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.

ALWAYS A GREAT PLACE TO PLAY

Love to play this course. On the date of play it began windy and then it became cold and windy. Tough to play in those conditions. The course was in great shape, as usual and this time the price was right thanks to GOLF PASS. I will be back in the spring.

Great Course By the water

Overall the course is very fun.. Links feel with mostly wide fairways ... once on the green, your putting skills are tested... If your game is not suited to play in the wind, then you may have a tough day... for the holes by the water take sometime and appreciate the views. Approach shots can test your skills as they can be protected by some bunkers... bunkers are not too difficult... but definitely bring your short game for this course.. staff is great and pace of play most days are solid 4hrs if the groups play well...

Columbus Day golf

Had a wonderful experience at this course. Pleasantly surprised to see the course in excellent condition. Pace of play was the only problem. we finished in just under 5 hours. Staff is very friendly. The layout of the course is challenging. A few holes are by the water so you get excellent views of the course as well.

This course is by the water so wind can be a challenge. The clubhouse is in a temporary trailer. Course was in excellent shape with exceptional areas that were wet.

Great day!

Had a 9:32 tee time and got paired up with 2 nice guys. We got around in 3.5 hours and never waited on a shot all day. Greens fully back from aeration and were in fabulous shape. Fairways also were in good shape also but there were some puddles in marked off areas. The guys at the course blamed a leak underground. Bunkers were in great shape also and each was raked nicely. The people were all friendly from the guys in the trailer to Lou the starter. Fun day for sure.

This course can be challenging!

As an intermediate golfer, love this course. Fairways & greens are in great shape, some drainage problems, but overall, worth the $ to golf there. Looking forward to the new club house being built. And the staff can’t do enough for you. Highly recommend!

Fun day

Played as a single and was paired with 3 nice guys. Played in 4 hours, and as always drainage is a problem. The fairways were fine and the greens are bouncing back from mild aeration. Can people please repair ball marks! I get a kick about people who have never repaired a ball mark and then complain about the greens being bad because of too many ball marks! Lou, the starter was great, and the guys at the cart barn kept my epic flash driver headcover that I lost last week, in there bin. Thanks guys, and many thanks to the person who turned it in!

Just too wet

T off late because of wet course conditions...which is understandably ok...but giving some people free driving range balls not others like me....being in front of the counter person??? Don’t get it ...I also pay the same greens fees as the other guys.... I will think twice before I play it again.
