Awful Conditioning

We will not return to this course given the extremely poor condition it was in. Tee boxes are thick with crab grass. Fairway lies are almost always uneven. Some greens are diseased and partly bald. In playable condition this would be a fun course, although I'm not a fan of numerous blind spots, even from the tee.

Fallen off

Over the past 2 months or so, for whatever reason, the course has almost become unplayable. Which is unfortunate because it’s been one of my favorite local courses with friendly staff. However, the fairways and greens are in rough shape. Some of the greens aren’t actually green anymore. Hopefully they can find a way to spruce up the course.

Really poor course conditions

We played at 6am, the second off the tee. We waited at least 4 minutes at every hole for the group in front of us, who had carts. We were walking. Perhaps the started can shoot them off on the back 9 first to alleviate this next time.

The first 3 holes we were followed by an employee using a leaf blower on each of the tees, which I’ve never seen before during rounds being played. There were large sections of the fairways that were cordoned off bc of mud, holes and plain awful surfaces. The tee boxes were in awful condition, either completely bare or looked like they hadn’t been trimmed in over a month.

All this aside, perhaps the craziest thing was on the 5th hole par 3. After waiting a few minutes for the group ahead to finish, we step up to the tee box only to look down at the green and employee was changing the flag location! In the middle of the round! I’ve literally never seen anything like it. Overall poor course experience and I won’t be going back.

Highly recommend

A challenging course with many blind approaches & undulating fareways. If you're not aware of the course's tricks it can catch an unfamiliar player off base. Highly worth playing. Every hole has its own challenges & is very different from the one before. Course conditions are good, staff very courteous. If you haven't played it, what are you waiting for??

Wet course and miserable day

It stopped raining 10 min before my tee time. The course was in bad condition, a lot of puddles. In general the course is not well maintained. It is bad, because this place has a great potential. Just needs somebody with vision and love for golf to make it better. You can recognize from miles away that this is a public golf course.
By the way, because of the rule "no walk-ins" the pace was great. Anytime before I played the wait is minimum 1 hour - they accept walk-ins and don't keep the tee-times. Terrible management.

Douglaston GC

Pro Shop/Starter got us out before our 4:00 tee time, which was appreciated and we did get all 18 holes in in good light which was great. It’s a fun hilly layout with maybe one or two too many par 3’s but be that as it may - was an enjoyable day of golf. The greens were very soft and a bit bumpy which led to some adventures in putting but still a fun little track.
