I Played yesterday in a nice weather. The course has beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline and was in good shape. Customer service was excellent at all levels.

Tee boxes were all level/clean with no issues.

Bunkers were clan and playable. No issues with the carts, as they are fast and comfortable.

Overall, New York Golf Course exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend them!

It was Fathers Day and there was a complimentary pig roast for us at the turn.

There is a practice area with a sand trap, chipping green and a driving range (irons only) while you wait. 3 guys at the bag drop and a starter at the first tee but only one of the three guys at the bag drop seemed to be doing anything and the tee time spacing was erratic. Pace of play was the slowest I’ve encountered all year in NY/NJ (30 plus rounds on 12 courses). Better management at the start and a ranger could’ve made our 5+ hour round much shorter.

Course is in very good condition. The elevation changes on 9 and 10 are challenging. Make sure you walk over to look at the ninth green after you practice putting so you can see pin placement and tiers on the green.

I think the green fees are high compared to other course in the area that are a little better and play faster. When you’re over $100 per round there are better options. Mansion Ridge and River Vale are better options at the same price point.

I paid $60 - cart included - you are not allowed walk the course. The layout is decent but I found it reasonably short even off the back sticks. The whole course was hollotined which was very disappointing and equally disappointing was that there was no mention of this prior to my round. The most annoying thing for me as a good golfer was the pathetic yardage markings throughout the course (some barely visible) and just the 200,150 & 100 on each hole at best. Also the greens have a lot of contours and the pin placements were laughably hard and probably added a half hour to the round for most of the average players. If you’re thinking of giving this place a try I would expect the course condition to be pretty good in a few weeks. Don’t bother attempting to play here on your own it will take forever!

Course layout is interesting to say the least. Hole #9 is a bit quirky, but fun - as the green is severely uphill. Excellent conditioning for early spring, kudo's to the maintenance crew. Greens aeriated and sanded, and although somewhat unsightly, they accepted approach shots and rolled true. Staff was extremely helpful from the bag drop through the pro shop. All were welcoming for this first time visitor. Clean, stately clubhouse with Country Club feel. Would definitely return.

Got a decent deal through Golfnow. Greens were aerated and was full of sand. Not the best time to play. Pace of play was good although it was the weekend (not many ppl playing) but I recommend to wait a few more weeks until the green conditions get better

First time playing this course , The staff and starter was very friendly and accommodating . Showed up a bit early and went right out the pace of play was very good. The course is beautiful and challenging with a number of long par 5's the fairways are pristine and greens in great shape . Is what you would expect at a private club. One of the nicest courses I have played in the area if not the nicest. It is a hidden gem and a must play.
