About

Holes 18
Type Municipal
Par 72
Length 6114 yards
Slope 127
Rating 69.3

Smithtown Landing Golf Club offers both an 18-hole regulation course and a nine-hole executive course. The courses are open to the public on weekdays and to Smithtown residents on the weekends. The Regulation Course has a surprisingly tough layout with subtle but tricky contours throughout that cause some challenging lies. Mature trees line the fairways, making accuracy a necessity and there are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. At 6,114 yards from the back tees, it's a golf course that requires strategy over length, beginning with the first hole. This dogleg right par 4 will force you to carefully think about the placement off the tee. In addition to the two golf courses, Smithtown Landing also has two practice greens with surrounding short game areas and a driving range.

Greens in better shape after aeration a few weeks ago. Shot making course offers challenges for the shorter holes. Rough growing around the greens adds challenges.

SLOW

My friend and I decided to try this course on a Wednesday at 11:30 AM. The course is interesting there’s elevation and the greens are in good shape. The problem was that my round took five hours. It seems like a long time for a Wednesday at noon.

Ruined my round-Unacceptable

I have always given this course rave reviews.. The course layout, well kept and staff is terrific.

Perfect weather and pace of play was a bit slow but bearable. We make the turn about 3:00 and the starter let out groups on the back nine,, Getting old myself so careful how I word it but these guys were 78+ years old . The back nine was backed up and I stood there amazed.... We skipped ahead 4 holes and continued our play...I can only give 1 star...
