Course Reviews


My friend John and I played the course on 06/16/09. We were impressed with the conditioning of the course, save the goose crap on #6 and the skunk damage to several greens. (Note to the greens-keeper...If the NYS park service won't let you trap or exterminate the skunks, try a little nicotine on the greens to eliminate their food source (grubs)..)...Other than that, the fairways and rough were in good shape, and the bunkers were clean and raked. The carts (gas)were in decent shape too. The clubhouse was new and had a nice bar/grille. The system for signing in at the pro-shop couldn't be more asinine, and in keeping with all of the waste and redundancy we've come to expect from NY state. Picture this.. there are 2 desks. A schlub at one desk takes your $$ for green fees ($23) and gives you a starter ticket. You then take 4 steps to the right and pay for your cart ($13 per person) to another guy. When I asked why this was so, I was given a terse response that "that's the way it works in the parks system" accompanied by an annoyed look. Excuse me for asking where my tax dollars are going....Aside from that, the pace of play was slow (5 hours), due in large part to the number of senior golfers walking the course. The course is hilly in spots, with lots of fairway moguls. The greens were full of undulation and a MONSTER to putt. Other than all of that, and our crummy scores, we had a decent time.

Nice new clubhouse, greens and fairways well maintained.

Excellent course, with a brand new clubhouse. One your better public course.
