  • BP Black is a true test of golf with demanding tee shots, length, and good greens. No carts for walking only is also a big reason for the high rating. The course manager needs to figure out the slow play problem.
  • The best course in NY State, by far. If you are a NY resident, it is also the best bargain. I have played it 5 times now and i have enjoyed every round. The course is challenging, but not unfair. The rough is what makes it hard - its not hard to get it out, it just makes the approach unpredictable - if you hit the green from the rough you will probably run though and if you are short, you are likely in the sand. Im have some length off the tee (around 270 to 300) and i think only the 1st, 2nd, 9th and 18th are par 4's that i can hit an approach shot in with an 8 iron or less. My advise - buy a yardage book as you really need to know your lines off the tee, plot your way around (don't go for the par 5's in two as from my experience you are more likely to make 6 than a 4) and if in doubt, club up because the danger is in front of the green on most holes. Its a par 71 and I would say it plays more like a 75 or 76. Play early in the season when the rough is a little shorter. The only downsides is that some players don't repair ball marks/divots like they would at their own club and the practice facility is quite poor, but it is a public facility. The red and the blue courses are good too - the red especially which is like a mini black. The green is an average run of the mill track. Not played the yellow.
  • Good course. I've found the staff there nasty every time I've been there. You'll see what I mean...
  • Wow. Lived up to the hype and then some. Very impressive course. Greens are easy to putt....once you get on them. If you hit the rough you better keep a KEEN EYE on where it went in, otherwise you will have to concede the ball after 5 minutes of finding nothing. Blind tee shots and what not, but overall AMAZING course and a very unique experience. If I was a resident I would be here weekly.
  • Great venue for watching PGA golf. The whole family had loads of fun watching the PGA greats challenge Bethpage Black. We spent both Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the shade to the right of 18 and watched the players come in. Excellent spot and nice and cool!
