Spook Rock Golf Course

Since this is a municipal course, you get treated as such. The roughs and around greens and traps are rarely mowed. Hit the ball 6" off the fairway and you're in 4 to 6 inches of grass, Just miss the fairway bunker, still in 4 to 6 inches of grass.Hitting out of the bunker is easier than just missing it. Plan on spending time searching for your ball. The conditions off the fairways and greens are U.S. Open caliber. Of course there is no second cut on the fairways. That said, the fairways and green are in very good condition which is the only positive.

They claim that they are short staffed and that's why the roughs need serious mowing.

Plan on adding 4 to 6 strokes to your score unless you are 14 for 14 on fairway hit.

If you play from the whites, there are no flat tee boxes anywhere. Its a search to find a spot on the tee where your feet are not above or below the ball.

The course has not been renovated in over 30 years except for repairing a few of the cart paths

This is an expensive course for non-residents of the town and there are better (and cheaper) alternatives within a 10 minute drive

They would not play this course again.

The course is challenging and in good condition. The rough is VERY tough. Unfortunately, some of the players don't repair ball marks in greens, but this is a minor inconvenience. I would be happy to play there again.

I used to live in Rockland County and within 10 minutes of this course. I leaned to play golf at Spook Rock and was my home course which I played frequently for years. One of the best ranked town courses for years in the U.S.

Fun layout and even moving from the whites to the tips made it a different experience. Hitting over the water on 6....far enough to make the uphill dogleg on 9....the gong on 11....the par 3 13th and 18 is a great finishing hole.

Course was in great shape, greens mix of fast & slow slight rain throughout round. Played as threesome at 4 hours hour pace. Drive from Brooklyn only unbearable in New York City, arrived at course greeted by friendly & courteous staff. Fairways looked good from the woods, lol, played from the whites, challenging enough for our group, wished I was a better player, this is a course that I would play a lot.

hadn't played here in 4 years or so, but remembered all the holes....Basically a course that you can play well on if you can drive the ball and avoid the rough/traps. Greens were a little slow for my liking otherwise I would have given the course a better rating. Some greens are really large and some are not, so you have to pay attention. Good course for a better player IMO.

They would play this course again.
