Malone Golf Club - East Course


The East Course (Par 72) has a dynamite front nine originally designed by Donald Ross and Willard G Wilkinson in the 1930s. A 1991 Golf Week Magazine article rated it the "Best Pure Classic Nine" in the world and said it "includes a fabulous Redan, a roller coaster short par-five, and pure-links style bunkering".

Malone Golf Club - East Course

Hole five on the front is every golfers personal favorite. It is a tree-lined par five dogleg to the right. The tee shot must carry a deep gully, and land high on the left side of the fairway. The rolling fairway slopes steeply to the right, carrying poorly hit balls into the woods, and the approach shot is to a postage-stamp green well bunkered by sand traps in front and sharp drop-offs to the back and left.

The back nine is a testament to Robert Trent Jones design with 90-foot drops from tee to greens and 150-yard carries over spring fed ponds. The par five 10th is a monster hole that requires both distance and accuracy. The fairway is cut through a stand of towering pine trees, its large undulating green protected by typical Robert Trent Jones configuration of strategically placed sand traps. The par 3 14th is literally breath-taking as the tee is perched high above a small plateau-like green. An Adirondack Life magazine article described it best "If there is golf in heaven, it must be like the East course."
