Douglaston Park Golf Course
Play there late in the day
I try to get in 9 holes and usually can get more. I play after the price drop which is 4 pm and becomes 3 pm on September 15th. Usually if I get there a couple hours before dusk I can get my 9 holes in. The course is in decent shape except for a couple holes where the Canadian Geese make a mess. Beautiful views of the City. This was once North Hills Country Club.
This place can get crowded and is more typical of public golf in the New York Metro area. I hear that golf is in trouble because people are not playing. You never would know that around here.

6 hr round
Saw there were a bunch of open times on Golf Now. Didn't bother booking one because I was unsure exactly what time we'd make it there. Got to the Pro Shop and was told there was at least an hour and a half wait. Went back on Golf Now and booked a tee time 10 minutes from then. Finally got out about 45 minutes later. EXTREMELY slow play. Waiting every hole, every shot. It got too late for us and we had leave after 13.....Passed 16 and there was a FIVE-some with a hole open in front of them. Very poorly managed course. Horrible systems going between the pro shop and starter. Its a shame because the course, though short is a bit tricky and challenging. Wish we had gotten to play all of it. Maybe I'll go back next year and try again....but probably not.

The slowest round I played all season, multiple par 3's back to back to back make it even slower. Course was in very good shape.

Pace of play too slow
We had to wait on every hole for the group in front to tee off. Then the group behind us had to wait for us. The back nine hole has blind tee shots and the group behind hit up on us several times, This pesents a danger of injury. Starters need to increase time spacing between groups. Rangers need to monitor and speed up slower groups to keep up with group in front.
