IMPORTANT CLOSING ANNOUNCEMENT
May 15, 2020
Dear Bristol Harbour Patrons,
In 2016, our family bought Bristol Harbour with the sincere intention of enhancing our Finger Lakes community. The past four years have been an incredible journey, as we have enjoyed the challenge of taking on a new business, renovating it, and getting to know our dedicated employees and patrons. It has been both challenging and rewarding to see our whole family, including our kids and their significant others, pitch in for late nights bartending, hosting, or clearing tables in order to make Bristol Harbour succeed. It has truly been a passion project for our family and a challenge we have loved taking on.
The COVID-19 Crisis has brought to light incredible challenges for the hospitality industry, including Bristol Harbour. We have faced the dilemma of how to operate a business designed to bring people together, in a time when it is our social responsibility to stay a part.
With much careful consideration, we have decided to close Bristol Harbour. This announcement comes as the result of our family’s dedication to transparency, as we want to ensure that our guests and employees are safe and healthy. Please know, the decision to prioritize the health and safety of our guests and employees over our business operations was made with the utmost care, concern, and due diligence. As a family run business, we cannot separate our family values from our business operations. As a result, we feel it is our ethical duty to be a solution in preventing the spread, despite the implications and sacrifices we must make to uphold this significant responsibility.
Under the current restrictions for golf course use, our golf course will remain open to members only until further notice for the remainder of the 2020 season. Following the 2020 golf season, the course will be closed to the public. We thank you all for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.
We recognize that Bristol Harbour is an incredibly special place, and while its commercial operations are not conducive to the world we presently live in, we are committed to breathing new life into our beloved property. Our family will continue to maintain Bristol Harbour’s incredible beauty and we look forward to transforming it into a personal property for our family to continue to share in many good memories to come.
From our family to yours, we wish you all the best.
Todd and Laura Cook

Our course will challenge players of any skill level. The 6,700-yard golf course was designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones in 1972. The 18-hole course is well known for its championship layout, and for the amazing views of Canandaigua Lake and surrounding hillsides. Enjoy open views of the lake as you tee off and play through the front nine holes. Then tackle the back nine surrounded by woods and the beautiful scenery of the Bristol Hills.
Since 2016, we’ve made many improvements to our course for better playability, including paved golf cart paths, a fleet of 75 electric golf carts with GPS, and the addition of forward tees to make our course friendlier for golfers of all abilities.
New improvements in 2017 include restoration of our bunkers with new sand, improved drainage, and restoration of the front nine to a true links-style course. Come experience the improvements and enjoy the most exciting round of golf in the Finger Lakes!
