Thought the course was great , staff was helpful,
Greens were a little slow but enjoyed them
Also could use a little more ranger appearances
Play was a little slow as a foursome , we had to wait on a twosome, but I will book again.

That’s weekend play

Thanks. Jerry T

No ranger

No ranger out there, got bumped from our team time so two foursomes could play together. Ended up behind them and a 5 hour round. Course conditions were as expected but staff was awful

muni with very slow greens

nice views of the sound and layout of the back was nice. Front was short and tight. Greens were so slow on a Friday morning. Played with a local who told us they usually are that slow.

Hire a Real Greenskeeper

Ridiculously slow and bumpy greens. Cut too high, never rolled, it’s like putting on temporary greens. And what a waste of a good layout! I regularly play Bethpage, Smithtown Landing, Timber Point and other courses through GolfNow and the condition of the greens at Crab Meadow are so slow and lacking in true roll that it will ruin your round. It’s been a constant complaint among players for years but head greenskeeper refuses to react to the feedback. Here’s a tip ....go visit any other local or private course and compare their greens to yours. Find out what a stimpmeter is and buy a machine to roll the greens. Please!

Greens are slow and bumpy.

Course has gone downhill.
Years ago used to be a nice track and fun layout.
Now they keep the greens real fuzzy, bumpy and slow and no one cares here.

Many nicer options nearby.

Crab Meadow Golf Course

Crab Meadow is a very nice course with some beautiful vistas . The course was in good condition from fairways to greens and was fun to play. The sand bunkers were in good condition with real sand. The course is open and fairly challenging and even forgiving when it comes to stray shots. Well. worth the Price! .

Gps in carts

A couple of years ago they installed Gps in carts, which is nice. However they also have a computer that keeps you out of the fairway.. cart will come to complete stop. Get use to it after a while

Fantastic conditions

I’ve been playing Crab Meadow for many years. It is never been in better shape. The greens are not the fastest but that that’s not take away from the experience. It is a fantastic layout and a hidden gem.

Disappointing

Was very excited to play this course, however I was let down. The rate included a golf cart but the staff did not allow cart use while we saw other courses in the area using carts. The weather was perfect and the fairways were dry and at a minimum it could have been cart path only. The greens are my next complaint. The greens are too thick and looking like they have not been properly maintained. The view however was very nice of the sound. Was disappointed overall.

Terrible

This a 20$ pitch and putt. Greens cut to the same length as fairways, what a joke. No maintenance, should be called crab grass and dandelion. But hey, great sand traps!!
