Highly enjoyable!

This is an update from my prior review. I don't know if any work was done, but the green complexes were outstanding. The good-sized greens have terrific slope and they were in great shape. The bunkers seem much improved. This course is in a very nice setting playing through the pines and the park, has fairly wide fairways and strategic options, and nice movement through a gently rolling property. It is an enjoyable classic.

Perfect weather

Classic design in great shape!

The course was in great shape. It is maintained to promote quick play with low height of rough which helps out your score and your handicap.

I had not played the Spa course in 4 years and since then, they have modified the design of a few holes for the better.

All staff were very friendly and they have a well stocked pro shop with competitive pricing.

I would recommend this course to anyone, especially to those looking to lower your handicap index as I think the slope of 128 is overrated for the men's white tee box. I had my lowest round here!

Fun golf in a great setting

I would give it 3-1/2 stars. This course is in the Saratoga State Park and it is a beautiful setting as you play through stately tall pine trees. Although a parkland course there is plenty of room to hit driver off the tee. The course is in good shape and I enjoyed the front nine in particular. It has a nice variety of par-4s and 5s and is easy to walk. The par-3s were all about the same length (mid-iron distance) and the back nine started to feel more routine, but still very enjoyable. The greens get marked up a bit but otherwise are interesting with slopes and contours. A very good course.

Classic

State course under private management and it shows from best bunkers in the area to mature trees throughout. Fun and challenging from the tips to the gold tees. New tenth green good improvement. Lot of play on weekends and Tee boxes show it. Best time to play is 3-4 PM; course usually wide open although track season is busy. Greens are large, well maintained and fair with subtle breaks. Only 2 water holes

Pleasantly Pleased

Played for the first time today, got out right on time, paired with 3 nice players. Most tee boxes were in good shape, fairways smooth and lush, greens in great shape but a little slow. Played from the white tees, about 6300 yards. Fairways were hard, so got nice roll. Water on only 2 holes, bunkers were in beautiful shape. Greens has some deceptive break and rolled very true. Overall, a very pleasant round and would definitely play there again.

Regaining It's Excellence

The Saratoga Spa course has long been a favorite but has needed upgrades for years. I'm very happy to say many improvements have been made with more to come which has restored this great old course to "championship". quality. It's a superb layout and now with a rebuilt 10th green, new sand and better conditioned fairways. Again a must play!

Must have been a rough winter

Great old course that suffered a bit this winter and spring rains. Still a long way from regaining "championship" caliber. Tee boxes were all sand and crabgrass, fairways not mowed with any distinction from first cut rough. Wonderful old resort setting and great quiet location = over priced, especially for visitors.

This course in fun and a good value

Located in a beautiful state park, this course has an interesting and challenging layout. It was in good shape, but suffered a little do to lots of play. Being a popular course, with lots of walkers, on a beautiful September Saturday resulted in a round close to 5 hours. With this in mind it was fun and a good value.
