Day of golf

Played with 3 nice guys. The layout is so so. Water spots, bare areas and aeration made it not so good. A lot of walkers slowed the pace.

Best Around

Dyker is my favorite layout of the city courses by far. Great variation of holes. Although crowded today, we still got around in less than 5 hours. For January the conditions were immaculate!

Just ok!

Played here on 11/27. Course was in the shape you expect it to be in for November. This course isn’t too challenging, good course for beginners. It’s almost impossible to lose a ball. I think they are crazy still charging people summer rates to play this course this time of the year. If you can get a good deal on golf now it’s worth it just to get out. Otherwise do not pay over $60 to play here in the winter

Underrated

10 minute walk from the R. The course is part of a wedding venue so the property is great. Can get a bit backed up on par 3’s but you’re playing in NYC. Highly recommend

This course is a great get away !

My Brother in-law and I had a great time. It’s always nice to get away from city life while you’re still actually in the city.

Terrible course. Should be closed.

Tee boxes were all sand and dirt. No grass. Golf carts were filthy and probably hadn’t been cleaned in months. When we finished our round at 1:30 people were waiting for carts. The course doesn’t have enough of them. Cart paths were rutted and full of potholes. The course has no restrooms except in the pro shop. Course design is very basic. No interesting holes. Greens are sandy and not well kept.

Worst Conditioned Course in City

There is no fairway. Only seeded low cut grass that has absolutely no softness. Good shots to fairway are not rewarded and instead penalized by hitting off of something that feels like a pool table. Greens are dirt with some grass sprinkled in, literally patchy grass and black dirt. Tee boxes are patchy grass covered in a layer of sand. On top of that, a worker ran over my ball with a lawnmower, chopping off the top of it. The ball was in the second cut, highly visible. This is not a course worth the convenience of its location, and certainly not worth $70+ for a round.

Tough month for turf

Course remains a real good layout, pace of play was remarkably good, and a proper mix of challenging / accessible hole locations. Turf at the moment is less than ideal. Played back in early July and the course was better than I remembered from the past (been playing Dyker on and off for 35 years). Recently top-dressed greens (sand was pretty grainy) showed signs of significant wilt and some disease. Same stressed turf in many fairways. If you roll it over in short grass it's not a problem. I bet the conditions will improve as cooler weather settles in this fall.

I'll make the trip to Dyker if I want to hit more than Driver / wedge on par fours. Dyker requires hitting most of the clubs in the bag, especially if the wind is blowing off the water. Staff is great. Hot weather and less traffic likely the reasons for unusually quick pace.

Although they charged me for a no show (in which I was present) it was good for what it’s worth

Greens & tee boxes... disaster

Overall, I really like playing at Dyker. However, lately the greens have been in horrendous condition (more brown than green) and tee boxes are just elevated sandtraps at this point. Has great potential if kept up as well as it had been at the beging of the season, but now its just frustrating.

Horrible condition

The course has slowly turned worse and worse. Beautiful layout and lots of great views in the middle of a Brooklyn To bad they dont take care of it anymore.
