A challenging course, yes but not your typical picturesque long island tree lined course. A very unique course nonetheless.

The view of the yachts in the harbor was fantastic. The course was in impeccable shape and the scenery was beautiful.

This golf course has always been----and painfully, remains---the combination of the best potential and the worst reality in American golf. The course was just sold to a NYC real estate developer, and the people who are in charge at the course now are less rude but just as clueless as the old, snotty bunch who used to be here. Its...

I tried to golf at this course a couple months ago and had the worst experience. We drove over an hour to this course after scheduling a tee time in the morning. We had a discount voucher that let us golf at the course for a much cheaper rate than normally priced. Once we got to the course, we were... More

I'm nowhere near a great golfer but I can hold my own on less challenging courses like Indian Island, Calverton Links etc but this course is craggy and difficult and frustrating and wonderful!! In my experience the staff wasn't exactly friendly but who cares? Just get me to the first tee and all that disappears. Can't wait to go back!

If you love links golf, you'll love this course. The east end of LI is sorely lacking in high quality public golf, but this course is brilliantly designed, has always been in good shape, and has a friendly staff to boot. Highly recommended.

A beautiful links course, in very good shape, with murderous tall fescue grass all over. Add to that the strategically placed bunkers and occasional water, and you have a tough but enjoyable course. If you are not in the fairway you better bring a ball-hunting dog and a lot of patience. Great course!

Do not waste your time. The Director of Golf was the rudest person I have ever dealt with, I believe his name was Labadore. We drove over an hour to get to the course only to be told that someone on his staff booked our tee time without proper authorization. He told us he would not let us out on... More
