Bartlett Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Olean, New York.
Bartlett Country Club first opened in 1910. The original 9 holes were built in 1910 on a plot of land running from Main Street (Old Route 16) and the current boundary of the city of Olean . The original course lies on a gently sloping hill that results in most greens breaking southwest or, as locals say, "towards the post office."
This traditional course is quite challenging. The fast greens are sloped, and the fairways are narrow. There is a creek that comes into play on eight holes. Stanley Thompson redesigned the course in the 1920's, followed by Robert Trent Jones in 1960.
The 18-hole championship golf course measures 6,308 yards from the blue tees, 6,069 from the whites, and 5,094 from the reds. Senior tees were added in late 2008 and measure about 5500 yards. Elevation changes make the course play longer than the distances would suggest. Par is 70 for men and 71 for women. The defense of the course has been historically the pace of the greens. In the summer the combination of speed and slope of the greens make the course a challenge.
Par for the course is 70. From the back tees the course plays to 6,308 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,622 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 2, a par-5 that plays to 560 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 160 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 2, the 560 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Bartlett Country Club is # 15, a 200 yard par-3.
