The Turning Stone Resort Casino gets far too little press considering its golf stature – it is the largest golf resort in New York State, and also the best. All of its three courses are very good, the resort has an impressive spectrum of lodging, including the very luxurious boutique Lodge at Turning Stone, and the food is excellent. For gamblers, there is a large casino with an extensive poker room. It’s centrally located, and golfers can’t ask for much more than that.
Except maybe a great deal.
The resort just added two new stay-and-play golf packages, the Lodge Golfer’s Getaway and the Resort Golfer’s Getaway, each available starting May 1 and until October 31 – basically all of golf season here – featuring great golf, more great golf, lunch at the turn and a free drink on the 19th hole. The difference is merely where you sleep.
Both packages include unlimited range balls, unlimited golf on either the Rick Smith designed Shenendoah Golf Club or the 7,100-yard Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Kaluhyat Golf Club after 3 p.m. of your arrival day, with cart, overnight accommodations, and then 18 holes on either course the next morning, with cart, lunch at the turn, and a drink at the 19th hole.
The Lodge package includes accommodations at The Lodge at Turning Stone, a AAA 4-Diamond all-suite hotel with just 95-rooms. I’ve stayed there and it is superb. Rates start at $303 per person per night based on double occupancy. With luxury digs and two rounds of high quality golf, that is hard to beat.
The Resort package includes accommodations at casino’s Hotel or Tower, starting at $240 per person per night based on double occupancy.
