Don’t let this course become a housing development!

Great course. Really fun layout. Wish that it would stay public and not be turned into a housing development. Shame to lose a new great public option.

Great golf course but

In my opinion Greens need more attention. They are slow. I believe they need pressing and cutting. Divot are not been fixed in Fairways and greens. Players fault

Tam O’Shanter

A vey good experience but no amenities. This was a private club bought by a developer pending zoning for 2 acre homesites. Everything is shut down except golf course. Grass range and pitching, sand practice areas are a big plus for warm up or practice. Overall conditions are above average but at morning and midday rates of 90.00, I expected a notch better. Obviously the maintenance budget has been cut. Bare bones staff. No pro shop. - pay the starter. However there is an open halfway house at the turn. Layout is good but a a few shorter par 4’s but putting a premium with accuracy or hitting a fade drive. Miss the fairway badly and many holes have very tall grass beyond the rough. Traps had mostly shallow sand with some exceptions. Fairways are in good shape. Par 3’s are challenging. Greens are generally very good with exception of maybe 6 holes where sod was patched but in most instances this was well planted with no effect on putt roll. One instance where the seam was gapped and didn’t allow a smooth putt. I moved my ball a few feet over to avoid this. Greens are overall true, slightly above average speed. I expected faster. As usual, there were many unrepaired ballmarks. What’s up with some of you? Fix your ball marks!!! Typical of pay to play courses. Overall, I’ll be back there.

The course has a good track

We had first tee time and played in 4.5 hrs. There was never anyone behind us on any hole. When we were on our way in the starter complained that we were killing him and next time don't book early time. We took our time only because we never had anyone behind us. There are to many nice courses on LI where they appreciate our business. I will not return for $105.

On course restrooms spoil an excellent golf experience!

It’s understandable what we’ve all gone through this past year and that this fine course will be going thru some real estate development changes. But the on course restrooms were filthy, atrocious and unacceptable with garbage overflowing. It doesn’t take much to correct this and have golfers on this excellent course feel comfortable, and more importantly, safe. Most have already accepted there’s no clubhouse to enter or any other amenities.

Very nice course

Course was well maintained, but we lost many balls in the 2nd cut off the fairway. Grass was very high a d balls settled down and could not be found.
Also, the private course has gone public but the clubhouse, pro shop is now closed and not available to the public.

The course is over priced and poorly maintained

Me and three friends played the course on Sunday June 6th. We had a 9:00am tee time. We booked the time on Golf Now. They priced the course at $105.00. When we got there the starter who was in a booth outside the building, we were charged $118.61. He then said guys we need to get you out right away. It was 8:30, we didn't even have time to warm up or get even loosen up. On the course there was no water, no cart person to sell refreshments. The bathrooms look like they were cleaned in weeks and the course itself was not in the shape were were use to seeing at Tam O'Shanter. We played the course many times in the pass and we were shocked at the poor condition. The starter Dennis G. was not to friendly and when I questioned the price. He said there was tax and service charges, which was not mentioned on the Golf Now reservation. I would stay away from this course as it looks they are just looking to get your money with no regrads to player.

Very Mediocre

$115 a round for very mediocre conditions. Greens have not been rolled in ages and rest of course needs to be manicured. My gut tells me in a few weeks this will get worse, not better. They seem to have a shortage of carts and no amenities, and does not appear to be much of a maintenance crew here.

Country club turns public

I was a member for ten years. The conditions are almost similar to country club quality. My only complaint is that the greens are extremely slow.
