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.

"The Crib"

This is my home golf course , as I travel from Manhattan to S.I to get there , which requires a scenic ride on the ferry and quick bus trip . The course was in good condition , nearing perfection as the greens recover from recent air-aiding .(sp) . My game requires more practice so I can barely wait to return .
AND if you have time , have a meal at "The Veranda"

Tight fairways, good greens.

Got a nice price on Golf Now to walk 18 holes, but the reservation fee was as much as the round of golf.
Course was not too busy. Played with 2 other singles.

Course is a good time. Greens are fast and the course has plenty of elevation change. Course is narrow.

Keep your head on a swivel

It’s a fine course which plays fast, especially in the early morning. The prime drawback is that the layout, with narrow fairways alongside each other, means golf balls will be coming at you, fast and frequently.

It's Always Something

The last two times I was at Silverlake, they overbooked the course and we waited in line at many of the tee boxes. This time we get to the first tee box and we are informed that the back 9 is closed so we will have to play the front 9 twice. I think they should have a discount for this and at least tell us before we pay for a full round.

Nice course, well kept.

Tight layout, some tough greens often in very good shape. Back nine tends to be wet on 10, 13, 15 & 16. Greens fees are a bit high for a public course.

Cart Fees

20$ per golfer to use cart is excessive! I’ve gone out as a single having paid the 20$ fee and had starter strap on another golfers clubs who was “walking” to my cart free of charge! So if you and playing partner both ride in same cart why does it cost 40$ for that cart? Doesn’t need to be, 10$ each sounds about right. Greens are in great shape and taken care of compared to 2 other public courses on Staten Island. Yes it’s wet and tight in spots but very enjoyable while challenging at same time!
