General Comments:

The Pro shop is relatively small but maintains a decent selection of clubs, (specifically putters), shoes, clothing and balls. The Pro shop staff was friendly because he was required to be and lacked sincerity. The practice green was nice to get warmed up on and provided a good indication of what to expect on the course but the lack of a driving range (or even a net) to really loosen up at was noticeable.

Beautiful views of the surrounding area from many of the tee decks and greens add to the golf experience at Lowville G.C. There are many young trees lining the fairways and other than some patches of serious fescue it is relatively open and forgiving. This being said - most greens have traps that have a habit of being in the right place at the right time. Hitting into greens is difficult due to the constant undulations and mounds on the fairways - I never had a flat lie. This also makes walking tough - although it can be done and provides a decent workout. Management is currently doing a lot of work to the course (adding retaining ponds, mounds and tee decks) such that it will undoubtedly look/play much better at the end of this year or early next. The course is nice, plays fair and smooth - 4 hrs. on a Saturday! But the facilities (pro shop and clubhouse) are lacking. I would definitely play this course again although I will likely wait until the course improvements are completed.

Best Hole: 10 (par 5)
Why: Drive to a fairway below, dogleg right uphill to an kidney shaped, elevated green that is difficult to stick. You need to be a mountain goat to walk this hole!

Overall rating : Good

Overall value: Good value
