ADIRONDACK GOLF

While Adirondack golf resorts don’t have the soft breeze of the ocean or a high-profile PGA tournament stop, the Adirondack region does have plenty of majestic views and more than 60 courses that will challenge any golfer from novice to pro. To celebrate the start of the golf season, many resorts are offering special packages geared especially for the traveling golfer. Some of the resorts offering packages include: Clarkson Inn, the Sagamore, Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, Bluff Point Golf Resort, Saranac Inn Golf and Country Club, and Water’s Edge Inn. All packages include accommodations and at least one round of golf per day. Packages start as low as $69 per person, per night. See www.visitadirondacks.com for more information.
