Imagine my disbelief when I was told that it was my problem that it rained. Our foursome went to this golf course and was not told before hand that rain checks were not issued. Granted it was drizzling, I should have had the sense to ask but the "guy" behind the desk mentioned to us that the rain was going to let up. We only got to play four full holes when it started pouring. At that point, the greens were decorated with puddles. We went back to the clubhouse to see if we could get a raincheck but were flatly told "NO", and that we should have seen the sign that was hung up on the wall of the pro shop. That sign was blocked by a computer monitor and is placed counter high. There is not a chance in the world that anyone can see that sign unless that person was specifically looking for one. The staff can give half a hoot about there customers. Not to mention the conicending tone they use to speak to patrons. I felt like a second rate citizen there. Truely unbelievable!

The location of this course can't be beat. Highway access, close to NYC, ample parking, etc. However, this is NOT a real golf course. Its a glorified EXECUTIVE course that has nice elevation changes through out, GREAT old trees that protect and punish. My front lawn is nicer than the fairways, and the practice greens at most courses are nicer than the greens here. The "pro" shop is a joke, the system they run is a joke, the staff can't be bothered, there are NO marshalls to keep up the pace of play. The Tee boxes are rockhard and the yardage markers are NOT accurate- that is if you can even find them. To be fair, there are some REALLY fantastic views of the city and the surrounding area does seem nice/safe (which is a change from some other NYC munis). For practice, this place is nice as they don't monitor your play or pace. There is some water and a fair amount of sand. The bunkers are not pretty, but the sand is good and fair, not to mention their is plenty of it- maybe because the season is about to start. I won't ever come here to play or entertain, but I will come back to practice. The prices can't be beat.

Pros: Ample parking, Nice views, Good Bunkers, Price

Cons: Staff, Fairways, Greens

I've been playing at Douglaston Golf Course for years. Under the new management, the course had turned around for the better... a "180 degrees" better. New bunkers, GREEN GREEN fairways, and greatly kept greens makes Douglaston a MUST PLAY Golf course in NYC. Highly recommended~!
