About

Holes 9
Type Semi-Private
Par 36
Length 2949 yards
Slope 111
Rating 33.5

Saranac Lake Golf Club is about the most relaxed golf facility you will ever find. This nine-hole course just outside downtown Saranac Lake in the shadow of Lake Placid offers yearly memberships for less than $300. The regulars are nice folks who just plain love golf.

It's also a very family-friendly golf course. Many a kid has learned the game playing with a parent or grandparent here. Not that it's a nine-hole pushover. Saranac Lake stretches to nearly 3,000 yards, with a number of forced carries and tight fairways - the par 36 is legit.

GREAT TEST OF GOLF

I have played here several times each has been a different experience. The course constantly has the best and fastest greens around. They pride themselves with getting the greens into super shape early in the season and maintaining that throughout. The course is easy to locate with it being right on route 86 between the towns of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake NY. The staff are very friendly and you can always met a new friend while playing. Price is right and be prepared for some top notch golf but watch-out because all the trouble is on the left.
