SLOW BUMPY FUZZY GREENS

Been playing here over 40 years.
Greens are being kept in worst conditions I have ever seen.
Such a shame. Other courses have same amount of play with nice quick true greens. Not here.
Traps are bare too.

Almost!

Tee boxes and most fairways in good condition.
Some amazing views and challenging holes.
Unfortunately the greens are unacceptable. I have given this course a chance a few times the last 3 years. Fix the condition and consistency of the greens and it’s a gem. Unfortunately they look and play like a cheap nine hole course for beginners.

Early AM 9 hole

Crab Meadow is a beautiful course, but you will encounter green maintenance and sprinklers during the 7 am 9 hole rate. If you don't like that, plan an 18 or play another time; however, for the price, its an awesome way to start the day

Rough condition, poor service

1:31 tee time pushed back to almost 2pm. Course was in very rough condition. Some greens looked like craters on the moon - no one fixing divots etc.
greens were so high it was like playing on thick carpet - EXTREMELY slow and poor playing.
Fix your starting routine, have better maintenance, and maybe we will return.
Not too pleased with my experience today - weekday as well.

Surprised

I was pleasantly surprised, got an early morning tee time, it was all that was left on Golfnow. The greens were in good condition, fairways in great shape, I booked it again, just a note, I only played the back nine.

Worst greens in NY

I have been playing this course for years and although the greens are never great, they are an embarrassment now. The management at the course keeps changing but the super remains and continues to do a horrific job. The stimp must be a 4 with no trueness to them at all. Not to mention the course always provides a slow round and no ranger to keep it manageable. Coupled with the gps system on the carts shut the carts off in the middle of the fairway regardless if if the course is wet, dry, summer spring or fall. If you like being infuriated this is the course for you

Love the course

If the greens were better/rolled, this would have been a 5 star.
