Spook Rock Golf Course

  97 Reviews

Arrived for my 2:42 tee time and was sent out without any mention of the TWO tournaments happening at the course that day. Also, no mention of the absurd overbooking they had done. An hour in and we had completed three holes total. After three hours I gave up after the front nine was completed. A complete and utter waste of a Saturday afternoon.

When I tried to address the issue with the millennial at the check in desk I was told I should have expected a slow pace and that I was wrong to assume I'd be able to play an entire round in five hours.

No acknowledgment that they were wrong to book people and not warn them about the potential slow play. They had my money, they didn't care. Save yours. This place is run terribly. Which is too bad because for a county course it's actually in decent shape overall.

He would not play this course again.

Heard many positive things about Spook Rock and was glad I got the chance to play it. Also abouts it's slow play but playing on a Tuesday it wasn't a factor. It's a solid layout, different types of tee shots are needed on different types of holes to score. Working the ball both ways is necessary to get yourself in good position on approaches. Various holes are picturesque and course conditions for the most part great. Ruff was a little high so missing fairways was a bit more penal. Tee boxes were in great shape with little to no broken tees laying around, fairways were lush, and the undulating greens were great with little to no ball marks on them. Definitely one of the best public tracks I have played in proximity to NYC. I actually used all 14 clubs in my bag so hole variations were great. Food at the halfway house was tasty and staff was super friendly. Just a great change of scenery from NYC courses.

Left after 10 holes. Waiting 10 minutes on every shot. Slow play caused by group in front walking from cart parked on path to ball then hitting shot 10 feet and dropping another ball.
