Junior Golf Alliance of NY

Eagle Crest Open for Business


Like most Capital Area golf courses, Eagle Crest opened early this season. With the mild winter, there wasn’t much of an off-season anyway.

So in March, as golfers started to show regularly, Eagle Crest owner Bill Paulsen, Jr. had a brief conversation with his assistant pro Scott Battiste, who had just won the NENY PGA Assistant Pro of the Year.



Orchard Creek makes some new changes for 2016 season.


Architect Paul Cowley was in town last fall and decided to add 2 new bunkers on hole #5. Paul thought the fifth hole was a little weak on the right side and wanted to give golfers some added challenges. The bunkers should speed up play keeping golfers out of the orchards looking for balls. We also added more drainage and irrigation.
