Monday Golf at the WOODS

Fall weather day and playing golf at the woods. To many leaves ALL over the course. It seems they take better care of the LINKS course then the woods. Hard to find ball in middle of fairway with all the leaves.. Greens still very good shape. .

In great shape

Played the Woods many times and I really like the challenge and layout. Being offline is punishing as second shots tend to hit branches and recovering can be difficult. The course is in great condition and greens were beautiful. The staff is so nice. Last time I left my P on course and I got a call 4 days later and got it back! The only downside is the range is on the other course across the street plus a short walk &it’s expensive so get there early if you like the range.

The Woods was better than remembered

I haven't played this course in a long time, normally play the links across the street. This course demands accurate shots off the box due to the tight tree lined fairways which is both fun and frustrating but it struck how different this course is from it's sister course across the street and I appreciated it more than I remembered. The staff from front desk to ranger to halfway house attendant were great, the started in particular was really accommodating we actually were able to get earlier than our tee time as a twosome on a Sunday

SLH

course conditions were good overall just some areas of missing grass. greens were very good. I always find this course challenging because its very narrow with trees on both sides of the fairway. I tend to fade my ball a bit and often find myself in the woods. Fairly easy to find in the woods as its groomed out good.

Not in very good shape

I haven’t played this course in a couple of years. My major complaint was the fairways they needed to be mowed and you received no reward for a premium tee shot. Also they were very chewed up in spots. You could tell the course received a lot of play this season. But not the maintenance it requires for the amount of play it received.
There are much better deals in Suffolk county. The staff was very accommodating. I’m playing a outing on Friday 9/13 at the woods I will update my review.

Tough track with a great layout

I really do enjoy the layout of this course. There are lots of trees but you can still find your ball. Greens were in a great shape but the fairways were a bit beat up. They have a small short game area but no driving range. Would play here again.

End of summer Golf

Greens very good..Only fault is some golfers don't pick up there feet and scuff the greens. They are going to spike up the course 17th of Sept some areas in front of greens done already. Pin placements very tough during our play which took less then 4 hrs.

I agree with the scuffed greens comment. Have played here many times and we often joke that it looks like a bear tore up the greens. If the course isn’t spineless, they should consider doing so. I will recommend such the next time I’m in as they seem to take comments seriously on here (ie they respond). People should also regularly fix their ball marks on the green SMH!

Disgraceful

The owners of this course should be ashamed. To charge 75 dollars for fairways that are half dirt, and greens where it looks like the pin hasn't been moved all season is a disgrace.

I would never EVER visit the woods again. Links are where it's at, although I'm hoping the lazy owners haven't completely given up on any type of maintenance over there.

What in your right mind would make you charge that much money for what is arguably the worst kept course in the county? You need your heads examined, and I sincerely hope a solar farm comes in to wipe you out.

Narrow with true greens

Almost every hole is lined with trees, if you don’t hit it straight you’re in for a long round. Aside from the tight fairways most holes have a straight layout. Green we’re soft and true.

Great day

Good course. Needs work on the fairways. Looks like The summer took it’s toll and it it is in bad need of grass seed and aggressive maintenance. It’s s fun course to play in spite of the poor fairways. The greens are excellent and the tees are ok. Best thing about the place is that it always has tee times available.

Gone way downhill

Have played here every year once or twice. Long ride from home, but always enjoyed the course. Not so today. The tee boxes were awful - more bare spots than grass on many. The fairways were filled with bare areas. The sand traps had not been maintained in a long time - what looked like animal holes in them, long strips that looked like they were eroded by water, etc.
We were told they lost their sprinkler system after a lightning strike (on both courses they run) - I don’t buy it. If that happened, the place would be full of brown grass - this was bare and that is also no excuse for the traps.
It resembled other courses I have played on Long Island in their final year after selling the property to a developer.
