Elms Golf Club, The -- A Top 10 Public Course in Metro Syracuse & CNY
Review by: SyrJeffinGA The Elms Golf Club is one of the finest public, 18-hole courses you'll find in metro Syracuse and Central New York. Play this course from the tips and you'll be challenged by its many changes in elevation, doglegs, water hazards and wooded surroundings. My favorite hole on the front was #8, a dogleg left par 4 with a drive over a creek with a tree-lined fairway down the entire left side that block any approach shot that isn't far enough or straight enough to clear the corner. My favorite hole on the back nine was #13, a dogleg right, par 4 wherein the approach shot is over a small ravine...no running the ball up onto this green. Another challenging hole on the back was #17--the club's signature hole. With the exception of the distance between holes 12-13 and 17-18, the course is easily walkable and enjoyable. Play is at a nice pace. The Pro, Scott Hilton, is very likable and accommodating to locals, groups and out-of-towners.

Pelham Country Club -- Old and Hokey
Review by: John Blane This course has been destroyed twice for the construction of highways. If someone found water hazards on eleven holes they are playing another course. The ninth hole is the most unfair, hoked up par 4 on the planet and the par 3 finishing hole is a joke. The true gem is the 2nd hole which in my opinion is one of the toughest par 3's in America. It makes the signature 10th at Winged Foot West pale in comparison.
