Marine Park’s conditions and course grooming have improved dramatically over the past few years. It is by far my favorite NYC municipal course and the linksy design is never sore on the eyes.

The pace of play, however, is absolutely horrid (as is the case at most public course said in NYC). Most weekend rounds take five hours minimum, with five and a half being the typical. A round of golf shouldn’t be a seven hour (or more) ordeal. Get here first thing in the morning (and pay the overpriced green fees) if you want to get out of there in four hours or less.

Have lived in NYC for 4 years, but this is my first experience at Marine Park. I was impressed with practice facilities, although was disappointed to find that you cannot use woods on the range.

I read multiple course reviews discussing pace of play, unfortunately they held true. I had a morning tee time - finally able to tee off about 20-mins past tee time. Needed to wait on every hole at the tee, as well as for approach shots. There were times where there were up to 3 groups on the tee. Round took over 5.5 hours.

The course was in great shape. Did enjoy the course layout overall.

Was not impressed with the pro shop or pro shop staff. Staff was not very welcoming when I got to course, nor were they welcoming in the afternoon after the round when browsing and listening to them tend to other customers.

Overall, this is a course I will likely return to. It has good practice facilities and a good layout. Will just need to be prepared for long, slow moving round.

As always, the course looks amazing. Greens are running nice and quick. Amazing job greens crew.

Again as always, the pace of play is garbage, and the staff does nothing about it. Get off your large butts and tell these hacks who limp around the course guzzling beers to pick up their pace.

If I was the owner of this course I’d completely re-staff the proshop.

Theyve done some renovation work on it the past few years that has made it better. It's still the best affordable public course within driving distance for most people that live in Brooklyn or manhattan.

People tell me how great the greens are, I have never been lucky enough to see them. Lots of patchy area all over the course too. I only play here for a friend's outing, no need to drive here from Nassau, much better options on the Island.

Huge wind gusts the entire front 9- made it impossible to play with yardages drastically affected and balls blown side to side like plastic bags in the wind. Back 9 was better wind-wise. Greens and fairways were just aerated on April 1st and 2nd too. Would recommend avoiding here for a while until the conditions are better. Not sure if the wind will ever really improve however. Driving range (irons only) a rare sight for NYC courses. Old raggedy turf mats however.
