Type Municipal
Located in the heart of Eastchester, Lake Isle Country Club is a facility that is owned by the town and offers a swimming complex with five pools and a tennis center with eight courts in addition to the 18-hole, championship golf course. Opened in 1926, the course is one of the oldest in the area and it is still a local favorite. At just over 6,000 yards from the back tees, the course may be on the shorter side but it still offers some challenging holes. The layout is mostly reachable par 4s as well as a few tricky par 3s and only an occasional par 5. The golf course has a classic design that is approachable enough for a range of skill levels to feel comfortable tackling the layout.

Pretty good

Not a bad course. Not very long so it allows you to take iron off the tee if you’re a course manager. Greens were on the slower side and kind of tricky to read. Some blind shots and a mixture of narrow and wide fairways. Staff was also very friendly. We played on a hot deal so I’m not sure about the full price. I’ll definitely be back

Lake Isle Country Club

My first time playing Lake Isle and I just really enjoyed this course. I had read that it was a short course, 6,000 yds from the tips and wondered if it would be challenging enough. Well I found it very challenging and interesting to play. There are some really nice holes on this course and quite a few long par 3's in excess of 190 yards. I never felt I was playing a short course. The fairways were in great shape despite heavy rainfall the night before. It was car path only, yet we still managed to finish in 4hrs and 15 minutes. The greens were in very good condition and were a little slow, but acceptable. The bunkers were also in great condition with sand and not hard pack. My only complaint and it is a small one is that I sometimes did not know which way the next hole was, you know, being a first time player. Some holes were tricky because you couldn't see the green and so you had to guess a little bit on where you wanted to drive your ball, but it was a positive aspect of the course in my opinion. I loved it and will play here again!! I also am going to recommend it to my friends.

Love it

Lake Isle is a great semi private course. The pace of play is excellent, they never overbook which gives you a stress free round. Staff is very friendly. The superintendent did a wonderful job with the amount of rain that fell in the last couple of days.

Once and Done

Paid $97 for two of us with a GolfNow Hot Deal. Wouldn’t pay full fare. Course needs upkeep. Greens were wet, very slow and dinky. My ball plugged up to its equator four or five times on the greens. Fairways were super wet, too. Seems like the course could use a full drainage overhall. I think they have it set for permanent cartpath only, except for three holes. You need an ATV on the cart paths, terrible shape. Too many blind tee shots. Disco music blasting from the adjacent pool complex made it difficult to enjoy. Ugh.

Staff was pleasant, except our fousome was asked to please pick up the pace at the turn after finishing the front nine in 1:40. Really?

For the price, there are better courses in the area to play.

Pleasant surprise

Hadn’t played there in a while and was looking for an inexpensive, late day place to play. Found this on GolfNow and being close to Home it was perfect. Staff was great, course not crowded and really in excellent shape.

Fairways and greens were really in super shape. Since I don’t the ball far anymore the length of as perfect.

Would definitely come back. Other then bar being closed it was great.

Great Golf Course

Lake Isle CC is a short golf course with pristine greens and fairways. I was able to play the course for $34 on a hot deal and would consider the normal playing rate expensive for a par 70 6000 yard golf course. Nonetheless blind tee shots, treelined holes and narrow fairways always make for exciting rounds. This course is one of the best public courses in close proximity to New York City.

A nice change of pace

I thoroughly enjoyed my second round at this course. While it isn’t a very long course, it’s fun and challenging at times. There was much course management and updates going on during my round but it seems like the course is only getting better. Greens are just as fast as I remember from my last visit which make You earn your scores. The staff was very inviting and warm. Food was great and I even managed to do a nice job parallel parking my cart at the turn. My group enjoyed our round and I can’t wait to return before the end of summer.

More Difficult than you'd think

It doesn't require great length, but if you're off line, you will have trouble scoring. The course is in good condition and offers an enjoyable and relaxing round of golf. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first and 10th fairways being covered with range balls, but at least they are colored yellow to help avoid confusion if you are playing a traditional white ball.
