What a gorgeous golf course! The surrounding mountain views are like nothing I see around home. I want more!
I played Whiteface Club and Resort about 25 years ago and I remembered nothing about it. Playing my round I questioned whether I really had played here before as this is one course I don't think I'll ever forget.
The course was in pristine conditions from fairway to the green. Greens are a fair size with nothing too large or too small. If there is one thing that will give you trouble it will probably be the width of the fairways. Trees border many holes and sending a ball into a wooded area will often mean a tough recovery.
A round starts with a couple of short par 4s that you may want to think twice about using a driver. Even the par 5 6th saw me use a 3 iron then 5 wood to the green.
The 14th hole, at over over 200 yards from two of the 3 tee boxes is one tough par 3. Chances are you'll enjoy the view more than your score.
Each hole on the scorecard has a name so take a look to see what each one means.
Holes #3 through 5 are a little tight together so you may get to see a stray ball cross to your fairway.
Some fairways, like #9 and #13, are downward sloping and you'll get some extra distance off the tee to allow a little more cushion than normal.
Things can slow down on the back 9 at hole #14 (the long par 3) and hole #16, a short par 4 at just over 300 yards.
Whiteface ends with two par 5s. My first combination to finish a course that I can remember.
A quick stop by the clubhouse on our way out saw a beautiful layout which most likely was a wedding. Looks like Whiteface has more covered than great golf.
