“Stay and Play”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Just returned from another totally relaxing two night three day stay at Bluff Point Golf Resort. For the passed eight years I have put together a weekend Stay and Play for a group of sixteen couples at Bluff Point. The staff could not be any more helpful and nothing less then professional. The golf course is very well manicured, scenic and challenging, yet golfer friendly. The cabins are very clean with a true Adirondack feel. Nothing more relaxing then sitting around the campfire at night with drinks and laughs, having the whole place to ourselves. This is the perfect place for a golf getaway. My husband and I try to get back up to Bluff Point two to three times a year. Bluff Point is a place you don't want to miss out on.

“Golf was excellent, staff left bit to be desired when booking.”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The golf course was in very good shape, only one hole had wetness issues and fairways and greens were overall in good shape. The staff, while we were there, was also nice and helpful but the main issue was it took us 3 months of waiting to get the place booked. We were hoping to have 10-12 people in the group but each time call were told "the books were not opened". If they are not opened until late June or July when booking August it make things difficult in getting people to take vacation. People in our group had been there before so we we're hoping to be able to make this a regular event, but that did not seam to get those "books" to open. Cabins we stayed in on #6 were clean but did need some mechanical work with pluming. The fire pit outside and charcoal grill were nice. Room service left a little to be desired when it came to picking up our trash we put together from them . In all if your there for the golf, the golf is great, there are no other amenities, i.e no restaurant , beer cart, pool ( though not needed there is small beach on Champlain) so your going 15-20 into Plattsburgh for anything you need. I would go back again for the weekday special if the booking system changes next year, else many other places that might cost a little more but offer more also.

“Great for all golfers!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Bluff Point is a wonderful course with incredible history. Even as a true beginner, I had a super time playing the course. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and really want all patrons to have an excellent experience. If golf isn't the whole crew's focus, there is an awesome dock to enjoy Lake Champlain, and easy access to downtown Plattsburgh. Highly recommend Bluff Point for value, service, and incredible golf.

“Magnificent Golf Experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Golfing like you've not experienced. Most of the front nine holes have a spectacular view of Lake Champlain and the islands, the Green Mountains, and Adirondacks. The golf course is conveniently located and well maintained. On a sunny day the views are a real distraction for the golfer, but the course reminds you to maintain your awareness of where you are. Very pleasant way to spend a splendid summer day in Plattsburgh.
