Built in 1901 Burnet Park Golf Course remains one of the oldest golf courses in New York State. The par 28 course was redesigned by legendary golf professional Larry Murphy and is located on the city's west side in historic Tipperary Hill. True to the neighborhood's Irish roots, the first hole features the country's only "shamrock" bunker. The course has undergone several changes since its opening over 100 years ago. The latest took place in 1988 with a complete renovation. Located on the city's highest point of elevation, golfers are treated to breathtaking views and dynamic hole designs. The third hole's green has been known to be one of the hardest greens in any state due to its southern pitch.
