I don't normally review courses, because they're all pretty good. But this weekend, I traveled to the Saranac area for a golf trip with 8 guys. None of us are high end players, but we all golf. We went to Saranac Inn with high expectations, based on some internet searches, and videos on the course website. We played on a... More

We spend Friday of our golf weekend playing this course and it is a great place to play. The fairways and greens are in great shape. We all enjoyed playing here. We stay in Lake Place or in Saranac lake because they do not have a restaurant nor is they one near by. This use to part of a inn... More

Spectacular Seymor Dunn course hidden in upstate New York. Conditions are perfect. Greens are challenging. Interesting variety of holes. Beautiful surroundings. Clubhouse spartan. However if you like parkland golf, don't pass this one up. It is a hidden gem

If your looking for a great place to stay this is not the place your looking for. The rooms are a bit sparse to say the least. To be honest calling this place an inn is a stretch its more like a road side motel at best. The golf course on the other hand is a very nice course. The... More

I have traveled to the North Country for many years and my destination for golf is the Saranac Inn. The course is well maintained and deceptively challenging offering something for everybody. When it comes to views and speed of play it is unmatched. Don't play here if loons interrupting your back swing is a problem.Staff is friendly and the lessons... More

I have been going to Saranac Inn for over 15 years and this was the first time the greens ever played like that. Which takes away it's from its beauty. But if you have a group of friends who like to hack up a nice course, it's a great place. Usually, when you get there Friday, your clubs and stuff... More

The torn seat of the golf cart and the paper clip on the key of the cart, should have tipped us off. We are visitors to the area and were looking for a scenic, quality course. This course is nothing as described on their website. The condition of the course was very poor and there was no exceptional scenery whatsoever.... More

Based on Golf Digest ratings of 4 and 1/2 stars I expected better, and so was disappointed. A 1902 course, but hardly in the same category as other Eastern woodland courses by MacKensie, Tillinghast, MacDStaff was friendly, price was reasonable.

Love playing this golf course. It is not a hard course but it is challenging due to the fact that you are very rarely flat when you shoot anywhere but the Tbox. The ball is either above your feet or below. The rooms need some work. I do not believe that the rooms have ever been upgraded. The rooms are... More
