Had the good fortune of playing this pictureque scenic coarse on Long Island sound. The coarse is an executive 18 hole par 67 layout with relatively short hole and tight fairways. The #2 hole was my favorite hole with the tee shot facing Long Island sound. This would be a good test of golf in the fall with the winds.
What do you do with a bunch of old, fat white guys to keep them out of trouble? Send them golfing of course...
The GC Golf course is a public course which is not all that intimidating but it does sit on the water, which makes it a nice day out in the summer.
I really don't play golf all that much, but I do take advantage of their paddleball courts and the newly renovated restaurant on the premises.
Not a whole lot to say- the greens are green the flags are flapping and the carts generally get you back to the clubhouse.
The paddleball courts are in dire need of a makeover and the restaurant is good.
Plenty of parking. Get out and whack a few balls.
Course is in excellent condition. A few tough holes but for the most part a very straight forward course. Some short par 4's that can be reached off the tee, but beware because if you miss the green you may be in trouble!
Gold Coast Gem
Very scenic overlooking LI Sound. Short but a challenge to the average golfer because of narrow fairways. New driving range offers double the stations, a renovated restaurant provides enjoyable dinning and the new Tiki Bar pleasurable 19th hole activites.
