The Golf Club at Middle Bay is located on Long Island's south shore overlooking the barrier islands of Jones Beach, Point Lookout, and Lido Beach. Nearly every hole looks out across water. Though the golf course is just an hour outside of New York City, you'll feel as though you've been whisked off to an out-of-town resort. The layout has a challenging design that will test your accuracy with tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers. Wind will also be a factor on this golf course. The Golf Club at Middle Bay is a tough but fair layout that players of all skill levels will enjoy. In addition to the golf course, there is also a driving range available.

Course layout is great, everything moves well and greens were well maintained. For a little adventure grab a surfboard just $15 more than a cart but very fun and enjoyable.

Fine course

Plenty of variety on the course. Playing off Blues is a good challenge for high single digit handicap. Greens good but could be a touch faster. Some great holes with views along the water. It’s a little flat but fun course. Worth the trip from the city especially now as traffic by JFK is light.

Never disappoints

I’ve yet to have a bad experience at Middle Bay and today was no exception. The course is in excellent shape and the greens are in perfect condition. The only negative on the day was a 25-30 mph onshore wind that made club selection and ball flight a real challenge on almost all holes.
