Have played there for years and I always return. They not only provide an exceptional golf experience, but also their star studded top-notch staff and customer service is unmatched. They are committed to provide the best possible customer experience both on and off the course. This year once again they have two courses in the “Top 100” you can play. I moved to the Golf capital of the world, Myrtle Beach a few years ago. I have more choices for golf and club fitting than almost anywhere in the world, yet I return to Verona NY annually for club fittings and to play Atunyote, Kaluhyat, and Shenendoah tracks.

This year during club fittings I worked with Ryan McGinnis a true professional golf fitter. I was determined to buy the new driver a Taylor-Made M-5 or Callaway Epic Flash. Ryan worked for over an hour and a half , and with his assistance I ended up with new shafts for my two year old driver. I got the distance I needed and was treated not as a “sales goal” but a golfer who wanted game improvement. Golf is a game of integrity and Turning Stone staff delivered again.

I could rave about their courses but I can not match the spot on accolades delivered by the major golf publications. I would like to share a story about their commitment to the experience of great golf. A few years back a friend and I played at the end of the season and just walked on. It was a cold Fall day with rain in the air. Myself and my friend were the only ones crazy enough to be out that day. Signed in to play and was told to wait 30 minutes before I go out. I had no idea why the wait, no one was there. What the staff at Turning Stone had done was send out a full greens maintenance team in front of us, to blow all the leaves off the tee boxes, fairways and greens. (Fall in NY has millions of leaves blowing). They consciously stayed just about a hole and a half in front of us, clearing the way for a great day of golf, despite the weather.

Turning Stone in nothing short of perfection.

One of the toughest tracks as they come. With a slope rating of 150, most weekend warriors should not be playing from the tips and championship tees. Everything that challenges a player is in this course. Long holes, blind shots, moderately narrow fairways with fescue and native grass will punish you if fairways are missed. There are plenty of force carries over water hazards, marsh, and fescue on most holes. In my opinion the toughest course in the Turning Stone facility because it's the least forgiving off tee shots. Even though it's a tough test, good shots do get rewarded. Since the greens were recently aerated, conditions weren't perfect this day. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The facility has that homey feeling as oppose to the hustle and bustle on a extremely busy muni. Anyway, playing all the courses at Turning Stone is worth the drive. Definitely one of the best tracks that's available to the public.

What a fantastic golf course. From the Jones layout to the condition of all three facets of the course, tee, fairways and greens to the helpful staff this course is top notch and if you wait until 2pm you can play for only $100 including cart and range. This is not a course for the faint of heart, this is a tough course to play for anyone over a 15 handicap. As we like to say "this is big boy golf". With a nice, fairly wide open par 5 to start you round you can get a false sense about this course. Don't be fool, there are challenges on every hole with forced carries off the tee on almost all 18. If you miss the fairway on any of these holes you will most likely be in grass up to your knees. Watch you ball if it is staying because it won't be easy to fine. This is a top course on my list and I would go back.

This Robert Trent Jones design is the most challenging of the three superb courses that make up the Turning Stone Resort. The tree-lined layout consists of different elevated fairways and tees and well-guarded greens. It is a shot-makers course.
Bring plenty of golf balls. Beautiful views . Very expensive greens fees. But worth the tariff once and awhile when you want a real golfing experience.

Always enjoy coming back to Turning Stone... Courses are always in fantastic shape. Kaluhya... I can never say it, but I love the challenge it presents. It is a fair test of golf, but you better bring your game.
