Chautauqua Golf Club Lake Course


Chautauqua Golf Club Lake Course, Chautauqua

Designed by legendary architect Donald Ross, the Lake Course is characterized by open tee shots and demanding approaches to small, steeply sloped greens. This four-star rated course has carved an exciting and rich history over its 100-plus years. Fourteen members of the World Golf Hall of Fame have played here, including the first Masters Champion, Horton Smith, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Jimmy Demaret and Walter Hagen (as well as President Bill Clinton).

Ross also designed Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, as well as the famed Pinehurst No. 2. You’ll experience the many Scot influences that Ross employed at his 400 course designs at the Lake Course. Stop by the Double Eagle afterwards, named for Gene Sarazen’s famous shot on the tenth hole!
