The course layout is very good, interesting and varied.

The greens were in great shape, a little slow but balls rolled true.

The fairways were thin in general. Most lies were not good.

With no range and only a putting green, there is no chance to warm up.

The play was slow. Even with two threesomes in front of us our foursome had to wait to hit on most holes.

The food at grill was just okay, but they did offer bags of ice with the beer for your round.

With improved maintenance, on fairways in particular, this could be a good course.

This course is well laid out over a rolling slightly hilly property. It has good fairway movement and green complexes that provide for strategic options. Several blind spots and elevations provide interest. Many fairways are tree lined but are fairly wide. The greens have nice slope and mounds and are usually protected on one side by bunkers. The conditioning is fair but not great. The course is very walkable. This is a nice option for a casual round.

Disgusting. Water rats all over the course. Tee boxes were here Muddy with no grass and full of broken tees.

No cart girl on the course. The bathrooms reeked of urine. The urinals were stained dark yellow brown and look to haven't been cleaned all year.

What a shame for such a nice property to not be managed appropriately

Never go back again unless they pay me.

Beautiful day spent on a day with beautiful course conditions. On a late Sunday morning, 4 hours and 10 minutes to finish our round with a female playing from the front tees is fantastic pace. Its been a while since I played this track but it's here where I learned how to play this game. Fairways and greens probably the best shape I ever seen. It's obvious funds were put into this place not only for golf but towards their banquet hall as well. Overall it's a very nice venue to not only play golf but to relax as well. Fairways are moderately wide which makes it playable for mid and high handicappers. Big hitters would most likely consider this track short. Solid shots will definitely get rewarded with its design and layout. South Shore will always hold dear to me but its not considered a course to play if you're coming in from NYC, Long Island or far into NJ. It's considered a track for local Staten Islanders and the players/friendly staff don't mind that at all.
