Holiday Valley Golf

Our New York Golf School host is the Holiday Valley Resort Golf Course, 50 miles south of Buffalo, NY and 2 hrs from Rochester. The course is engaging, with plenty of elevation changes and beautiful vistas, plus large ravines and narrow fairways that require strategic play.

You can stay on-site at the resort on a Golf School Vacation Package, or attend our New York Golf School as a Commuter Student.

Beyond the golf course, visitors can enjoy the beautiful pool complex, fine dining, mountain biking and hiking. The small town flavor of nearby Ellicottville is carefully preserved, with historic homes and buildings, unique restaurants and shops.

“I’d recommend your golf school to anyone looking to improve the quality of their game. It’s also a great way to spend some personal and productive time with clients.” — M. Epstein. Boston, MA
