Located within Troy’s historic 247-acre Frear Park, the course is one of the crown jewels of the city’s recreational facilities. Originally designed as a nine-hole course which opened in 1931, the course was expanded to 18 holes in 1964, designed by Robert Trent Jones, one of the game’s greatest course architects. Enjoyed by thousands of players each year, Frear Park remains a great attraction for local golfers, with twenty-seven established leagues and over 46,000 rounds of golf played annually.
