Mattawang Golf Club
Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

I understand that do to pandemic the amenities would be sparse, but none existent. I find it hard to believe, that at this stage of the covid, no one has foresight to at least
place a couple of vending machines outside where we could help ourselves to a drink or snack. It's like management just gave up on the customer service.
Given heat wave and dry spell, fairways and greens in good shape
Greens were well watered and maintained nicely for consistent play. Well done
Thank you for noticing the efforts of keeping up with the heat and the lack of rain we have received.
Fairways and greens were in great shape. Rough was brown. Overall in good shape. Range is a little steep at $8 if you're already playing. However, overall it's a good course if you want something open that can be a fun course to play.
Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts.
Nice course, pretty good conditions overall. Saw a lot of areas that were drying out, but they were watering the course for almost my entire round so obviously they are trying to get it a little more green.
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. The boys on the crew are trying!
The course was in excellent condition, greens were fast but in very good condition. Some interesting holes, hitting off the fairway put you into difficult situations. Stay straight and true otherwise you'll pay the price. Would make a return visit!
We are glad you appreciate the true challenge of Mattawang. It is a old shot makers course!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Hopefully, you will be back again soon. Enjoy the remainder of your season.
Not good value for money
I had played this course several years ago, but booked at the last minute because I wanted to get around in over the weekend. The course condition was poor, except for the greens. Despite a good amount of rain in the past month, the course was surprisingly dry and burned. The course is not particularly difficult. The amenities despite the coronavirus emergency were poor. They didn't even have ice for the drinks. The water bottles for sale were warm. Given the cost of around, they could easily provide better amenities.
Sorry your expectations were not reached. However, I feel the need to express some actual facts about some of your comments. Rain - I do not know where you live but we received .35 of an inch of rain for the whole month of June (less then 1/2 of an inch). Drinks- We have three coolers of cold drinks ready for all golfers and over 120 cold drinks were sold through the Pro Shop alone on the day you played.
Nice local course - needs more work
7am Tee time -- nice 3 hr. round walking. Greens are in great condition, hard not receptive. Traps need some love -- lots of weeds growing. They are starting to loose the fairways -- lots of browning out spots. Tees are "OK".
Glad you enjoyed a nice fast walking round.
Bunker restoration has been addressed earlier in other reviews. It is coming as soon as we can get through this current drought situation.
High ground brown spots are different then 'losing fairways'. The fairways are healthy just thirsty!
Enjoy your golf this summer.
Hadn't played in 6 years
Had been 'locked down' with Covid for 3+ months, first boys outing in a long time. The three of us had not played in a long time, variable experience with the game. Staff was very friendly. Few people on the course which allowed us to play slow, as our skill set was rusty to say the least. Lost my wedge during the game and found and brought back by the staff! We had a wonderful time, definitely going back!
BH GLNG league
Course is in great shape however having to prepay online should be changed now. Also they should have drinks and/or snacks now for golfers. Maybe get a good truck to come over and park. Thanks
Keith, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed conditions.
Just to clarify, out tee sheet is two weeks ahead of changing protocols so what can be done is not always what should be done. We have over 1600 different golfers a week so we are doing out best to keep all the golfers and staff safe during these times.
Also, snacks and drinks were available both out the parking lot staff member and from the Pro Shop window. Sorry you missed them, they are there every day.
Enjoy the remainder of the golf season.
Mattawang is always a pleasant experience, all about the golf. Course is in great shape.
Thanks for the nice review. We are glad you enjoy what Mattawang is about!
Hope to see you again soon.
i made my reservation at the course website (Mattawang). I called to cancel 24 hours +to cancel and get a credit on my card. i was told to go to Golfnow.
Called by phone, automation told me to go to the website. Which then told me to go to reservations page to cancel and get credit. Because I did not make the resevation at Golfnow there was no record of my tee time to cancel. It then said go to "Chat" which i did for two days and it never started.
I called the golf course again to be sure they knew i could not make the tee time.
My credit card was charged by Golfnow and I have no way to get refunded.
Saturday golf at Mattawang
Course in great condition from fairways to greens. The staff did a great job managing the groups as they went out . Very friendly staff. Pace of play was good until the 7th hole when things got backed up due to very slow play of a few groups. I will go back and play again. Good value for the cost of green fees.
Thank you for joining us for some Beautiful Saturday golf. We appreciate you taking the time to review your experience.
Glad you enjoyed the staff and the value. We were aware of the groups in front of you and tried to move them along. Hopefully we see you again soon!
Thanks for making the trip once again from Staten Island. We appreciate your continued support.
Played today with a buddy. Course is in great shape. I love the spread out tee times. Hope all courses keep the spread out times. Not pushed. We weren’t on top of anyone. Gives you a chance to take a little look for Your errant tee shots. Greens were in great shape.
Darryl, we are glad you enjoyed conditions and the Covid restrictions that have been put in place.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer golf!
Thumbs up for Ranger Joe
Overall average experience. Decent greens and fairways were OK. Bunkers need a lot of work. With walking only a lot of slow groups. Ranger Joe was on the case and kept things moving.
We are glad 'Ranger Joe' made your day go better.
