The Golf Club at Middle Bay is located on Long Island's south shore overlooking the barrier islands of Jones Beach, Point Lookout, and Lido Beach. Nearly every hole looks out across water. Though the golf course is just an hour outside of New York City, you'll feel as though you've been whisked off to an out-of-town resort. The layout has a challenging design that will test your accuracy with tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers. Wind will also be a factor on this golf course. The Golf Club at Middle Bay is a tough but fair layout that players of all skill levels will enjoy. In addition to the golf course, there is also a driving range available.

I’ll tell you a secret

The course isn’t that hard if the wind is calm.
Mostly short holes, but very tricky greens that are speedy and full of slopes. The staff is unpleasant with the exception of a couple of retired guys. Passive aggressive ranger and comical pro shop personnel. Too many geese and ducks, but those cut out wood dogs will surely keep them away…..
Very playable without the wind and in very good shape, well bunkered with quality sand. Very strange aprons with no fridges around the greens.
Weird vibe about the place.

Great track

Course plays extremely tough when the winds are up, but very fair otherwise. You need to be accurate off the tee to score . There is plenty of water and sand traps on this course. Greens are fast but true. If you see a 6” break play it for 3”, that’s my tip of the day! Enjoy!

Great course layout. As a 12 handicap it is a challenge from the White tees.

On the day that I played there was a very strong wind blowing off the ocean. This made for a very difficult day of play. Without the wind the course is very enjoyable.

A Challenging golf course

Middle Bay is a difficult but enjoyable golf course. I teed off late in the afternoon and realized that getting in 18 holes was not going to happen. The conditions were outstanding, Unfortunately the location is on Reynolds Channel and between the geese and sea gulls there are problems that can't be avoided. Also in the afternoon walking is common so pace of play is an issue, I didn't play a full round because when I made the turn as a single in a cart I found a 4some on the tenth tee waiting to hit and another 4 some on 11 and 12. I was able to start my back on 13 and that worked out well. It was very windy but a fun late afternoon of golf.

Almost perfect

The course conditions especially fairways and greens are in excellent shape. THe one complaint I have is the sand traps are very inconsistent. A number of them, maybe 30%, are washed out and lacking sand making play from them almost impossible. .

I expect more from a course at this price point. And don't see this on courses in the same price range. If they don't fix the traps they should drop the cost.
