Marine Park Golf Course

Brooklyn, NY Public


Long Island is the true cradle of golf. The area boasts Shinnecock, National Golf Links, Friar’s Head, Maidstone, Garden City, Bethpage … we could go on and on. Alas, almost all of these courses are private and Bethpage has turned into a tourist trap with rounds consistently taking six hours on the Black course. If you’re in the area looking for no frills, cheap golf, our advice is to head toward the city and opt for Marine Park. This Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design is extremely well conditioned and offers a number of views of the water and New York City skyline. But don’t let its beauty fool you. With fast greens, winds off the Jamaica Bay and measuring close to 7,000 from the tips, Marine Park is no push over. —Joel Beall
