Fun to do.

This course is very nice to play. First cut is higher than you would expect, as well as second. This only adds to the challenge of narrower fairways on several holes but still manageable if you hit them straight. Because of the mountain top course, hitting long is not always your friend. Take a friend and have some fun. Worth the cost and definitely a place to return.

Really is the Top of the World

Friendly staff. Fun course. 10th hole is the signature hole with an incredible view of Lake George. Needs some ball washers and a little TLC but Definitely worth playing if you are in the area. Will play again.

Unique

How do you build a golf course on the side of a mountain? These people have done it! You need to play this course just for it's uniqueness, let alone the incredible vistas and views of Lake George, Adirondacks and Green Mountains.

The course was in decent condition considering it lays on the side of a watershed. Hard and dusty in quite a few spots. Greens were very spongy and slow, but in excellent condition.

Fairways are tight and unforgiving. Greens are very challenging. Difficult to read as you suffer from "Mountain Slope Illusion" Lol

I had a few stances and swings I have never had before. Make sure you bring food and drink with you as there is no concession cart.

A unique, challenging, fun golf course, worth playing at least once. Will return to check out the Restaurant, the menu looks very interesting and the building is beautiful.

Cow pasture

While driving into the course, the view was absolutely spectacular. The course design was impressive. Unfortunately, the place was cow pasture consisting of dead grass and weeds (and that's the fairways!). The greens weren't too bad however. For $57 greens fee we were put behind a group of six golfers who would eventually let us play through after 1 1/2 hours to play 5 holes. Stay away from this place.
