Dyker Beach Golf Course -- Great course for short hitters
Review by: Dougie the Dyker regular The bad old days are long gone. Dyker is in ok shape now... it's a real golf course with decently tended greens and tee boxes. Some hazards still aren't great -- with construction grade sand instead of fine white sand. The fairways aren't exactly lush, but you are always on grass (except Dyker beach golfers don't seem to ever replace their divots) which wasn't the case back in the 90s when whole fairways on the back 9 were barren hardpan. It's a really fun layout for the short hitter -- with only two holes (the hndcp 1 and 2 on the course) that are just unreachable in regulation for the guy with a 225 yard drive. Here's a course where you can break 100, not lose too many balls, and feel good about your game, while being challenged at the same time. Every hole is unique and interesting except #1, which is a short par 4 to a bland green but it's a good warm up hole (and there's no driving range of any kind is maybe my biggest complaint about Dyker's set-up.) It will be slow on a summer weekend 5 1/2 hour round would be normal. But all the NYC courses play slow on weekends. Play late in the day, or off-season on a weekday and you own the place... that's the way to go -- cheaper too with twilight rates, great bargain. And, it's a great course to walk. Not flat, but mildly hilly and the tees are very close to the exit greens. A truly pleasant walk. I gave three stars in comparison to courses around the country. By NYC standards it gets 4 stars.
