The back nine features the signature par-3 15th hole, a shot to a peninsula green with a long, lake backdrop. Saratoga National Golf Club is most known for its outstanding facilities and service. The 33,000-square-foot clubhouse features a steakhouse and full locker room facilities. Golf carts include GPS, and green fees include range balls and spike replacement in your shoes if you wish.
