Course Overview

Walter Travis was one of the leading course architects of the early 20th century. Himself a winner of the British Amateur in 1904, he went on to design – or redesign – a number of highly regarded courses including Garden City, Ekwanok in Manchester, VT, and Yahnundasis in Utica (home course of the NYS Amateur Golf Association). His courses have earned a following that has been institutionalized in the Walter J. Travis Society, which preserves his heritage and course histories.


Today the course bears Travis’ signature design principles: Bunkers requiring particular attention from the teeing ground, and undulating greens [in Travis’ words “seldom if ever flat…”].

One round – even a look – illustrates the varied topography on which Travis applied his principles. Our course ranges over 325 acres and is arguably the most scenic course in the Capital District. The 10th green and 11th tee are perched above the club house, and on a clear day, the view extends over 50 miles southwest to the Catskill Mountains.
