James Baird State Park is situated on farmland once owned by James Baird, a contractor, and engineer whose firm constructed the Lincoln Memorial. In 1939 James Baird donated the 590 acres of land to New York State under the stipulation that it be known as James Baird State Park. Work began on the park and golf course in 1940. Construction continued intermittently during World War II and the golf course was officially opened in 1948.

Can't wait until they hook up the water. Then the course will be this good all season. It used to brown up and be unplayable by the middle of June.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
