Douglaston Park Golf Course
If you want to play slow this is the place to go
This is one of the slowest golf courses and you can play a full round of golf forget about twilight..i'd rather play any Long Island course

A course from the past.
It's been 35 years since I last played the course. It seems to be in much better condition and maybe a different layout. The greens were very nice and the only problem is with so blind shots the rouge is too high to find balls that you could not follow for the hold flight of your ball.

Nice short course for an easy round
This is a city course and they keep it in good condition. I had not played in in a while and was very surprised at how good the condition of the course was. It is a short course (par 67) so you should be able to score really well. Lot of par 3s so if you are hitting the greens you will fair well. There are some challenging holes with some blind shots, but most are pretty straightforward. As with all courses if you are hitting it straight you will be good, especially here as that creates some excellent scoring opportunities. The rough is pretty thick on some holes so better off hitting shorter clubs straighter, especially given the short length. It is nice to throw this course in now and then compared to some of the more difficult courses in the area, lets you feel like you are better than you are :)

Always in good shape
Great place to play. Not overly challenging for average golfers like myself.

This is a sweet little gem tucked into the far eastern reaches of Queens, high on a hill with great views, rolling fairways, undulating greens and surprisingly great conditions. Staff was very friendly and I'd highly recommend the course. Only downsides are that it's got too many par 3s (7), not enough par 5s (2), and bunkering of greens are generally too easy. But you can walk out of here with a low score and a good experience.

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.
