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.

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.

Harder than it looks

Do you want a challenge? Try this course. You first look and especially the first hole you say "This will be a cakewalk". Just wait. It is sneaky long and sneaky hard but very fair. No hidden obstacles. No trees in the middle of the fairway. Just a good old golf course. Did I mention the views? Stand on the tee box to #11 and tell me that is not a perfect picture. The water, the boats, the birds.
Enjoy your experience.

Great Short Course

Great short course - 6100 from the green tees. Holes are close together which is nice because it’s easy to find your ball if it’s not in the fairway. The par 5s don’t always require a driver and it’s great for any skill level.

First Time Playing

Very windy

First time playing middle bay and I was immediately impressed with the staff who come to the drop off area take you’re bags and carry you with a cart to the Proshop.
The course was very windy but I loved the challenge. Either going up or down 2 clubs for the wind.
It’s a fun challenging course with great views of the bay.

A good course with nice waterside holes

This is a better than average course. I reviewed once with 4 stars and now 3 which is about right (3-1/2 stars). It has good variety on length of holes, nice fairway movement and doglegs on a number of holes, and some really nice water holes. What holds it back is just ok conditions, flat land for the entire course, not a lot of contour to the greens, and a handful of unmemorable holes. But it is a nice step-up from your average muni.

Windy, and too early in the season

The day I went the winds were blowing at around 25/30mph, which makes Middle Bay very difficult. In addition, the course needs another month or so for the grass to grow out. The fairways were ok, but right off the fairway there was virtually no grass. The greens were in good shape, as were the bunkers. Pace of play was a little slow.
