This is truly a diamond in the rough (pardon the pun). While there are 2 other 18-hole courses on Wellesley Island, any golfer would be remiss if he/she did not set aside some time to play 9 or 18 at Wellesley Island State Park's golf course. While it may not be Bethpage, it is truly one of New York State's hidden treasures. The maintenance on this course is 2nd to none; the course is routinely in pristine shape year after year. The scenery on most holes is what you would expect on any course, but the views from the tees on #'s 4 and 5 are simply awe-inspiring. You'll find few amenities in the clubhouse (this is NYS-owned, after all), but the staff exudes the kind of friendly, down-to-earth, homegrown charm that will make you forget about the lack of provisions provided by courses charging 3x as much $$. The course is playable by both beginners and seasoned veterans of the game, and will force you to pull every club in your bag. The "signature" hole would have to be #3, where a good drive will do nothing to save you from having to scale the 40' rock cliff upon which the green is balanced. #1 is the only par 5, while 4 & 5 are the only two par 3's.

Bang for the buck, visual stimulation, near-perfect course condition, and a visit back to when golf was actually a fun way to kill some time all make this course well worth the visit and I guarantee you will play it again......and you can quote me on that.

Excellent course

The scenery is beautiful, the course is well-maintained and challenging, the staff is friendly and helpful. Especailly challenging are number 3 which goes up a steep hill and number 4 which is a vary narrow fairway where you are in real trouble if your shot varies either left or right. The reward is number 5 which tees off from the top of a cliff to the green in a valley below. A well-shot drive from this tee is a real thrill.
