Any guys here know the courses up near Albany/Saratoga Springs area ?

Driving up from Northern NJ and doing a three day up to the race course in Saratoga Springs and would like to place a course close to the NY thruway going up and coming back. We already have a tee time at Saratoga National so looking for one or two more nice tracks.

The Links at Union Vale is a pretty good course.

If you’re looking for something closer to Albany, maybe @colin007 or @RFKFREAK can help.

@MGNJ88 if you're looking for a course in the Capital Region Fairways of Halfmoon is a good course.  I might also suggest Van Patten which has three 9s.

Saratoga National is a very nice course, it's a bit rich for me but I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

The Saratoga Spa State Park course is one of my favorites in the entire area. You won't get the resident rate but it's still a good deal.

Saratoga Lake Golf Club is ok, some great holes and some boring holes, a bit scruffy in places.

Thanks Colin. We’ve played the Spa course and it’s a fun track. I was hoping to hit a place on the way up the Thruway that we’ve never been to. Your thoughts on the Fairways at Halfmoon ?

Wiltwyck in Kingston is good, maybe not far enough north for your plans though.  I think they just hosted a US Sr Am (or something like that, don't recall exactly).

Fairways is nice, there are a few spots where it looks like they ran out of space and just shoehorned a hole in where they could. There's a great par 3 on the back overlooking a rail yard with a massive drop, I like to tee up a couple drivers and Hulk Smash as far as I can.

    • 7:49am 10th Tee -  Tyrrell Hatton, Bryson DeChambeau, Max Homa. Nice to see the biggest hitter on the USPGA tour, back. Good luck Bryson.  
    • Yes, you can move clubs into the "unassigned" bin, but it won't let you delete a club that has been used, so everything added to the "my bag" stays there. The system used to let you delete a club but would give a disclaimer message saying something like deleting this club will also delete all of the data associated with it. What is annoying about this is that in post-round editing, all of the clubs, assigned or not come up in editor. So if a shot was registered with the wrong club, it's not intuitive to pick from the list which is color coded rather than providing a description. This is rare - it would happen in cases where you put a new club in the bag but didn't update the "my bag" section so shots were registered on the old club. Or possibly a scenario where you took some practice swings with a 8-iron and it registered a shot, but then you actually hit the shot with a 9-iron. For example, below, this is what I see if I wanted to change the driver I used for this tee shot:
    • I'm definitely taking relief from something that only exists in that location to mark off yardage
    • That is the course we staid on when we did our golf trip to Orlando like 8 years ago. I really like that course. Fair, but you really have to figure out how to play it due to the amount of bunkers on the course. 
    • Heard good things and considered it but we had to skip that one this trip 😕
