Fun Day at Kissena

This is a fun course and a great course for people who haven't played before or are just getting into golf. is a great time. Always fun and the staff is always pleasant.

The course was in the worst shape I have ever seen it. They had recently aerated so there were punctures on every green and every fairway up to each green was covered in the aeration divots. This made chipping extremely challenging.

The greens were completely unplayable . I three-putt almost every green. you couldn't even call them greens they were covered in sand. again I think this was due to the recent aeration. but it was just poor maintenance and really took away from the experience.

No clue how to manage time

Had to wait what felt life forever because of poor management of time. Instead of playing 18 I left after the 7th hole, I could wait upwards of 20+min at each tee box. No rangers pushing things along. You will not find myself, friends, or having me recommend this place for corporate outings. This is the second time this happened to me this year, I won’t be returning. The tee boxes I did see were in bad shape.

First light tee time...

Recovering from a serious hand injury, today was the first time out in 3 months so I was hesitant to get on the course. However, I always find this course a good one to work off the rust as it close by, nice staff and price appropriate. Banged out a first light 18 holes in 2 hours and was thrilled with the score given the injury. Always a good time out, if you are in the NYC area, give it a shot. lots of parking, strong customer service and lots of changes in terrain.
