Quite a surprise. Extremely challenging amd I am an 8 hdcp. Almost every non Par 3 is a dog leg and tree lined. Greens were superb. And all this for $27 (Special Wed rate). One of the beest public courses I have eever played....and that covers 50 years.
Once ranked ahead of Bethpage Black
Bull Creek was once ranked ahead of Bethpage Black among best public courses in the US. NY invested millions to restore the Black course. Bull Creek West is still a great track. Par 5 #13 is one of my favorite risk/reward driving holes. #15 is a strong and scenic par 4.
Fun and fair
This is a fun, fair course. The conditions are better than most municipal courses because the city uses inmate labor, which is very cheap. It is easy to walk, as there are not severe elevation changes. The practice facilities are great. They have 2 putting greens, fairway bunkers on the driving range, and a great chipping/sand area. Range balls are only $4 a bucket.
