I have been fortunate to play this 9 hole course for over 20 years as my wife's family has a place at Point Chautauqua. I have attempted to figure out the history, I have even contacted the Olmsted Archives as the Point was created by FLO but have failed to figure out who created the course. What really matters to me is that it always stays a golf course as it is a great spot to settle who will make drinks before dinner. It is also the first 9 holes my twin daughters ever played.
In an ideal world I would own this course someday and make changes to make it even more enjoyable/playable. I will post the entire routing below and encourage your input to how to make this small, severely sloped piece of property an even better course. I will post some ground views as well to show some of the unique features/holes. Feel free to submit possible routings, ideas to improve a couple holes or whatever you want to do to make this piece of property more special.
My two favorite holes are 6 and 8. Hole 6 has O.B. on the left side but the greatest feature of this hole is the green complex. It is tucked into a slope that runs away from the fairway. Below are photos from the approach and from behind the green.
I love how this green sits on the land.
Hole 8 is the signature hole and in my opinion could stand for some tree clearance. However, it is still exciting to hit right at the lake with a major elevation change.
If you want to see other holes, I have photos of all the holes.
Here is the routing with holes and then one with only the elevations. Have fun.
