Tight course with challenges off the tees. I enjoyed several of the holes: #4 which everyone talks about, the finishing sequence is challenging as it's so much longer than what you experience on the front 9, but my favorite sequence is probably holes 8-11. A few surprising elevation changes and good conditions overall. Only 3 stars though because it's yet another example of a course that's far too expensive if you're not a resident. It's basically a private course. I don't imagine too many people test their luck commuting the LIRR, but worth sharing. It's a good course for locals, just not worth the non-resident tax.

The fairways and greens were not very good. The tee box had so many divots that I had no room to put my tee. The narrow fairways made the course difficult.

I play here all the time. If you do not hit straight this course will frustrate you. Fairways are very tight and there are plenty of blind shots and elevated greens. I usually am not a straight hitter so this course is challenging for me but forces me to cut down on my swing and play my spots. It is definitely a course you should play well manicured .
