic Lake Placid Club Golf Courses, the Golf House offers the most beautiful view of the High Peaks in the Adirondacks. With an open-beamed ceiling, a massive stone fireplace & magnificent antler chandeliers, your Lake Placid special event at our Golf House is the epitome of an Adirondack experience. If you prefer the outdoors the covered pavilion attached to the Golf House gives you the best of both worlds...outdoor feeling while protected from the elements.

The layout of the course was excellent for the links course. Beautiful views. Greens were in good shape. There were no directions to the next tee - watch out for that. Had to look for next tee. The lengths were good for multiple tee boxes. Good yardage markers.

The courses are a little ragged but the staff do their best and are a pleasure to deal with. Great greens and the best part is the difference between playing shorter hillier mountain and longer flatter links. Great layouts.

The greens are in really great shape, and the Mountain course is not extremely challenging. The carts are gas, but spacious. There are a few challenging holes. I thought $75 to play 18 holes with a cart was a bit much, although there are reduced rates after noon.

Thank you very much for reviewing your recent golf outing at the historic Lake Placid Club Golf Courses. I would like to point out that our 2012 price structure (prices including cart) is as follows: $75 before 12pm, $50 between 12pm and 3pm, and just $25 after 3pm. Also, there are many affordable Play and Stay packages are available through the Crowne Plaza Resort, some starting as low as $99 per night. For current availability and pricing on these Golf Packages, I would recommend calling the hotel directly. We sincerely appreciate your review, thanks again.

This was my second time playing Lake Placid Club. The first time I played the Links course and this time I tried the Mountain course. Both times I waited until 3 for a tee time, the price drops to $25 for 18 and a cart (my wife's scotch, so if I want to play golf). I was told there were people ahead of me and I would probably catch up. I didn't see anyone on the course until I got to the 9th hole, and didn't catch up to anyone until the 15th. Even then, there was no delay. Going to try and talk friends into a weekend next season.

Our nephew and his new bride recently hosted their wedding reception at the Lake Placid Club.

The entire evening was jaw-dropping. The view from the elegant "pavilion" was stunning, the food (from appetizers to entrees) was out of this world, and the staff was attentive without being intrusive.

Couldn't have been a nicer experience.
