SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (March 14, 2007) - One of Saratoga National Golf Club\'s owners once likened the course to Scottsdale\'s famed upscale haven, Grayhawk Golf Club.
I know Grayhawk. I played Grayhawk. And you, Saratoga National, are no Grayhawk.
A little harsh? Perhaps. But somebody needs to cut through the overblown accolades accorded this Roger Rulewich designed golf course on an erstwhile horse farm.
New York state\'s late-summer Eden for horse-racing enthusiasts had long needed a high-end public golf course, and it can be argued that since its 2001 opening Saratoga National has filled that niche. What\'s hard to credit is the gushing praise the club\'s received from publications that should know better.
Golf Digest gave Saratoga National four and a half out of five stars, putting it in the company of such great public courses as Troon North and Wolf Creek. Golfweek tabbed it the third best course in New York.
Reading raves like build anticipation for a round at Saratoga National. I teed off fully prepared to be wowed.
