Spruce/Dogwood at Middle Island Country Club
Located almost in the center of Long Island, the aptly named Middle Island Country Club is one of the area's most popular public golf courses. The 27-hole layout is divided into three nines that are played in 18-hole combinations. The Spruce/Dogwood begins with a front nine that underwent a major renovation in 2008. An island green was added to the par-4 seventh and another major addition was new tee boxes to accommodate women, seniors, and championship play. Middle Island Country Club's Spruce nine boasts generous fairways and large greens where there is plenty of room to grip it and rip it. Take advantage of the scoring opportunities on this nine because the Dogwood nine gets much more challenging. The back nine is a formidable test with narrows fairways and greens with surprising breaks that will have you wondering how you "just missed" it.

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.
Always glad to get out on a weekend
Course in good shape greens were very good pace of play spoiled by a very slow group ahead of us and no rangers to move them along
The course has made a lot of improvements
The course is I nice shape. Hopefully the clubhouse improvements continue but it has a ways to go. I wish the owners the best of luck
Nice Sunday Afternoon of Golf!
Great course. Each time I go, the course gets better. New bar area and outdoor patio are great. Kudos to the new owner(s) for the job they have done since taking the course over years ago.
Got fooled when I saw "Country Club"
Clubhouse is non-existent, Pro shop is pretty much non existent as well. No beverage carts around the golf course. Not sure if they have a restaurant/snack bar at the course. They did sell some instant breakfast sandwiches in the proshop.
The course was a disappointment as well. Bunkers have a little to no sand in them. Greens were rolling true but they were very very slow. Greens felt "spongy" if that makes any sense.
The layout of the course is actually nice. Challenging doglegs and some par 4's are long if you play from the tips. Water hazards on some holes. This course would be a gem if they do some maintenance on it.
The management is not friendly or professional. They only favor some people!
Course in great shape for January price good friendly staff but bathrooms need to be attended to
Course is in great shape Not overly challenging but very enjoyable to play Good shots are rewarded while bad shots are punished but not severely
Don't bother Because Sun sets Early here
This place closes at 6pm EVEN WHEN THE SUN SETS AT 7:15. If your like me and want to squeeze in 18 after work or late in the day, you expect to play until dark. Not at Middle Island. 6pm is time for them to go home and count their $. Unreal. Thank God there are 144 golf courses on Long Island that DON'T have bank hours. Adios
