Strongly agree with RRDS's comment on the attitude part of those guys in pro shop. They have no intention to help customers.

Played Marine Park on a beautiful May Saturday right after running the Brooklyn Half Marathon. I read these reviews before I played and had low expectations. I also played this course three years ago and was not too impressed. We played Marine Park primarily because it was the closest golf course to the end of the half marathon and the fact that my wife wants to eventually play all of the City courses and this was one that was still outstanding on her list. I warned my wife to expect a mediocre course and some rude service.

Well none of that happened. Course management was pleasant and accommodating. There were plenty of rangers along the course who maintained a reasonable pace of play. Regarding the course, there are a couple of holes that they are re-sodding but they are apparently putting some money into this puppy.

The course itself is a links-style layout. It is quite long - about 6,900 yards from the tips and a robust 6,600 yards from the whites. For ladies, the course measures about 5,400 yards, a challenging distance for them. There is minimal water on the course - the only hole where water comes into play is hole number 9, a par 4 with water on the left hand side. The fairways are not very wide, but there are not many trees on the course, so if you miss a fairway, you usually still have a reasonable shot to recover.

The course is a standard layout of four par 3s, four par 5s, with the rest par 4s. There are some great views of the Verrazano Bridge and the Manhattan skyline, including the Freedom Tower under construction.

It is a City course, so it is expensive, but there are deals online. We paid $44 each for a round with cart. Full retail price is about $63 per round with cart.

So in summary, this is a much improved course. Give it a try if you have never played it and if you have played it in the past and were turned off, try it again.

This is hands down the worst / ugliest course I have ever played. I would still play here again if it were not for the staff at the pro shop. They have too much attitude, they have no manners and they lie through their teeth, basically doing whatever they want to do. It's a classic example of mere administrators exploiting/enjoying their "power" -- what they need to understand is that we PAY for the service and they are not doing us a huge favor by letting us play. They are genuinely bad human beings and I will never come back here again.

I have been a resident of Marine Park for years and having played Marine Park semi regularly I will say the course has improved greatly.Years ago it was downright awful.Hopefully whoever is awarded the contract to run this golf course will continue to improve this course which has the potential to be one of the city's best,The greens have always been some of the best in the city and now it seems the tee boxes and fairways are being maintained as well.Cart paths and the addition of a place for a bite to eat would be great.@$!*%r is in exceptional condition lets see if Marine Park can catch up finally.

What a load of rubbish. In Brooklyn after being tranferred by my company from Houston, Texas. I,m not a great golfer (off of 13) but this I found was the biggest rip off I have come across. All the rubbish I read beforehand pointing out that this was a future TPC blah blah blah. Okay the comments were from 2006 but all i can say is someone is skimming the dollars off because nothing is spent on the course. Greens were good but thats where it stopped. The rough was about the same height as the greens so I guess they have alot of hackers who dont want to lose any balls. Not a very challenging course unfortunately but its okay for the very high handicapper who wants to think hes done well by getting a par now and then. Very very dissapointed so will not play it again.

Very disappointed in this course. I live in NYC and have heard all about it so I wasn't expecting much. First and foremost, the Greens were AWESOME. some of the best i've seen in my limited experience. Besides that everything else was pretty bad. Service in clubhouse was terrible. General Manager lied to me about a special discount card that I have that is good at several NYC Muni's. Then he said they didn't have a driving range and never had one. When i walked out the clubhouse door, the first thing I saw was a driving range in disrepair that was not presently in use. The course has plenty of length and is a links style course, however, there was no penalizing rough at all and as much as it was great to not lose any balls, you really didn't have to worry about missing fairways at all because the rough was only an inch high. The worst part was that in the rough often times it was hard pan because there are no cart paths just lots of worn down dirt areas from carts driving on them. The course is set on the water but this is brooklyn so there are no particularly special waterfront views. This courses saving grace was that it was close to 7000 yards and on the back 9 there are a couple of doglegs but they have no real hazards so you can easily cut the corner on them. the bunkers were well placed and this course has so much potential, but the terrible service from the manager ( i didn't go into half the crap he tried to pull) and it's out of the way location and price make it one of the worst public courses in the cityh when it could easily be one of the best.

It's a shame this course is so badly neglected and it seems there's endless talk about renovations but it just doesn't happen. This could and should be a much nicer course. Greens are about average for a municipal course but it's downhill from there. As things stand, it's about as attractive as a driving range (a sad statement considering it runs along the water). Good news is you can walk on from late morning into the afternoon even on a weekend and there's no need for a cart unless it's deadly hot.

I didn't know I was on Flatbush Ave Brooklyn. The course was a nice course to play with a cool breeze blowing off of the bay. However it still seems to be under renovation and will be a really nice course when complete.

OK now, a future gem!

For those of you who haven't played Marine Park for the past few years because of the way it was (or in this case wasn't) maintained, you are in for a BIG surprise. People who care about the course, the speed of play (I recently finished a Saturday morning round in 4:15)and making Marine Park an NYC gem have taken over the management.
Weekend tee times are again in demand and, if the effort is maintained, this WILL be the best NYC course in 2-3 years.

Great potential for local favorite.

Undergoing major renovations with new Management Company. Already finished the clubhouse which has beautiful Pro Shop. The course is receiving constant long overdue maintenance and improvements and is a pleasure to play once again.
