Concord Crest Golf Course is located just a short drive from the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino, just three miles east of the Genesee Rd. exit on 219.  The primary architect for Concord Crest Golf Course was Mother Nature herself, as the layout takes full advantage of wetlands, creeks, ponds, and a stand of old trees. Mature sugar maples that once were harvested for maple syrup, give this venue the feel of a well-cared-for course. The rolling hillside and meandering streams dominate the scenery in this pastoral setting. The New York State Bluebird Society has chosen the course to part of the State wide “Bluebird Trail.” Errant golf shots end up in wetlands, not backyards, as there are few homes and no condominiums to disrupt the view surrounding the course.
