Powelton Club, The -- Enjoyable course and a fair test
Review by: Simon Fothergill The day we played was very wet, yet the course drained exceptionally well. The course isn't too long though undulations throughout the course and being very well kept ensured a challenging test. The layout is excellent with a good distribution of par 3's and 5's. There are a few streams that come into play and the bunkers are well placed to punish poor shots, though the couple of lakes sadly pose no threat. Well worth a trip!

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.
