Those who are looking for a good public-access golf course should pay attention to the Conklin Players Club – an 18-holes course spread over 6772 yards of the championship tees. Originally founded in 1991 and designed by Rick Rickard, this course may appear a little bit “quirky” to the experienced players in terms of its design and layout. The reason behind this is that Rickard never played golf himself, however, he did pour a lot of passion into this project, resulting in the creation of one of the most famous “amateur-friendly” golf courses in NY. Such dedication is acknowledged by experts, because in 2010 Conklin Players Club was voted the most popular Public Golf course in New York, according to rankings by Golf Magazine.

The club is notorious for holding many Open Tournaments: packages can be purchased for 80$-100$, depending on the weekday. The schedule is updated monthly, so there is no shortage of events for experienced players.

Another interesting feature is the “Frequent Gold Card” system, designed for the veteran attendants of the club. If you play 7 times (meaning full 18 holes with a cart), you’ll receive the 8th round for free.

Tee times can be conveniently booked online on the official website, although the booking system is frequently under maintenance, so make sure to look for tee times in advance.
