Turning Stone Resort, Atunyote

Three championship courses, an excellent hotel and casino gaming? As a summer destination, situated 40 minutes east of Syracuse, Turning Stone is hard to beat. Start with the exclusive Tom Fazio-designed Atunyote, a superbly conditioned, risk/reward funfest that played host to the PGA Tour from 2006-2010, toss in the low-profile Shenendoah, a Rick Smith creation, its fairways framed by wispy fescue grasses and add in the toughest track of all, Kaluhyat, the handiwork of Robert Trent Jones Jr. and you have a triple play that’s as welcome as three ‘7s’ in a Turning Stone casino slot machine.
