Better courses to play for much less $

100% honest review here with no punches held. After paying $62 for 18 w/cart per person, I left this course feeling ripped off. Club house staff is borderline unfriendly. Workers on course pay no attention to you. They drive up on you in carts, mowers, or pickup at any point. The greens are terribly slow. Most holes there is no definitive fairway. If there is a fairway it's not much shorter than the rough, if at all. Edges of play are so overgrown & thick you will lose your ball more than you find it. There's a short par 5 that doglegs 90* with trees blocking 90% of fairway. What are they thinking there? The layout is decent with a good combination of easy & challenging holes. The scenic view that's prized is only seen on a couple holes. Most better golfers will NOT enjoy the conditions & slow greens. The value just doesn't warrant the price.

Charming course

We had a deliteful 18 at Top of the World. It’s a very old school experience. The course feels like it was built by a guy with lots of land as well as money. In fact, that’s the story. Enjoyed the round a lot. Just don’t come expecting lux fairways. It was all clover. But the layout was interesting and challenging.

Pretty good course

Played 18 holes (walked) We had a good time but the hill between holes 15 and 16 was a killer. Would definitely come back but maybe get a cart.

Would not honor golf now pricing and are not up to date with tee times with the course. Cost us $25 more per person. Not sure why they use golf now.

Adirondack golf with some magnificent views

Play this course and you'll get to enjoy the challanges of slopes and elevation changes requiring thoughtful club selection and shot placement through the smaller size greens.

Course condition good. No hard paved cart paths is an esthetic plus.

Staff very friendly.

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.
