Our History, Minutes from Lake George and Saratoga Springs.
 
Years ago what is now Airway Meadows Golf Course consisted of a family beef cattle farm and a small privately owned public airport, both owned by Joan and James Heber. The Heber’s primary business was Heber Excavating with the farm and airport operated mainly as hobbies due to their love of agriculture and flying.

In 1997 a seed of an idea was planted as James (Jayme) was flying over his property one day. That seed was nourished over the next few months and soon grew into a design for an 18 hole public championship golf course integrated into and around the existing farm land and airport. The course promised to be both unique and beautiful and the final product has exceeded all expectations.


Although no longer with us, our dog Jasmine will
remain an important part of our history.
 
January of 1998 found the Heber’s utilizing their excavating equipment for a new purpose – turning a dream into reality. By mid 1999 the 18 hole golf course and clubhouse were open for business. Each year has seen improvements to the course including the addition of the “Tunnel of Love”, an actual tunnel built under the airport runway to shorten the walk between holes.

Airway Meadows Golf Course is unique in many ways including the runway for planes between the second and eighth fairways. The airfield is also the home of “Saratoga Skydiving” and most days golfers will see not only planes taking off and landing but can watch skydivers floating gracefully to a landing at the bend of the eighth fairway dogleg. The airport also offers a great opportunity for pilots to fly in and play.

The course has many ponds, creeks, and ravines traversed by New England style covered bridges for riders and walkers as they journey around the course. On several holes the farm’s beef cattle provide a spectator’s gallery for those who enjoy being watched but get nervous in front of a human audience.

The greatest pride of Joan and Jayme is the superb conditions at Airway Meadows. This is due in large part to the excellent irrigation system and the skills of course superintendent, Jacob Heber. Airway Meadows G.C. is consistently rated as having the best conditions in the area and was recently awarded a four and a half star rating out of five by the readership of Golf Digest magazine for 2008/2009. You can find information in their “Best Places to Play by Golf Digest 2009.

In addition to a great golf course and driving range with all grass tee, Airway Meadows offers a clubhouse with lockers and showers and facilities to handle meals for any size outing. For information they may be contacted at 518-792-4144. Minutes from Lake George and Saratoga Springs.
