The pace of play is very slow and It starts with the starter who doesn’t manage the start. Sending off threesomes when there were singles that could fill out a foursome is unexplainable. No ranger on the course to keep things moving. 2 hours 50 minutes for front 9.

No drinking water in the course nor ball washers. At 75 degrees winter is over.

Just feels like no one is running the course.

Course is very fun but I’ll try others before coming back.

It took us TWO HOURS 50 MINUTES to finish the front nine. There was no marshall getting groups to keep pace. There was no beverage cart. It was miserable. We waited on literally every single tee box - 18 out of 18!

One of my first rounds for the season. We were behind a 4some that had an instructor who gave them all lessons on the course. If that wasn’t annoying enough, the instructor himself was bad. He put balls into the woods and in the water like he didn’t know what he was doing. They would stand around each person’s shot before going to their own ball and then proceed to wait for the instructor to show up and coach them on the shot. There was no group within 2 holes in front of them. Never waved us through. Made the round super long and super annoying.

Over priced for winter with the conditions. It had rained the night before but it was a free for all with no cart path only rules. Course was definitely not up to par with their maintenance with multiple lies being unplayable. Maybe this course would be better in season but there's a lot to be desired especially paying winter rates over $60. $40 at most for winter is more reasonable

If there were "winter rates" for playing there, I still would not go back. The fact I payed $60 is my fault; the fact there is literally more geese feces than blades of grass is theirs. Practice green was completely covered as was the whole of the course. Generally i'd have expected more effort as temps start warming up however, their groundskeepers must still be hibernating....oh and whats the point in having a tee time if everyone goes out whenever they please....hindsight is 20/20

Very slow pace of play because of a group in front of us. At first there was no place to past as it was crowded but after 9 holes the group fell further behind so we skipped the 10 th hole and just passed them

Time of play 4 hours & 45 minutes

Too long!

Greens in best shape i've seen (granted par 3's take a good deal of punishment). Pace of play is always an issue here, course should be proactive, reactive. Overall very enjoyable round, minimal leaves for this time of year.

Played a foursome midweek. First time here. One of the nicest city courses ever played. Well cared for overall and forgiving fairways. Mostly par 5s and 4s with a couple of 3s. Only one water hazard, but numerous sand traps. Will surely be back.

I have 3 issues with the round of golf I played 1. We arrived extra early to hit balls at range but was told they ran out of balls ( it was a mid morning ) 2. Play was very slow and we did not see a ranger at any time. Also no beverage cart at all. 3) I was later charged for greens fee because 1 of our foursome was a no show. The person at the register never questioned when we checked in so I figured it was not a big deal. I have definitely done this in the past without a problem but have now learned my lesson. It’s an average course, that I have not played in a long time, but since I grew up playing on it , I thought I would give it a chance. Needless to say it is my last time. There are much nicer courses that cost just as much.

Driving range, which is rare to warm up on. Fun lay out. Not terribly difficult but has some length and they keep it in good condition. Fun round. Took 25mins to drive from midtown Manhattan.

La Tourette: Always nice coming back to the first course I every stepped foot on. Course is in fabulous shape. Fairways and greens for the most part was lush. Even though my first time playing this year, its as good as I've ever seen it. Greens played soft and in great shape. Putts were faster than what I usually remember. Only drag was waiting on every hole on a late morning Wednesday. Due to La Tourette's "players club", this place gets a lot more play than before in years past. From the course perspective, its obviously better to sell more tee times.

Anyways, one of NYC's better design layout. This place has moderately wide fairways so its forgiving off tee shots. Playing from the back tees should challenge most low handicap players. This is after all where the NYC amateur takes place. FYI, not an easy course to get to if you don't drive.

I don't know how anyone gives this course a high rating. It is a boring, bland, blah of a course. Everything straightaway, and nothing special whatsoever about the greens or green complexes. There are a half-dozen other NYC muni's far better than this.
