Named #12 in New York State by Golfweek Magazine for 2012, the Whiteface Club & Resort (historically known as the Whiteface Inn) has become the premier golf course in the Northeast. Fully irrigated in 2005 this historical course is perched on the shores of beautiful Lake Placid offering a challenge on each and every fairway and green. Opened as a 9-hole course in 1895 and later expanded to a full 18-hole by noted architect John Van Kleek, who benefited from the consultation of World Champion Walter Hagen. A beautiful Adirondack style restroom was added in 2005 in the style and workmanship found within the custom luxury homes built throughout the property by the Whiteface Club's own construction division.
The course was also honored in 2005 in its first mention in Golfweek Magazine in New York State available for public access. Additionally, it receives very high praise and ratings in the noted Zagat review of golf courses. The Adirondack Cancun Sunbelt Senior Professional Tournament was held and will be held again in 2013. The 2007 NYS Senior Women's Amateur Championship was held at the Whiteface Club and Resort in August 2007.
