Silver Lake Golf Course sits along Staten Island's North Shore, offering a scenic and challenging layout that is one of the five boroughs' best-kept secrets. The course has a classic layout with postage stamp-sized greens and narrow fairways. At just over 6,000 yards from the back tees, the golf course appears shorter than it plays. The tight layout demands accuracy throughout especially on the lengthier holes, of which there are several. The course offers interesting risk-reward opportunities and holes 12 through 14 are considered by locals the "Amen Corner" of the North. The entire layout will test your shot-making abilities. In addition to the challenging round, Silver Lake is known for having consistently excellent conditions with some of New York's best greens, which is why it has garnered a strong following among local players.

Nice as always, although the geese dropping is hard to contain the greens were well kept and fast.

Plays long and sweet for a shorty

This course rocks. I'm about at bogey average golfer. This course is great. Well kept greens, everything. Even though it's only 5,000 yards (or so my friend told me) it plays long. Several par 5s. The par 3's are long too and some of them are over big water and cat tails. Exciting stuff. Hilly course too, which are my fave. Nice parking lot. Full bar. All pros no cons, baby.

Good for a city course

Somewhat challenging. Bad drainage after a heavy rain, a lot of mud and unseeded areas. Best of 3 public courses on Staten Island

Recently airated greens filling in nicely, after last nights monsoon I’m sure the greens will be nice soon!

Continue to overcharge for carts! 21 $ per rider is excessive! 42 dollars on top of greens fees is a lot particularly when it’s “cart path only”, enough already!
