    Expect a round to take way longer than it should... On a decent day in April, it took around 6 hours for a full 18 due to consistent congestion on the course.

    They won't let you golf with just two so bring your own foursome if you don't want to golf with strangers! Although the patrons were very nice.

    Course is nice. I recommend it if you enjoy a dozen or so crabby monitors stopping by every hole to stare at your t-shots, fairway shots and putts...

    Oldest public golf course the US.

    Don't expect to be done in under 5 hours if it's nice out- everyone and their grandma is here, with tee times way overbooked.

    Yes people there is a golf course in the Bronx

    Stay right on the second hole. Going left adds too much yardage.

    Be hydrated since there is no drinking water. But, not too hydrated since there are no bathrooms.

    Get a cart, course is divided into 3 sections with long walks in between.

    Don't miss out on a chance to take a lesson with course pro Paul Sliva.Beginner or pro(he coaches a few)he'll help your game.

    You don't need driver on first hole. Go for control, it's a short hole to start/warm up with.

    Best public course in five boroughs.

    the 18th is pretty cool with I-87 in the background, then, as you approach the green, you realize how many douchebag literbugs there are. Read more
