Skaneateles Country Club is a private family-oriented country club with eighteen beautiful manicured fairways and greens.
Founded in 1915, Skaneateles Country Club is nestled on the shores of beautiful Skaneateles Lake, in the heart of Central New York's renowned Finger Lakes. With its crystal clear water, striking views and wonderful small town charm, Skaneateles, has long been a favorite vacation and getaway spot for everyone from U.S. Presidents to your family. Many positive changes have taken place since the day when eight men of foresight came together to create Skaneateles Country Club. Today it is a thriving, vibrant club with a diverse membership. Its lakeside setting, beautiful facilities and friendly members and employees create a truly winning combination.
