Otesaga Golf Season Extended To March 31
Those who think that golf is just a summer hobby should hang on to their clubs and get ready to sharpen their skills this winter. The Otesaga Resort Hotel is introducing a state-of-the-art TrackMan indoor golf simulator at its Leatherstocking Golf Course Clubhouse, allowing participants to “play” the resort’s famed course in a whole new way now through March 31.
Golfers can choose from more than 200 golf courses to play virtually, including such legends as Leatherstocking and Pebble Beach. Designed in 1909 by golf course architect Devereux Emmet, the 18-hole Leatherstocking Golf Course offers scenic views of Otsego Lake. The simulator offers the same sloping fairways and serious water hazards of the par-72 course, along with raised “blind” greens for a challenging virtual course.
Interested participants can pick their virtual “tee time” online, 14 days in advance, and can choose times between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. from Wednesdays through Sundays. There is a 48-hour cancellation policy and booking prices start at $40.00 per person. Golf instruction and swing analysis are also available for an additional fee.

Tapped for Service
COOPERSTOWN—The Cooperstown Democratic Committee caucus nominated George Fasanelli (left) and Joe Membrino (right) for reelection to the Cooperstown Village Board of Trustees on Monday, January 30. Current trustee MacGuire Benton has chosen to pursue the position of Otsego County clerk rather than running for reelection. The members of the committee thanked Benton for his four years on the board and for bringing a new generation into Cooperstown government. Similarly, Membrino has been on the board for four years—one year when appointed to fill out the term of former trustee Lou Allstadt and three years from his first elected term. The Cooperstown Village Board of Trustees election will be held from noon to 9 p.m. on March 21 at the Cooperstown Fire Department, 24 Chestnut Street.
