Atunyote Golf Club

Atunyote, an 18-hole layout about two and a half miles from Turning Stone, presents a parkland setting with vast stretches of open space, gently rolling hills, a stream and small waterfalls, and several lakes. The largest body of water, measuring 13 acres, runs along three fairways, including the dramatic finishing hole.

The unforgettable experience begins as soon as guests enter the property. A mile-and-a-half long secluded driveway winds through wooded areas and locales adjacent to the course. The entryway leads to a New England-style clubhouse with a wrap-around porch. Atunyote has its own practice facilities, offering a driving range, short game area and putting green. Atunyote, (pronounced uh-DUNE-yote) is an Oneida Indian word that means “Eagle.”

Hole Par Yards
1 4 398 On this straightaway par 4, a medium to long drive will leave you with a slightly downhill, mid-iron approach shot.  This can be a great birdie opportunity if you avoid the two fairway bunkers guarding the landing area.
2 4 447 This challenging par 4 requires a long tee shot that flirts with the fairway bunkers.  The well guarded green opens up more from the right side.  Be careful of the false front.  Your second shot must be precise.
3 3 198 This strong par 3 is protected by a large bunker on the left side.  Only a very accurate shot will get close to the pin.  The well-contoured green slopes from right to left.
4 4 414 A tee shot to the right center of this fairway will set up a great birdie opportunity.  Be sure to stay clear of the canyon on the left; it runs from tee to green.
5 5 550 This scenic par 5 requires three good shots to set up a birdie opportunity. Favor the right side on the tee shot and second shot to avoid the canyon on the left. Big hitters can reach the green in two, but one mistake can quickly turn a par into a double bogey.
6 3 185 This picturesque par 3 requires a shot that carries all the way to the green.  The false front will prevent any short shots from reaching the putting surface.  Pin placement can make this hole difficult; do not get tempted by a right side pin location.
7 4 433 A left-to-right tee shot works best on this long, dogleg right par 4.  Avoid the large fairway bunker at the corner.  Precise distance control on the approach shot to this deep green is required for you to have any chance at a birdie.
8 5 576 The landing area off the tee is very generous on this straight away par 5.  The second shot however, must be very precise to negotiate the two large trees that frame the fairway.  For all but the longest hitters, this is a three-shot hole.
9 4 479 A long, straight tee shot that avoids the bunkers guarding the landing area is required on this challenging, uphill par 4. The second shot is to a green protected by a deep bunker on the right. Par is a great score here.
10 4 422 This par 4 features the only “forced carry” tee shot on the golf course.  If you avoid the bunker on the left and find the fairway, a mid-iron approach shot remains.  A large bunker completely protects the front of the undulating green; your approach will require a delicate touch.
11 3 230 The longest part 3 on the course is protected on the right by a stream and a greenside bunker.  Favor the left side of this large green as it slopes from left to right toward the water.
12 5 580 This scenic yet demanding par 5 sweeps from left to right. Avoid the large fairway bunkers off the tee. Lay up your second shot to the left side to avoid the lake. Long hitters can be aggressive off the tee and with a solid drive, can get home in two.
13 4 439 On this relatively short par 4, avoid the fairway bunkers that frame the landing area. A simple, mid-to short-iron approach remains. Don’t miss the green however; the bunker left and water right await any mis-hits. This could be a great birdie opportunity.
14 4 410 The stream that runs along the entire left side of this hole will snare any tee shots that stray too far to the left. Be sure to take enough club on your approach shot to carry the stream that protects the front left side of this well-contoured green.
15 4 442 This sweeping dogleg right requires a tee shot that avoids the large fairway bunker left and trees right.  The green is bigger than it appears and only an accurate approach gives you a chance for birdie.
16 3 177 This picturesque par 3 can be deceiving.  Precise distance control to this deep green is required.  The bunkers fronting the green will catch any shots that come up short.  A front pin location makes this hole very difficult.
17 4 478 Length off the tee is required on this long par 4. Avoid the right side fairway bunkers. A good drive will set up a mid-to long iron approach shot to this well-protected green. Par is a good score on this hole.
18 5 624 Atunyote’s longest par 5 requires three great shots. You must negotiate sand left and water right. The landing areas for the tee shot and second shot are generous. The shot to this very undulating green can be tricky. Proper club selection is needed to avoid the large greenside bunkers.
