Great course, kept in great shape and has some very tough holes. One downside is that the people working at the front desk are very unfriendly, but that is made up for by the friendly people in the pro shop and out by the carts

a MUST play even though it is almost impossible to get a tee time from June to Sept. Don't expect to bring it to it's knees and don't be embarrassed about playing the white tees the first time ... simply the BEST !!! BTW, hats off the Kevin Smith (the Pro and also the new Greenskeeper, don't know his name, that they brought over from Bethpage for all the efforts in making this GREAT track event BETTER with the support of the FOMD & NYS !!!

The bunker and green renovations Rees Jones has performed over the past 3 years has upgraded this course to a difficulty level better than Bethpage Red but still a competitive runnerup to Bethpage Black. The par-3 12th hole is one of the best and toughest par 3's in the state, bar none. The new cluster of fairway bunkers on the 18th make it a professional level closing par-4 of well over 400 yards.

All Things Considered, the Best Public Course in New York

Bethpage Black is a notch above in quality, but it is impossible to get on there and 6 hour rounds are common. Montauk is fantastic - difficult, scenic, fair, well-designed and in pretty great shape. You can get on and the price is a great bargain. It's simply the best.
