Willow Creek Golf & Country Club in Mount Sinai sits on Suffolk's scenic north shore. Opened in 2005, it is one of Long Island's newest golf courses but it has already established a reputation for being one of the area's most visually impressive. What makes the course stand out is the abundance of both sand and water. The number of bunkers on the golf course comes close to the triple digits and water appears on 12 holes. The lightning fast, wildly undulating greens are a challenging complement to the hazards. The layout presents a formidable test for even the best players. One of Hamlet Willow Creek's most difficult holes is the monstrous ninth, which features water on both sides of the seemingly endless fairway. With so much water, golfers almost forget about the three large bunkers that are also treacherously lurking on this hole.

Great day at Willow Creek.

- Staff is super friendly.
- The course was in great impeccable shape.
- The fairways were nice and soft.
- The layout gets more challenging in the back 9.
- Pace of play was above decent with 4.5 hours to complete a round.

- The only downside were the greens were quite bumpy, but that could have alot been since we played in the afternoon.

- Not sure why others this year were hemming and hawing. But excellent round of golf overall.

The course is great BUT

their way to expensive for long island golf $92.00 to play ok high but i get it to me it was the additional $36.00 per person to ride thats absurd so thats $72.00 for 1 cart thats
$512.00 per foursome

Thank you for your review! We apologize that you didn't enjoy your time with us. COVID-19 mandates are continually evolving in regards to golf cart usage. The prepaid GolfNow rates are to cover the green fee portion only as our club could not guarantee carts for all players. If a cart was available, the player could pay the additional cart fee upon arrival. At one point, our club was walking only. Restrictions were then lifted and carts were allowed for single riders only. Further restrictions were lifted allowing two riders to a cart -- at this time, an extra $10 surcharge was charged to riders requesting to ride alone, unless they had an underlying health condition. Players taking individual carts was causing a shortage of carts for players. We ask that all players be patient as we continue to manage through these unprecedented times and ever-changing times. Golf cart dividers are now available to allow for players riding together that do not live in the same household. Thank you again and we hope to have you back soon!

Greens

Great layout, impeccable condition, but the greens are just a little too hokey for my liking. It’s one thing to undulate, it’s another to be so over the top, even real good shots aren’t rewarded...

Fantastic course that made you feel like you were at a resort

The course was in great shape. I he king in was a breeze and the staff were all friendly. They treated us like we were on a private Membership course . The layout was challenging with almost too many sand bunkers but as we played we realized a consistent shot took most of them out of play. The course itself plays much longer then what the actual yardage so don’t be fooled and jump for a longer tee position. It takes consistent tee shots not only with a driver but many times using a 3 wood or hybrid for positioning for the second shot. No worries though as you check in the staff gives you an accurate yardage that was well put to use.
Enjoy your round

bad manners

when i made reservation i was informed walking only.
the rate to play was a little high but i chose to accept the terms.
when i arrived i was informed that each member of our group would have to cough up an additional $26 dollars because now their enforcing a cart only policy.
we then had to regroup from the first tee with our pull carts go back to cars and rush to tee and immediately begin the round in a rush.
the course is terrific, i dont believe they honored their commitment to my group.

Loved everything about this course is definitely the best public golf course on Long Island greens immaculate been playing here for years the fact that they don’t let you walk before 11 on weekends is enough to get me to start going elsewhere sad because it’s my favorite but I love to walk and am good enough to where I never hold anyone up so I don’t understand

Willow Creek had the feel of a real challenging golf course

What a brilliant course for the money. The staff was knowledgeable friendly and very accommodating. This was the first time I played willow creek and I am looking forward to my next time. The only thing I would do differently would be to ride instead of walk. It was a workout but the scenery was spectacular. I am sorry I didn’t get any pictures but I also wish I hit a few more fairways LOL.
