This Robert Trent Jones masterpiece is characteristic of all Jones’ courses, which include strategic deployment of water, extensive tee areas, and large, expansive greens.
A creek wanders throughout Seven Oaks, which is home to the Colgate University golf team. Nestled in the hills of historic Hamilton, the course is truly a hidden upstate gem.
Jones designed Seven Oaks in 1934, but because of the Great Depression, the plans sat idle in a drawer until the 1950s. The ground was broken for the first nine holes in 1956 and the second nine were completed in 1964.
The storybook setting is beautiful in any season.
