Verona, N.Y. - The Turning Stone Resort Casino golf courses have swept the podium, earning the top three spots in the annual Golfers' Choice: Best Courses in New York for 2021.
Turning Stone's Kaluyat was rated as the Best Golf Course in New York, with Shenendoah at No. 2, and Atunyote at No. 3.
The ratings are compiled by course ratings submitted each year throughout the Golf Channel's 'Golf Advisor' online community.
The list for 2020, released Thursday, features the top 25 courses in the state, with the three Turning Stone courses receiving an over 4.9-star rating out of a possible five.
The following 5-star reviews were featured on Golf Advisor, praising the conditions, layout and amenities provided at the trio of courses:
- Kaluhyat, Ranked #1 in New York: "The sheer beauty of every hole on this Robert Trent Jones Jr. track cannot be matched. The natural experience is once again on display where all Turning Stone Courses are Audubon International Certified Signature Sanctuary. Kaluhyat, like all Turning Stone courses, is a golf experience, not a round of golf." – Duane7133, 5-Star Golf Advisor Review
- Shenendoah, Ranked #2 in New York: "Staff was great from start to finish. Fairways were the best around and the greens were fast, but very true and receptive. The land and views are beautiful." - u000006197392, 5-Star Golf Advisor Review
- Atunyote, Ranked #3 in New York: "Atunyote is everything you want in a golf course. It's perfectly manicured, aesthetically beautiful, fun layout, and good pace of play. We felt like we had the course to ourselves, even though there were other groups out there. I can't wait to come back." – ctcov, 5-Star Golf Advisor Review
Host to multiple PGA events, Turning Stone's courses have widely been praised across the golf community.
Prior to this honor, the Turning Stone had recently received many other accolades including three 2020 Best in Golf Awards from Northeast Golf Magazine, named Best Public Golf Courses and awarded Best Instructors in New York designation.
Also on the Golfers' Choice: Best Courses in New York list are Cooperstown's Leatherstocking Golf Course at No. 21, and Seven Oaks Golf Club in Hamilton at No. 6.
