The Links at Hiawatha Landing sits along the banks of the Susquehanna River, nestled between the Finger Lakes and the Catskill Mountains. It's one of New York's premier upscale public golf courses. Despite the name, the course has more of a heathland layout than a true links course since it lacks the seaside location that is the cornerstone of traditional Scottish links golf courses. The design still has many links features though including windswept sand bunkers. The rolling terrain provides a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic and the tall grasses make accuracy a necessity. Water comes into play on seven holes but there aren't any forced carries or blind shots, making the golf course approachable for even high handicappers. The Links at Hiawatha Landing finishes with a challenging par 5 that doglegs left around a large pond.

The Links

I have played the Links a number of times. It is challenging and fun. You have to stay in the fairway and chip out of the heather. So place your shots.

Not as nice as it once was

Visiting the area for first time in many years. I was very excited to play the links. I was disappointed that the course has seemed to see better days

Very nice

I played this course a very long time ago and decided to play it again. The course is very nice with quick greens with a lot of breaks that you can't see. If you get a chance to play here, do it. You will not be disappointed. We drove 4 hrs to play here.

A pleasure the second time around.

This was our second visit this summer to Hiawatha, we were paired up with another couple, we had a great round, the course was in very good condition for late August, especially with the heat and lack of rain in the area this summer. We willing be back.

Flat / walkable / Fair

Enjoyable walk, very good condition, sand a little dirty with pebbles and driving range grass (weedy) not representative of much better fairway/ rough grasses on course. Good value with Hot Deals!

Course is nice and in good shape

I’m a local near The Links At Hiawatha so i have played here many many times. Course is well maintained, greens are very nice along with the fairways. Very much one of the nicest courses in our area. Plan to play there i’m sure many more times.

Course is in great shape!

I've played this course periodically over the last 25 years and it is quite possibly in the best condition I've ever seen it! The fairways are lush and the greens are in tremendous shape. This is a fun course with a variety of challenging holes. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone in the area.

Greens off

2nd time I played course loved it 1st time that’s why I came back. Group I brought with me were not impressed. Greens were not up to par because they were sanded recently and were not good to put on. I had called ahead before planning golf trip but no mention of this. I still like this course but don’t think my friends will be back. Good greens are very important. Maintenance has to be done but customers need to be informed

The course Is beautiful

The course was beautiful and the staff were great. Some courses locally are real uptight about pace of play but not Hiawatha. The only downside was we booked a tee time for 2 people and once we got to the course to check in, we were told we would be paired with another 2 some. If we had known this prior to our tee time, we wouldn’t have brought another 2 golfers we knew. We understand the course needs to make as much money per tee time as possible, it just won puisne have been nice to know that was going to be the situation. We will be back to play Hiawatha again many times in the future.
