Print Email
Golfers on Long Island are lucky enough to live right around some world-renowned courses. While Bethpage Black - host to two U.S. Open Championships - is probably the most well-know course on the island, there are plenty more that will challenge even the most experienced golfer.
 
Of course, there are plenty of great courses for beginners on Long Island as well. However, if you’re looking to challenge yourself beyond just a Par-3 course, you will definitely have the opportunity to do so on Long Island.
 
Not only are the courses on Long Island challenging, but they are also some of the nicest, well-kept courses around. After all, Long Island does offer some great waterfront views.
 
Note that these are public courses - open to anyone who would like to give them a try. Of course, this means we did not include the world-famous Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, as it is a private course. If you include private courses, just think about how many more you can play.
