Great course. Big greens and fairways are like rolled out carpet. One of the best courses in Broome County probably only behind En-Joie. golf carts have GPS wich is nice and the course is challenging but scorable. Gets alittle pricey, but off season rates are very doable.

First class course. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Course is very hilly with beautiful views. Water comes into play on many holes, including the par 3, 10th hole to an island green. This was course number 3 of a three day weekend trip to upstate NY with my wife (others we played were Cobleskill and Traditions on the Glen) - we both gave this course two thumbs up. Keep the ball in the fairways -- they are like carpets -- you can take a nap on them while you wait for the group in front of you to get off the green! This is a highly recommended course. $50 gets you a weekend round with a cart with GPS. Well worth the price.

I may be new to Upstate NY golf, but if this is representative of courses up in the area, I am flat out impressed. This is a public track! Not a resort course where you pay $100+ per round. I played at 10:00 AM on Sat. May 14th, 2011 and paid $50 including the cart. Course was in terriffic shape. Very scenic. Best golf carts ever...GPS with flyover of each hole when you drive to the tee and narative on suggested best way to play the hole. Greens could have been a little faster, but they ran pretty true. I played the back tees...nice challenge but won't be a killer course for a real low handicapper (I'm a 9 hdcp). Thoroughly enjoyed playing here...I'll go back for sure!

This is without a doubt one of the top three golf courses I have played,and I have played many all over the east coast. The course has immaculate conditions! The fairways were perfect and I do mean perfect. I may have seen three brown spots from divots. The greens were as good as they can get. They hold beautifully and putt at a nice speed. when you walk on them they feel soft and spongy but there are no foot prints. Tees are excellent,tees go in the ground easily and they kind of stick there in the rich soil. The soil feels like peat especially when you fix a ball mark which always seems to fix perfectly. I really did not see many ball marks on the greens. The layout was fab going up and down hills and around corners. The fee was rediculously low for what you got when you play this course. The scenery is also top of the line. I will go back even though I live 6 hours away.

Played on 9/17 on a wet, damp day. I had not played Conklin in about six years and it was everything i remembered. The maintenance, layout, landscaping is better than most country clubs. The course layout is great imo. It's not overly long or wooded but there's still plenty of places to make mistakes if you get careless off the tee. Better players here can score well if they're solid with the putter. The greens were fairly quick even on a wet day but they're fairly flat. If anything they slop front to back on most holes. The layout has a good flow of holes with one leading nicely in to the next. There's a good group of par fives and short and long par 3's. The views from 16 green and 17 tee are awesome. The restaurant also has good food at a reasonable price. The whole experience for the public player is great. It's a must play for anyone in NEPA or the greater Binghamton area. Stone Hedge in NEPA and Hiawatha don't campare.

One of the better places I've played. Course maintenance similar (if not better) to some private clubs. A must play.

Played this course yesterday for the first time in about 10 years. I remembered a lot of the holes but forgot how nicely it is maintained. Fairways and greens in excellent shape and the GPS in the carts made things much easier when trying to choose the correct club. Views are beautiful on a number of holes, especially #7 and #18. Will play it again next week and plan to do it at least a few times each year from now on.

A "must play" if you are visiting the area. The course is a bit pricey by local standards, but then it IS the only local track with g.p.s. equipped carts. CPC is a reasonably laid out design with a lot of challenging holes. The course is meticulously manicured, with carpet like fairways and true rolling greens. The layout puts a real premium on shot placement, with LOTS of elevation changes and tricky doglegs. Don't forget to bring your camera. The landscaping is top notch, and the views from the upper holes are downright pretty. What more can I say?

This is a wonderful find. I played in cold, wet conditions, but the course was playing nicely, if wet. I heard a local say that the course was built and/or owned by landscapers. The grounds were meticulously maintained. Some very scenic holes, some strategic holes, and even some novel a psuedo island green (#10).

It appeared to get pretty busy during peak times, I tee'd off in the fog at 9am when it was less than 40 degrees, so it was only hard-core types in front.

Staff seemed to be nice, the morning lady gets in before 6am, and was very cheerful, and the lady in the snack bar was nice and attentive. All in all, this is destination golf for the value golfer. I've played maybe one other course that was better value (Air Force Academy). I paid $50, but it's now off season in NY state.

This is one of the nicest courses I have played. It will test your accuracy, and give you some beautiful views in the meantime. GPS in the cart is helpful, and the staff is friendly. I played there 9/24, and it was in excellent condition.

I played this course with my 2 sons on our way to New York City from Toronto. I had read some nice reviews about the course but I was still amazed at how beautifully manicured the course was considering that the summer has been hot and dry. The course was very enjoyable to play and the scenery was superb. My kids were so impressed that they wanted to play the course again on the way back. Unfortunately we were not able to do. Next year we will be back for sure.

This course is not only a good value, but the scenery is top notch. It is not the longest course you will ever play, but you need to be smart with your shots.

Breathtaking views looking at and away from this course - Beautiful

This course is flagged on my work calendar as a planned vacation day yearly for my buddies and myself and we've only played there once.

The course looks imtimidating yet is so very beautiful that you tend to forget how challenging it really is going to be.

Breathtaking scenery with immaculate greens and fairways are always present. Price is a bit high but after one round you'll forget what you paid. It's worth every penny. A camera should be part of your golf set for this trip. The course is also very accessable and can be seen as you travel down Route 81 South shortly after going through Binghamton.

Try it at least once and you'll be hooked just like we are.

Scenic and a true test of your ability to make golf shots

While the scenery is's a distant second to the course conditioning in spite of some winter damage on a number of greens. Fairways are, for the most part, ample and lush. Good shots yield good results.
