First one out, 807 tee time, half hour frost delay. No problem. The course is in phenomenal shape considering all things. Jan 10 and the greens are fast. Bumpy but fast. Jan10. Hot deal for $33. . cant beat it. Glad I went.

nice but overpriced

40 bucks for a very later afternoon tee time is very high considering there was no way to get 18 in. course in great condition, fairways and greens soft, very few divots. also being a city course courtesy goes out the window, nothing like having a ball land next to you, with no warning, on the fairway of 11 because the clowns behind you dont want to wait.

for what its worth cheaper golf with less people on a late afternoon can be found at south shore or silver lake

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.

Always good

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

Overcharged

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.
