Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
give me a lil break, no?
Enjoyed layout of course but was greatly disappointed that i paid full price for non-advertised aeration a couple days previous. The greens were sparsely top-dressed and basically unplayable. I played with one of the course rangers who was off duty who also agreed. They reduce the fees at other courses, which is fair. I am a single digit player and I will go back if that says anything about the layout. Not sure the greens will ever be as good as Marine Park, but they remind me of how Dyker or Silver Lake play as local comparisons.
Good end of season shape. Only issue today was green aeration. Didn’t know if it was advertised or not.
Impossible to get the ball to the hole and keep it on line.
Otherwise tee to green conditions are still the best in the NY Metro area. This is my go to course.
Shot 77 with bad greens
Great course to Play-Feels like Westchaster
I played on a Sunday had a mid-afternoon tee time - check in was smooth and the course was in GREAT condition.
I check in as a single and was hoping to hook up with a group. when i got to the first tee. There was no starter in site and a foursome had just tee off. So I waited awhile to give some gap to the group in front and tee off. By the four hole
i notice a twosome behind me, so I slowed down a little so maybe we can link up an keep a nice pace with the foursome in front of me. but to my surprise they were HOLE HOPPING by the six hole they vanish. BTW no Ranger to be found. Saw the twosome later again on the 15th hole - AMAZINGLY - my round took about 4 hour. So I'm not complaining just wish a little more controlled and not a free for all.
Great course to play - PM tee time would be better.
Pace of play
Pace of play was good till the 10th hole when the course lets groups start on 10 also on the 1st hole was backed up over an hour delay cause of over booking.
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
Followed by mowers
First 12 holes we were followed by the mower. Cutting around the greens. Noise got frustrating after a few. They should be working backwards, 18,17,16.... so that they wont bother anyone twice. Once would be ok, the work has to get done. But these guys just one hole after the other, $73 for a round of golf on staten island should get you at least some quiet during the round. Also- we booked the first two tee times of the day, in order to finish early and not have to wait for slow golfers holding us up. Yet this course let people who were walking start out on the back nine. Front nine took us two hours, back nine took us three and a half hours to finish.
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.
