To many pedestrians

The course was in ok condition especially with the pandemic going on. The fairway had outside pedestrians constantly crossing in front of us while teeing off. Joggers on the cart paths all day. Course needs a marshal desperately!

Dirt Tee Boxes

I understand that COVID impacted all operations, but there wasn’t one tee box with grass on it. All dirt. Front 9, there were more weeds in the bunkers than sand. Not worth $75 at all.

Needs work

Overall poor-ish conditions. Front nine conditions are worse than the back. Traps are a bit better on the back, mostly unplayable on the front. Prices haven’t fallen, so put the work and maintain better please.

Want to be rudely greeted by shabbily dressed starters?!!.....

..........then this is the perfect course for you!!!! Want to pay top dollar for burnt out fairways, dirt Tee boxes, and vine and weed ridden bunkers???!!!....Then this is your sort of place!!! Want to play six hour rounds, and never see a Ranger monitoring the pace??!!!....Yup, La Tourette is your sort of course.
I have been playing this course on and off for nearly twenty years, and the apathy this current staff exhibits, the shape of the course itself, has never been this bad. Sure, you say, it's starting to come back from the pandemic!!.No!! the truth is this place is all about taking your money, everything else to them is secondary. If you're travelling to this course from any other borough or city, do your self a favor, and go elsewhere!!!

La Tourette

Its beyond me how a you can charge $74.00 for a course that is obviously not being maintained.
The T'boxes, and fairways were barren. Spotty grass areas and hard pan dirt in the fairways. The worst were the sand traps. Over grown with weeds, no sand and all hard pan. What does it take to put clean sand in sand traps so you can actually play out of them.
The only thing that would keep me from recommending 0 stars on conditions was the greens. They actually were in good shape.

Could Be a Staten Island Gem

As a native SI'er, played on Saturday - enjoyed it - finished it in 4 hours Greens are in good shape but the traps and fairways need work.

Rough Conditions

American Golf has apparently abandoned any maintenance on the course other than the greens were for the most part were extremely playable. Fairways are sparse and rock hard, bunkers are nothing more than curt patches overgrown with weeds, totally unplayable. For the $39 I paid with cart and it was local, it’s just ok, but I can’t recommend right now and will not return until next year.

Too slow, 6hr round

Unfortunately it was a very slow round, in addition the fairways and greens are not in very good condition. I guess due to Covid the course has cut back on maintenance.

Terrible Conditions

I’ve never written a review before, but I felt it necessary after today’s round. This course has been completed neglected. Tee boxes have been played down to sand with little to no grass, to the point where footing is loose below. Fairways are completely burnt out with very little distinction between them and the rough. Green-side bunkers are not cared for and the greens themselves are sandy and very burnt out, aeration aside. Myself and buddies, all avid golfers, were left angered after paying $75+ to play this course. I hate to leave such a poor review, but hopeful that this helps others to steer clear.

What a joke

This course is awful parking lot is like a dirt road. Me and my friend and the gentleman we played with parked in what we thought was a spot and they left nasty notes on the windshield of our cars telling us to use our heads when there was nothing painted on the ground. They said it was a maintenance entrance which is also a joke. The course looks like hasn’t been maintained all year aside from a lawnmower. We had to look out for a guy with a motorcycle trying to jump the mound near the dirt trench they call a bunker on the second hole it was like moto cross on the golf course. The bunkers were horrible grass and weeds in almost every one. There were random people walking around the course out for their Sunday stroll. If that isn’t enough when we were leaving there were people walking there dogs on the fairway letting there dogs take a dump. The icing on the cake is they have audacity to charge $75.50 to play here on a Sunday. I would never go back there ever again. And I wouldn’t recommend you go there either. I told my buddy take a picture because you’ll never comes back to see this place again.
