Shenendoah, Turning Stone’s original eighteen, has been rejuvenated after a 2016 rerouting and renovation project that saw the creation of seven new holes. The course is named after one of the great chiefs in the history of the Oneida tribe. Designer Rick Smith came back to do the recent work on this playing field that alternates between wide-open spaces, wetlands areas, and parkland areas sheltered by woodlands. Shenendoah, which hosted the 2006 PGA Professional Championship, is Turning Stone’s most heavily played eighteen. Like the resort’s other courses, it is free of course-side housing and certified to Audubon International standards.

Wanted to play this course two years ago but it was closed for a renovation and the rerouting of seven holes. I am glad that I came back to play it after the changes as I completely enjoyed everything about this course. Great hole variety, tremendous conditions, generous fairways and enough water hazards and bunkering to challenge you without overwhelming you. It is a great compliment to Turning Stone's other two courses that are also outstanding.

I absolutely loved this golf course. It was visually stunning as the flowers throughout the property are incredible. The nature fescues combined with the perfectly manicured fairways and greens made for a fun day of golf and a memorable experience.

first timer, worthwhile stop. big ballpark feel that is very playable. had to drive up to peek at a couple of fairways and bunkers. love the layout and use of terrain. links style, as well as a parkland feel on many holes. just verti-cut the greens but they were fine. 9.5 speed, very easy to navigate the breaks and the course in general.. perfect warm up for the other courses on site. was paired up with a couple guys who wok at the casino, and we really had a lot of fun together. nice staff, area,course. you can’t go wrong, just make sure you play the appropriate yardage.

Fairways are wide, giving you a good chance to put the ball in play. Missing the fairway will cost you, the rough is thick, and there is a lot of natural grasses that you will lose your ball in. Good mix of moderately easy holes and challenging holes. Several holes look intimidating from the tee, use the yardage book they provide, it helps a lot. Greens are fairly small, but they really very well. Lot os slope on the green and they were pretty fast when we played, even though it had rained a lot recently. Course was in great condition and visually interesting, definitely recommend.

Beautiful designed track with wide fairways. You can have fun letting go with the big stick. Missing these fairways could punish you due to their high rough, fescue and native grass. There is plenty of course carries over sand bunkers, marsh and water hazards so good ball striking is still required. If playing for the first time, be aware of subtle breaks on putts. Course conditions are immaculate and staff is super friendly. Price is expensive but you get what you pay for. One of the best tracks that has tee times open to the public.

FYI, course had major reconstruction. GPS is useless on most holes so use a laser.

Wow. What a golf course. This Rick Smith design always makes any top 10 New York State golf course
ranking. Wide fairways with a links feeling. Superb conditions. Challenging rough. It is expensive so I usually play it when I can get a special rate or want to treat myself or somebody else. A must golfing experience.
