Cold rainy day but had a great time.

Played the course with possibility of rain. Only had few drizzles during 1st 5 holes. In preparation for the winter, the greens were very very slow. Tee boxes needed attention since they were sloping and uneven. We played through the rain and puddles and cold. Only few players were left on the course. Stopped by the clubhouse after 9 holes. No one was attending the bar/cafe. Self coffee was either all out or cold. Watched Masters until the rain slowed down. When we finished the round around 4pm, the club house and pro shops were all closed. However, golf cart attendant was nice enough to wait for us to finish.

Thank you for your comments. We had a few rainy days this past week. We were fortunate enough to keep the course open but to due to the bad weather and low turnout we kept the grill room closed for the day. The clubhouse however offering restroom facilities is always available until the last guest leaves.
We hope to see you up at the club again soon,

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

Played a rd this Sunday. Took 5.5 hrs. This was on top of a 2/2.5 hr frost delay. So, spent 7.5 hrs at the course. With such a delay, you'd think they'd pay more attention to pace of play... but no attention paid at all... We were the 5th group out for the day and still took us 5.5 hrs. Only 2 in our group ended up finishing and other 2 had to bail on 15th because of how long it was taking. The group ahead of us played very slow (bad golfers playing from the tips and not ready golf w/ at least 1 hole open in front of them by the 4th hole), but no rangers on the course or someone at the turn to speed them up. We waited at least 5 mins at the tee box and on the fairway every single hole. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! What a waste of money and my Sunday morning...

btd13, Thank you for your comments. Yesterday, 10/18/20 we unfortunately required a 1hour 35 minute frost delay. The longest delay the club had ever experienced. The delay was necessary to preserve the wonderful course conditions that we have all enjoyed all season long. We did our best in getting everyone out in an orderly and immediate way.
Pace of play at the NYCC is our highest priority. The average pace of play at NYCC under normal conditions is 4 hours and 20 minutes. Yesterday was not your average day. We do have rangers on the course moving play along everyday as we did yesterday.
I do hope that you will play the New York Country Club again soon, your next experience will exceed all of your expectations!
Sincerely, NYCC Management,

Great condition, layout, and greens

Fantastic condition and challenging. Great value for the price and only 50 minutes outside the city. Lightyears better than any of the public courses surrounding NYC. Highly recommend

Tricked Up Greens

I first played this course a number of years ago, and it was in terrible shape. It would have been robbery at any price back then, but certainly at the rates they were charging. Based on speaking with the starter this past round, they hired a new greenskeeper shortly after my last round there, and he truly turned this place around. The conditions are now very good, and much more in line with the rates they are charging.

The staff is very friendly and attentive from the moment you pull up at the bag drop.

The course is a great layout. Lots of fun and unique holes. 1, 9, 10, 18, which all play up to or down from the clubhouse, the highest point on the property, are certainly the most memorable, but other holes similarly do not disappoint. 2, 5, & 17 stand out.

My only gripe, and it's a big one, are the greens. They were in great shape, and rolled very fast, which I usually like. But in this instance, the combination of the green speed, with the severe slopes on every green, and pins cut in incredibly difficult locations on the severe slopes was just incredibly unfair. For instance, on 17 my tee shot was on a line, but landed 10 feet past the hole, so I was putting back down the hill. In so doing, I barely tapped the ball, and it raced 6 feet by. Fine, I was above the hole, punish me. On the come-backer, up hill, my put rolled a few inches past the hole, as I just barely missed right (poor line, again, my fault), and the ball rolled a full foot and a half back below the hole. That is complete and utter nonsense. There were several other examples, but that's the one that really popped my blood vessel since I missed the par (mostly my fault) and because of the accumulation of the extremeness of the greens over the course of the round. The course really needs to be more careful as to where they place pins to ensure they are fairer to players, as opposed to in locations that are almost impossible to hole out.
