  • Beautiful setting, amazing weather for late Oct., great course, interesting and friendly playing partners with local course knowledge. Service was excellent, rental clubs in good condition. Greens were punched but no one cared. The rest of the course was in great condition. Would recommend if youre going to be near Cooperstown and want to have a quality ⛳️ experience.
  • In from out of town playing this beautiful course for the first time. Manageable from the back (green) tees at 6,400 yards. As advertised, #17 and #18 are the gems, with #11, a long par 5 up on the ridge line overlooking the lake a close third. Conditions were excellent, as expected. Greens were very firm, so front half of the green was a good bet for most holes. Bought the $8 yardage book, which it was definitely worth it and a nice souvenir. Pace of play at 8a on a vacation Wednesday was good at 3.5 hours, but could’ve been quicker. Staff were super efficient, kind, and helpful. Be aware: driving range is 5 mins down the road in your car (as others have noted). You buy tokens at the clubhouse and then get back in your car to go over to the range. Practice green is also across a couple holes away from #1 tee. So overall, I’d say get there at least 15 extra minutes before your round if you wanna warm up and get a feel for the greens. Two main gripes: 1) there’s no colored flag or other system for pin locations, nor GPS in the cart. For me, just having a GPS watch and no rangefinder, and lots of elevated greens, it was hard to know how deep the pin was on more than half the holes. So basically, bring your rangefinder if you have one. 2) Price: for $135 (relative to the otherwise pretty reasonably priced courses around the area), I would have expected more amenities — no GPS in the carts as noted, never saw the beverage cart during our 8-11:30a round (and since you don’t pass the clubhouse at the turn, that’s even more of an issue), and no drinking water on the course anywhere. Overall, glad I played this beautiful place, but will probably look for a different higher end course next time I’m visiting family up here.
