There are more than a dozen golf courses in Lake Placid and surrounding area, many have been around since the late 1800s, an era when some of the first courses in America were being built. From Lake Placid native Craig Wood to Ben Hogan, Joe Kirkwood Sr., and Seymour Dunn – some of golf’s greats have refined their games and architected courses in Lake Placid.
