The Leatherstocking Golf Course is among the most beautiful and interesting golf courses in the country. In fact, Conde Nast rates it the 55th best golf resort in the country! Right here in Cooperstown! Each year many Hall of Famers play the course and you can too! Think you’ve got game? Johnny Bench once shot a seven-under 65 with seven birdies and an eagle and there’s a plaque on the course commemorating a monster drive of his. Turns out, it’s all about the stories in golf too! Challenging, the course features two great finishing holes, #17 Par 3 playing up to 195 yards over water and #18 Par 5 with an island tee and the fairway along the lake. How the golfer plays these holes often determines whether he pays at the clubhouse or collects!
One of the nation’s few authentic Belgian breweries; the Ommegang is a favorite of many visitors. Why not take a tour, and plan for lunch there? The sausage selection is a favorite, and so are the lamb sliders (they tell me). And check out their concert schedule. We can secure tickets on your behalf!
Cooperstown and the surrounding area hosts a number of fine wineries featuring world class Rieslings and Chardonnays from the near-by Finger Lakes region.
