The course was very nice however the day was cold damp and windy which made playing somewhat difficult, however certainly no the fault of this nice course. The problem is the process they use for golfers and the unconscionable experience we had with the staff....More

I'm writing this review for my husband who played at Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course on 7/19/2016. He regularly plays the 5 courses at Bethpage State Park. On a positive note, Montauk, because it's a state park, uses the same reservation system as Bethpage....More

A well laid out course with a variety of different doglegs, long and short holes. Greens in good shape. Pace of play was about 4 1/2 hours. Well worth the price. Wish courses nearer NYC were this good

Golf has been losing player for years now, its cost prohibitive, a round of 18 takes to long, its inherently hard to play and to punitive for missed/bad shots…and then there’s Montauk Downs State Park. From the antiquated state run reservation system to the “No...More

Montauk is a beautiful course and is great value for the money, in or out of state. I used a rental set, and that too was quite good: a new set of Mizunos. Fairways were well kept, roughs were not nearly as penal as they...More

6400 yards from the whites, just as tough from the Reds for ladies. Many 400 yd par 4s need to be played at 5s . Drive, lay up , on in 3 and putt for par. Make your pars on 3s and 5s. Beautiful course...More
