Not sure where to begin here, I never write negative reviews about courses but this will be my first. I did not bring my clubs with me from out of town so I used a rental set, which I was charged $30 for, and the value of the set probably wasn't even that much, they were very outdated and cheap clubs and I can't believe that a place that supposedly is "The Nicest Course on Long Island" (according to their website) would have them. The cart fleet is outdated for sure and needs to be switched out for newer. The pace of play was terrible, even for the in-season, it took an hour and a half for the first 4 holes and the only thing that opened up the course for us was the fact that we got beer from the beverage cart girl and the delay there gave the many groups in front of us time to get ahead. The course itself is in decent condition, but the greens were in bad shape, I know it was a bad winter here but I would have expected better from, again, "The Nicest Course on Long Island", especially having played here before on numerous occasions, it was a huge letdown and I don't think I'll be back there again.

Always a great place
Big greens and some long holes. But always well maintained and a good value! Swan lake is one of Long Islands Best, consistently well maintained since I've been going there over 20 Years.

I had played Swan Lake years ago and remembered how big and nice the greens were. The greens are now in terrible condition which ruins the round. I've never seen such bad greens. Other than the greens, the course is beautiful.

The fairways and rough were in excellent condition.
The course is long but is pretty wide open. The water is for the scenery and doesn't really come into play much. The greens are very large. The practice green had winter damage. A few greens had some winter damage on them which made putting a challenge on those greens otherwise I would have rated the overall condition excellent. Hopefully in a month or so those dead spots will be repaired.

For $75, Their greens had patches of dirt so putting was frustrating and as of now I don't think I would book another day here.

Greens were large and, in most cases, pretty good shape. Fairways and tee boxes were well maintained. Water hazards on the course were fair and not a deterrent. Not sure I get 10th hole OB stakes. Pace of play was great

greens are bad.
this course is usually in terrific condition. huge greens and fairly wide fairways. fairways and tee boxes are in wonderful condition. the greens had some really bad areas due to rough winter. I have played this course many times and would highly recommend it when green damage is taken care of.
