Slow

Course so slow, 3 tee time out and 5 hour round of golf. At $40 it’s overpriced they need people on the course to get groups moving along

I would not recommend anybody to play in Staten Island. They charge $22 for a cot. It is the first week of February. That is a big rip off. Three of the holes, a goose poop all over it.

Needs work

Greens are in really bad shape
It’s almost impossible to putt on at least 4 greens
Hopefully it’s back in order soon enough

Buyer Beware

Some greens are unplayable. The bunkers are filled with rock from Pompeii. Your clubs get stolen by the group behind you. The tee boxes look like dug up tombs. There add random mounds of dirt the height of your waist in the fairway, amongst other unplayable spots. There’s also a few hornets nests here and there. There is no rangers on duty to enforce pace of play. The groundskeeper has been missing since 1982. All this for $82. I know what you’re thinking, you just need a place to play today, but trust me, it isn’t worth it.

Perfect weather
Used cart

It’s South Shore

Overall course is in good shape, but several greens on the back 9 were apparently vandalized but are improving. Pace of play was great, under 3 hours with cart. It’s a fun layout, lot of variety in the holes, for a public golf course at a discounted rate its great value, full rate with cart it’s overpriced.

Southshore wait until next season to play

Although it rained the night before the condition of the course bad. Just about every tee box was mud. A few greens are still recovering from vandalism. Used to be one of my favorite courses and I hope by next season they will have figured out how to get plush tee boxes again. They should not charge more than $40 with cart in the condition it is in.

Bob

Place stinks. It’s up for sale and you can tell. Telling us cart path only when 5 of the greens have longer grass than the fairway and every team box is a pig pen.

Shambles

Looking to spend alit of money on a goof course with crappy conditions for 5 hrs look no further The tee boxes were dirt with a few patches of grass, and the greens were aerated and covered in sand making it impossible to putt At the turn i waited 20 mins to get water and a snack. There was only one person working (inefficiently) causing huge back ups on the course. I couldnt wait a lifetime so went without. No cart girl and no water supplied on the course American Golf you ought to be ashamed if what you did to this facility

Awful

Ranger had an attitude about carts not on the cart path when nobody stated it was cart path only, course was run down compared to what it looked like a few weeks ago. Greens are usually pure but this round they were unkept and filled with divots. No mention that a few holes on the back 9 were being worked on and greens were unplayable prior to booking tee time. Ranger kicked us off the course on hole 18, didn’t allow us to finish the final hole of the day. They charge a premium price for a sub par course.

Great Event Host

Mike & his staff were tremendous during my recent memorial fundraiser. Anything we needed we had immediately. The pace was excellent and our players really enjoyed the course. We’ll do it all again next year!
