Smithtown Landing Golf Club offers both an 18-hole regulation course and a nine-hole executive course. The courses are open to the public on weekdays and to Smithtown residents on the weekends. The Regulation Course has a surprisingly tough layout with subtle but tricky contours throughout that cause some challenging lies. Mature trees line the fairways, making accuracy a necessity and there are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. At 6,114 yards from the back tees, it's a golf course that requires strategy over length, beginning with the first hole. This dogleg right par 4 will force you to carefully think about the placement off the tee. In addition to the two golf courses, Smithtown Landing also has two practice greens with surrounding short game areas and a driving range.

Greens as good as a private club. Much thanks for the starter to get us off early to beat the rain, Pace of play was good until the back nine......3 groups lined up on 10th hole.

I have always given this course rave reviews.. The course layout, well kept and staff is terrific.

Perfect weather and pace of play was a bit slow but bearable. We make the turn about 3:00 and the starter let out groups on the back nine,, Getting old myself so careful how I word it but these guys were 78+ years old . The back nine was backed up and I stood there amazed.... We skipped ahead 4 holes and continued our play...I can only give 1 star...

This course is a little short especially from the white tees and is not very well manicured but pace of play was good. Greens were slow as well. Overall about as expected from a town course.

The staff is always friendly and the course was in great shape. The pace of play was comfortable and the weather was perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing. Had my best 9 holes when my new Epic $529.00 driver snapped on the 9th tee. That’s life take it in stride

Smithtown Landing is always in great shape, even this early in the season.

The only issue with today’s round was it was ladies day, it made for a long front nine.

This is normally a great course "in season" but right now it's pretty rough. The grass is not growing, the fairways have been "strip aerated" and are "thin", and the greens have been recently aerated. I would suggest waiting a month and coming back when the place is back to it's normally "great" state. In May and June the course should be back to 5-stars.

Booked a 1 p.m. tee time through GolfNow, we showed up and discovered that the course was closed. No one from the golf course or GolfNow bothered to contact us in any way. My friend drove from Jersey to meet me to play, needless to say this was one of the most unprofessional experiences I've ever had on a golf course and would affect my decision making in the future with regards to playing the course.

To top it off we were charged for the round, so everyone was quick to take the money but not so quick with the customer service to inform us the course was closed and of course not charges. Now I have to call GolfNow to try to get my money back, again just a bad experience overall.
