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.

Very nice course in very good shape, greens were hard and fast in excellent condition, fairways in good shape. Pace of play was a little slow at 5 hours but overall a good day. I would play again.

The course was in excellent condition. Several holes have blind tee shots making the round a little more difficult, but makes a good challenge for any golfer. Greens were great. Good round. Pace was fine, as well.

Very slow. Clear slow group a few holes ahead of us and ranger did nothing. They put a single out in between 2 foursomes with a threesome behind us. If they can clean this up, the course would be great to play.

I like to go out at a single most of the time so that I can relax and work on my fundamentals. I was paired up with 3 others who had made last minute reservations using GolfNow and I have to say they were all a pleasure to golf with. We all had played here before and even with the slow pace, there wasn't a complaint among us. Just pure fun. Golf-On!

Two foursomes in front of us did not know how to play golf and weren't even in proper golf attire. They were wearing tee shirts and sneakers. These all-male groups hit the ball 6-7 times to advance 100 yards! Two foursomes and a twosome were waiting on every hole. By the 9th hole the twosome left. We spoke to the ranger at least 5 times, but he did nothing. A six hour round is utterly ridiculous. Will never return here.

I always liked Smithtown Landing because it is the closest course to me on the East end and it is easy to get tee times. The course is fairly challenging and fun to play with a lot of different terrains. There are hills and valleys and undulating greens and some challenging par 3's. It is usually in pretty good shape and it is modestly priced for a course of this caliber. I would recommend Smithtown Landing to anyone. My friends and I usually play Smithtown Landing at least twice per month.

Smithtown landing is my go to course. First the staff is very friendly..The Pro shop and Starters always accommodating. The greens had been aerated which all courses are doing this time of year. The course was in great shape. I know its a weekend but a 5 hour round..I see a marshal driving around but I honestly believe he is not doing his job.. The halfway house has great hot dogs ans always a great stop.

Tough to rate this course in April, as the grass has not grown in yet and the greens were aerated. But the layout is great- no hole is the same, and there are lots of elevation changes. The round did not take long- a little over 4 hours-- but we had to wait on every hole for about 3-5 minutes per hole, which got annoying. But this is an old favorite and is always fun to play. Next month it will be in top condition.

Aside from the jerks behind us,this was an enjoyable round of golf. Weather was cold. Course conditions were very good for this time of year. Greens were very nice and ran true. Pace was good. If you haven't tried this course,i suggest you do as some holes are very scenic.
