Good muny course. ..greens trampled from bring stampeded. Closer to the hole the more beaten.

A convenient, decent NYC muni course.

Played Dyker Beach on a late January, 40 degree Sunday. The weather was a bit warmer than average, but still cool enough to keep most golfers at home. As such, we played Dyker Beach in just 3 1/2 hours! That is a rarety - summer rounds here can take up to 6 hours.

Dyker Beach is a fairly straightforward, decent course. Best stretch of holes in my opinion are holes 4 through 8. Hole 4 is a downhill par 3 followed by #5, a dogleg par 4, #6, a slight dogleg par 5, then #7, a challenging uphill par 4 with a nice view of the Verrazano Bridge, then #8, a dipsy do par 3. There a few 400+ yard par 4 challenges (4 of them in all from the white tees - there is even a 400 yard par 4 from the ladies tees - a rarity), but otherwise the course is fairly straightforward and not very difficult.

Check out for deals. Full price for this course with a cart is a rip - it is about $76, even in the winter, but you can find some decent discounts on Golfzing. We paid $43 for 18 holes plus cart. The course is fairly flat and compact and therefore easy to walk if you desire.

One nice feature of Dyker Beach is its location in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It is only a three long block walk from the R Train, so city folk without a car can play this course without hitting up Zip Car.

In summary, decent NYC muni course assessable by public transport, look for deals on

This course was pretty good, it was clean well kept, lots to drink, the people were friendly and funny, the course was very hard considering my handicap, what course isn't. The experience was good, the only thing that I didn't like was that they were an hour delayed (not their fault), and we had to use a trailer insted of using the pro shop.
Will play there again.

Not as badly maintained as people say. I enjoy playing there and always will. Besides, this is where Tiger woods's father caught the golf bug.

Walk it after 5pm in the summer and it's a great value... Plays very slow though during the day, so make sure you have the time to finish the 18. Should be nice when they finally finish the clubhouse and there's a place to eat/drink beyond the trailer. It's too close to my house not to play it though, to be honest.

@$!*%r is heavily used course so it shows considerable wear. That said, the course is not bad and reasonably well maintained. Waits are long though, they do little to move things along once you're on and the staff isn't what one would call customer oriented. Clubhouse was getting a makeover this past year. Maybe that makeover will have broader effect.

Bring a hammer to make sure your tee stays in the ground, this course is always busy and the ground can get compacted. Great views of the Verazzano Bridge. A sometimes rowdy crowd gets going on the patio - lots of beer gets poured after a round.

No concern for their customers

I had a late cancellation and was charged the full amount for the unfulfilled reservation. Fine, that's a standard policy in most places. Then the general manager sent out a fourth golfer with my group for the back nine, and didn't refund half of the fee I paid for the extra "phantom" golfer. So he ended up making double the income for the back nine, but because he said he "could have sent the guy off the front", he refused to refund me half the fee, and essentially charged us as a fivesome for the back nine. I fail to see how this is fair. When I asked him why he needed to charge us double for the back nine, he acted like it was a personal attack that I couldn't fill the 4th spot on my reservation and treated me like I broke a law. I paid him his money, he should have followed policy and charged us only once for the back nine.

I also agree with the poster below who took issue with the pace of play. The people here obviously have no idea how to manage a course. There is always at least a 30 minute wait to get off the first tee, and as stated there's nobody to tell slower golfers to pick up the pace. They're more interested in getting as many groups on the course as they can than they are about the experience their customers have.

Greatly Improved in Past Couple of Years

A fun to play course in the city limits of NYC. I've been told that it handles more rounds per year than any course in the Northeast, but very rarely looks beat up. It's obvious that the operators have recently invested some dough into this course. Toughest hole is a 160-175 yard par three where you have to hit it high and don't miss the green or prepare for a 5 (or higher). A huge valley seperates the tee and green. Fair and fun otherwise for the low handicapper and the weekend warrior. Can't wait for the weather to warm up.

Nice local muni but it could stand some improvements. Currently undergoing major renovations to the club house, otherwise it is in fine condition.

This has to be the worst golf course in the city. There is way to many people playing at one time. The pace of play was horrible. It took 4 1/2 hours to play nine holes. They don't have a marshall so nobody can speed up play. We were rushed through each hole only to wait 20 minutes to tee off at the next hole. The people who cannot shot also have no golf etiquette. I was hit into 3 times and parties of 5 or 6 wouldn't let you play through. At 8 when I finished the first nine holes I asked for credit to play the other nine holes at a later date and was denied. It is definately not worth the money or the time you waste watching bad golfers rip apart an otherwise nice course. I am a lower handicap golfer and I shot the worst round of golf I have in two years. DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE UNLESS YOU WAN'T TO BE FRUSTRATED ALL DAY!!!!!!

Average Course!

I played this course on July1 2006 and the course was no more than average. The tee boxes were a disgrace, -the majority were not cut. The price was outrageously expensive. The greens had areas of uneven grass. The people in front of us were extremley slow and failed to allow us to play through. As a pertson visiting New York I found this course of very low standard to that of my own home course in Ireland. All in all I feel my overallstar rating is duely waranted.
