Course Reviews


I enjoy this course and play it often. Great value in Spring and Fall. Large greens, and fairways are always cut nice. Sometimes the rough is alittle long making it very hard to find a ball just off the fairways. There are a few uphill holes wich make the aproach shots alittle tougher but the back 9 is flat and long. One of the top 4 courses in Broome County.

I was disappointed. It has always been a nice course, and the conditions were fine. However, when I got there I was told the scorecards would be on the cart. When I got to the cart, there were empty beer cans in it and the scorecard was filled out from the previous group. I asked the starter for another one and he handed me one from another cart that was also already filled out. I asked again, and he handed me a third card already filled out. I gave up. When I finished my round I asked why I couldn't get a blank scorecard and I learned that the starter was supposed to be putting new ones on the carts and cleaning them out. I guess he was just being lazy. But I spent $$$ for a nicer course with GPS on the carts. You would think this wouldn't ever happen. The GPS didnt work, and I had to keep my score with an app on my cell phone. Maybe I am nitpicking, but there are much nicer courses in the area, with functioning gps, with cheaper greens fees. Not sure I'll be going back anytime soon.

Played the Traditions course on a three day upstate NY trip with my wife. We stayed at the Traditions Inn on their "Play and Stay" special -- $195 gets you a room at the Inn, breakfast in the morning, and two rounds of golf with cart. The Traditions course is a great layout - great views from some of the higher elevation holes. golf carts have GPS which is a plus. Staff was accomodating and friendly. Front nine is very, very hilly, back nine is mostly at lowlands at the base of the hill and a bit less hilly overall. Fairways were in fine shape -- not so for the greens though. The greens were not in very good shape. Inconsistent grass with frequent brown blotches made putting quite difficult. Also, the scorecard yardage doesn't appear to be consistent with actual yardage -- mitigated by the fact that we had GPS. In summary, despite the greens debacle, the Play and Stay deal is worth it -- if you are just looking to get out for a round for the day -- call up the course and ask them what the conditions the greens are in. If you don't get a satisfactory answer, consider a round elsewhere.

Heritage golf course (Traditions at the Glen)

This is the old I.B.M. Country Club, which was renamed "Heritage" after "Big Blue" fled the area, and recently renamed "Traditions at the Glen" when a local consortium scooped it up. This is another "must play" when visiting the Binghamton area. The course is nicely maintained and well designed. All calibers of player will enjoy this course, but there are a few tough holes that are potential card wreckers. As a whole, the fairways are generous and the greens are large and undulating. There is a TON of elevation change on this course, so check your supply of nitro pills before leaving the clubhouse. The upper holes offer some nice views of the valley, and the course doesn't have any homes around for you to worry about beaning with errant drives. The course does have sand, water and a strange creek in a concrete culvert that runs across some of the lower holes. You'll find a large, somewhat dilapidated building on the bottom of the course that used to be the Country Club. This place had everything inside, from a bowling alley, to a fitness center and conference halls. It's also where the clubhouse used to be. If you notice that the course doesn't "flow" quite right, it's because the first hole used to start here. The "new" clubhouse is actually the old clubhouse from the now defunct 9 hole executive course which I.B.M. also owned. Just a little history.
