Hilly terrain, classic feel

1901 golf course has very hilly terrain and numerous blind shots. Unusual feature: you will not find a fairway on this course, only cut grass, old style. Not many bunkers to speak of. Greens were in perfect shape and playable. It's best to (1) take a cart, (2) scope out the hole before you play it, (3) beware that the ball will jump downhill on most greens, so lay-up. Clubhouse restaurant is a gem with spectacular views on sunny days. Course is rough around the edges, but worth playing and unique.

Greens were like putting on a thick carpet
Literally NO fairways- all rough/dirt grounded up crap

Shelter island is for beach activities

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve and are working diligently to improve the course. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Golf the way it was meant to be.

My favorite course.. It may not appeal to the hardcore golfer who demands perfection, but If you appreciate an unpretentious and challenging course set on a beautiful island that is more New England than Long Island, then this course is for you.

Greatest practice course ever

You’re forced to be accurate from hole one. This course is awesome for learning blind shots, uphills, narrow fairways. If you want to hone your game, this is a fun beautiful course to challenge yourself and enjoys some of the gorgeous landscapes of the island.

Play 9, eat at the restaurant

Some of the fairways were in rough shape, but the greens were nice. Staff was friendly and eating at the flying goat after made it a complete day. Just be careful, some holes are very close to the road/potential for hitting parked cars.

Challenging course

First time to play the course. Many challenging shots due to height differences and and not able to see the greens when hitting.
Staff friendliness atmosphere. Great restaurant.
