Golf Canandaigua Style: Part 3

Reservoir Creek Golf Club: Where the Locals Play

Naples, the charming village located at the southern end of Canandaigua Lake, is home to this local gem featuring considerable elevation change, stunning vistas, and challenging golf. Not a long test, Reservoir Creek is a shot maker’s dream. The course opens with a short par 4 playing uphill to a three tiered green site. Climbing up the mountain the course plays through wooded valleys and over a lush table land until reaching the high point on the tee of hole five. This short par 4 commands spectacular views of the entire area and the surrounding peaks. Hole six is a devilish par 3 playing over a pond to a hillside green filled with slope. The finish on the front side is a precision par 4 playing downhill 392 yards through a chute of trees guarded by OB on the right.


The back begins with another precision hole, a par 4 playing 368 yards. The 10th has a narrow fairway framed by a steep hill side right and a steep fall off on the left. Down the middle is the only option here. Hole 11 is a brute of a par 3 playing uphill to a tricky sloped green. Twelve, another par 4 playing uphill requires two mighty whacks to get home in two to the high perched green. Hole 17 is a downhill par 3 playing to a heavily sloped green protected by a hill on the right. This local favorite is a fun, challenging golf experience. Playing to a Par 71 with yardages between 4950 – 6300 yards, placement and accuracy are the keys to success here. Beautiful mountain views and the small town charm of Naples and the club, make Reservoir Creek a perfect place to spend a day.
