A wonderful wander thru the hills

A great way to spend a hour or so looking at great views of the high peaks of the Adirondacks.

Course is a modified par 3 with on par 4. When you don't have the time for a full round this is the place for you.

Super quirky, super fun

I'm probably in the minority here, but I like the Mountain better than The Links. The ties to Mackenzie are nice, but it's just the variety of the looks and uniqueness of the holes that stand out. With five par 3s and only three par 5s (including back to back 600-plus-yard holes at 10-11), there's a lot going on.

The 242-yard, par-4 14th would just be another monster par 3 at most TPC courses, but here, in this historic setting, it's a birdie hole where both my partner and I drove it in to the woods on the left, making bogey or worse! Blind par 3s at no. 15 (as good a Dell hole as I've seen beyond the original in Ireland) and no. 17 throw more curve balls at you.
