Reviewed on

Normanside was built in 1927 and designed by William Harries, whose work was limited apparently to upstate New York. The course covers very hilly ground alongside Normans Kill and Harries made the most of the opportunity, constructing a number of dramatic holes with substantial elevation changes and featuring greens with severe drop-offs. Conditioning and maintenance are excellent. I played on a Monday morning and pretty much had the place to myself. Usually there are outings on Mondays and it is a very good idea to call ahead. The clubhouse seemed dated. Other reviewers have noted excellent food; I didn't try the restaurant, but did stop at the snack shack next to the pro shop where I had the best hot dog since I came to Albany. All in all a very good value at $45 for a round with a cart.
