Nice condition (watered fairways) while other courses in the area had burned out fairways. Scenic course. Rolling tight fairways, slow greens, some stones in bunkers, stone cart paths, Twilight rate ($60) makes the cost more reasonable but, unfortunately, the restaurant and pro shop were closed when we finished our round.

Pace of Play: Excellent

Not a long course but a lot of fun and well maintained. I have played all of the courses in the Lake Placid area and this one is my favorite.

There is no range but there is a pitching/chipping area to warm up and food at clubhouse is way above average.

It's a chill/fun round of golf with some great mountain vistas but I was a little disappointed that none of the wholes are on the lake.

Overall a must play if you are in the area.
