  • Very challenging is the understatement. Beautiful golf course. Always fun to play. More enjoyable when you play well. Not always the case, though.  more »
  • Pls be in top golfing shape before you tee off on Black. You need to hit straight and long. It was a great outing.  more »
  • WOW, What an incredible golf course. The Black course deserves every accolade it gets. This is a very difficult golf course but very fair. Be aware, it is a walking only and there are many elevation c...  more »
  • Have golfed here many times. Tough course! Once you play the Black course you will understand why the U.S. Open is here. Not for those with heart conditions.
  • I've played here twice, the last time several years ago. It is the most well designed course I've ever played. The amount of shots and the skill level required is excellent; I would think every single-digit handicapper would thoroughly enjoy the test. Nearly every hole is unique in terms of appearance (except for maybe holes 10-12). And I love the atmosphere of New York municipal golf; the clubhouse is charming and the people are, haha, interesting. P.S. - Although I think this experience nearly perfect, I will offer up a few criticisms for the sake of objectivity. Yes, play is typically slow because it's walking only (which I love) and people who shouldn't play it do. The reservation system is a little archaic but I find it kind of adds to the experience. And the greens, while very well conditioned, are fairly flat; but trust me, everything you're confronted with before the greens is plenty challenging enough.
  • Love golfing the whole course but sometimes just golf the back nine and shoot to the clubhouse to visit with friends and fellow colleagues.
  • Nice course. A challenge mostly due to length. Otherwise very fair. You will have to get up and down alot and if you can do it will do well. We walked with caddie. It was not a real tough walk IMO, but I walk when I play most of the time. If you do too, shouldn't be a big deal ( and it was about 90 with high humidity the day we played...but breeze days end, wind). So don't be scared...go play it and check off the bucket list!☺
  • Top caliber course. Perfectly maintained. Lengthy, but fair
