WNY’s Best Places to Golf on Father’s Day (Or Any Day)

ThinkStock

Ah, dads and golf – a tale as old as time.

Father’s Day is just a few weeks away. Perhaps dad has suggested a nice little place to go for lunch and bevs or told you about that watch he’s been eyeing. Or maybe he’s not-so-subtly pulled the golf clubs out of the closet, polished them and left them in the middle of the room (OKAY DAD, I GET IT, YOU WANT TO GO GOLFING ON FATHER’S DAY).

If the latter sounds familiar, than load dad and the clubs into the car and head out to one of these Buffalo-area golf courses.
