About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 7025
Slope 0
Rating 0.0
Type Public
Middle Island Country Club offers 27 holes of championship golf. It is one of Long Island's most popular public golf courses. It sits almost right at the center of the island, surrounded by the Lustengarten Nursery. The holes are divided into three nines and played as different 18-hole combinations. The Oak/Spruce Course begins with the shortest of the three nines, but there are some tricky doglegs that can make it play longer than what it says on the scorecard. Middle Island's Spruce nine was renovated in 2008, which added an island green on the par-4 seventh and more tee boxes to allow for women, seniors, and championship play. It's the most player friendly of the three nines, with wide fairways and generous greens that give you the freedom to grip it and rip it.

Nice local course in good condition. The greens did have a lot of ball marks but other than that everything else was nice. Can’t complain about finishing 18 in 3 hours.

Meh

Every green had a billion ball marks on them. Two guys were were paired up with didn't fix one ball mark. Couldn't take a hint when I repaired their ball marks right in front of their faces. Bunkers aren't maintained. Rained last night, you would think they would have crew out early to rake bunkers before play began but that didn't happen. Other golfers didn't rake bunkers either. Just about every bunker that I passed had at least a few foot prints in them. Most bunkers also full of a variety of little pebbles up to full rocks about half the size of golf balls. You also need a sledge hammer to get the ball to roll all they way to the hole on the greens.

Temps were in the 90's and the course did not have any water available on Spruce or Dogwood courses. Place was packed, had a time for 8:16am and didn't tee off until about 8:30am. Through the first six holes there were at least 3 groups on each hole.

Wow! Sticky humidity day I was playing

All holes of 18 were perfect shape. All levels of golfers should be like them, but greens were not pefect. Some of greens were so slow and others were little more faster than slow green. If this golf course wants to be favorable course for golfers, they have to fix this problem. They must hire green keepers to do their job. Except green, everything was perfect for playing golf in humid day.

Middle Island Round 3

I have played here each of the last 3 decades multiple times but never regularly and it has gone through multiple owners and varied conditions. Driving in it is unspectacular and the parking lot and clubhouse are outdated and not well maintained. However the course is in above average condition and the greens roll well. It is not crowded and pace of play is good as long as those in front of you keep the pace. Not a lot of interaction with rangers and golfers tend to be less experienced so you can run into a slow group. Good course

Very Nice Afternoon

It was a hot day so the course was pretty quiet. We played as a foursome with one golfer who was a beginner. By the time we reached the back nine there were very few foursomes on the course. Finished in 4 hours. Fairways and greens were in very good condition. No cart girl and few amenities at the clubhouse.

The starter called Sal Cooper is terrible

We finished 9 holes in Dogwood in 2 hours because our twosome started the tee time at 6:48am. The starter called Sal Cooper made us waited for 1 hour 45 minutes before we could start another 9 holes. We paid $68 prime time rate to play only 15 holes in 5.5 hours mostly due to the long wait between the two 9 holes. We could not continue as we needed to go somewhere. The starter Sal Cooper's poor management of distributing players to the three 9-hole courses ruined our mood on a perfect golf day. Instead of following the order of play based on tee time and the turn around time from 1 course to another course, he chooses who he likes to cut the waiting line.

Green not cleared of morning do

The new management must be cutting cost. Had early tee time. Office wasn’t even open when we arrived.

The first 9 greens still had water on them from the morning do. Will not return. And will tell all golfer stay away from Middle Island CC. Spring Lake & Mill Pond closer & great experience. Stay away from Middle Island CC.

Greens were horrible

I love to play this course. The general area of the course was great; except the greens were not in good shape. There were so many ball marks from people not repairing them. I do not know how to remedy people being so insensitive to the rules of golf. Otherwise it was a great day
