Turning Stone Resort New York

Atunyote's parkland setting features vast stretches of open space, gently rolling hills, a stream of small waterfalls, and several lakes. The largest body of water, measuring 13 acres, runs along three fairways, including the dramatic finishing hole.
The longest of Turning Stone Resort's three championship courses, at 7,482 yards, this Tom Fazio design was home to the Turning Stone Resort Championship from 2007 - 2010. In 2006 it was the site of both the PGA Professional National Championship and the BC Open.
Since Robert Trent Jones Jr contributed this masterpiece to the world of golf in 2003, accolades have poured in. Of the golf courses in Verona, New York, this one is special. In 2006, Golfweek named it one of the top ten public courses in New York state. Even Audubon Intl has awarded the layout its "Certified Signature Sanctuary" designation. Kaluhyat is the second of three courses established at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino. The architect from the famous golf course design family has sculpted an environmentally-sensitive test from low-lying, fertile farmland and wetlands. The result is a par 72, 7,105 yard trek from the back tees. Shorter tees accommodate the resort clientele and, other players as well. The course rating breaks the 75 barrier, at 75.1. In New York state, only Bethpage has a higher rating. The slope is equally as stratospheric, at 146. Its simply one of the best golf courses in New York.

Thankfully, the course both opens and closes with par fives. Shorter holes at Kaluhyat will invariably demand accurate tee shots and/or well-placed irons into dramatically narrow or mounded greens. On other holes, Jones thinks big. 40 to 50-yard long bunkers are not uncommon. Enjoy the 11th, a never-ending 621 yard, par five from the tips. As a resort course, your desire for amenities will be fulfilled. Pro shop, range, practice greens, dining options, bar, and more are all present. In brief, if you possibly can, get discount New York tee times for this fabulous resort course. For those of you in the NYC area, its worth the 4-5 hour journey. You'll bring back special golf memories.
The Turning Point Resort itself was opened by the Oneida Nation in the year 2000. The Shenandoah golf course, also opened in 2000, is one of three golf courses in Verona, New York that has been created there since. The course architect for this 18 hole layout was Rick Smith. The well-known golf instructor has one of his three golf schools here. He's designed a fantastic test of golf that measures 7,129 yards from the championship tees. The par 72 layout has been rated at 74.1 by the USGA, and the slope is a very high 142. The greens often play hard and quick, and this adds to the enjoyment of the challenge. Fortunately, Smith has considered players of many skill levels by offering a total of five sets of tee boxes. The course can be played as short as 5,185 yards.

The course has already hosted an 8-player skins game that included the likes of major winners Phil Mickelson and Freddie Couples. They took on a 448 yard, par four 11th that is immediately followed by a 494 yard, par four 12th. Every amenity is available at this highly regarded resort. Practice your game on the range and on the practice greens. Check out the top-of-the-line pro shop and enjoy the quality restaurant and bar facilities. Golfers wanting to experience one of the best golf courses in New York will find Turning Point Resort and Casino just off the New York State Thruway between Utica and Syracuse.
