Great Rock Golf Club
Very challenging course
Numerous bunkers and many slopes. Great challenge and very scenic for Long Island. Must says one of the top 3 courses I've played on LI.

Nice to be back!
It's great to have this course to play on the North fork, Long Island in the heart of wine country. Greens are tough, course is challenging and fun to play. Focus, Focus and Focus.

Tricky greens..some with visible slopes, and some with subtle breaks. Greens were fast. Enjoyed the round, and plan to play again soon.

The new great rock
This is my first time back in about 3 years. They were closed for a while I think a new owner just purchased the place. He is spending lots of money remodeling the place even though it looked good before he bought it. The course is in great condition. It will only get better with this new owner

Better be straight...
It's a pretty decent layout overall with good use of elevation to add length not tallied in the yardage. This course could stand to undergo some landscaping as many holes have little to no rough but trees instead. In fact, trees come into play on literally every shot. Branches hanging over the fairway and out of bounds 12 feet off the green can be frustrating to you or somebody in your group. The notoriously hated par 3 12th hole has been massaged into a (still) short but fun hole with its now relatively flat two tiered green as opposed to its former huge slope sending any downhill putt off the front no matter how softly struck. The greens still run too fast for a public course (fastest greens I've putted all season) at probably a 15 or higher on the stimp. Bring plenty of water because there's no bar, no cart service, no water coolers on the course, and one broken down vending machine that probably hasn't worked since 2012 located by the only bathroom accessible on the course. The bathroom ALSO looks like it hasn't worked since 2012 with toilets that were clogged and overflowing with waste. Avoid at all costs. The grounds crew were filling divots most of the day but seldom bothered to look up and regularly parking their cart in the middle of the fairway requiring us to wait or get their attention to move before teeing off on about a third of the holes. Pro shop and starter were very friendly, ranger drove by about every six holes. Finished in just under four hours.
