Sagamore Resort & Golf Club, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Bolton Landing, New York.
SagamoreGolf Course first opened for play in 1928. The par 70 course was designed by Donald Ross. As part of a $75 million restoration in 1985, the legendary course was fully restored according to Ross's original blueprints.
In classic Ross fashion, The Sagamore's golf course uses the natural environment to give each hole its challenge and beauty. The holes are routed naturally through an upland meadow and the Adirondack woods, where white birches enliven the evergreen forest. To add an accent to the rolling mountainside terrain, Ross planted heather from his own native Scotland within the meadow. Lush fairways are narrow and lined with hardwoods, while deep bunkers surround undulating greens. From the elevated first tee, you have a view of Lake George and the Adirondack peaks.
Honored by Golf Magazine as one of its Silver Medal Resorts, this hillside course overlooks Lake George. Golf Digest rated this course as the "5th Best Public Course in New York State." In addition, Corporate and Incentive Travel gave it a "Greens of Distinction" award and CondÃ© Nast named it a top U.S. resort course

I PLAYED THIS THE FOLLOWING DAY AFTER PLAYING SARATOGA NATIONAL AND SARATOGA SPA. I LOVED BOTH OF THOSE COURSES BUT ALTHOUGH THE COURSE IS WELL MAINTAINED AND CHALLENGING, I FELT IT WAS EXTREMELY OVERPRICED FOR WHAT WAS BEING OFFERED. IT WAS COMPARABLE IN PRICE TO SARATOGA NATIONAL WITHOUT GPS/ RANGE BALLS/ ICED COOLER WITH WATER( I'M SURE THIS WOULD SEEM PETTY TO SOME BUT IT FELL SHORT FOR ME). I WOULDN'T GO THAT DISTANCE AGAIN FOR THAT COURSE(130 MILES).

Very good Donald Ross layout. Look forward to playing it 5-10 times each season. Every hole is unique from any other on the course. Weakest holes are the two par 5's. Greens are very tricky with frequent invisible breaks.
