A Course Not to Miss!

This is truly a must play for golfers of all skill levels. Majestic scenery of the Adirondack High Peaks coupled with the beauty of ponds, forests, the occassional deer, lush fairways and true greens provide golfers of all skill levels a wonderful experience.

Straight ball hitters will outscore long drivers who aren't as accurate as this course features dog legs on many of the holes and narrow fairways. This course has made a tremendous turn around since 2004 when new owners invested in a total irrigation system as well as having a golf agronomist serve as a consultant throughout the year.

The Whiteface Club & Resort is on the shores of Placid Lake in Lake Placid, NY and features two restaurants, vacation rental property as well as custom home opportunities. A great place to visit and play!

This course was in fantastic shape. I've played 27 public and private courses this year in New England, New York, and California, including six in the Adirondacks and this easily ranks in the top 3 for course condition, challenge, and value. The fairways were tight and well treed, the greens were fast and read "true", the pace of play was very comfortable, and there were very few blind shots.

While the greens had speed, they could have been cut a little tighter to make them really fast. There we no burn spots on the fairways, and no "funny" holes where the architect squeezed in extra yards. Overall, this was much more enjoyable than Saranac Inn or Lake Placid M., and a notch above Craigwood.

The club house was clean but modest, but hey, I came here to play golf.

Wasn't overyly impressed. Compaired to some other clubs in the area i.e. the Lake Placid Club, it falls short in value especially. Though the irrigation and major money did improve the place the developement around the courses make it less desireable than LPC which has little to no urban developement in sight.

One of my favorite courses. Always take my wife there each year to play. Great for preparing for tournament as its a great target course. Peter ( the pro ) is a fixture and historian. Get his book there
