NYC Metro Area: Public Grass Ranges

4 posts in this topic

This is my list. Did I miss any?
LI:
Hamlet Windwatch (Weekends, variable weekdays)
Pine Ridge GC (Weekends end of May)
Spring Lake (Not as good condition as above)
Hamlet Willow (Never been)
NJ:
Neshanic Valley GC (Good rate for balls, pay for short game area)
Charleston Springs
Heron Glen
High Bridge
North of NYC:
Centennial GC (Really expensive, but a great long and short game facility)
Links at Union Vale I think has this new simulated grass - never tried it.
And the Randall's Island grass section - last year was awful. Not worth the high price IMHO.

I missed two:

Staten Island Golf Practice Center - 718-317-0101, 9-9, $11 bucket, $14 surcharge, $175 mbrshp

The Brooklyn Golf Center - 718-253-6816, 8-9, $11 bucket, $10 surcharge

I wrote down the info so I have someplace to refer to. Maybe it'll help someone out.

Don't know how good the conditions are. I'll update this thread after I try these places.

Come on NY metro area folks, help me out, I'm walking here! (stupid Midnight Cowboy joke)

Brooklyn Golf Center http://campl.us/4yS Grass a little dodgy but way better than Randall's Island. Grass is open weather permitting, not just weekends. Looks like I'll be going here now instead of schlepping to Jersey.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
