Nice course ... some greens in disrepair

First time, won’t be last time. I do like the course layout. Some greens were in disrepair - reportedly due to region/wetness. The carts had GPS - nice. Maintenance people were cutting fairways, etc during round - a bit annoying. It was a rainy day so only finished 16 holes.

Beautiful course with some great views but some of the greens and some of the rough and fairways were in need of attention.

Wet Rot

Was invited to play this course by a friend and jumped at the chance to finally play this gorgeous course. We got 78 degree weather with NO wind off the surrounding waters. Just a perfect day. We started with driving some balls at the range station just outside the clubhouse while deer grazed on the grass right below us. Our tee time was set for 7:14 but the starter let us go out in our twosome about 15 minutes earlier. The views from every hole are great. Water and greenery surround your eyes everywhere you look. The carts have GPS, which I have heard others complain about, with built in range finders which made club selection and stroke power much easier to determine. Holes 2 through 5 showed some wet rot but I'm giving 5 stars anyway because I can imagine how nice things will look once they address that. I would and will be back to play this beauty again.

Don’t wast your money

The Greens were horrible! Not worth playing . I complained to the Golf Course Management, they stated they would send me a golf voucher for future play, however, they never sent me the voucher? The golf management of the course is terrible. Don’t waste your hard earned money on this course. In Over 50 yrs of playing golf , this is the first time I ever complained about a golf course!

Too bad greens

First time here but greens are terrible. I don’t know they are under maintenance or not but paying $50 for weekday golf in this course is unacceptable. Never be back again!!!

Don’t waste your money playing this golf course

The Greens were horrible! I notified the golf management that I was very disappointed with the golf course conditions. They stated they would send me a golf voucher for future play, however , they never sent me the voucher? The management of the course is terrible. There are more than a couple of greens that are unplayable. The pro shop should have informed us of the egregious conditions? I will never play this Course ever again.

Horrible

The course staff didn’t tell us about the temporary green nor did they tell us about the six or seven greens that had fungus and aeration. The greens rolled horrible I’ve been playing grab meadow for years and now that the town took over it is run by kids who have NO CLUE. Waste of my time to play. And will never play again. Also the golf carts get restricted in the middle of fairways for about half the course

How could this happen!

Played yesterday at 6:17. In a word “ terrible”

The greens!! How could a professional greenskeeper completely lose
Half of the greens and the other half slow and bumpy like putting in 15 year old carpeting . It’s been hot for all the courses on Long Island !

Have to see to believe. Actual jokes on greens. Many grasses areas.
Would never play again for free!!

Let me make this clear this is only about today’s experience

Booked this tee time last minute yesterday for a 608 tee off this morning.
Get to the golf course to find they are not allowing electric carts on the course and they ran out of pull carts.
We were the 7 or 8 foursome out and they ran out of pull carts?
It is going to be in the upper 90 with heat index over 100

Toe this is unacceptable the excuse for no electric carts were rain the night before. We had minimal rain last night and haven’t they ever heard of cart path only????

Needless to say wake up 4 AM looking forward to a round of golf with my son and we wound up not golfing

Golfnow pls make sure I am refunded my fees for this course

Disappointed to say the least as I have golfed here before and it is a nice public course

Good

The irrigation is not ideal. Several holes are car path only. Some holes the portion of the fairway are car path only. In #8 hole there’s a lot of geese poops.
