Chenango Valley State Golf Course -- Chenango Valley State G.C. Review
Review by: Ryan White When the greens are upkept and the play is quick this course is one of the best values in the Binghamton area. You can and better post good scores on holes 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 b/c 2, 4, and 7 are holes that can cost you strokes big time. 2-Long par 4, where par is a good score, if you lose your tee shot to the left it's O.B. if you do it to the right you can land in a huge downhill slope of woods. If your tee shot is good then you will likely have an uneven lie on the fairway with which to hit a long iron in. The green is steeply sloped front to back and makes for some very challenging putts. 4-Make sure you hit your tee shot down the middle or it's over. Same with your second shot...if you lose it to the right you are shooting 120 yards uphill and over 140 foot tall trees...not good. Again the green is steeply sloped. 7-In the summer this is ok b/c the ball rolls, on a rainy day...just hope for par. It's about 1000 yards long and straight. The green here is moderately sloped, but after all the walking you have to do just to get there you may forget what putting means.

Chenango Valley State Golf Course -- I Love This Course
Review by: Spring Creek I have played this course for 40 years. It was one of the first I ever played. But even though I moved away from the area 25 years ago, I still play it whenever I can. Deer and turkey are not uncommon sights as you play this course that was cut out of a forest. The course has just the right combination of difficult holes. Number 4, a par 5, is one of the most difficult holes I have ever played. Truly a nasty brute. Number 8; at 85 yards is probably the shortest par 3 I have ever played on a legitimate golf course. However, it is not all that easy to par because of the severely sloping green. In my opinion Chenango Valley is a joy to play and for the money you will not get a better value anywhere.
