“One of the Gems of the NYS State Park System”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I have played a number of the golf courses in the NYS State Park System, and outside of Bethpage, this is better than any of them. They run a first class operation at a beautiful and challenging track. The ocean is not readily apparent (you can catch a glimpse from one tee box on a clear day) but it is close enough that the wind off the ocean plays a factor on almost every hole. It was built in 1968 by Robert Trent Jones Sr and his son, Rees, and is one of my favorite RTJ courses. The staff is friendly and efficient, and they keep the course in immaculate shape.
The Pro Shop is as good as any, offering a wide variety of clubs, balls accessories and apparel.
The Price on a holiday weekend was a reasonable $55 (NYS resident) Montauk downs also has a Pool, and Tennis Facilities however I did not use them

“Excellent Golf Course”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

My husband plays here every year and loves it. There is a pool and food area to the side of it. It is a pleasant place to play but does get crowded. Book early to avoid the crowds or being turned away.

“A gem of a course”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Challenging course in good shape, thanks to huge efforts by pro Kevin and greenskeeper Charlie. Trent Jones classic, but avoid the slow pay in August.

“championship quality course”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

this golf course is great because of the way it is laid out. this is a mature course with full grown trees and beautiful fairways. I appreciate these older golf tracks because they have a certain character and history that lacks in the newer tracks of today. each hole is unique and offers the player a different challenge that golfers of every caliber can appreciate. I have played this course many times and I never tire of it and the greens are immaculately maintained as is the rest of the course. Montauk Downs was originally built by Carl Fisher in the 20's for the guests of his luxury hotel and yacht club and when you walk down these fairways you can see how well thought out this course was. next time you visit Montauk and would like to play and walk down the same fairways that Jones,Hagen, Farrell, and Sarazen played then pay a visit to Montauk Downs,you wont be sorry.
