Conklin Players Club is one of the best golf courses that the greater Binghamton area has to offer. It's easily accessible if you're located in northeastern Pennsylvania. The course is known for its consistently immaculate conditions as well as its interesting design. The layout has a nice flow that seamlessly blends a variety of different holes. Accurate shot placement is key on this up-and-down golf course. It's not a terribly long layout but there are several challenging tests in store. You almost forget about the difficulty of the course though when you're faced with the beautiful scenery. The views alone are worth playing a round at Conklin. The golf course's signature hole is the par-3 10th. Not only is there an island green, this hole also plays into the prevailing wind.

My wife and I went up to the Binghamton area for my niece's graduation. We found this course and what a great surprise. The course was in excellent condition with a great layout and wonderful views. We were both very impressed with this facility. The young man in the pro shop (didn't get his name but know he is an engineering student at Binghamton) was also friendly and helpful. We absolutely recommend this course and will most certainly play here again. Thank you CPC.

I along with 11 others got together to play this wonderful course. Conklin is in great shape and playable for all levels of talent. The GPS on the cart is a nice touch and the hole description on each hole is helpful and this course is full of uphill and downhill shots. No two holes are alike. This course is worth the time and effort to get there.

This course is such a gem! $50 with Cart on weekdays. You do sadly have to pay for range balls. The day I played it was cart path only so on some holes it was a hike. Great par threes. Number twelve is a great hole with a fantastic view. If you are within an hour of this course PLAY IT!!

I played this track for the first time and it was really nice. For a public course, I was very surprised. I would play this over and over again and would recommend it to others to play it. Lots of tee shots are blind shots but a challenging course. Carts have GPS which is nice though I carry my dependable GPS on my phone. Greens were in great shape, the weather was nice (a little warmer than I would like but still had a great time. I can't wait to play it again. The week day morning green fees a bargain.

I've played Conklin numerous times with a buddies foursome and on a golf package with 100 guys. Everyone loves the course and the guys even go down one day early to get another day of playing it. It's an excellent place to play. If I lived in the area, I would be a member and play there as often as I could. The course is always in excellent condition. The holes are picturesque and challenging. The staff are friendly and always able to help. Listen to the GPS lady and she will not lead you astray on the tee shots and the greens. There are plenty of challenging shots and you are better off if you can drive it straight. Greens are good to putt. No. 8 is a good risk-reward hole and one that will make you concentrate on the tee shot.

Highly recommend Conklin Players Club for late fall. They do a great job of keeping the leaves away. There are a few holes that if you stray too far off the fairway, you might have to do a bit of searching. Course was in great shape, hardly anyone out on course so was able to sail around. Only disadvantage is the bar is closed early.

I had not played this course in many years. The course was in excellent condition. Because high school teams were playing the front 9, and walking, we were given the option of starting on the back nine. The 10th hole is their signature hole , a 160 yd par 3 with an island green. Great time was had by all our players. We could not eat there as the restaurant was closed when we finished play.

Conklin is renowned for their course conditioning and eye catching holes. I've often played along with people who drove 3 or more hours just to play here. With that said, the course isn't cheap by local standards ($55+). Needless to say, when you can find a better deal, (like what is offered on Golfnow) you'd better take it. Expect a 4 hour round on an average day. There is a ton of elevation change here with some spectacular views. Carts are electric with GPS and well maintained. Food is good and staff are cordial.

Last minute trip to the area allowed us to get a round in before Dinner. Staff was most helpful getting us in behind a large group finishing up shotgun start. Had the course to ourselves and took advantage by enjoying the scenery and relaxed pace. Played with a first timer to the course and he can't wait to come back again.

Still my favorite NY public course.
