Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
First time I’ve played here this year. I played here last year right after golf courses reopened from the pandemic. It wasn’t in great shape then. It hasn’t improved a whole lot since. Though things have improved, this course needs a lot of work. There are better options in Jersey or Brooklyn.
Horrible tee boxes
For the amount of money spent to play here, this course should be in better conditions. Tee boxes are horrible! Mainly sand. Cart paths are in desperate need of repair.
Greens recently aerated but are still very firm as it appears they neither water nor cut them. In general , tee boxes are poor, fairways ok, not one. Cart path on the course is in good shape. Course is a good layout, just looks tired, need some tlc.
I reserved to play with cart included. When I arrived I was told that I would have to walk and 3 holes were unplayable. I totally understand with the storm that we had a couple of days before, but there was no notice letting me know. I paid 70.00 dollars for the round and GolfNow would not allow me to receive a refund.
Good Muni but pricey!
Ball doesn't roll out so course plays longer. The trees and atmosphere is really pretty nice for a city course. Walkers and joggers are on the outskirts of some holes enjoying the nature. The fixable drawback is the carts and cart paths. The EZGO golf carts are the biggest pieces of sh I've ever rode in before. The cart paths are littered with holes! Typical New Yorkers some very nice but others are a pain.
Worthy Staten Island Muni
Played on a Mon mid-morning so getting in around 4 hours should be expected but hey it's still great time.
Walked 18 - asked to rent a push cart since I am not local and the pro shop guy had to ask his manager and they said they were not able to rent them - no explanation - maybe COVID-19 related - just thought it was strange when I walked right past 6 push carts. Anyway got paired with some locals and they were a great group of guys, it's nice to have some local knowledge for some of the blind tee shots but not a big deal. Plenty of hills, wide fairways, and elevated greens. Course condition not bad, some tee boxes pretty barren but fairways and greens for the most part no major issues. The rough was thick but not too deep. Layout is fairly straight forward but enough variety and challenge to keep you on your toes. Front 9 plays long at par 37 and then back nine gives you a break with par 35 and not as tough. From the locals I played with this is the best Staten Island muni, maybe save for Silver Lake. I would play it again when in Staten Island, would not got out of my way to play. Some great pizza places near by!
Chris is a terrible manager. He is rude, inconsiderate and disrespectful … I came in with a reservation and expressed to me the time was double booked without even looking at my confirmation receipt. He said I have to take it up with GolfNow and couldn’t offer me any assistance or resolution …. He made guests feel unwelcome and don’t recommend anyone dealing with him. I traveled from Long Island to play in Staten Island planning my entire day around playing here and heading into NJ for another appointment. Chris fails to realize when people make a reservation for golf they’ve devoted 5+ hours of their day to be somewhere and then ruined the entire day. Time to look for a true leader !
Best I have ever seen it
Been playing here for the last 25 years. This is the best I have ever seen this place. The sand (dirt) traps are still terrible and some of the tee boxes are beaten up but fairways and greens are immaculate. Wouldn’t dare pay $70 on a weekend to be here but highly recommend any hot deal. Couple holes have a ground hornet problem that needs to be taken care of.
