Good value for your money

I paid $22 for 18 holes. Good value for my money
We had a slow foursome in front of us and it took three of us more than 4 hours to do just 16 holes. Then it got dark.
The weather was fat from perfect and the place was pretty empty but the pace was slow

This is a fun, friendly, challenging course. somewhat short course, but don't let that fooled you with the narrow tree line fairways. The course conditions there are on a constant upgrade for the better. Thank you for the improvement every year.

Course condition and cost

Fall leaves all over the fairways and tees. If maintenance unavailable then at least lower the price for poor course conditions which results in longer pace of play.

The Usual

It's NYC public course, it gets beaten up by the traffic. I play FP quite often as it's easy to get to and find that it's better to play a round there than going to the driving range to hit 200 balls with no purpose.
FP is great practice course.
Most tee boxes are straight up dirt, don't play FP if you're afraid to scuff up your new clubs. But that said, fairways are in decent shape and greens too. Pace of play is always bad, lots of beginners there who don't know their way around a golf course.

Beautiful course, greens rolling well, sand was great for a mini, tee boxes need a lot of work.

Nice Layout

Fun layout. Course management is important ie: when not to hit driver. Tight fairways but nice variety. Score-able. Lots of trees.
Tee boxes need a serious facelift.
Rough needs to be shorter especially this time of year with leaves falling. Often difficult to find the ball after a decent shot.
Pace of play was great (Monday, 11:30am).

First Time Playing

Great pace, overall great shape, tee boxes need work.

Never played here before. Besides about 5 or 6 tee boxes that were completely dirt, the course was in great shape. If they could fix those tee boxes I would give it 5 stars.

Great course, great shape

What a day, and had a great time. The front 9 are very challenging; in my opinion (I am a 24 handicap, lol) the back 9 presents a better experience for a golfer like myself. BUT overall, just a fantastic round.

Tight course

The front nine gets tight, then the back opens up. Some tee boxes need attention.
