The Seneca Nation of Indians and Seneca Gaming Corporation are developing one of the most anticipated economic development projects in the region – Seneca Hickory Stick Golf Course.
The Seneca Nation will invest $20 million to develop the project, creating at least 44 new jobs and will bring significant revenue to the Town of Lewiston and the local economy.
To assure the success of Seneca Hickory Stick, the Seneca Nation has selected renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones II to plan the layout for the scenic Par-72 course along side a new club house.
Mr. Jones and his team have designed more than 230 courses, in 38 countries on 6 continents, including, 108 remarkable venues that have hosted World Cups, USGA Championships and PGA Tour Events. Among the signature courses in Jones’ portfolio are Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course, Southern Highlands, and the Kalúhyat Golf Club.
The Seneca Nation of Indians’ goal is to develop a public golf course that will offer not only a level of golf not currently available in the area, but one that stands out as one of the best in New York State and the northeast. This project is expected to attract golf enthusiasts from across the Northeast and Canada, putting Lewiston on the map as a top-level destination.
