Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1927

Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course: rare indeed for a golf course in the United States to be accorded the suffix "Downs". And with it, in golfing terms at least, "downland" status. Like Crystal Downs in Michigan, Montauk is an essentially inland course that has all the attributes of a rolling, fast-running, linksy "downland' layout.

Here at the far end of Long Island, is another of Robert Trent Jones Sr's sublime designs. Predominantly open, with some tree-lined holes, the ever-undulating terrain imbues the layout with great character. Plenty of stylish bunkering and occasional water hazards further reinforce the layout's defences.

Montauk's two nine-loops contain a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. If there is a standard-bearer, it may be the downhill long par-3 12th. But singling out one hole is to risk doing the others an injustice. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
