Good challenge. Off fairway areas need clean up. Too much debris, mostly beer cans, lying about. Fairways could be trimmed as well as tee boxes. Greens need to be rolled.
Lack of maintenance and on course amenities hurt overall rating.

They should pay us to play this course

Absolutely abysmal. I’m not sure if American golf still runs this course, but it is horrible as is Dyker and Latourette. COVID is not excuse, because many other courses in the area have managed to keep their courses in decent playability.

To call this a golf course is a joke.

This course in now the worst I have ever seen. The bunkers are all mud with weeds growing out of them. The greens have weeds growing out of them also. The fairways have large dirt patches all over on every fairway. The rough is wild with weeds everywhere. They have the nerve to charge players full rates. It is not worth $10 to play there. It's horrible!! This dump is controlled by American Golf unfortunately.

Not With the Money

I have never seen a course in such bad shape. I mean crabgrass everywhere, some green aerated with sloppy sand distributed unevenly. The best however were the sand traps...no sand and weeds growing everywhere. Oh yeah the tee boxes I'd say 80 % no grass and those that had grass you guessed it crabgrass. I played here a couple if years ago and it was in much better shape. STAY CLEAR until they put some work into this course!

This course needs work.

The course was neglected for quite some time and it showed. The sand traps were like concrete. The greens were in need of care. There were trees that were down.

Absolutely trash, don't waste your money

I have been playing here for 5 years and go to numerous outings here every year. They let covid completely destroy their course. Every green was destroyed and some even had sand poured all over them. It was 95 degrees out and they had no food or water available. They had no problem keeping their pro shop open though. I wouldn't pay $10 to play here nevermind the $50 they had the stones to charge me. Go to silver lake, they actually give a crap about their course, it's immaculate. DO NOT SPEND MONEY HERE ITS IN SHAMBLES AND I WOULDN'T EVEN CALL IT A COURSE.

This course is in the absolute worst condition I’ve ever seen. Tee boxes are not leveled and are basically just hard dirt. If you hit the fairway don’t get excited you were better off hitting it in the rough 40 yards to the right. Wasps everywhere and the bunkers are cement with weeds growing out of them

Worst course ever played on

Let’s start this off by saying this is top 2 worst golf courses in New York and La Tourette is included in that top 2. Hit your ball in the fairway... you’re better off in the rough you will probably get a better lie. If I could upload the picture to this review (it won’t upload) you would think the ball landed on a construction site, not on a fairway. Hit your ball in the rough? Good luck finding it as the grass is completely overgrown, covered in branches and dead leaves. Sand traps are concrete bee traps. Once you reach the greens they are covered with divots and equivalent to putting on a bed of gravel. Very sad cause this used to be a well maintained course. If I ever play here again it’s because someone is paying me to play there. For all of this, they are charging around $70 for a tee time. Disrespectful

Never coming back

First time playing here. When I paid $75/round I expected an above average course and couldn’t have been more wrong. I’ve never seen a course where the tee boxes where uneven dirt patches, sand traps (if you can call them that) so unkept there were weeds growing in them, branches and leaves everywhere on every hole, we had to call the course by the third hole because my cart wouldn’t start, there was no available drinks/snacks at the club house and half the holes were swarming with enormous wasps.
