Shenendoah, Turning Stone’s original eighteen, has been rejuvenated after a 2016 rerouting and renovation project that saw the creation of seven new holes. The course is named after one of the great chiefs in the history of the Oneida tribe. Designer Rick Smith came back to do the recent work on this playing field that alternates between wide-open spaces, wetlands areas, and parkland areas sheltered by woodlands. Shenendoah, which hosted the 2006 PGA Professional Championship, is Turning Stone’s most heavily played eighteen. Like the resort’s other courses, it is free of course-side housing and certified to Audubon International standards.

Beautiful designed track with wide fairways. You can have fun letting go with the big stick. Missing these fairways could punish you due to their high rough, fescue and native grass. There is plenty of course carries over sand bunkers, marsh and water hazards so good ball striking is still required. If playing for the first time, be aware of subtle breaks on putts. Course conditions are immaculate and staff is super friendly. Price is expensive but you get what you pay for. One of the best tracks that has tee times open to the public.

FYI, course had major reconstruction. GPS is useless on most holes so use a laser.

Wow. What a golf course. This Rick Smith design always makes any top 10 New York State golf course<br/> ranking. Wide fairways with a links feeling. Superb conditions. Challenging rough. It is expensive so I usually play it when I can get a special rate or want to treat myself or somebody else. A must golfing experience.
