Where2Golf says: 

Turning Stone Resort (Kaluhyat Golf Club): Taking its name from the Oneida word for "the other side of the sky," the Kaluhyat course at Turning Stone Resort is regarded by many as the toughest of the resort's three championship layouts. "As tough as Bethpage Black" and "a real golfer's course" some would argue. What is clear, is that the Kaluhyat's out-and-back routing takes you on a wonderful golfing journey, away from the resort centre and into pristine woodland and open countryside settings.

Pronounced something akin to "ga-loo-ya," rather than "ka-loo-yatt," Robert Trent Jones Jr's stylishly crafted layout, combines elements of links golf with open parkland and woodland holes. The course's outward nine is often flanked (but never too closely) by the returning inward holes. All are contained in a wonderfully natural setting, where housing and busy roads play no part. At times, some of the fairways will feel tighter than you'd like and the landing areas a bit too well protected by woodland, wetland or long fescue grasses - and occasionally by all three.

From time to time the gently rolling terrain throws up a more elevated tee box, which gives a picturesque view onto the surrounding countryside, as at the tight par-4 2nd. The par-3 5th is one of a fine collection of par-3s. Like the 15th it demands a carry over a wetland area with no prizes for hitting too short.

Stay & Play: onsite accommodation is available in the resort's hotel, lodge and tower (see Where2Stay section below).

Did you know?

The pronunciation of the course names at Turning Stone comes from the language of the Oneida native American people, who were one of the founding nations of the Iroquois League of central and upstate New York. Oneida means "people of the standing/upright stone." Atunyote (Oneida for eagle) is said something along the lines of "A-doon-yo," while Kaluhyat ("the other side of the sky") is pronounced "Ga-loo-ya." Shenendoah, sometimes spelt Shenandoah, is an Iroquoian word for "deer" and is said phonetically.

Turning Stone's Kaluhyat Golf Club is an Audubon International Certified Signature Sanctuary course.
