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.

Best Public course in Nassau County

I've played pretty much every public course in Nassau at this point and Middlebay is far and away the nicest. Very well maintained, gorgeous scenery, challenging and long but manageable for any level golfer.
My understanding was that this was a private golf club prior to hurricane Sandy and it has since been renovated and opened to the public.
Will be making this my new go-to place to play.

Course greens are always nice

Love the course. Like I said in my title the greens are always nice and roll true. We had a fourthsome in front of us that was two holes behind. There were no ranges on the course to tell.

It’s about time!!

They are putting a TON of money into this course. I’ve been playing here for a decade now and finally they’re putting money into the course and clubhouse. Beautiful day. Greens were fast and the tee boxes and fairways were in very good condition.

Perfect weather

Glorious afternoon

Last minute booked a round to play with my dad. The weather was gorgeous. The breeze coming off the ocean made things very comfortable.

Despite COVID-19 protocol, the round played very well. Staff were friendly and attentive. The cart was super clean when given to us. The pace of play was normal. There was a drinks cart coming around, but all other amenities were unavailable.

Will definitely play again!
