The reviewer who says the lady who runs the course is a soulless dragon may have been too harsh on soulless dragons. We arrived at 4:10pm, after paying $10 to park plus the toll to get over to the Riis Beach area. The lady behind the glass just wagged her finger at me rather than open the glass and speak. When I asked what she meant, she just yelled "CLOSED!!!!" still from behind the glass. I replied that their posted course hours say they close at 5pm. Again, her reply was a wagging finger and "I SAID CLOSED!!!" We left, out $10 for parking and two bridge-crossing tolls, but wiser knowing what we were up against. I called later in the week and found out from someone at Brooklyn Golf Center that Riis Beach Golf closes at six, but the last *tee* time is 4 pm. If youre looking for options, head up to Flushing Meadows Golf Center. The hours are better, the course is in better shape, and the people that run it probably wont singe your hair if you upset them.
Last tee time is 5pm. Be aware this is a walking course only. The Q35 and one other bus goes here. Car parking is $10.00 paid by cash or check only and you have to write your SSAN on the check. You can also buy a season pass Walking carts cost $7.00 payable in cash only. Besides that, its a nice course with only par-3 holes. Its on Rockaway beach, so it has a nice food court, etc. I would give this a five but I hated paying cash for parking and the walking cart. They need accept debit/credit cards to earn a 5.
Great pitch and putt course by the beach. Im just learning the game, and its a perfect way to work on your short game. I would give it five stars if it had more lefty tees. A lot of them are missing so I have to use the righty tees. Play some golf, eat some great food at the Riis Park Beach Bazaar and vendors, and hit the beach for day of fun.
Fun little par three. Half the lights are broken. The woman who runs this is actually real life dragon so look out. She breaths fire and has no soul. Otherwise this is a fun venue to shoot some laid back golf... windy as heck so be sure to bring an 8 or 9 iron for those insane shots into the wind...
