Middle Island Country Club offers 27 holes of championship golf. It is one of Long Island's most popular public golf courses. It sits almost right at the center of the island, surrounded by the Lustengarten Nursery. The holes are divided into three nines and played as different 18-hole combinations. The Oak/Spruce Course begins with the shortest of the three nines, but there are some tricky doglegs that can make it play longer than what it says on the scorecard. Middle Island's Spruce nine was renovated in 2008, which added an island green on the par-4 seventh and more tee boxes to allow for women, seniors, and championship play. It's the most player friendly of the three nines, with wide fairways and generous greens that give you the freedom to grip it and rip it.

Nice track! Played Oak and Spruce. Fairways and greens were in pretty good shape. Good pace. Only real complaint was the sand traps were in bad shape. There really wasn’t sand in them, rather dirt or hard mud. In short, traps were brutal. Also, around and off the greens, better maintenance is needed as there were lots of holes and bare patches. Finally, minor point, no drink/food cart came till 14th hole. Thanks.

Clubhouse is non-existent, Pro shop is pretty much non existent as well. No beverage carts around the golf course. Not sure if they have a restaurant/snack bar at the course. They did sell some instant breakfast sandwiches in the proshop.

The course was a disappointment as well. Bunkers have a little to no sand in them. Greens were rolling true but they were very very slow. Greens felt "spongy" if that makes any sense.

The layout of the course is actually nice. Challenging doglegs and some par 4's are long if you play from the tips. Water hazards on some holes. This course would be a gem if they do some maintenance on it.

This place closes at 6pm EVEN WHEN THE SUN SETS AT 7:15. If your like me and want to squeeze in 18 after work or late in the day, you expect to play until dark. Not at Middle Island. 6pm is time for them to go home and count their $. Unreal. Thank God there are 144 golf courses on Long Island that DON'T have bank hours. Adios
