“Forgot I was in the beautiful Adirondacks.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The torn seat of the golf cart and the paper clip on the key of the cart, should have tipped us off.
We are visitors to the area and were looking for a scenic, quality course. This course is nothing as described on their website. The condition of the course was very poor and there was no exceptional scenery whatsoever. Fairways were patchy. The bunkers were filled with dirt - not sand - and contained sizeable stones. Some of the cart paths were hazardous. The course layout was fine.
The Mon-Fri fee of $75 (incl cart) is ludicrous for the course condition. We were so disappointed to have spent 4 precious hours of our vacation here.

“Pleasant afternoon, but not exceptional”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Based on Golf Digest ratings of 4 and 1/2 stars I expected better, and so was disappointed. A 1902 course, but hardly in the same category as other Eastern woodland courses by MacKensie, Tillinghast, MacDStaff was friendly, price was reasonable.

“Great Golf Course but accomadations Not Great”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Love playing this golf course. It is not a hard course but it is challenging due to the fact that you are very rarely flat when you shoot anywhere but the Tbox. The ball is either above your feet or below. The rooms need some work. I do not believe that the rooms have ever been upgraded. The rooms are not that great for a man's get away but for women, I believe it is below grade.
