played here in August, what a shame. I used to really enjoy this track. Many tee boxes were bare, something you would expect from a low level town course. Bunkers were all over grown. I know its closing at the end of the season, but close it now

Tallgrass is an 18-hole public course in Shoreham, Long Island, a place most notable for a failed nuclear power plant. Rumor has it this course may be turned into a sod farm or solar farm. So if you're heading out to the North Fork, this is a worthy stop for your and your clubs. The course offers a nice mix... More

Played with a 4some. Course was in great shape. The greens as advised by starter were fast, very fast. Took us 4 1/2 hrs. The 4some in front of us were rather slow.

Great Course. This is a challenging course with lots of places to get in trouble. If you are a low to mid range handicap you will like this track. It is pricey in season and you should book your tee time early (before 8:30am) if you want to finish in 4 hours or less.

Go spend your money elsewhere. There are multiple other courses in the area where they treat the patrons like human beings. Played here in early August, headed to the range to warm up. I first noticed that there is a huge grass range but for some reason they wanted people to hit off the mats. As I made my way... More

Having been an avid golfer for over 20 years, it remains one of my "bucket list" items to play the Old Course at St. Andrews. Until that great day comes, I am quite content to test my golfing prowess by playing "links" golf at Tallgrass Golf Course. Designed in 2000 by Gil Hanse, Tallgrass possesses all but one of the...

Not a traveler, but a native LIer. Having played most every public course on LI, I can tell you that this course is my absolute favorite. I love great golf course design, and what the designer managed to do with an originally flat piece of land here is nothing short of amazing. The course is a beautiful links-style course, with...

I've played here from it's opening until now. The tall fescue grass is no longer a major hazard since the current administration has cut it down to quicken play (I assume) and ease up the course. It has taken it's beatings from a lack of investment, but it is still an enjoyable links course.
