Sunday Funday

Just a short drive over the bridge to experience Split Rock and Pelham. The course is in good shape for October. Pace of play is what you expect on a NYC course on a sunny weekend day.

Great course, starter was a jerk

Course was nice, pace of play was great. The only downside was the starter, who rushed us into an earlier slot. We booked 7:20, he pushed us into the 7:12, giving us not much time to get loose. Then he exclaimed that we were late. We were NOT late. We were 5 minutes early for the original time we had booked. Really a bad way to start a round. Other than that the round was great.

Played Split Rock for the first time

First time I played. Absolutely recommend. Course was in good shape. Pace of play was slow but not worse than any other NY course. Will absolutely play again. Also great that it is close to City Island.

Northern Bronx Golfing

Any day is a great day for golf and living in the city, this course provides a great public course option. Although that does come with the common failings of public courses. The greens are not well maintained so from hole to hole the green speeds vary greatly. Also, there are players of varying skill sets, so after about 11 am, there can be significant slow down to pace of play. Conversely, it did begin to rain heavily at the 17th hole, which caused some difficulty in finishing out the round. Overall, a great time.

Mosquitos Zombies

We started at 6:12 am and the mosquitos didn't stop eating us up until almost the entire game I suggest not to plsy there until after lunch apparently they love to eat you during the early mornings the mosquitos even went through your clothes they must have vampire teeth in addition they have to trim the grass shorter by the rough and cover some of the damaged fairways. My other issue is that I left messages for the manager and assistant manager about reservation issue not one of these people return my call...most unlikely return to play here...

Hornets

They seriously need to do something about the hornets. They are in bunkers, near greens and on fairways. Not just a few, swarms of them hovering around several areas making balls unplayable.

......Never Again

Never goin back again. Hate after 1st round and last round!! Mosquitoes and Wasps infected course. Booking was deceiving. You book not knowing which of the 2 courses you’ll play. Booking needs to be by course. You’ll end of playing split rock.

Go else where

If you play on split rock you will probably end up being dead by West Nile virus. So much bugs and mosquitos . The staff sell you tee time knowing that they will send out shotgun outing an hour and a half later fill every tee box with foursome. So if you want to actually finish your round adding extra 2 hours.

Please avoid this course

There are two 18 hole courses in club. One of a kind in NYC muni courses. But mosquito condition is really really bad. Bug spray will not help you. Our foursome gave up by the 6th hole. It is too bad because the course layout is pretty nice. Bunkers needs work, but until mosquito conditions are corrected I would stay away. Alternatively, you can wait till winter to play.

Mosquitos

The pace was very slow even for a Sunday. The mosquitos were absolutely unbearable. We had bug spray and there were just swarms all over the course. Overall the course needed to be mowed. Not a great experience for the money. We will not be going back anytime soon.

Infested with bugs

A miserable day. Mosquitos run rampant on the course, the pace of play was tedious - a six hour round., The tee boxes and fairways look like they have been attacked by gophers. And if you are not in the fairways, well it's hardpan or weeds. Not worth the money

MOSQUITO CITY

THE PLACE IS A HEALTH HAZARD DUE TO MOSQUITO PROBLEM.. Management chose to sell bug spray and turned a blind eye to the issue. You cannot stand on the tee for more than 3 seconds without getting surrounded by mosquitos, then they will surround your cart and wait for you. It was a terrible experience, such a shame for one of the best city public courses. The borough president should intervene and close the course until the mosquito problem is no longer a health hazard.

Big Disappointment

The bottom line with this place is they are shortsidedly only in it for the money. Course was not too full because it was hot hot hot. Lunch stand was closed, only water was on the 10th hole. They used cheap mechanics rags to dry off the balls after cleaning. At least 4 hole signs were missing. Lunch was horrible. Played only 2 days here this year. Both days the same. They book you minutes behind an outing without any pause, so you wait for the outing the whole time. The take away is I feel ripped off at this place.
