Marine Park Golf Course
Marine Park Golf Course is an 18-hole Championship Course that is open to the public year-round. Located in southern Brooklyn, this links-style course was designed in 1964 by world renown architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. It boasts panoramic water views, country club quality greens and fairways, and beautifully manicured driving range and practice areas.
Four sets of tees make for a fun yet challenging day of golf for people of all ages. Play the course from the Red tees at just over 5,200 yards, or as far back as the Blue championship tees measuring over 7,000 yards. Going out, the front nine is a Par-35, while the back nine sets up as a Par-37. It is the longest of all the NYC courses, and unique in its links experience. While there are few trees, the challenges come from the unmowed berms, fast greens, and strong winds coming off of Jamaica Bay.
