I am not a golfer (too many lawyers golf; I don't need to add myself to their ranks) but if you do, this is a great article on the beautiful old courses in the Adirondacks:
Not much for stuffiness, golf in the Adirondacks can be quirky and fun:
"... [they] do all seem part of a more innocent golf era. At Cobble Hill, I saw two boys leaving the course on skateboards, with their golf bags slung over their shoulders. That's the spirit of golf I was looking for up in the mountains."
If you live in the Northeast, hop on I-87 north and get yourself some north-woods style summer relaxation, pronto.
