Built in 1901 Burnet Park remains one of the oldest golf courses in New York State. The course is located on the city's west side in historic Tipperary Hill. True to the neighborhood's Irish roots, the first hole features the country's only "shamrock" bunker. The course has undergone several changes since its opening more than 100 years ago. The latest took place in 1988 with a complete renovation. Located on the city's highest point of elevation, golfers are treated to breathtaking views and dynamic hole designs. All the greens are medium in size and speed. Beginning golfers and seniors will really enjoy playing this course because there aren't too many hazards and it's easy to walk.
