|Course Improvements on our Glens Falls ,Lake George,
Saratoga Golf Course
In 2015 - Trees to the right of
the #3 Red/Gold Tee Box were cut a distance back. This
clears the way for the Blue & White tee shots. This will
likely result in healthier grass on the Red/Gold Tee Box
too. Drainage lines were improved on a few tee boxes,
Large tree on the left of #1 fairway dogleg near #8
green was cut back so as to make a clear shot down the
fairway if your shot is a little left. Result will be
fewer lost balls and play should speed up. On #18 Gold
Tee Box area we removed a tree that was in the way for a
better shot down the fairway. Only one, we have to
protect golfers on #10 fairway. Brushog clearing work
was done between #18 White Tee Box and the fairway.
Hopefully this will help a bit to provide a clearer view
of the fairway.
In 2014 The grounds crew
finished the season with some rebuilding of the #10
green where members were saying their ball would get
caught and putting from there was difficult. They also
finished the new #14 Menís tee box.
In 2013 In the fall a new
Red/Gold Tee Box was built on #13 to offer a better view
down the fairway. Construction begin on the new #14
Men's tee box.
2012 golf season four more cart paths were
paved stopping wash outs and stopping the dust, drainage
and new sod installed on #16 fairway, New women's Red
tee box built on #18 offering an improved angle into the
green, reconstructed #2 Men's White tee box
In the 2011
golf season more cart path paving was completed, sod
work and clearing, infrastructure work
In the 2010
golf season Removal of Large Tree at #1 Green (tree was
in dangerous condition) New bridge installed to Driving
Range, Substantial landscaping & new stairs to #7 Green,
Landscaping barrier planted behind #9 green, Bushes
planted behind #11 Tee
New in 2005:A Tee Box has been built for new red and gold tees on #8 close to the tip of the fairway. A new tee box
was also built for the red tees on #11 shortening this hole to 90 yards from the reds. New cart paths
have been built for #1 and #3 making the paths less steep. Construction of a new cart path on #18 down
to the bridge is slated to be finished in the spring of 2006.
Airway Meadows G.C. is constantly improving conditions and layout of our Upstate New York golf course.
Opened in 1999, it will never really be "done". There is always a new idea to speed play or
to assist golfers to have a smooth favorable round of golf. Annually, course improvements will
be updated here.
#1 Green Area Improvements completed in the Fall of 2004
The left side of the #1 green area of the golf course was cleared of brush. Grass seed was planted
providing an additional 30 feet of rough to the left of the new cart path. Close to the green on
the hill, new sod was planted to offer immediate use and to offer a completed look. This provides
an additional 20 feet to the new cart path. In all 50 feet of new landing area. It now can
support any errant shots that are hit too far left and should help the golfer be less hesitant to
aim their shot at the green directly and have less worry about hitting #10 green area. Also, the
cart path was moved winding down to the left further then turning down and around to the Brooklyn
Bridge. The path has a gradual slope making it easier to manage with a motorized cart. These
improvements should improve pace of play
#11 Green and Tee May 15, 2005
Airway Meadows Golf Course announces that the newly expanded #11 Green area is scheduled to open
by the end of May. Over 1,000 square feet has been added to the green along with a new drainage
system. Golfer feed back to date has been excellent. No temporary greens were used during the
project. The original green has been in use the entire time.
#6 Women's Tee
This new raised tee box was opened for use in late fall of 2004.
#10 Green Area
A brush clearing project began in 2004 and plans are to complete it in 2005. This will
help the golfer find their ball if hit to the right of #10 Green and therefore increase
pace of play. The #10 Green is performing nicely since it was improved in fall of
2003 and in use in spring 2004.
Hole # 10 Green Reconstruction
| #10 green 2015

"What a difference these improvements have made for your golf game!
Airway Meadows is a much difference course than it was when we opened
our doors in 1999."
