COURSE WAS INGREAT SHAPE. EVEN THOUGH WEATHER WAS NOT GOOD GROUNDS PEOPLE WERE OUTREMOVING LEAVES AND MANICURING THECOURSE. HAS A MIX OF FARILY EASY HOLES WITH SOME DIFFICULT ONES. THE PRICE I PAYED WAS UNUSUALLY LOW FOR SOME REASON THAT IS NOT A NORMAL PRICE. IF YOU TRY TO PLAY THE COURSE AS A NON RESIDENT IT IS FAIRLY EXPENSIVE. IT IS THE HUNTINGTON TOWN COURSE.

Great course and layout. Very nice condition, greens in good shape but grass on greens a little long making them a little slow but overall still good. Watch out for the Geese on holes 7 and 8. Pace of play ok. Staff always friendly. Will play here again.

Played this course before and after playing 12 holes in 5 hours we called it quits. However on this date,we teed off at 7:10 AM and finished in less than 4 hours. This is a very nice course and the lay out is excellent and challenging.. The course was in very good shape and the greens rolled true. If you haven't played this course before, I highly recommend it.

The staff is very friendly and the course is in great shape. The course can be challenging especially if the drive is hit off the fairway. Often one should pull out a long iron or hybrid instead of a driver. The greens are quite small and slow. So accuracy is important coming into the greens. The bar and restaurant are always very welcoming. However the pace of play was terrible. There was no starter in the booth and a significant amount of twosomes which should have been matched with 2 other people. When I signed in a friend just came in after 10 holes and couldn't take the slow pace. Where is the marshal? The front desk has the latest GPS and the computer maps out the slow play. After 14 holes and couldn't take the wait anymore. You are saving money on staff but the pleasure is taken out of the round.

One of the best weather days of the year so went here for a nice late afternoon round. They had a bunch of high schoolers there and no ranger. Round took 5 1/2 hours and all the other groups out were twosomes and threesomes waiting.

That's not the worst part. The greens were slower then anything I've played in 10 years and I play over 50 rounds a year. Everyone was cursing about them. The cups were stale and rounded over like they had not been changed in days.

This is not golf. Go to Bethpage.

Long round but at least the people there know how to manicure a golf course.

I played on a weekday afternoon and the pace was so bad. We were waiting at least 5 minutes on every tee. They definitely need a ranger and I didn't see one at all. The course is really nice and can definitely be difficult. The greens are very small and the back nine has some tricky holes where if you miss right your second shot can be from the bottom of a cliff. Overall nice course but the pace really killed me.

This is a public course. It is a simple layout that is made a little more interesting by the hilly terrain of Long Island's north shore. This was a beautiful day, and the views of the marshland and of Long Island Sound are really beautiful. The tees, and fairways are in very nice shape for this course. The greens, were not in bad shape but are slow and long, as they normally are. If you are used to short, fast, rolled greens you will have to make an adjustment. Overall it was a great day. $27.00 with a cart through Golf Now was a great value.

The reception desk and Stephan could not have been any nicer. The course is in great shape and very challenging. A shot off the fairway could easily land behind a tree, so one is penalized. Most of the greens are very small so accuracy is key. We had waited at most tees but the pace of play was decent and a 4 1/2 round. The only issue I had was the greens. They are in great shape but they are extremely slow, probably the slowest I have played this summer.
