Westport Golf and Country Clubis a historic golf course nestled between Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks in Westport NY whose legacy began in 1898. Today, the course features spectacular views, 18 challenging holes, friendly staff, and a new restaurant/bar that offers an experience that all can enjoy.
The original golf course amounted to 6 holes known as the Westport Golf Links and was created in 1898. Shortly after the turn of the century, the course expanded to 9 holes, which were kept closely cropped by the owner’s flock of sheep.
In 1928, Scottish architect Thomas Winton was hired to turn Westport into an 18-hole course. Despite battling the Great Depression, Winton successfully designed and finished the course shortly before his death. Some have said it was his finest completed work. During the ’50s, Westport became the summer home of famed Scottish pro Henry Picard. His reputation and the beauty of the course attracted such celebrities as Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, and Harry Carey. For over 100+ years, Westport has worked hard to keep its reputation as a “must-play” course in the Adirondacks/Lake Placid/Lake Champlain region.
Today, the course measures over 7,000 yards and rewards its players with the essence of spellbinding views of mountains, lake, and the natural scenery of the Adirondack Park and Westport, New York.
Experience golf at its finest! For 116 years now, Adirondack golf enthusiasts have come by train, sailboat, paddle-wheeler, and carriage to relax and enjoy great Adirondack golf, simple hospitality, and the unspoiled scenery of the mountains. Westport sits blocks away from Lake Champlain, with easy access to the marina and waterfront dining.
