Central New York, Western Pennsylvania and the U.S. Virgin Islands may not be tip-of-your-tongue golf destinations. Yet, for the most discriminating golf aficionado, each offers a resort experience — one located in a quintessentially American town renowned as baseball’s birthplace; one set upon 2,000 acres in the Allegheny Mountains; one the oldest family-run resort in the Caribbean — worthy of exploration this spring.
Nearly 300,000 people a year make the pilgrimage to Cooperstown, N.Y., to pay homage to the heroes of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Many also discover that the baseball capital of the world has far more to offer — including world-class golf.
The Otesaga Resort Hotel sweeps along the shimmering, western shoreline of Lake Otsego — the “Glimmerglass,” made famous in James Fenimore Cooper’s novels of the area. Circa 1909, this elegantly luxurious, Federal-style hotel offers the charm and gracious hospitality of a genteel, bygone era, yet with a wealth of modern amenities. The majestic Upstate New York hotel is a short walk to iconic local attractions, including the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, The Farmers’ Museum and the enchanting Village of Cooperstown.
