The Golf Club at Middle Bay is located on Long Island's south shore overlooking the barrier islands of Jones Beach, Point Lookout, and Lido Beach. Nearly every hole looks out across water. Though the golf course is just an hour outside of New York City, you'll feel as though you've been whisked off to an out-of-town resort. The layout has a challenging design that will test your accuracy with tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers. Wind will also be a factor on this golf course. The Golf Club at Middle Bay is a tough but fair layout that players of all skill levels will enjoy. In addition to the golf course, there is also a driving range available.

the most memorable element of this course is definitely the wind, making it a little difficult to decide on clubs. The fairways and greens were all in good condition. A few slow folks making us wait on more than half of the holes.

Except for the pace of play on the front nine.. I enjoyed playing this course with the scenic views of the water, very relaxing .. the course layout and design blends well with the surrounding. Love the open space, not a lot of trees but errant shots can end up in the water and sandy beach. I thought the mounds guarding the 17th hole was exciting. The service is country club or resort type, friendly, helpful and professional. Complete practice facility .. driving range, chipping area and putting green. There is a snack bar and cart lady but no clubhouse for drinks or full meal. Less than an hour drive from manhattan, Can’t bear that for a scenic resort style public course!

I have played this course a few times, this is by far the worse conditions it has ever been in. Most fairways were full of water. They should have closed for the day, to pay $45 for this was horrible. Not too mention the driving range was also closed. Very disappointing day. I have a few photos but cannot upload the file size.

After the rain Friday night the course was very wet. Should have been closed.

The course is a walk from the parking lot.

Something could make that less of a inconvenience.

Other then my two negative comments.

I love the course.

I've played this course before and enjoyed it, unfortunately we had a great amount of rain in the past few days and there was a lot of standing water on the course which made for very wet and muddy conditions. We need a few sunny days for it to dry out. The weather is calling for more rain, unfortunately we can't do anything about the weather.

3:40 tee time and it takes 5 hrs 15 min to play 18 holes. Starter talked like a tough guy about speeding groups up. Painstakingly slow. Wouldn’t return for free.
