Whiteface Club: GOLF & TENNIS (within short walking distance)

Ranked #6 in New York State by Golf Weekly — March, 2005

Experience the beauty and challenge of one of this Country’s oldest golf courses, steeped in over 100 years of rich history. Originally built in 1898, the course was redesigned by noted architect, John Van Kleek, who benefited from the consultation of World Champion Walter Hagen.

With the Adirondack Mountains and pristine Lake Placid as its backdrop, the artistically designed course offers novices and pros alike a rewarding day. Its trademark clover leaf designed greens and bunkers illustrate the meticulous attention to details the architect provided.

The Whiteface Club & Resort golf house and pro shop offer a wide variety of quality golfing products. Join us on the covered deck overlooking the putting green and first hole for a casual lunch or beverage, or one of a variety of golf tournaments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another wonderful experience at Camp Bearberry. All the amenities of home plus scenic Lake Placid as our backdrop. The porch was the family focal point and everyone commented on the cosiness of the beds. For a few of us, this was our second enjoyable trip. Thanks again, Camp Bearberry.

Perfect Rental for a Whiteface Club Wedding

  • 5 of 5
My family rented Camp Bearberry for a week before and during our daughter's wedding at the Whiteface Club and Resort. The house, its location and accommodations could not have been more perfect for the occasion. The house is located on the shore of Lake Placid. We loved swimming off the dock; the wedding party photos on the lawn were gorgeous; the groomsmen walked from the house to the wedding garden; and the parents walked home after the wedding at the Whiteface Club. The house provides ample space for group gatherings in the living room, dining room, and lovely screened porch, and a nicely-appointed bathroom for every bedroom (critical for a wedding!). The house is beautifully furnished with interesting Adirondack antiques, and is well-furnished for cooking and entertaining. Owners Kathie and Gary Smith were wonderfully welcoming, and so helpful. We totally loved our stay at Camp Bearberry!
