Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course

Montauk Downs was originally developed in 1927. Robert Trent Jones Sr. redesigned the present course in 1968 with assistance from his son, Rees." Montauk Downs State Park was purchased by State Parks in 1980. The ever-changing wind currents off the ocean and bay can change the way the course plays each day.

Robert Moses State Park Pitch and Putt Course

The Robert Moses State Park golf course is a fairly secluded short course meandering through the native beach style trees and vegetation. The course is located at the western end of the park near Field 2, directly adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. It is an excellent course that offers a taste of the ocean, with the high greenery and challenge of a true golf course.

The park has a boat basin for day use. Anglers can fish from a pier or in the surf. Visitors can swim or surf at the sand beach and picnic nearby.

Sag Harbor State Golf Course

This 48.8-acre, 9-hole golf facility is located in the middle of a 341-acre parcel known as the Barcelona Neck Natural Resources Management Area. The property was acquired in 1989. Situated on a peninsula and surrounded by woodlands, bluffs and wetlands, this delightful 9-hole course may be played as nine or 18 holes.

Sunken Meadow State Park Golf Course

Sunken Meadow State Park features 27 holes that may be played as either 9 or 18 holes. The first two courses were built in 1962, followed by the Blue Course in 1964. All three courses were designed by golf course architect Alfred Tull, who also designed the Yellow course and redesigned the Blue course at Bethpage State Park. Tull preferred to utilize the natural lay of the land, bringing the existing terrain into his design. Golfers can expect a somewhat hilly and variable layout surrounded by mature woodlands, offering an attractive and relaxing experience for their golf round. In addition to the beautiful woodland setting, Sunken Meadow's driving range offers expansive panoramic views of the Long Island Sound.

Eisenhower Park

The facility also has four nine-hole executive courses for golfers looking for a more relaxed round.
