Why not country club quality?

Dyker Beach GC has been up and down for the past 20 years that I have been playing there.
The golf course is very heavily played, which is of benefit, financially and detrimental because of the wear and tear.
My opinion reads, as follows: being the most played GC within the continental US, there must be enough revenue to maintain the track in Country Club fashion. It is far from the look or feel of an excellent golf course.
American Golf realizes that people will come even if the course could use major improvement. So why spend money making it better, when players from NYC will patronize because of location and convenience.
Too bad, because it really should be a showcase for American Golf.

Dyker Beach

Course in terrible condition. Greens as long as fairways. So many putts stopped well short of the hole even when hammered. No sand in many traps. Some tees so heavily sanded the golf tee would just sink. Won’t go back this season.

Tees and greens are unplayable

Most of the tees a just piles of sand, should be closed off. All of the greens were just unsuitable. The bunkers have not been maintained. This is the worst condition I've ever seen at DB.

Dan

I played with a friend and he played here a few years ago and it was in a lot better shape, tee boxes weren’t good either too sandy or beat up. Sand traps have not been maintained, fairways were so so. Greens appeared to have been punched 7 - 10 days ago, that isn’t a fault it’s the time of year. If course was kept up it could be a **** star too ****1/2. Sorry for the negativity but this is how I experienced it for the first time.

Disgraceful

This year i was fortunate enough to have played 20+ courses around the tri state area and this one was the worst by far. First my tee time was pushed back by 20 to 30 minutes because of a group outing. The course “professionals” allowed this group to completely destroy the pace of play. It took my group 4 hours to play 13 holes. In addition, the greens were sand traps. Every hole was a 3 putt. I will never go back to this course.

Awful.

Wish I could give negative stars.

The back nine was closed we had to play the font nine twice. The greens were aerated and loaded with sand to the point that it wasn't even worth trying to putt. The T-Boxes were a wreck, impossible to even find a flat spot. The sand bunkers look like they haven't been touched in months, overgrown with weeds and complete hardpan. Even the cart had a chunk of cushion missing from the seat.
TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY I WAS CHARGED FULL GREEN FEES. When I asked for a discount I was told it wasn't possible that's what everyone pays.
Even if your service can not at the very least let people know greens are being aerated before they make a decision to book, I do not see the purpose in using it any longer. I will call the course directly and at least make an informed decision.
If I could make a recommendation to you I would say to stay away from any course that is run by American Golf in NY. You guys need to do a better job of making people aware of course conditions.

I would really like a response.

Pretty pretty disappointing

Disappointing to say the least. Front 9 greens were being aerated so were closed - fair enough. The greens on the back 9 were in great condition, but bunkers and tee boxes were shocking. Some tee boxes had more sand on them than the bunkers! Cart paths are deteriorating with pot holes in them. Fairways and rough were standard for NYC park golf. Pro shop and starter workers were very friendly and helpful though!

Surprisingly, no grill room service, no ball cleaners on course, no rakes in bunkers which are infested with weeds?
This was a very nice course pre covid but now....?

Outside of Douglaston GC, this is the worst public course I can remember playing. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Sand traps need alot of attention. A little TLC could really make this course more desirable. Layout of the course is very good. Rough could use a cut and fairways need to fill in in spots. Overall I like the course and would return. Tks Bill
