Fantastic State Golf Course

This was a bonus travelling to Montauk to find a golf course that was not private and to such a high standard. We actually played 3 times. It is quite hard and long so I would... read more

This was a bonus travelling to Montauk to find a golf course that was not private and to such a high standard. We actually played 3 times. It is quite hard and long so I would recommend that you get a buggy, they all have GPS as well so that is a bonus if you are not familiar with the... More

We Love Montauk Down, Kevin Smith and his whole staff. Kate Tempesta has been running a fabulous program for kids - a must check out ! Course is links style, long , wind in your face and tons of trouble everyone. Bring extra balls! Pool and tennis courts are also there for non golfers. Club house is outdated and could... More

We went to a wedding reception for my cousin here. The food was outstanding and wait staff was great and attentive to all the guests needs. Beautiful banquet room overlooking the golf course.

public golf course ( a hidden gem ) nice pool and tennis, pro shop , bar restaurant. The "Downs" is a treat. I never take it for granted. For golfers, a difficult walk with quite a bit of OB. Real good greens, many elevated. NYS residents get a very good rate to play.

Really nice golf course and very reasonably priced, but the round took over 5 hours to play. The course is in pretty nice shape and very beautiful.

The course is nice to play. Not too easy yet not too difficult for an average player. You have to make reservations in advance to play. It's always crowded and if you are not a foursome, you will be forced to play with other players as they do not let anyone go out without four players. It gets slow at... More

The trail to get to the ceremony was... well, it was a TRAIL! We were advised NOT to wear heels for the ceremony, and we listened. Once we got to the site, it was breathtaking.

Well run well maintained state golf course. A challenging course for most. BUT, it is like two courses in one. If you tee off early, it is a nice and relatively straighforward course. Yes, there are some tough holes and it is not that forgiving if stray from the fairway on many holes. But, that same course in the afternoon... More
