Great public course

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... read more

When we arrived at the pro shop to pay for our round, the young man behind the counter would not put down his cell phone video game to help us. We had to wait until he was done blowing up aliens. Then, resentfully, he took our money and grudgingly pointed out where we could find the pull carts. Golf course... More

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 Refund” unaccommodating check-in staff, and the overwhelmed, flustered, not friendly starter, no wonder the state... 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 are on Bethpage Black (or even red for that matter). Great pro shop - lots... 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 . Fully stocked pro shop. Serious golfers for a serious course. Greens took a beating... More

If you enjoy a challenging course that is always in great shape, this course is for yourself. Bargain greens fees. And the vistas on some of fhe holes are first rate. Cant wait to go back!

Weekday April morning, 7am, walked on. It was a little cool, but still... got to play alone, which I enjoy. Links layout gives you wide open spaces. Challenge comes from fairway lies, wind, and most of all, the green complexes which are bunkered like Sicily in WWII and provide consistently tricky putts. Only complaint is proximity of houses on the... More

Haven't done this in years, it was perfect. Walked the entire place, the light house, the rock pile and the beach.

Playing a twilight round of the back nine holes, beautiful greens, quiet course and the glimpse of a fox and family made for a terrific evening.
