Getting better

I have to say, this course is getting better. The greens could use bit more speed, but overall I can notice the improvement on fairways and tee boxes.

I saw a ranger twice which was nice to see as well.

I think once they get the pace of play better, the course could have a much better experience for golfers.

You need to tee off before 9 am. Period.

Great course, fair layout that’s a challenge for players of all skill levels. Best greens of any NYC course (including the mini-golf gimmicks at Ferry Point). But there are no rangers to promote pace of play, several holes will take you 45 minutes each with all the waiting around. Teeing off after 9am pretty much guarantees a 6-7 hour round.

At a snail's pace

Considering all the rain we've had this season, this course was in very good condition. Despite the signs declaring a 4.5 hour pace of play, and a raft of marshalls on the course, we played in just under 6 hours!!! That's 20 minutes a hole. We were in position the entire time. Ouch!!!

Pleasantly Surprised

I wasn't sure what to expect of this course, but ended up being pleasantly surprised how nice the conditions were for a public course in Brooklyn. The course seems to be going through quite a bit of renovations, so a lot of areas were roped off and torn up, but other than that, the place was in great condition. Pin placements and greens were challenging, but not ridiculous.

Decent course that I have played over the years. In good shape for end of season. Greens were nice and so were fairways. Looking forward to playing again.

Great Links Style Course with Awesome Views

Wide open fairways, large greens, and forgiving rough. The wind can get pretty strong and effect club selection

Rude club house staff. Great conditions.

I love this course. Greens are in good shape and roll fast. Moderately long from the tips and a fun layout. Nice bar also.

That said, the staff are by far the worst part about this course. The starter in particular needs an attitude adjustment. There’s no reason a grown man should act the way I’ve seen him act on several occasions. Do us all a favor pal and quit if you don’t want to be there.

Pace of play is sloooooooow. Again, if the staff did their jobs pace would be better but I guess they’ve got other things to do. I saw a ranger but he wasn’t doing squat.

The superintendent is going a great job with the course. The recent upgrades look great.

The clubhouse staff could take some cues from the course maintenance staff for sure.

Beautiful

I was pleasantly surprised with the improvements, and upgrades, disappointed that it was recently aerated, but that was nothing major. The new sand bunkers, the berms, fairways, all add to the beauty of the course. Hard to believe we were in an urban environment.

4th of July

Granted it was 4th of July, but not having rangers was really bad. 5.5 hrs of round is exactly the reason why many average golfers like me don't want to golf. With that being said, the course improved from last time in terms of conditions. Greens were better, and I noticed improvements on bunkers and fairways. But still needs work, and hopefully this comments would get them to start focusing more on golfer experience. Only NYC muni over 7k yards, so for first timers, might be worth the experience.

We appreciate the feedback. It's tough sometimes at public courses to keep the pace moving and also allow beginner golfers the time they need to play. Our rangers are normally active on the weekends to help keep an acceptable pace. Nonetheless, we're happy our course improvements are making an impression and we'll certainly continue that effort. Thanks for coming out to Marine Park!

Best shape for muni course

Played the course recently in great conditions. Greens rolled perfectly and fair. Were receptive after the previous nights rain. The waste bunker between 3 and 4 is a great addition adds a nice touch to the front nine. Fairways and tee boxes were also in great shape. The fescue has taken awile to grow and is slowly adding a challenge to the open layout. Some of the mounds need more fescue to be planted as they is still toi much dirt and stone which makes the fesue too easy out of which to olay. Some of the fesue does not punish fairway misses. Otherwise this course is becoming a local public favorite paricularky for the price and amenities. What other public course do you know specifically has a chipping and bunker practice area? Great job on the upgrades to this city course.
