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.

Best public course on Long Island not named Black.

Still Long Islands best kept golf secret, despite airated greens they were quick and fair, pace of play was excellent and the price to play a gem like this is a steal.

Early review

Windy as heck, if you see 20mph winds its like 40 on the course which makes it very difficult to play. Greens are aerated, course needs some TLC but if you catch this course on a day that its not windy...best course on the south shore for sure.

Once the grass grows this course will be excellent

Like most other courses in the area, the grass is not quite growing yet, but once it does this place will be great. Greens were rolling very well. Place was busy.

Cart path only

I understand when a course has had too much rain but to make a course path only for 2 weeks in a row not worth it even for free

Tell us in the pro shop

This is one of my favorite courses in Nassau County so I’ll preface my review with that. It was extremely frustrating booking the time on golf now with a quart included and then getting to the course and not realizing that it was cartpath only. That’s number one, number two not having a notification that the greens or era fied is also extremely frustrating, especially because nobody aerates this early in the year. I’ll definitely be back but just frustrating on those two accords

Good overall course!

Fair and challenging course. Greens also in decent shape for this time of year and rolls fast! I think it is the 15th hole which has crazy amount of mini hills protecting the green, definitely a signature hole to remember. Quite a few dogleg hikes, which keeps things interesting. Overall fun course. Good walking course as well. Modern carts with GPS, but with Cart Path Only during this season, I would recommend walking if weather permits. Will definitely be back. Played 3 times this season here so far.

Happy Round

Played here for the first time. Layout was nice and conditions were very good considering it’s middle of December. Staff were very friendly as was the starter. We teed off 10 minutes earlier than our tee time and there was back up whatsoever. Finished in 4 hours walking on a Sunday afternoon with awesome weather.
I would like to play during the season.

Cruel but fair

I've played this course many times over the last few years. There is not much difficulty in terms of fairways and trouble spots like water if you hit reasonably straight. The difficulty here is in the short game. Chips have varied lies and depth. Greens are deceptive, and pin placements are very tough especially front nine. The views on 2, 3, 10, 11 are spectacular. Challenging but you don't feel beaten up.
