The first 8 holes are what I call the "valley section". A few hole with elevation changes but pretty straight forward. The next 4 are the "mountain section". Major elevation changes and side hill lies. Many great views from the mountain side section. I believe the 12th drops down farther than it is long. I love that par 3. Then you come down off the mountain and do three holes in the valley again. Then the fun part. The 16th through the 18th are what I call the "water section". Great water holes especially the 18th where you tee off from an island tee box out in the lake. A very challenging par 5 where you hit onto the fairway from the side so you have to know how far you can hit to clear the water but not too far to hit through the fairway. I'm from the Albany, NY area and this course is about an hour ride for me but it's my favorite course in upstate NY. Must play it at least once. I play it every year at least once.

Great scenic course. Number 2 has a nice elevated green, but the holes start to get good on number six. When on the sixth tee you can see lake Otsego and the 18th fairway which from the back tees looks like where you have to hit, but you actually have to hit over the trees slightly to the right. The whole back nine is very good. 14-18 are made for scoring; although good driving is needed.

If you are making a visit to Cooperstown for the baseball hall of fame and enjoy golf, this course is well worth playing. Not the hardest course, which makes it good for all levels of golfers, but not a pushover either. Playing it for the first time, there are a couple holes that are hard to visualize where to hit your tee ball. Proper reading of the greens can be challenging.
