Architect

Course is in desperate need of a groundskeepeer and maintenance staff that care! This was a beautiful landscape that has fallen on hard times as can be seen by the tangled underbrush, fallen tree limbs, dirt patches throughout an overgrown rough and concrete bunkers/traps.
Greens need rolling and aprons around the greens are overgrown and almost unplayable. Twice my group approached holes that had the tee flags removed and discarded from the greens? OK, so ahead of us was an outing of young alcoholics but that's no excuse for irresponsible lack of rangers.

Disappointed

Course is not maintained at all. Tee boxes are hard and bare. Bunkers are like cement with more rocks than a prison yard. Greens are OK but very slow. Won’t play here again many other courses available for the same price and in superior shape.

disappointing

once again staff was more concerned with pairing two twosomes than keeping players assigned to their tee times. Thus, we were held 45 minutes passed tee times. Thus, players who paid extra for the earlier tee time, but, went out at the later tee time without a credit for the later tee time.

sand in rough shape

Bunkers are pretty brutal right now -- they're basically hard mud piles.

Rest of the course is pretty standard for Dyker.

Slow play on concrete conditions

Slow play and no on course ranger to assist. Tee boxes were impenetrable to tee and greens rumbled like the jungle they were. Course should offer refunds for conditions this horrible. Would recommend all golfers to stay away.

Not what it used to be

Other than pace of play which was excellent mainly I’m guessing because no players as course conditions have deteriorated to an very poor condition. Greens ok, but not cut, fairways and tee boxes are a misti[rye of dirt and something green more like crabgrass., I have played this course for well over 20 years and it may well be in the worst condition in all that time. My cart made it through the round though several times I wasn’t quite sure. Needless to say, until I hear differently I will not be back and wouldn’t recommend it to anybody, with hot weather coming, only going to get worse.

Safety

I had to pay a extra fee to avoid sharing a cart. With a stranger. The virus is still with us & we shouldn’t have to pay to share a cart

Not what it used to be

Dyker used to be the premier course in Brooklyn. Now it's just another public course. The fairways are hard as rock, with poor grass, there are downed trees all over, and the greens are in poor condition. Sad to see it fall off like this. Hopefully the staff picks Olyphant their game and gets the course back in shape again!

Definitely an experience

My first time playing NYC golf. While it is not the greatest course in the world, for the money it gets the job done. Course is not too difficult and fun to play. Day was completed by a local youth running onto the course to steal the flag.

Look if you live in the area and find a good deal to play a round it serves the purpose.

Greens almost back from aeration, Bunkers in rough shape

I played Dyker Beach last year and it was in pretty rough shape, so I wanted to give it another chance. The greens and tee boxes are recovering from aeration but should be in decent shape in a couple weeks. Bunkers were better than last year when they had tall weeds growing out of them, but they still have some vegetation in the "sand", which is more like dry dirt in most cases.

For reference, the course has been advised by the NYC parks department that golfers CAN share carts now. So in my case, I had a Hot Deal that included HALF of a cart ($18.50 value). I chose to pair up with someone else (we were both vaccinated), but was given the option by the pro shop to pay an additional $18.50 on top of the Hot Deal to ride in a FULL cart alone ($37 value). There are signs explaining this, that I neglected to read, but the staff did a great job explaining it to me which I really appreciated!
