The Course

Members and guests enjoy the 18-hole golf course at the Corning Country Club for its excellent condition and interesting layout. Golfers find the compact layout easy to walk and often prefer walking over using riding carts that are available at the Pro Shop.

 

Players find the course a good test of golfing ability because of tight fairways, changes in elevation and small, undulating greens. Fairway traps and greenside bunkers are strategically placed to challenge the player's skill.

 

Weather permitting, the course is open for play year round – although the tees and greens are closed to play during the winter months.

 

John Hoyle, Golf Course Superintendent, and his staff welcome you to the Corning Country Club and welcome your feedback to assist them in their efforts toward continuous improvement of the golf course and grounds.

LPGA Tour

The LPGA Corning Classic was an annual golf tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour.  It took place every year from 1979 through 2009 at the Corning Country Club in Corning, New York.

 

It was one of the longest running tournaments on the LPGA Tour and the longest with a single sponsor. The title sponsor since the beginning was Corning Incorporated, an American manufacturer of glass, ceramics and related materials, primarily for industrial and scientific applications.

 

Production and operation of the tournament was a large community effort by the citizens of Corning. As with most tournaments on the LPGA Tour, proceeds went to charity. Beneficiaries of the Corning Classic were local hospitals and camps for disabled children. Net charitable proceeds since 1979 exceeded $5 million.

 

While this famous LPGA tournament is no longer held, proceeds for the LPGA Corning Classic exceeded 3.8 million dollars since it's debut at the Corning Country Club in 1979.

 

An exciting note from the history of the LPGA is that from 1985 to 1988 four players won their second career tournament right here at the Corning Country Club.  They were Patti Rizo, Laurie Rinker-Graham, Cindi Rarick, and Sherri Turner.
