Imagine tee time on an Otsego County golf course. Dew clings to the grass, birds call from the trees, and morning sun glints on a nearby lake. A club swings, the ball arcs down the fairway, and your Cooperstown golf outing gets underway.
What lies ahead? The Leatherstocking Golf Course, perhaps. Established in 1909, the par 72 course extends along Otsego Lake's western shore from the Otesaga Resort to the Fenimore Art Museum. After the eighteenth hole, a par 5 that features an island tee and a lakeside fairway, refuel at the resort's grill with BBQ chicken sliders on the patio. Or you might play the Colonial Ridge Golf Course, located in a forest setting between Cooperstown and Oneonta. The family-friendly course offers tee boxes for every age and ability, and kids are welcome at the Black Bull Tavern.
Look below for more options—whether that's playing a quick nine at the Otsego Golf Club, a links-style course built in 1894, or exploring the Susquehanna River Valley at the Oneonta Country Club. And be prepared for challenging play in a beautiful setting at every Cooperstown and Otsego County golf course.
