HISTORY


Schenectady Municipal Golf Course was established in 1935.

The course opened in 1935. It was designed by A. F. Knight (the inventor of the “Schenectady Putter”) and Jim Thompson, and largely funded by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) and the Civil Works Administration (CWA), both predecessors of the well-known Works Progress Administration (WPA). Schenectady Municipal Golf Course stretches to 6600 yards (6000 m) and features fast, undulating greens and tight fairways blanketed within grasses and native vegetation. Schenectady Municipal Golf Course was ranked by Golf Digest “Best Places to Play in 2004” and earned a three-star rating.

PLAYING IN TOURNAMENTS

Competition and fun for all

Bob Haggerty Two Man Championship- This is a long standing tradition at Muni. The format is better ball of two throughout two 18 hole rounds. Teams will be flighted after their first round score. Historically, this tournament has been scheduled on the last weekend of June. This is also a scratch event, no
handicaps will be used.

Schenectady County Amateur Championships- These events are broken into two categories, Men’s and Senior Men’s. The Men’s always falls on Father’s day weekend in June. A three day event, players must shoot a score which will enable them to make the cutline each day.

The Senior Men’s rounds out the championship schedule in August. This event is two days with a cutline after the first round. Both championships are individual stoke play.

Ladies Invitational- This is a new event on the calendar, however it is not new to Muni. Once named the Ladies Gazette County Amateur, it was a popular event before it was taken off the schedule. Past history shows there were several different formats. Individual stroke play, two person better ball, scramble etc.

It has been revised and will once again take it’s place on the Capital Region Golf Calendar in July. The format will be played as individual stroke play as it was meant to be.

July 4th Clambake- Format is four person scramble. After the tournament players will enjoy an enormous buffet hosted by our restaurant vendors at the Muny Grille.

Impossible Pin- This has long been a fan favorite. See your friends frustration as they try to get the ball into some crazy pin placements! The superintendent will set the hole locations on the greens in areas that will seem, well, IMPOSSIBLE! Format is a four person scramble with an incredible dinner buffet to follow.

Golf Course Fundraiser- This event will be added this year to help fund the golf course improvement project. We are always looking to improve the course with various things such as new benches, tee signs, flowers etc. This event will help us achieve that goal. With your help we can keep Schenectady Municipal Golf Course looking beautiful. The event will be a four person scramble and will require all players to dress in the era of 1935!

Slide thumbnail
1 Par 4 Hcp 12/12 While it may be a relatively short opening hole, the trees on the right hand side will block any approach to the green should your tee shot land there. A small bunker guards the right side of this very large green.
HOLE 1
Slide thumbnail
2 Par 5 Hcp 2/2 This hole can reward golfers who hit solid tee shots as well as their second shot. The second shot is key to playing this hole. Many golfers choose to ‘go for it’ in two but beware. A large hill stands between the green and the player which can turn many a birdie opportunity into bogey or worse. A large pond awaits errant shots on the left side.
HOLE 2
Slide thumbnail
3 Par 3 Hcp 16/16 When playing this scenic par 3, golfers should add additional yardage to their club selection as this hole is uphill but disguised as being flat more or less. The large green is two tiered which adds pressure to the short game!
HOLE 3
Slide thumbnail
4 Par 4 Hcp 4/4 Players will enjoy the view here, where golfers must hit from a high elevated tee to a rather wide fairway below. The second shot offers players to test their skill as it requires shots to carry the green. Anything short will stay short and run the risk of rolling down a slope of about 10 yards. Oh and by the way, the green is also double tiered.
HOLE 4
Slide thumbnail
5 Par 4 Hcp 10/10 Players would be wise to play this short par 4 up the left side where hitting driver might be a bad idea. The large pine trees to the right block any approach shots to the green. The large oak that guards the front right portion of the green has been known to frustrate golfers of all skill levels.
HOLE 5
Slide thumbnail
6 Par 3 18/18 This challenging par 3 can turn a scorecard upside down pretty quickly. A bunker sits strategically to the right of the green and any shots left will end up down in a treacherous valley where it can seem impossible to get up and down.
HOLE 6
Slide thumbnail
7 Par 4 Hcp 14/14 Another high elevation tee shot, players may look to keep the driver in the bag. The fairway is rather narrow with trees on both sides of the hole to prevent golfers from having a clear path to the green.
HOLE 7
Slide thumbnail
8 Par 4 Hcp 6/6 A challenging hole from yet another elevated tee box. Trees guard both sides of the hole. The green is the true defense of this hole though as it offers a two leveled putting surface as well as bunkers on both the front left and ride side to punish errant shots.
HOLE 8
Slide thumbnail
9 Par 5 Hcp 8/8 Many golfers consider this to be a breather hole. It can reward those fortunate enough to hit to good shots. However, should you hit any shot left, a stream bed penalizes those who are unfortunate enough to hit it there.
HOLE 9
Slide thumbnail
10 Par 4 Hcp 3/3 A very difficult start to the back nine. In fact Bob Haggerty Jr., the golf professional here from 1967-2004 once dubbed 10, 11 and 12 ‘Amen Corner North’. The hazard on the left and the trees lining the right encourage golfers to keep their tee shots right down the middle.
HOLE 10
Slide thumbnail
11 Par 4 Hcp 9/9 This is a risk/reward hole. A driver selection off the tee will require a player to carry their shot 250 yards roughly to cross the pond that sits in front of the green. Most players choose an iron for their tee shot here.
HOLE 11
Slide thumbnail
12 Par 5 Hcp 7/7 Another difficult tee shot which requires accuracy more than anything else. Out of bounds sits on the left while trees line the right. A very large bunker challenges golfers on their approach shot to the green.
HOLE 12
Slide thumbnail
13 Par 3 Hcp 17/17 While short in distance, this hole requires a solidly hit shot to get it close to the hole. Winds generally gust in the players face on breezy days. A bunker guards the right side and will require a skillful shot to get out as the green slopes away from the player.
HOLE 13
Slide thumbnail
14 Par 5 Hcp 1/1 Aptly nicknamed "The Monster", this hole is the longest on the course and one of the longest in the Capital Region. The fairway flows left to right so play your shots towards the left side of this fairway. The green can be tricky with plenty of undulation changes throughout.
HOLE 14
Slide thumbnail
15 Par 3 Hcp 13/13 This is the longest par 3 on the course. Hole #15 very rarely surrenders a birdie due to it’s length.
HOLE 15
Slide thumbnail
16 Par 5 Hcp 5/5 A true test of a tee shot. Many a player in tournament play or enjoying a well played round to this point have felt the pressure as the water hazard seems to invite golfers to hit their tee shots right into it. Many choose to bail out right to play it safe, however, the trees there can block out the second shot. Hit it straight and you will be rewarded.
HOLE 16
Slide thumbnail
17 Par 3 HCOP 15/15 The most scenic hole on the course this par 3 has been called. It also is quite challenging with the water hazard sitting directly to the right of the green and a bunker to the left. There have been plenty of hopes dashed on this hole.
HOLE 17
Slide thumbnail
Golfers have an opportunity to score here as the fairway is rather inviting. A good tee shot will leave most players with a short iron to the green which is ideal for a scoring chance.
HOLE 18
