Building and designing a golf course takes lots of imagination.
Pete Craig's design of Penfield Country Club (his first) was created on the idea of "Starting with a piece of rugged terrain and coming up with a real plush finished course." Unlike many courses you'll see in the area, Craig wanted to design a course that was walkable for golfers of all ages, so much so that he preferred to walk the grounds frequently to have the perfect idea of how he wanted Penfield Country Club to play.
Other special features of our golf course are two par five dog legs, two ponds that give added risk/reward for all levels of golfer and our greens. Designed with special contours and maintained by our fantastic grounds crew, Penfield Country Club has some of the best greens you will find in the Rochester area; providing a challenging, yet rewarding experience for all those who play.
