This peaceful setting on the Oswegatchie River takes you back in time, when the Swe-kat-si (black water) tribe used to canoe these waters. The Swe-kat-si name evolved into Oswegatchie. The tribe no longer exists, but the beautiful river still peacefully flows.
This golf hole at Deerfield Golf Club near Ogdensburg, New York has been created to forever capture this historical setting of serenity by Pat O’Donnell, golf professional and a golf course designer who believes in creating golf holes using the natural lay of the land. This hole follows the Oswegatchie around one of its gentle turns, so the golfer feels he is looking over a lake, not a river.
