A gem in Queens
My friend discovered this place this year. It is a very challenging Pitch and Putt course kept in very good condition. Holes are from 40-80 yards so great practice for your short game. We mostly play at night under the lights. The stadium lights really work great. Definitely recommended for golfers of all levels. They also have a miniature golf course which is great for the family. Snack bar has basic food hamburgers, hot dogs and beer and soda. Prices are pretty reasonable. Staff is very friendly. Jerry the manager is fun to talk to.
The Run Down lol
I play this course all the time. I stay the night in flushing at least twice a week, it's literally a 15 minute walk from the apt , and the course is 5 min walk directly to the 7 train. A lot of people complain about this course because of the staff, beer man, or the pace of play. In all honesty this is NYC , that's just the city moral . This place is great for hanging out with your buddies, beginners, experienced players , and family. If your looking for something spectacular or your country club field this is not for you. I'm from NYC to have this in my back yard is amazing. The price sucks, it is very expensive . The best thing tho is the cheap beers and you can play at night being that it's has stadium lights all over. Last tee time is 11pm . So if you have a argument with the wife and need a hour or 2 to yourself at night this is the place to be. I like the trees , the bunkers, all the obstacles. It also has that rugged NYC fowl smell lingering. Maybe the smell is from Citi Field across the street being the Mets play there lol.
It is what it is
Nice place to introduce someone to the game but for and experienced player it might not be worth the price. Its a nice place to go with friends on a hot summer night but if you're looking for a true golf experience, this is not the place to go.
Usually played by people who never been been on a course. Don't expect others to know proper etiquette and fix ball marks. Since this place is pretty much a cash cow no matter how bad its run, it is what it is.
BTW, back in the day they used to provided a golf ball after you purchase your round. This obviously doesn't exists anymore so bring a few golf balls.
