State golf returns to Whiteface Club and Resort


LAKE PLACID –  Championship golf returned last week in Lake Placid.

The New York State Senior Women and Super Senior Women Amateur Golf Championships, featuring a field of 112 players, were held at the Whiteface Club and Resort for the 14th time in the venue’s illustrious history.

The events, on August 23-24, were held in purely manicured tournament conditions over the tree-lined course that played to a par of 73 (members par 71) for the two tournaments that were held concurrently. The fifth and 15th holes, usually par fours, were converted to par fives by the New York State Golf Association which administered the competition.
