Binghamton Golf Trip – Traditions at the Glen

Day 3 of the trip to Binghamton took us to Traditions at the Glen. 

Traditions was the greenest and driest course we played up to that day, but the greens had recently been aerated and top dressed which made for a frustrating day on the greens.

The course had a ton of elevation change, cut out from the side of a mountain, almost every tee shot on front 9 was up or down hill, while the back 9 was a little flatter, but a well placed stream gobbles up tee shots on several holes.

Not sure if I would say any particular hole stands out as a signature hole, but 18 is a really great hole, playing 408 uphill/side hill, dog leg left with a blind second shot. Here is a YouTube video with a hole by hole look at the course.

While it was a cold day (the coldest of the trip) it was a sunny day and for the only time of the trip was managed to get in 36 holes.

My first 18 was poor shooting 86 (Par 70) with a whole lot of putts and only 4 pars all day. My second 18 was much better, although still not what I would consider good, shooting 82, only hitting 3 GIRs.
