The Saranac Inn Golf and Country Club was once part of the famous Saranac Inn Resort. The course was founded at the turn of the century and designed by renowned Scottish pro and architect Seymour Dunn. The course is located in the heart of New York's Adirondack Mountains on Upper Saranac Lake. Designed in classic Scottish fashion using the natural terrain to provide a wonderful golf experience with spectacular mountain views, pure mountain air and memorable fragrance emanating from balsmas that line the course.From the bent grass tees to the tight lush fairways to the deep bunkered undulating greens, the Saranac Inn has a reputation as one of the most carefully maintained and challenging resort courses in the northeast. "The best course in the Adirondacks is 'immaculately maintained' with 'friendly service' and 'spectacular greens, tees fairways'" One fan particularly likes the greens as "fast, true and well bunkered".There is a "good mix of long and short holes"."The course is truly a gem".2012 Golf Digest Best Places to Play 41/2 Stars

  • Stayed at the Inn and Jim has been a fantastic host. It is beautiful up there this time of year. The Inn is simple and comfortable with independent heat/ac in each room. The course is in incredible shape right now! Greens are fast and many have tough breaks but still read pretty true. The fairways are some of the nicest I've played this year and the tee boxes are in incredible shape. The bunkers were firm but forgiving - lots of give under foot - not hard pack. Played in sub 40 degree weather on the 8th and even with the chill the course was 100% worth playing. Talked with some of the grounds crew, and I complimented them on the course condition. Mike and Jason were super nice. Everyone was on the course this morning getting it ready for the end of season tournament and the work they all put in really shows. The wildlife on the course is diverse - deer, geese, porcupines and I'm sure other birds and animals I overlooked. Thanks for such a great stay!
