Turning Stone Resort Casino
Verona, New York
Do you love golf, but hate playing the same course over and over? Turning Stone Resort Casino feels your pain, and offers a total of five courses on and around their property!
To go into depth on each of the five courses could fill several pages, so instead we've chose to focus on one in particular: Atunyote. As the longest of Turning Stone Resort’s three championship courses, Atunyote also has one of the highest learning curves. In 2006 it was the site of both the PGA Professional National Championship and the BC Open. All of this would make it seem like it's unwelcoming to beginners, but not so fast! Atunyote has the beauty, charm, and closer tees to make even relative newcomers have a great time. Observe the vast stretches of open space, gently rolling hills, stream of small waterfalls, and shimmering lakes, and thank your lucky stars you chose to stay at Turning Stone Resort Casino!

Most golf courses have sand traps and trees as hazards, something that the Skytop Lodge certainly does. But few others can claim to have elevation as its own challenge! Tee it up from the Championship Tee and play the course at a full 6,656 yards, ideal for those with a little more experience. New to the game? No problem! Private and junior golf lessons are available for those still figuring out their game. The sky is your limit at Skytop Lodge!
