Pinnacle State Park Golf Course first opened for play in 1969. The course was designed by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Bill Robinson.
Pinnacle State Park has great views and vistas, including the Canisteo River Valley, Harris Hill and the village of Addison. The park is known for its challenging 9-hole golf course. This is but one of the New York State Park System's 29 golf courses. From the famed Bethpage Black, home to the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Golf Championship, to the rolling terrain of the Robert Trent Jones' designed 18-hole course at Green Lakes State Park, New York's 29 state park golf courses rank among the best public courses in the world.
Pinnacle State Park Golf Course was built on a magnificent parcel of land, with rolling terrain that rises from the Canisteo River which is 980 feet above sea level, to the top of Orr Hill which is 1,725 feet above sea level. The clubhouse was built on top of Orr Hill to take advantage of the spectacular view.
Although this is a 9-hole course, white and blue tee markers are alternated to provide an 18-hole challenge. Pinnacle State Park Golf Club plays to a 9-hole distance of 3,259 yards and a 9-hole par of 36. The course rating is 71.8 and a slope rating of 122.
