Haven't been there this year, but had to put a date for review to be published. We have played here many times. I agree about cost but golf is ridiculously overpriced. I'm a beginner golfer but my boys play and we have played here either...More

The golfing experience here is great and so is the light lunch afterward. The whole facility is comfortable and the prices were reasonable. Sometimes you pay too much for the setting and not the golf. There was real value here.

Played this golf course solo on a Wednesday morning in 2.5 hours. The course is in terrific shape and enjoyable to play. Will definitely play again next time I am in the area

This golf course was overpriced for what it was. Fairways are very narrow and greens are super slow. The course conditions were above average but not amazing. Save your money and choose another Lake Placid golf course.

Good course to walk. Some blind fairways as with many mountain courses. Clubhouse is not the most friendly however. Maybe is for the members. Very fair course otherwise!

The course is in fantastic shape. The fairways are in great condition. The greens are like carpets. The scenenic views are breath taking. I play this cousre every year in May to start my season of golfing. So to all you golfers ENJOY!!!

Challenging and scenic and in great condition. A real pleasure to play. Bring along some extra balls however for the tree lined fairways.
