"One of the best courses to play." - Golfweek
The 18-hole championship Otesaga's Leatherstocking Golf Course will challenge golfers of all skill levels. Featuring natural contour terrain that sweeps along the western shoreline of Lake Otsego with views from various elevations, guests are assured of a great golfing experience. Designed in 1909 by Devereux Emmet, it is considered by many to be one of the East's most scenic and challenging resort golf courses. With two great finishing holes, #17 Par 3 playing up to 195 yards over water and #18 Par 5 with an island tee and the fairway along the lake, how the golfer plays these holes often determines whether the match is won or lost. Upon completion of your round, enjoy lunch or a snack, a cold beverage and conversation on the Pro Shop Patio or the Otesaga's Veranda. An ideal day trip from the Capital Region (Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga), Central New York (Utica, Syracuse, Rome), the Southern Tier (Binghamton, Elmira, Corning), or Rochester and New York City; don't forget to pack your clubs! Advanced tee time reservations are recommended.
