9-hole "old school" gem
Old style golf course with no fairways and quirky hole layouts delights the experienced golfer as well as the beginner. Could be walked, but carts recommended. Blind shots on many holes, so scope things out before taking shots. Clubhouse has great views and is nice to have a bite (in season). Look for incredible rates ($10 with cart).
Great small country course
Great small country course where I learned to play golf. Enjoy the year round winter rules as it makes course enjoyable for a beginner while developing skills. It always has a unique challenge on each hole which helps when playing with varied players. It is very affordable while providing a challenging day on the course, even though 9 holes.
Best thing is greens are well cared for, staff is friendly and and after game beer is very reasonable.
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.

Perfect for Shelter Island
If you are looking for a typical high end country club experience, this course ain't for you. It's on Shelter Island, which doesn't have the water capacity to keep everything green. I play every year when I visit the island. Highlight of my trip. It's hilly, so take a cart. The fees are a steal. So if you're looking for a Mar-a-Lago, then go there. We won't miss you. The staff is super friendly. The whole operation has a kind of mom and pop, 1920s feel, which for me is a plus. Harkens back to simpler times. I'm thankful it's there, and may it remain so for future generations.

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.
Dusty fairways, rough hilly terrain with blind shots. Not coming back

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.
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.
