The Sagamore’s Donald Ross Golf Course
Honored by Golf Magazine as one of its Silver Medal Resorts, this beautiful hillside course overlooks Lake George and was designed and built under Donald Ross's personal supervision in 1928. As part of a $75 million restoration in 1985, the legendary course was fully restored according to Ross's original blueprints.
In classic Ross fashion, The Sagamore's golf course uses the natural environment to give each hole its challenge and beauty. The holes are routed naturally through an upland meadow and the Adirondack woods, where white birches enliven the evergreen forest. To add an accent to the rolling mountainside terrain, Ross planted heather from his own native Scotland within the meadow. Lush fairways are narrow and lined with hardwoods, while deep bunkers surround undulating greens. From the elevated first tee, you have a breathtaking view of Lake George and the Adirondack peaks.
Situated in the center of the resort, The Rec offers something for all ages. From ping pong and video games to indoor mini golf and classic home run derby, it is fun for the entire family. Covered with over 10,000 square feet of indoor entertainment, it includes mini golf, wiffle ball, Nintendo Wii and X-Box stations, board games, indoor basketball, and popular table games such as billiards, foosball, and ping pong. The Rec is surrounded with a half-court basketball area, playground, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pit and 5 outdoor tennis courts including 2 with Har-Tru surfaces.
