Welcome to the Adirondack Golf Trail
We seek to drive more rounds to golf courses and towns inside the Blue Line while celebrating the rich history of golf in the Adirondack Park. With increased awareness, we hope to preserve each course on the Adirondack Golf Trail for years to come.
As the trail community grows, we will offer service opportunities to help the golf courses and towns on the Adirondack Golf Trail finding ways for members to give back to the game they love.
Many golf courses on the Adirondack Golf Trail are well known destinations that have no problem drawing a crowd. We seek to open golfers’ eyes to the courses on the (cart) path less travelled which all have deep character and are incredibly grateful for visitors to their courses and towns.
A goal of the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge is to feature local photographers, artisans and service providers from the Adirondack Park while celebrating golf inside the Blue Line.
About the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge
Welcome to the Adirondack Golf Trail clubhouse where you will find the Trail Map and Master File with course information for the 32 courses included in the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge (ADKGT Challenge).
Similar to other “Challenges” inside the Blue Line like the Adirondack Forty-Sixer® feat of hiking the 46 peaks over 4,000 feet or The Fire Tower Challenge of visiting the 23 Fire Towers spread across the Adirondack Park, the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge is self-paced and open to everyone.
Unlike other Challenges, you can do this one in a golf cart with your favorite beverage!
We broke the Adirondack Park into four color coded regions (NE, SE, SW, NW) and numbered the courses in clockwise fashion for referencing only (you do not have to complete the courses in order).
If you click on the map image you will be taken to an expanded view of the map file which includes all course names, locations, number of holes, cost, and a brief course history.
This file is printable and we highly recommend using it to plan your outings and track progress towards completion of the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge.
Completing The Challenge
To complete the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge, golfers must play all 32 golf courses inside the Adirondack Park over their lifetime.
Golf courses on The Trail will have a sticker of the Adirondack Golf Trail logo on the clubhouse window and we strongly encourage golfers to post their visit on social media (Facebook and/or Instagram) tagging the golf course and using the “#wehikefairways” and/or “#adkgolftrail” hashtags to document their journey.
Upon completion of the Adirondack Golf Trail Challenge, golfers become “Medalists” which is a term reserved for champion golfers. Medalists will qualify for the Adirondack Golf Trail Medalist patch, receive invitations to exclusive events and offers for other customized Medalist keepsakes.
You can also download our high resolution full-size Adirondack Golf Trail map (.pdf file) which indicates all of the golf courses within the Adirondack region. The full-size map is suitable for printing and framing (17mb file size).
The map area is 30″ wide and 35″ in height. For your convenience, we’ve added a 2″ border around the side to allow you to trim the map for your favorite frame. The total print size is 32″ wide by 37″ high and is 300 dpi for high resolution printing.
Participation in the Adirondack Golf Trail is easy, and we offer a free ADK Golf Trail Tracker tool when you sign up to our email list. Chances are you have already played a few golf courses in the Adirondacks and we’re here to help you finish out your scorecard to become a “Medalist” on the Adirondack Golf Trail.
If you want to complete our survey form, sign up for our newsletter and receive a free printable Adirondack Golf Trail challenge tracking sheet please click on the survey and sign up button, below.
The ADK Golf Trail Tracker will help you cross off the courses you have played and help you focus in on what regions of the park need your attention. If you see a pocket of courses you haven’t played we strongly suggest filling out a foursome with friends or family and making a weekend out of the excursion. Some Adirondack golf courses offer onsite lodging like Cronin’s Golf Resort, or are in towns with many hotel or rental options such as Lake Placid, Lake George and Old Forge.
We’re confident that your visit to the Adirondack Golf Trail will leave you with more memories than the tee shot on the last hole that sailed dead straight into a perfect Adirondack summer sky.
