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 Feb round

One of my favorite courses. Check in effortless but first tee backed up onto development entrance. Could have used a starter. Many traps without rakes and no tee markers. No tee markers was surprising. Having shared that I love the course. Round proceeded smoothly and enjoyed this Feb day. Course really makes you think in a strategically.

Course played well for a January in NY. Greens putted well and fairways were in good shape. A day outside in January in the fresh air is always good!

Fun fun fun!

This course is a ton of fun. Lots of bunkers, lots of water. the greens and fairways were in great shape, especially for December and the recent wet weather. Pro shop staff are friendly and very helpful. I can't wait to go back to play in the spring.

First time playing this course and first review ever.

What a great course. Reminded me of the links style tracks down in Myrtle Beach. Pretty slick lay-out ,with tons of bunkers and water. Pace of play under 4 hours and each hole had some individual character.
Bill in the Pro shop was extremely helpful and accommodating.. My late November green fee of 40 bucks was more than a fair price.
Very good experience...as the Terminator says..."".I'll be back.""

Excellent course conditions for mid-November. Fairways were aerated about a month ago and had not fully recovered. Greens were smooth and relatively fast, but with many unfixed ball marks.

Nice course

Only thing that was bad was the pace of play. Group in front of me was taking instructions and slowed the pace to a halt! Need to get starter out there to move them along! But other wise this course is very nice especially for the time of year.

Most beautiful course ive ever played

This has to be by far the most well kept, and picturesque course ive played especially on long island. A difficult but fair course that requires you to manage your club selection. The course has a lot of bunker defense and. Many holes are lined with water. A straight shoot should be able to play well on this course.
