Middle Island Country Club sits almost at the center of Long Island and has been one of the area's most popular public golf courses since first opening in 1965. The 27-hole course is divided into three nines that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The entire layout was carefully carved from 225 acres of the Lustengarten Nursery. Middle Island's Dogwood/Oak combination features narrow fairways lined with trees. The greens on the front nine are the most challenging of any of the three nines. They have subtle breaks that leave many golfers wondering how they "just missed" it. The Oak nine is almost as tough, but you will get a slight break. It requires careful course management since there are many doglegs that can make it play longer than what's indicated on the scorecard.

Nice course

Tee boxes Fairways are in good condition. Some hanging branches that hangout into fairway block shots makes course a little difficult. Staff is friendly.Good value for the money

Great conditions, Great Price

We played Oak Tree on the front nine and Dogwood on the back nine. Conditions were great. Some of the Par 5 wholes were a bit on the long side. A fun challenge. Price was also very attractive. Easy on, Easy off. I would definitely play there again.

Greens are terrible

I found that your course was in beautiful condition my only real issue that I had is that no one told me that your greens were Air rated anyone that plays golf know that putting is everything in golf I wish someone told me the greens were air rated I would have never have paid a lot of money to play on your course It should be the courses responsibility to notify anyone willing to play on your course that your greens have been air rated and if they are air raided you should reduce your price

Greatly improved Middle Island Country club

Overall the course was in very good condition. I haven’t played Middle Island in a couple years. The management and staff have done an excellent job improving the golf course. Fairways and tee boxes were very nice. The greens were just aerated so they were difficult to judge. They used sand nicely to make them smooth. We did not have a wait on any holes so our pace of play was perfect. Great job Middle Island Golf Course. We will be back! Food and drink prices were very good also.

Course was in really good condition

The fairways and greens were in really good condition. The course was crowded, but the pace of play was really good. This is my second time playing the course and would definitely recommend it. It seems like they are doing a lot of work to the course and can’t wait to see what it looks like next year. We had lunch in the club house and even though it is dated, the food was really good. Only suggestion would be to have a beverage cart on the course.

What a shame

I recall this course being well maintained, with nice greens, now it's in terrible shape, greens have patches of crab grass, rough is overgrown, 4-5 inches deep, ball cleaners without fluid, bunkers not raked from previous day. We arrived 25 mins early, and even though tee box was open, were told $25 extra per player to go out we waited 20 mins and went out at golf now price. New management not investing in course, really cheap new management..What a shame, this used to be a good course.,

A bunch of doglegs

We played Oaktree and Dogwood. I hook the ball and my partner fades the ball. Oaktree favors the fade and Dogwood favors the hook. This made it very fair to each of us and we had a great time. Nice layout and greens were in nice shape.

Pace of play was great. The course is in great shape. The rough was fair and the greens were somewhat slower than expected. Great golf course.

Mid island - Pretty good, but...

Nice track! Played Oak and Spruce. Fairways and greens were in pretty good shape. Good pace. Only real complaint was the sand traps were in bad shape. There really wasn’t sand in them, rather dirt or hard mud. In short, traps were brutal. Also, around and off the greens, better maintenance is needed as there were lots of holes and bare patches. Finally, minor point, no drink/food cart came till 14th hole. Thanks.
