  • Excellent golf courses. Black is definitely the toughest physically and mentally. Be ready to walk up and down steep hills. Getting a caddy is well worth the $$!  more »
  • Hard to get tee time because of its popularity, difficulty & fame but an amazing course. Pricey but that's what happens when you are one of the top 10 golf courses in the U.S.  more »
  • Are you a golf junkie? This is the ultimate place. All of the courses are absolutely amazing. The Black course is obviously what Bethpage is known for but there are 4 other courses, Red, Blue, Green, ...  more »

  • 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...
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • This was the most enjoyable golf experience I have ever had! To be able to play on a pro course for about what I have paid to play on other (non tour) courses was simply amazing. I can't say enough good things about the course conditions and how friendly the staff was as well. This is definitely a bucket-list golf trip and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves the game and classic course design. I have to say though, one MUST be in decent shape to play the Black Course. It is walking only and there are at least 12-13 holes that are very "billy goat" worthy. I know some people have said you have to get a caddy, but with today's GPS apps, I don't think that is necessarily true. We used pull carts, played with a local gent and we had a fantastic day.
