Lake Placid Golf Courses
Golf in Lake Placid is in full swing from late spring through fall. A round of golf is one of the favorite outdoor activities in the Adirondacks for visitors. The rugged 360-degree views of the High Peaks, coupled with the sophistication of lush fairways and well-manicured greens, provide a truly remarkable golfing experience. There's a long standing saying here that with views like these you will have trouble keeping your head down and your eye on the ball.

From Lake Placid native Craig Wood to Ben Hogan, Joe Kirkwood Sr., and Seymour Dunn – some of golf's greats have refined their games and architected courses in Lake Placid.
