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.

Great shape

Played here many times. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Layout of all three nine holes is fair and challenging. Tee boxes and sand traps need work.

Fun course

Course was in good shape. The three 9 hole setup is Challenging. I’m a senior golfer so some holes played long for me. Got off right on time. Starter had good control. Cart girl on course. Course in good shape with the exception of the idiots that don’t fix their green pitch marks. Will play again. .

Great Day to play golf

This course has three nines Oak Dogwood and Spruce.
If the starter gives you Spruce at the turn be careful of other groups jumping in front you this will slow you down and usually happens later in the day when the starter is gone
I played Oak and Dogwood and although dogwood appears to be a carbon copy of oak it’s greens are in better shape and forces you to play fades and draws
Enjoyed my round and took ten skins
