SARATOGA NATIONAL GOLF CLUB
Located at 458 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs, Saratoga National Golf Club is a beautiful award-winning 18-hole public course in Saratoga Springs, NY. In 2007, First Columbia became a partner in the club and added to its existing charm with a 2,500 SF second floor banquet addition. First Columbia has development plans to enhance what is already one of the region’s premier public courses with a world class spa, a golf practice facility with top flight pros teaching lessons, a hotel and other possible improvements.
For the time being the focus will be on the 7,300-yard course and the 35,000-square-foot clubhouse in an effort to attract more corporate clients and others looking to mix business with pleasure. The 405-acre property also features the high-end Prime at Saratoga National restaurant (Mazzone Management) and hosts 120 weddings a year.
At nearly 7,300 yards, it’s longer than typical courses, which run 6,600 to 6,800 yards. The course attracts a large number of out-of-town players. It is estimated that more than 40 percent travel 50 miles or more to play at the well-known club, Saratoga National attracts 25,000 golfers a year.
In addition to placements on the “Best New Upscale Public golf Course in America” list and “100 Best Public Golf courses in America”, the course has also received recognition from other nationally known professional sources:
- Named “Golf Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owner’s Association (NGCOA)
- “Best Courses for Women to Play” by Golf for Women Magazine two years in a row
- “Best Public Access Golf Course in New York State” by Golf Week Magazine
