I have been playing Thendara for almost 20 years during visits to Old Forge to stay with family friends. I assumed that most golfers in the Adirondacks know about the course but realized it had no reviews on Golf Advisor. I can't recommend the course enough. It is always in spectacular condition and boasts two completely distinct 9's which are each challenging in their own right. The front 9 is a Donald Ross design that is fairly open but with very tough greens. The contours on holes 1, 7, and 9 are diabolical and a 2 putt is victory. The back 9 meanders through the woods with views of the Moose River and requires more accuracy off the tee. The pro, Rich Chapman, always has a smile on his face and the staff is welcoming. I have played 3 other course in the Central Adirondacks and Thendara clearly stands out as the top place to play.
