Built by the Oneida Indian Nation in upstate New York, Turning Stone has emerged as one of the Northeast’s top resorts, with three exceptional 18-hole courses, each certified by Audubon International. The best choice for women is Shenendoah, a links-style design with wide fairway corridors and open-entry greens. Something shorter? Sandstone Hollow is a superb par-3 course with large fast greens. Rainy day? Turning Stone has a sizable indoor golf center featuring a golf dome and a two-tiered hitting area. Top accommodations are available at the Lodge at Turning Stone, a beautifully-landscaped wood-and-stone hostelry, its spacious patios and balconies overlooking a lovely lake. The spa, called Skana, has a wide range of treatments designed to revitalize body and spirit. The Lodge’s fine-dining restaurant, Wildflowers, promises a memorable culinary experience.
