Experience the beauty and challenge of one of this Country’s oldest golf courses, steeped in over 100 years of rich history. Originally built in 1898, the course was redesigned by noted architect, John Van Kleek, who benefited from the consultation of World Champion Walter Hagen.

With the Adirondack Mountains and pristine Lake Placid as its backdrop, the artistically designed course offers novices and pros alike a rewarding day. Its trademark clover leaf designed greens and bunkers illustrate the meticulous attention to details the architect provided.

The Whiteface Club & Resort golf house and pro shop offer a wide variety of quality golfing products. Join us on the covered deck overlooking the putting green and first hole for a casual lunch or beverage, or one of a variety of golf tournaments.

The entire eighteen-hole course is enhanced with a state-of-the-art irrigation system.

The Annual 9 Hole One Club plus Putter Tournament

With this popular and very interesting format, some golfers soon realize that to score well, one club sometimes serves you better than 14 clubs. Last year one of our members shot a 35 with one club.
