Indian Head Golf Course -- Father's Day 2004 round
Review by: A Stobie This course is usually easy to get onto. Not a real long course, fairways are generally wide and forgiving, yet there are nuances that make it a challenge for the average golfer. Many greens are undulating; you don't always get an easy, flat role. Greens this day tended to be hard and fast. The last few holes even have cross-sloping fairways, so you have to account for where you're aiming, or how you play into the slope to hold the fairway. Fairways and greens are in good shape, but even on this clear, dry day, there are spots of standing water or wetness in the rough. With decent course management, you can shoot well here. As for scenic or aethestic pleasure, this is not the most glamorous course you'll ever play - it's fairly plain surroundings. Price is right on at $11 for 9 holes on weekends.

Dyker Beach Golf Course -- Busy Course For A Reason
Review by: 9 handicap Accessible from the subway (R train to 86th st. 5-10 min walk). First time I went to play was at noon on a Monday. I couldn't go out until 3pm. The following Monday, I made a tee time (which they charge a few dollars for) and it took just under 6 hours for 18 holes with a cart. Apparently, it's "always busy", and it should be because it's a nice course. It's well taken care of. Some greens are nicer than others but they're all large, fairly quick and have nice breaks. Bunkers come into play on every hole but #1. The course isn't too long. All four of the par 5's are under 500 yards from the back tees. Some of the doglegs setup some tempting tee shots but can lead to serious trouble if you don't nail it. All in all, very nice for a NYC course I can get to by the subway.... just expect a slow day.
