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 course

Over all I had a great experience. It wasn’t overly crowded, so the pace was really nice. Some of the fairways get a little tight so you might have a few people playing their shot off your fairways, but everyone was nice about waiting or hurrying through. Again overall I had a great time.

Pretty Brutal

5 and a half hour round, no ranger on the course to be found maintaining pace. Lots of errant shots flying all around you, the course is tight and tee boxes are ontop of greens. Nearly got hit about ten times today. Price is reasonable if you’re walking, but charging $20 per rider is a bit ridiculous for an average course at best.

Green speeds played very inconsistent hole to hole.

Most enjoyable round

831am tee time and the most enjoyable 4.5 hour round I’ve had in years. Pace was good, course is in good condition, starter gave all the necessary pointers, and a nice clubhouse for the beginning and end. 5/5 stars

Excellent Group Outing

Had a terrific time at the Club at Silver Lake. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating, the course location is excellent, and the conditions were perfect, all for a mini-tournament that I set up yearly. The course itself was tough, it does play longer than the yardage would indicate but the group's issues were on up-and-down greens and with the thick rough on approach shots. The narrowness of the fairways was taken for granted. Tricky course, but super enjoyable and a terrific outing. Would highly recommend.

Tricky course for golfers w a fade

Pretty good course conditions. $80 w a cart is a little steep. There are always some idiots who take forever but luckily the sheriff will come and ask if you can pass.

A lot of water on the right hand side of fairway and a few doglegs to the left which make it difficult for fade golfers.

Would probably play local in Jersey If I had the choice but I meet a friend from brooklyn in Staten Island. Good middle spot

One of my faves

Nice challenging course. Lush and we’ll maintained. Not super long but it tight so it puts a premium on your irons. Some pretty holes that vary quite a bit. No “cookie cutter” back and forth holes here.
