I haven’t played at Douglaston in about 5 years or so due to my inactivity with golf. Wasn’t sure what to expect as I was playing my first round in a long time in early November. Temp was in the low 60s which made me think we might see a rush of people trying to get a round in. The course was well maintained and the greens were in great shape which I wasn’t expecting. The pace of play was pretty good as well. We got 18 holes in teeing off at 12:30p on the first day of DST just before 5p. The course was as I remembered and I mean that in a good way. An enjoyable day overall and I’ll try to play there one more time before winter sets in.
Amazing course conditions, great value, terribly slow pace of play
Long course to walk, lots of hills and spread out course layout. Very very slow pace of play
I had a good day at this course, considering the multiple blind tee shots, and approach.
Good, reliable, well-kept city course
Douglaston is a frequent visit for me, and I love the place. Definitely the best-kept out of the city courses I've played so far. On this day, there was a lot of temporary water, but that's largely thanks to recent massive storms. It was actively being worked on, and the conditions were still quite good overall. Layout is challenging with a handful of forced carries, blind shots, and side-sloped fairways in some areas. Fun course and a great option to have in the neighborhood.
It is always a fun to play this short 18h course.
Even though located in heavy populated areas
it offers hilly terrain, waters and some nice city views. The staffs are very friendly and cool.
The fairways and greens are kept in decent condition. Good to have this jewel in NYC.
Nice course but pace of play too slow
Course is fine, however there should be a marshal to patrol the pace of play, took almost 5.5 hours to play all 18 holes.
We had a great day at Douglaston. It’s a really nice course. After several days of rain the green were slow and the grass was a little high. There were a few backups at some of the holes but that’s to be expected.
Rainy misty outing, no one on the course except us few die hards. Good round!
Drainage system needs upgrading
After three days continuous rain, many parts of the course became muddy. I think they need updating the drainage system.
Too many uneducated etiquette playing,
they should learn how to play golf not interrupting other players with proper etiquette,
Normal round for a 18 holes play was 3 and half hours in this course, but recently I experienced 5 hours.
Therefore round after 3 pm always incomplete 2 - 3 holes due to the aforementioned people playing, who they held their play and delayed other players.
The course strongly requires “ranger” who able to accelerate people to play accordingly.
