Turning Stone Wins Prestigious Golf Award
Anyone who has ever played golf at Turning Stone Resort Casino knows our three world-class courses are among the best in the region—if not the nation.
Golfweek magazine knows it too.
All three greens appeared on Golfweek’s most recent annual list of best casino courses in the United States. Leading the charge was our signature course, Atunyote, which climbed four spots to No. 9 from No. 13. Shenendoah was named No. 31 on the list, and Kaluhyat came in at No. 35.
There were 50 casino sources on the list overall; every course on the list is owned or operated by a casino.
The metrics behind the ranking system are complicated. Hundreds of members of Golfweek’s course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 different criteria. Panelists also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings on each course are averaged to produce a final rating for each that is then used to compile the official course rankings.
Miles Blundell, director of golf and recreation, said it was a “true honor” to receive recognition from Golfweek again, and noted that regular recognition from this panel reinforces the investment and resources the Oneida Indian Nation is putting into our golf courses.
“It’s always nice to be recognized by your peers,” Miles said.
Autumn is a popular season for golf at Turning Stone, and Miles noted that he expects courses to be busy. Furthermore, with COVID-19 restrictions being lifted recently, guests can once again enjoy post-golf drinks and snacks in our clubhouses and clubhouse restaurants.
Even if you’ve been out to golf with us in the last few months, it’s high time to book another tee time. Once you do, you can officially tell your friends you’ll be playing the best.
