I've played the Rock once, not bad.  I love Delaware Park, but I hear they lost a few holes recently due to all the rain!

I used to play the Rock before the current design.  The older course was a better layout but the conditions were....well let's just say not good.

Yeah, it has been a long time since I played it as well.  It was interesting but the holes were too close to each other.  I see we have the same logo...by far my favorite course!!!!  Can't wait for this year for the PGA Championship!  I'll be there!

I moved to Long Island in 2011 and the course is pretty much in my backyard.  I usually only play the Black once or twice a year when I get guilted into it, but a fantastic track nonetheless.

Yes it is, however the people could not be more rude there.  We had a foursome coming from Delaware and Maryland to play on the black course.  We left here at 6am, for a 1:00 tee time.  They had a storm roll through as we were on our way to the course.  We show up and a sign said closed.  We went inside and spoke to the people in the proshop and they told us a storm dumped about 2" of rain in a little over an hour so they closed the course down.  He told us to talk to the reservation desk and when we did they could have cared less.  A man was in front of us arguing with them that he was on hole 3 when the course came out to get him.  He asked for a rain check or a refund of his money and they told him no to both.  Hole 3!!!!  Crazy!

Welcome to public golf on Long Island. That is why I joined a private club as that is the attitude at most public courses in the island.

Yeah, that's too bad!  I figured that they know their product is fantastic so people will just deal with it.  Long story short, we went to Trump Ferry Point which was beautiful, got to meet Michael Breed and played some good golf!  We went back to Bethpage a few weeks later and the rest is golf history.

You also need to keep in mind that the employees at Bethpage are employees of NY State. The course is run by the division of state parks.
