The course was very nice however the day was cold damp and windy which made playing somewhat difficult, however certainly no the fault of this nice course. The problem is the process they use for golfers and the unconscionable experience we had with the staff. We were a group of 12 players that had reservations. Two others and myself checked... More

I'm writing this review for my husband who played at Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course on 7/19/2016. He regularly plays the 5 courses at Bethpage State Park. On a positive note, Montauk, because it's a state park, uses the same reservation system as Bethpage. Getting a reservation was not difficult. Food options not very good, with only pre-made sandwiches... More

This Robert Trent Jones designed course is a true challenge. The course gets narrower as you close in on the holes and the greens will test your accuracy, so be prepared for a few lost balls. As public courses go, this one is a beauty. It easily could be the site of a professional tour event. There is plenty of... More

Not as nice or impressive as Bethpage black, but plenty of interesting holes and overall nice layout. Our weather was a bit sketchy, and the greens were recently punched and sanded, but could see how folk like this course. Considering how few public courses there r on east Long Island, definitely worth making a visit to Montauk downs.

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

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 nearer NYC were this good

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!
