Located almost in the center of Long Island, the aptly named Middle Island Country Club is one of the area's most popular public golf courses. The 27-hole layout is divided into three nines that are played in 18-hole combinations. The Spruce/Dogwood begins with a front nine that underwent a major renovation in 2008. An island green was added to the par-4 seventh and another major addition was new tee boxes to accommodate women, seniors, and championship play. Middle Island Country Club's Spruce nine boasts generous fairways and large greens where there is plenty of room to grip it and rip it. Take advantage of the scoring opportunities on this nine because the Dogwood nine gets much more challenging. The back nine is a formidable test with narrows fairways and greens with surprising breaks that will have you wondering how you "just missed" it.

Golf Outing

Played in a golf outing, the course was in good condition. After playing we had a luncheon and they did not have enough hamburgers, the server kept telling us that food was being prepared and the hamburgers would be served shortly. They never served us the hamburgers. How do you not have enough hamburgers? They also did not serve us coffee or tea.
Very disappointed ☹️. If you are thinking of having an outing at this golf course make sure that you are guaranteed enough food for you group.

Last Day of Summer

Perfect day to play today. 8 AM tee time Spruce to Dogwood. Spruce is my favorite nine of the 3 and course is in great shape. Golfers should do a better job of repairing ball marks but I see this everywhere. Could have a few more deals but at least tee times are available even the day before.

Greens

The greens had more sand than a bunker! Air raiding is one thing this was even worse. Should be a discount if the greens are like this

Sorry to be negative…..

The pace of play is horrible and no one is checking these people. If I tee off at 7 AM I should not leave the course at 11:30.

This place blows

Worst round I ever played this last week I’m my golfing career….there was more sand on the greens than the bunkers, they didn’t post that they air rated the day day before Labor Day none the less and still banged you for $90. They never accommodate you or go out of their way to Make the experience better. They had the crew out there at 5am on Labor Day continuing to air rate even the one and only practice green, this place just doesn’t get it. By far my least favorite corse on this island and I play them all…it’s easy to see why this is the only corse with tee times available every week. I’ve played here pretty often over my golfing career but I’m done, if there the only place with a time I’d rather not play them support these losers.

Poor course managment

4 1/2 hours to play a round is annoying and unacceptable. Foursome in front of us hitting multiple balls all day.

The greens are horrific

To charge someone $90 with greens like that is a crime. They were air rated and covered in sand. Not worth the money.

Decent course but price seems too high

Found out on first green that they aerated day before. Would have been nice to know before booking tee time at full price.

Cow pasture with decent greens

I played the Oak course today. I thought that new management would have put some money into course but no.
Seems to have gone backwards in regard to maintenance.
Too bad as course layout is good and greens where not in bad condition.
Maybe next season will be better.
