Burden Lake Country Club is a championship 18 hole, par 71 golf course located in Averill Park, NY (10 miles from Troy and 15 miles from Albany). Built in the 1920"s as part of the famous Totem Lodge Resort the course operates as a semi-private country club.

New Course Layout Completed

Construction of the new Hole on the back nine is complete!  We have placed 60,000 square feet of sod on the fairway and we have seeded the remaining areas. Construction was done on old #13 which will now be the new #10.  The Hole now plays 375 yards from the blue tee, 330 yards from the white tee and 310 yards from the gold/red tees.

You will play the back nine following the same order but starting with old #13 as the new #10, #14 becomes #11, #15 becomes #12, and so on.  Finishing on old #12 as the 18th Hole will be the best part of the layout change.  The old #10, 11 and 12 will be a great finishing stretch.  The old layout finished on back-to-back Par 3's, leaving a slim chance of picking up shots in a match.  Now there will be a lot of opportunities to come from behind and win a match.  We hope you will be as happy with the new layout as we are!
