This is the oldest municipal golf courses in America 1895 - the course is in excellent shape / greens still a challenge- recommend a golf cart for this course because it's a demanding walking course - the second hole is so hard that a par is great - can also easily be a snowman or worse !

The course is really nothing special, but the price is relatively decent and it's easy to get to without a car. I prefer Pelham Bay/Split Rock, but those are a bit tougher to get to via public transportation. I haven't been there since last summer, but I am eager to see the finished clubhouse and restaurant.

Course is in good condition and fun to play. Clubhouse is undergoing a renovation so facilities are non-existant. Price is a bit high given the lack of facilities.

Yes, the pro shop is going through some renovations and a snack bar at the clubhouse would be nice, but is was... More

It takes to long to play it, that's the down side. It's in relatively good shape,after Mr. Rudy Giulliani spent some good city money getting it up to par, the fairways and greens are good, even after it gets so beat up with so much play. The super long par 5, second hole comes up very fast upon you, and... More

The course is well maintained and the new clubhouse looks nice (from the outside). It takes way too long to play this course and good luck starting on time.
