I joined Ballston Spa Country Club four years ago primarily for the great location…… I stay there for not only the great location, the great golf opportunities and the meticulously manicured course, but more importantly for the GREAT people.
I joined Ballston Spa as a single and everyone there has gone out of their way to insure that I am always playing and meeting people. And now I stay there, for the great friendships I have gotten from being a member there.
My experience at Ballston Spa Country Club has far exceeded my expectations, athletically and socially. I cannot say enough about the people at Ballston Spa Country Club. They are sincerely interested in making sure you enjoy not only your golf but each other at the course. All the members have welcomed me with open arms and have gone out of their way to make sure the great experience continues.
One of the best features of the course is that both the men and the women have great relationships and encourage mixed play as much as possible. This gives everyone a chance to make sure they meet and get to know everyone. The women players and golf professionals at BSCC are the best in the area, which really gives the women members a chance to improve their play.
Without a doubt, whenever I get a chance, I rave about Ballston Spa Country Club and encourage people to join and get involved in this experience. I sincerely believe people who currently are not members are truly missing out. It’s a unique opportunity to upgrade your golf, your friendships and your lifestyle….all in one!

Ballston Spa Country Club has been my golf home for over 20 years. I joined partly because there were no playing restrictions based on gender or a requirement that a husband or wife decide who the primary member is. The members welcomed me with open arms and I quickly felt part of a group of individuals who, despite varying levels of ability, are clearly a family. An added benefit has been the opportunity to participate in tournaments at other area courses through membership in the Northeastern Women’s Golf Association (NEWGA). I love meeting and competing against other players in the many NEWGA events and club invitational’s in the Capital District. I can’t put a value on the lifelong friendships and memories I have made since I joined Ballston Spa CC…they are priceless.

I have been a member of Ballston Spa Country Club for about 35 years and have enjoyed every summer at the course. I can honestly say the golf course has practiced continuous improvement over that time period and I fully expect that it will continue on that course. We have seen regular improvements to the club house, major investment in the golf course and recruitment of excellent staff for the course, pro shop and restaurant. We have had dedicated board members and officers who have given countless hours to support and improve the organization. It truly has been a home away from home for many, many members over the decades and has fostered more friendships than one can count.
When I first joined the golf course, we had fairway and woods, with virtually no rough. We had rainbird sprinklers for irrigation and in mid to late summer one could hit the ball and have it roll forever, of course, it didn’t necessarily roll straight! But even so, we had wonderful tournaments and camaraderie. We now have a beautifully manicured golf course with lush fairways, approach areas and greens. Our rough is well maintained, nicely defines our golf holes and presents a challenge to the player. We have our own “Amen Corner” where the goal is simply to put the ball in play off the tee and to keep it below the hole on the greens. Seems easy enough, but somehow it is not and that is the challenge that so many of us enjoy each and every time out. And we still have a varied and exciting tournament schedule that has been adapted over time and continue to enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of new and veteran members alike.
If you are interested in a challenge for your golf game, an open and inviting group of friends and a wonderful restaurant for your relaxation, come see us at Ballston Spa Country Club. We would love to have you join us for a round of golf where you can judge for yourself.

I joined Ballston Spa Country Club in the spring of 2007, after moving to Saratoga Springs the previous summer. I choose BSCC in part because I enjoyed the beauty of the course and appreciated what clearly was the dedicated work of a skilled grounds crew. But most importantly, I chose BSCC because of the wonderful group of people there. The Women’s League and a variety of tournaments made it easy and fun to get to know people – people with careers, people who are retired, people who love their golf, people who have since become friends on the course and in the clubhouse. BSCC is a great place to belong!
