Old Forge

Thendara Golf Club

Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondacks, Thendara Golf Club is a championship Donald Ross course. It has played host to Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and Chi Chi Rodriguez. The course was cut from the beauty of the lower Adirondack mountains in 1921.

Its hallmarks are its plush grasses, meticulously maintained greens and fairways, and majestic pines. Elevated, rolling greens are a Ross signature, and this course is no exception. You will also encounter a fair number of doglegs. Its recently installed state-of-the-art irrigation system helps ensure a memorable golfing experience.

Deer are not uncommon at Thendara, along with other wildlife. Take time to enjoy Old Forge, with its many shops, rustic ambiance and lakeside charm. Autumn in Old Forge is highly recommended. It’s also the snowmobile capital of the world, but leave that for another season.
