Very Good Course

The course is very good. I did find the stretch of water holes, right by the entry way of course, to be annoying for that reason. The holes aren't bad, but I do wonder how natural they are. For design, the course has good variety and stays playable in windy conditions. The turf conditions were better than what one should reasonably expect for early season. Sadly, I have to say that my "Recommend This Course to a Friend" must have conditions...for the $80 I paid today, the course is fine. Peak rates for off-season times are $120 and that's pushing the limits for value. Peak rates are $220 during the summer. For that price, there's just no way I'd recommend it to anyone.

Complete golf experience

Saratoga National is a superior golf course located just shy of the Adirondacks in upstate New York. Groups who play here are given the ultimate treatment from the moment you unload your bags. Carts are top of the line which have onboard coolers stocked with ice and water, ball and club washers and a great GPS system which is so sophisticated it alerts you on the seventh hole that you should order some food to be ready at the turn(get the cheesesteak). Well why not? How about a cigar at the turn as well? They have those and they even hook you up with a complimentary cigar cutter. Before your round you should warm up on the great practice facilities which include a limitless range, short game area and large putting green. The 1st to 18th holes at Saratoga are just perfect. Course conditions are excellent and its location in upstate New York is great because you really do get a feeling of remoteness that is otherwise absent when playing in heaveily populated areas. The course is very difficult but if you're not having a great round try your best to just have fun because it is such a unique and enjoyable experience. Any memory of frustration is eclipsed by the course and amenities. The clubhouse is gigantic. The food and drink at the 19th hole was, as expected, great. Out back overlooking the 18th green was a huge stone patio and bar with a waterfall. We played the course in April and it was still chilly so no one was populating that area but my Dad assured me in the summer it was quite a scene on a hot day. The fees run pretty high in the summer months but early spring isn't that bad, you'll get the royal treatment either way. Can't wait to play again.
