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.

Weekend play

$60 without cart, $20 for cart seems avg price on ok to good courses.
Conditions were good. It’s fall so plenty of leaves on ground, could use a clean up.
Only complaint is pace of play.
9am tee time, started about 935, had about a 5:35min round. Very slow pace of play and No ranger enforcing pace.
Besides that, not bad for a course outside of LI.

Perfect weather

terrible management

We played Labor Day morning. There was a early golf outing that ran late. Management clearly couldn't figure out how to run an outing and plan for golfers after. We had a 9am tee time and didn't get out until 10:30. A complete fail on what could have been an enjoyable round.

Staten Island’s gem

Started coming down here last fall but first time on a weekday and is even better without the weekend crowds. For midsummer, greens and fairways in great shape. Tee boxes and maintenance overall very good. The food and service out at the grill and inside is always fast and very friendly. Definitely worth the trip passed dyker and other public courses we usually play in queens to visit silver lake.

Old muni still has character

Rough around the edges, this public course still offers plenty of challenges. Elevation changes on almost every hole and some holes are very narrow! Greens were in good shape and running well. Nice clubhouse but didn’t see anyone eating, just drinks.

Disappointed

The course was not in a good condition, fairways look beat up, pace of play was snail pace. Balls we're coming at me from every direction when on the tee boxes. Just a poor layout or just poor players. I won't play here again.

Slow pace

Took us 3 hours to play 9 holes. Left after that. Started at 9am on Sunday. Either go during the week or at 6am on the weekend, it’s overbooked otherwise.
