Great Course

This is a beautiful golf course with a great layout. The greens were aerated about 3 weeks ago. They hadn’t fully healed yet, but they rolled fine. I didn’t want to give a lower condition rating because of standard maintenance.

Great staff. Friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this course.

Recent aerification of greens hadn't healed. So greens were bumpy and slow

Greens were aerified, & still not totally healed back. Fairways rough in patches. Bunkers almost unplayable, likely due to recent heavy rains.

Super par 3 ending 15 and 17

Course was played after a lot of rain so drainage was great but all areas had not been mown.

Layout is great and all par 3 challenging and seeing a gator always deserves mentioned

Great Round

This was the first time I’ve played Oyster Bay, but it won’t be the last. Exceptional golf course, friendly staff, and I was told when I arrived, that I would receive a complementary meal with 2 free drinks after the round. Oyster Bay does it right.

This course used to be terrific, but they are trying to get by on past glory. The course is not in good shape, tee boxes are poor, sand traps had drainage issues and the ones that still had full sand looked like an army walked through them . Does anyone take anymore ? Greens were recently aerated. The fairways were not in good shape. The deal including lunch is a nice touch . This is a $35-$40 dollar course now and that is a sad thing . This is a Legends property and it looks like they forgot about it . The big positive is the staff there. Top notch.

Very enjoyable day

A couple of qualifications here. I do believe we were first off - we played in under four hours and did not get jammed up at the turn (critical success factor!!) The greens had been punched - however I knew this well in advance and factored that in to my assessment of conditions. Feels like they're going to come back in really nice shape as I didn't notice any "dead" areas. Staff was very nice all around - the clubhouse can best be described as "spartan" but I'm there for the golf, not a mall experience. I play a lot in the area and there is plenty of competition for my dollars - but I can definitely say I'll be back. Also I did get to see several gators (bonus for me!!!) Final note - I wouldn't rate Oyster Bay in the same frame as a Caledonia, TPC MB, or True Blue - but the rate is substantially lower and again, conditions are nice (not pristine).

Great Course

One of my all time favorites. Live up north and haven't played here for some 15 years. Was not disappointed.
