Bunkers n bathroom
Bunkers were in horrible shape. It was like hitting out of wet cement. The downstairs bathroom was nothing short of disgusting
Between golf now and Latourette they double charged me for this round. Despite filling a foursome on the course.
A total disgrace!!
Too Close to Rain
Overall the round was enjoyable factoring in the time of year and after a heavy rain. Played at a pace of 4 hrs & 15 mins due to cart path only, watery conditions, lift clean and play
Held up on Staten Island
Inexcusable items that if you notified golfers they wouldn’t be an issue.
1. Full price for a course covered in sand and aeration. They were even aerating the fairways during play. ( I understand that this needs to be done. However other courses warn you when you book. ).
2. Not one ball washer on the entire course. It’s mid April - and they are charging summer rates.
3. Pace of play - under 2 hours for front nine. Slowed to snails pace on the back. 3 groups magically appeared on the back. Does the early bird back 9 end at some point? Waited every shot on the back.
It’s a great lay out - probably my favorite on Staten Island but they know they have you so they take full advantage.
First time writing a review but experience was so bad it needs to be heard. Awful course, staff provides zero help and they still have the audacity to charge for one golfer out of a foursome not showing up. Range wasn’t open for a 8:20 tee time. Pro shop wasn’t open so had to wait 20 minutes in line at food area to pay for round. No starter. Save yourself the completely overly priced $75 round and find a different course.
Terrible experience. No starter. I realize it is early in season but they are charging full freight. No signs on holes. Worst part of all was there was literally crap ALL OVER the course. I am not exaggerating.
Enjoyed the round, play was fast, played as a 3some. Impressed with the greens, big, alot of undulation, visually challenging, surprising slopes. Fairways appear narrow but open up beyond tee box. I enjoyed the course and am looking forward to playing again soon
Please Bring Back The Ambassadors
It started pretty smooth but after the 7th hole things got very slow. I was hoping someone will come along to move the playing pace. Huge disappointment and waste of time after the 12th hole I left, I didn't see myself continuing in such a slow pace,,,, it's a great course but slow playing pace.
Nice course , very challenging playing for the first time.
My only complaint is that it stormed half way and did not get a rain check
Slowest Round of the Summer
Possibly because one or more of the other Staten Island municiple courses had outings scheduled, today's round at LaTourette was excruiatingly slow to the point that 9 holes took 3 hours. This is a shame as the course was in great condition.
The pace of play was the only major issue I had here, but important to keep in mind I was playing on a weekend. The conditions were better than what I expected. I enjoyed the lay out of the course overall.
Course I’m awesome condition, but pace of play was horrific.
LaTourette at 10:37 am
Got off on time and played 18 without any lengthy wait. Four or five tee boxes were spotty to bare. Those were seeded, not sodded, and the seeds were pretty well trampled. Otherwise greens are running nice and true. Basically, a nice track in good shape.
pick up the pace
had a 10:22 tee time on 6-27-18 . the group in front of us 3 men and lady , all drove the ball well 2nd shots all ok . then chipping and putting came into play . never saw so much lining up chips , practice swings at least 3 from one of the group on his chips and his putt were no better . at one point prior to chipping ,green clear , he faced us and took 2 practice swings , addressed the ball took 2 more practice swings , walks away from ball then stands behind it and lines it up again , returns to the ball and hits it . this continued for most of the round , after the 12th hole and the tome being 1:42pm we decided to leave . that group was just about 2 holes behind the foursome in front of them !!
Never Disappoints, Nice Course
I've played this course numerous times and it never disappoints, the fairways are trimmed shorter than usual so finding your ball isn't challenging, lost only one ball. You will love the greens they're in spectacular condition, the 10th hole never looked better, it always disappointed. I would recommend this course to intermediates and experienced as well.
