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.

Michael g

Played this course many times this year and today it was in spectacular condition. Even the residue from the Canadian Geese was gone. The only negative was a seagull took my ball on a par three hole

Hidden Gem on Long Island

The course that sits on the southern shore of Oceanside. with a course layout that makes you use all of the clubs in your bag. 7 holes with water on your tee shots. The course is in excellent condition. The greens have very interesting breaks that will test your green reading. A great walking course. Have fun!

Didnt play

Arrived at course for my reservation to find out they cancelled my reservation. Weather was inclement the day prior however they were putting people out starting at 11am. When I arrived at the course they told me they called and sent an e-mail, did not receive an email, I did have a missed call. But they went and cancelled my reservation with the explanation of ya sorry we cancelled it we can get you out at 3pm. Ridiculous. Better get my money back for the reservation fee.

Grounds crew are awful

Reed off at 740 am. Played a great round. Very enjoyable. Course could have been marked off for ground under repair in many sections due to the wet weather the last few days but they get a pass in times like these. However, on the 16th hole we were all putting and 4 grounds crew men drove up onto the green and began putting in a new hole. I asked them politely to wait till we finished as there was an entire hole open behind us. They completely ignored my request and not only continued working but also started cutting the grass around the green. I have never seen this happen anywhere.

Geese T*** & leaves everywhere

Geese t*** everywhere( Typical Middle Bay) and leaves everywhere with fall. How are you unable to contain the leaves when you’re a course by the water lol. Quite pathetic and that’s me putting it mildly. This time last year I played this course 8 more times than I have this year. That should say something. I don’t know why I keep giving this dump by the water chances and my money. Oh, wait. It’s a good reason to leave the Dix Hills/greater area and play a course by the water and change the scenery. Atleast this place got the green situation fixed. The ball actually rolls smoothly now. Also, last time I was here 3 holes had greens where there were literally divots in them. I should’ve taken pictures and uploaded to golf advisor.
