Double Black Diamond Golf at Holiday Valley
Ellicottville, New York, April 18, 2012 . . . Holiday Valley’s Double Black Diamond golf course offers a wonderful deal for Canadian golfers. It’s a two-day package with lodging that 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.

For just a few dollars more, golfers can enjoy the new Tamarack Club Condominium Hotel.

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. The new 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 eight different courses of varying difficulty.

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.
