Challenging corse

Course is in great condition. Tighten fairways, great for beginners. Fantastic course for socializing, and having a fun game. Would be even better if there was a par 5.

Local golfer

Short course, but not an easy course. Got right on, 4 hour round. Hilly, so a cart is very helpful. Fairways in good condition, greens were bumpy, need to be rolled.

Wonderful golf course for the start of the golf season.

Great golf course. Beautiful views. Great carts. Well maintained. Beautiful weather this weekend. The staff is very friendly and manage the starts and group nicely.
There is no practice to prepare the game except the green practice so be prepared.
Holes are near each other so you often find balls from other holes landing on your fairway. Everyone is very friendly and courteous so that is fine.
We had a foursome in front of us and twosome behind us. Pace of play was fine and and we finished under 3hours. We would probably finish in 2h30 if no one was in front of us.

It is 5mins from Flushing, so mind blowing Chinese food for before and after game. Great double excuse to get out of New York.

Kissena Park

I like Kissena Park Golf Course. It’s a shorter course with many challenges. Lots of hills and elevated greens. The views are amazing. Stop to enjoy the Manhattan skyline at the 10th hole. And a big plus for city courses, free parking.

Short, fun course.

Only 4500 yds. 8 par threes. Still had a good time. Fun course.
Long wait between holes. It was a beautiful sunny day and low 60s temps so it seemed a lot of people were taking advantage.
If you have patience, you’ll enjoy yourself.

NYC TREASURES

Kissena is a short but challenging course. A hilly course offering vistas from almost every angle. The fairways are tight and the greens a challenge. The staff is pleasant and even the snack bar offered good food and beer for a decent price. One of my favorite Golf NYC courses.

4,700 yard course $70 !!???

The course was in good shape and even though it was busy we still finished in 4 hours (probably because how short it is). If you play here make sure you go through golf now on the weekend or you will have to pay an additional $20 on top of the $50. This is not a $70 course, it doesn't even have any par 5s. I will play here again but only with a Hot Deal.

Early Morning Round

Had a 6:15 Tee Time. Was met by a couple of foxes as I entered the grounds from the parking lot. Wildlife. Cool. Apparently, they are a growing family of “regulars”. Kissena a is a short, hilly, well kept course that will test your shot making ability with different lies, elevation changes. The rough this morning was wet & thick. Greens in good condition. Place gets a massive amount of play, and is well maintained. My early morning round, as part of a twosome, was completed at 9am, yes, 2 hrs 45 mins. A rare thing of beauty.
