Lake Placid Club (Links course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Lake Placid Club (Links course) Est. 1909

Where2Golf says: 

The Lake Placid Club is home to two championship layouts, the Links and Mountain courses. Both are well-rated and popular courses. The Links is a tree-lined and open parkland course, with several holes exuding a British links-style character. It is a layout that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. The course occupies a lower elevation than its companion Mountain course.

Did you know?

The Links course at Lake Placid was designed by Scotman Seymour Gourlay Dunn. Though settled in the U.S. at the age of twelve, Dunn designed golf courses in both America and Europe. Included in his European designs, were courses laid out for some of continental Europe's nobility, not least King Leopold of Belgium, the Rothschilds in France and King Emmanuel of Italy. Dunn came from a strong Scottish golfing family that included Willie Dunn Sr and his twin brother Jamie, born in Musselburgh in 1821. Willie Dunn's two sons, Tom Dunn and Willie Dunn Jr, also became prominent golf professionals, club makers and course designers. Tom Dunn married Isabella Gourlay; among their children was Seymour Dunn, born 1882 (most probably in his father's club maker's workshop, beside the first tee at North Berwick Golf Club).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
