ANYONE WHO PLAYS GOOD GOLF KNOWS THE WHITE COURSE IS SUPERIOR TO THE OVERRATED AND SLOW MISERABLE PACED RED COURSE AT EISENHOWER , IF THEY PUT SOME MONEY BACK INTO THE WHITE IT WOULD BE ONE OF THE BEST GOLF COURSES IN NASSAU COUNTY , BUT EVERYONE LIKES THE MUNDANE MEDIOCRE RED ,,, SAD

Played the loop in 3 1/2 hours which is unheard of here. Tee boxes could use some attention. Fairways were in good shape however the rough is tough. Greens were moderate in speed but were true. Over all a nice experience and pace was excellent.

This was my first trip to Eisenhower. I usually avoid it because it's always crowded, but I've always wanted to give it a try. I played the RED course starting at 12:30 and was only able to finish 13 holes by 4:40 when it got too dark to finish. That's just way too slow for me. The course itself was very nice. A nice par 5 to start and loosen up, followed by several dog-legs. I liked the bunkers around the greens, which forced you to hit quality shots on your approach. The green on the 12th was a killer as was some of the pin-placements but overall, I enjoyed the round.

I was excited to play Eisenhower Red on a summer weekend, having played other public courses in Long Island including Bethpage.

The first issue was that you have to pay simply to park at the golf course. I'm not talking about valet service - just to bring your car to the facility costs $10. This was a first, but ok the course must be worth it.

I HAVE NEVER PLAYED A SLOWER ROUND OF GOLF IN MY LIFE. IT TOOK 3 HOURS TO PLAY 7 HOLES.<br/> Every tee box we came to, there was always 1 group if not 2 groups WAITING to tee off. We would wait typically 20 minutes after every green. As such it was impossible to get a rythm or take the situation seriously.

I left after 7 holes because life is too short to spend it in line.

I play this course every week because they have 5:30am-8:30am blocked out for walk-ons, so getting a tee time is easy if you wake up early enough.

The staff is ALWAYS friendly. Many people think every hole looks the same, and while that may be true, it still provides what you look for in a good golf course...nice tee boxes, well kept fairways, and fastest muni greens that roll true, and 4 hrs 15 mins pace of play.

The only bad thing might be when you tee off early in the morning, the sun is directly in your light of sight so always have a friend keep an eye out on your ball.

As sad as it is, teens are still not welcome at most courses and that was not the case here, I don't have a single issue and our tee time went off with out a hitch, One little suggestion, We played behind a foursome that wore cut off sweats and sleeve less tees, I hope that this was an oversight on the starters. Public course or not, the players should have been asked to cover up or given a warning on the dress code.

Where do I start? How about the mile walk to the hut where you pay? I felt like I was betting Ponys at Saratoga standing at four plexiglass windows with attendants are busy socializing behind them. I had to wait until the one girl was finished showing the other a picture on her iPhone. You then walk back through the lot to get a cart. Not the optimal set up. If you're hungry you better grab a snack at the snack shack. The water fountains are all disconnected and there's not a single cooler on the course. You're not allowed to bring your own cooler (pretty standard) but they could at least give you a bag of ice. Nope..the ice maker is broken and according to the attendant, the course has no plans in replacing it. OK FINE..TO THE COURSE RIGHT?!?!?

So you stand up at the tips on the first tee box and look out on a well groomed fairway. First tee shot inspires confidence as there are nearly no hazards, and the fairway is large enough to land a fleet of 747 Jets. The condition of the first tee box and fairway is deceiving because they appear well groomed. The greens were in horrendous shape. Hard as porcelain. I saw multiple flop shots and pitches hit the green and bounce almost four feet in the air. If you're lucky enough to get your ball to stick, the pleasure will shortly ware off. The last aeration didn't go well, as the greens are choppy in certain areas with weeds growing in random patches. The ball bounces off its line or gets eaten by a huge patch of crab grass. The rough and fringe around the greens aren't in any better shape either. I've had cleaner lies pitching in my backyard.....and I haven't mowed it since last season yet! As another reviewer stated, the sand is inconsistent. Some traps have more rocks then sand while others have an abundant amount of soft cakey sand. This makes it very tough to judge your shot from hole to hole.

Unless you get out at an awkward time or have a free day of the week, you're experience will not only be unsatisfactory..but extremely long. Yesterday I managed to get out of there after 4 hours, but that is a rarity when I play there. Eisenhower is a course that needs to meet two key points...you need to be free with no where else to go. If you can go somewhere else, make the trip to bethpage (about 15 minutes). I actually shot a decent score, so for the record, this review is not a disgruntled golfer who is mad at himself and blamed the course.
