Golf at Holiday Valley, Ellicottville, New York
A Great Value for Canadians
August 1, 2013, Ellicottville, New York . . . A couple rounds of golf and an overnight stay is a nice respite for busy Canadians, but that little treat can be quite pricey in Southern Ontario. Just over the border in Ellicottville, a golf package at Holiday Valley is a fantastic value with the strong Canadian dollar. For just about the same cost as two rounds of golf at a comparable course, Holiday Valley’s Double Black Diamond golf course offers a two-day package with lodging. The package includes 36 holes of golf with cart, two night’s lodging, continental breakfast, club cleaning and storage, complimentary use of the practice facility and range, and a gift. Lodging is at the lovely course-side Inn at Holiday Valley, a charming and well kept hotel that offers a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna. Each one of the spacious rooms has a patio or balcony with a view of the mountain and the course or the gardens that surround the property. For just a few dollars more, golfers can enjoy the new Tamarack Club Condominium Hotel. The course-side Tamarack offers four star amenities including a pool, hot tubs, fitness room, sauna, underground parking, WiFi and has a full service spa and restaurant on site.
The Double Black Diamond Course at Holiday Valley was recently renovated with the addition of many new tees, new bunkers (including several challenging sod wall bunkers), relocated and improved ponds and other elements that make the course more interesting, more fun and more playable. The improvements have had a few years to mature and the course is in fantastic shape.
“We used the elevations of our mountains to our advantage,” said Steven Carney, Holiday Valley’s Master PGA Professional and Director of Summer Programs. “The redesigned course provides better tees and beautiful views of the surrounding area. We’ve modernized what we had, and are using the natural aspect of the hillsides to capture a more enjoyable golf experience. Together with the course-side lodging at the Inn at Holiday Valley, the Tamarack Club and the charming Village of Ellicottville, Holiday Valley presents a well rounded golf vacation location.”
In addition to golf, there are plenty of activities at the resort and nearby. Sky High Aerial Park at Holiday Valley is an active outdoor adventure in the treetops. Participants climb ladders, cross bridges, navigate obstacles and glide on zip lines as they travel over the 12 different courses of varying difficulty. Golfers and climbers can relax and refresh at the three pool complex, along with pool side service from John Harvard’s Brew House and the Cabana Bar. Falling Waters Spa inside the Tamarack Club provides massage therapy as well as body and facial treatments. More than 35 miles of mountain biking trails are accessible from Holiday Valley’s property. Visitors can enjoy the abundance of shopping and activities in the Ellicottville area. The Village has many quaint shops and restaurants, day spas and nearby horseback riding. The truly unique Griffis sculpture park is located just north of the resort and a large Amish settlement is a short drive away.
