Ely Park Municipal Golf Course67 Ridge St
Binghamton, NY 13905
This course, located on a mountain peak, affords countless scenic views of several cities situated at the base of the mountain. The front nine is open, while the back nine is narrow because of its tree-lined fairways. The mostly circular-shaped greens are offer subtle breaks on the front nine, and heavy undulations on the back nine. A pond only comes into play on one hole. Two of the most scenic holes are #2 and #16. The #2 hole is a 110-yard, par 3, featuring a 100 yard drop from tee to green, and also featuring a scenic view of the City of Binghamton. Hole #16, a 113-yard, par 3, requires a tee shot over a ravine with a stream flowing down its center to the green. Tee times are only reserved for weekends and holidays.

Good Course for the money, May 05, 2004
from Endwell, NY
|Not a course for the experienced golfer. I played this course while learning the game and it was great. Now that I play alot (8 handicap) I think this course is a little "mickey mouse" with the greens (#7 is a joke), hole #2 is rediculous and is a Driver - wedge - putter course. You never need long irons into greens. Fairways become very hard in summer. Overall you get what you pay for.|

|I have played this course a few times and always enjoy the challange. Not a real tough course but can be deceiving and should be played before mid to late summer to avoid hard fairways. Easy access from Highway and great views at a very fair price.|
