About

Holes 18
Type Municipal
Par 72
Length 6114 yards
Slope 127
Rating 69.3

Smithtown Landing Golf Club offers both an 18-hole regulation course and a nine-hole executive course. The courses are open to the public on weekdays and to Smithtown residents on the weekends. The Regulation Course has a surprisingly tough layout with subtle but tricky contours throughout that cause some challenging lies. Mature trees line the fairways, making accuracy a necessity and there are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. At 6,114 yards from the back tees, it's a golf course that requires strategy over length, beginning with the first hole. This dogleg right par 4 will force you to carefully think about the placement off the tee. In addition to the two golf courses, Smithtown Landing also has two practice greens with surrounding short game areas and a driving range.

Great value

This course has come a long way. The condition of the course is fantastic, I would give it a 10 but I find the greens to be a bit hard and fast, but are much better then in the past. Pace of play holds this couse back from it full potential, 5 hour rounds are just too long.

Fun course but challenging

First time we played there… fun course but challenging. You had to know the course layout. Some holes were below hidden and you had to guess where to hit. Definitely would play there again.

overpriced

Overpriced course with many divots on greens. Also ranger was like a gestapo . Would not recommend. Better courses out east for the money that treat you better.

Pace of play

5 hours ! Group ahead was playing very very slow, finding each lost ball advising each other instead of moving on to their own. Complained to the ranger, who did nothing and said the course was backed up.

Aeration

Aeration notice has to be shown on the Golf Now website. If there was no aeration on the green, I would have given 5 stars on Course Condition.

It is what it is

Been playing this course for 20 years, but I think I’m done.
First off, let me say that I love this golf course. It tests every club in your bag, is in great shape, the people are super friendly, and it’s very convenient to my home.

However the pace of play is absurd, and it’s clearly obvious that management has chosen not to address this issue. I’ve tried late afternoon tee-times, Tuesdays, Thursdays Saturdays and Sundays….and it makes little difference. I recently played on a Thursday night at 5:30, and was 3 groups deep on the 6th tee box….absolutely ridiculous.

Like I said, it’s such a great track but this this past year might force me to look elsewhere.
