The best golf excursions feature a little bit of everything– championship courses, knowledgeable staff, pristine facilities and a variety of amenities off the course–and Turning Stone Resort Casino in Upstate New York offers all of this and more.
With five beautifully landscaped courses, a comprehensive practice facility and expansive Golf Superstore, and extraordinary award-winning amenities ranging from dining and nightlife, to spas and casino gaming, Turning Stone is a dream locale for a golf getaway.
Golfers looking to play like the pros need look no further than Turning Stone’s three championship courses: Atunyote, Kaluhyat and Shenendoah. Golf legends like Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler have all played at Turning Stone. Atunyote, a Tom Fazio design, is an expansive, wide-open course with lush, rolling greens that stretch back 7,315 yards. Kaluhyat, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., is marked by dramatic changes in elevation and unique terrain that tests golfer’s accuracy and strategy.
After nearly a year-long redesign last season by original architect Rick Smith, the resort’s original 18-hole course, Shenendoah, reopened in September 2016 with seven all-new holes. The course was built and is maintained to comply with stringent Audubon International standards for environmental protection and preservation. Smith used the natural landscape to create wooded parkland holes. Designed, constructed and maintained to TOUR standards at more than 7,000 yards, the course offers five tee boxes on every hole creating the perfect experience for any level of player. Turning Stone also offers two player-friendly nine-hole courses perfect for golfers of all abilities.
Off the course, the Golf Dome is a paradise for any golfer looking to give their game a boost. Featuring an indoor practice area with 40 driving range hitting stations arranged in a double-deck structure, a state-of-the-art simulator and a TaylorMade Tuned Performance Center, the Golf Dome is the ideal place to sharpen skills for the course.
Located inside the Golf Dome, the Golf Superstore has nearly every golf product imaginable, including apparel, shoes, clubs, balls, training aids and more, along with precise club-fitting technology, including a FlightScope launch monitor, expert club repair services and knowledgeable, qualified staff available at all times to assist.
The fun at Turning Stone doesn’t end at the 18th green. Turning Stone offers the ultimate experience for golfers looking for a getaway. Players can fuel a long day on the course with more than 20 dining options, including TS Steakhouse, a penthouse restaurant located on the 21st floor of the Tower hotel.
A Forbes Four Star and AAA Four Diamond rated resort, with more than 700 rooms available, ranging from cost effective to luxury suites, Turning Stone offers an extensive choice of award-winning accommodations, perfect for any size group or budget.
