Look, you don't think the Yahnie could get top flight people running food and beverage and that kitchen? They could. They. Don't. Want. To. Pay.

It's a big gossip pit where the people your dining with are backstabbing you before you've even left. If you want to see the dysfunction that exists amongst the so-called pillars of the community, that's the place to go. Your crack habit will pale in comparison to some people's problems and you'll realize just how good you have it!

Minor problems previously mentioned are being improved upon. Chef is the best they have had in years. Look to jealousy as the genesis of most of these objections.

you are correct. the guy was initially charged with nearly 50 counts and ended up paying something like 5M and got 5 years probation. they also run valley view under the mother's name and renewed with the city just recently. the attorney's first name was ken and he was from barneveld. he died a couple of years ago. just to compare how corrupt the system is...some 19 year old kid painted graffitii on some building and got 6 months in jail. go figure...

Was there for a golf tournament, reminded me of a union hall. What a dump -- compared to other clubs in bigger cities like Buffalo or Rochester. Food sucked. It was horrible.

Its filled with small town attitude, the course is OK but not even close to, as an example, the East Course at Oak Hill CC (that hosts Ryder Cup and PGA events).

Overall, I was unimpressed with the clubhouse, course and people.

Ralph is obviously an angry person. if you feel good about yourself, you will enjoy the Yahni; the food is excellant. The golf is the best in the area. The people are a microcosim of what you find everywhere.

It's a little too ethnic for me.

How does feeling good about yourself enhance your experience there. The place is a dump compared to other private clubs. That's a fact.

And the food is no up to the highest standards. It was slop when I was there a year ago.

If you're a golfer it's a great course and worth the dues. The food is not good, and the social aspect isn't the best . I love the course and that's why I'm a member

I think Ralph is pretty spot on. Remember, the best Utica has to offer is not considered the best in other regions! I have never had anything other than a so-so meal there, even 20 years ago. In recent years the membership has dwindled causing them to be less restrictive to cover expenses. Golf is good but many would rather not join and play as many different places as possible in a summer. Only those who need the networking for their occupation or enjoy being part of an 'exclusive' club are there. To each his own.

Here's the deal, I used to work there. The place was still a good place in the 90's and the food wasn't too bad. The place really took a turn for the worse when they let in the union people who brought in a lot of undesirables with them. Not all of the undesirables quit or were thrown out when people went to jail, some of them got away with it by being rats and they stayed and eventually got control of the place. It figures that the place has gone downhill and by the way, the guys that stayed were cheapskates and terrible tippers. No wonder why they say that they were taking advantage of the other members.

You nailed it. Due to many of the current members, it has gone downhill significantly. It's a "yous guys" environment.

As a club, for Utica it is great... but it doesn't compare with many of the upscale clubs in the Rochester, Westchester and Long Island.

I had dinner there about two weeks ago, and it was not restaurant quality. Plus, the service was mediocre.

So who are the rats that are still there?

The Yahnundahsis is a very well run establishment. They have had their ups and downs but the last meal I had there was very tasty. The only complaint I had was that the bar was too brightly lit and their bar tender was slow. The course is fantastic and so are the members. Anyone that is talking down about it obviously doesn't frequent the establishment.

It is a mindset about who you are and how you fit in. Your remarks prove you have NEVER been there.
If it makes you feel good to denegrate the place, that's your problem.
You might feel more at home if you went to Uncle's in NYM.
