First time played. I am presently a 10.5 handicapper. Very enjoyable with respect to the course layout and challenge. Played from the Blue tees (6,598 yards/6,033 meters). Black tees are at 6,988 yards/6,389 meters). Red tees sport 5,541 yards/5,066 meters). There are four tee boxes. The greens ran true with some fair breaks that are reasonable reads. Fairways rolled more... More

If you are a golfer don't miss this course. In season it's difficult to get tee times but well worth the hassle. A great experience. Not the prettiest course but challenging holes that require shot making proficiency.

High handicapper here based on lack of play but do enjoy my business rounds and let's just say anyone who plays montauk downes will not be disappointed. It is scenic ( can Definetly see ocean in some spots) challenging ( ball runs like a Links course) and well kept. This is the same management as beg page black and well... More

I have played a number of the golf courses in the NYS State Park System, and outside of Bethpage, this is better than any of them. They run a first class operation at a beautiful and challenging track. The ocean is not readily apparent (you can catch a glimpse from one tee box on a clear day) but it is... More

My husband plays here every year and loves it. There is a pool and food area to the side of it. It is a pleasant place to play but does get crowded. Book early to avoid the crowds or being turned away.

Montauk Downs is one of the truest tests of golf on Long Island. While not overhwlemingly long the layout is creative and demanding. Well bunkered elevated greens await approach shots that avoid the perilous rough and thickly forested surroundings. Conditions are typically excellent, and the only negative is the admittedly slow play, especially on weekends. The course is tough for... More

Challenging course in good shape, thanks to huge efforts by pro Kevin and greenskeeper Charlie. Trent Jones classic, but avoid the slow pay in August.

this golf course is great because of the way it is laid out. this is a mature course with full grown trees and beautiful fairways. I appreciate these older golf tracks because they have a certain character and history that lacks in the newer tracks of today. each hole is unique and offers the player a different challenge that golfers...

I'd like to tell you what a horrible experience it is to play Montauk Downs so you won't go there and play. The fewer people that play there the easier it would be for me to get a good golf time. This place is GREAT. Difficult but great. Virtually all the greens have some elevation and greens are tough. However... More
