Courses and Clubs

Honored by Golf Magazine as one of its Silver Medal Resorts, the Sagamore Golf Course is a splendid mountainside links course designed by Donald Ross.  We are delighted to have two events there.  In addition, you will be able to buy tee times at deeply discounted rates.

Saratoga National Golf Club was recently voted (by golf digest) as the 17th best course in the State of New York. That designation includes all the famous private resort and daily fee courses in the best golf state in the United States. As an Empire Golf Club member you will be able to enjoy this decorated course twice! Enjoy!

We urge all members to look at the fabulous prices available at the 4 star Equinox Resort Golf Club Equinox was built at the same time as it’s adjoining world famous neighbor Ekwanok Golf Club by famed architect Walter Travis and is truly a New England gem. The course was renovated in recent years by architect Rees Jones (the famous USGA open “doctor”) and is truly one of the best courses you can play anywhere!

We are especially pleased to offer two events at Olde Kinderhook Golf Club, the only golf course in our area to earn a “Top 100” national ranking (Golfweek).  At the Empire Golf Club special rate of $50.00 this is a must play and some will want to consider membership in this great club also.

Empire Golf Club is truly honored to be able to offer events at the Country Club of Troy’s Walter Travis designed course.  Mr. Travis was America’s finest player in the early 1900s and designed many famous courses.  Tom Doak’s Renaissance Golf was hired to renovate the historic layout, and the results are fabulous.  No course in upstate New York has a better pedigree.

The Saratoga Spa Golf Course has been one of the best values in northeast golf for many years now. You can go to our tee time area and reserve your (and your friends) tee time and enjoy all the recent conditioning renovations done at this famous New York State park layout.
