Destination Guide

Destination: New York Metro

Included in the 11,842 square miles of the New York City Metro area, the most populous region in the country, are New York City as well as cities in New Jersey and Connecticut. High energy Big Apple has theaters, ethnic neighborhoods, cultural assets like the Lincoln Center and Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Empire State Buildings, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Certainly New York City is a-buzz with activity night and day.

Those living in the Big Apple without a car, can expect to get their golf fix at places like the New York Golf Center in Chelsea Piers or Drive 495 in Soho where you can practice your swing, putt and take golf lessons. In New York anything is possible, even golf amidst the skyscrapers.

Since you can play 18 holes in an hour on the simulator at Golf Manhattan on 25th Street, you'll be left with plenty of time to take in a Broadway Show, dine on ginger duck and mooncakes in China Town, shop cool boutiques and high-end stores, browse art galleries and catch a game in Yankee Stadium.

Those looking for real turf to play, can travel to eastern Long Island, Staten Island, New Jersey, Connecticut or Westchester County, N.Y. You can drive or take public transportation. For example to get to Mosholu Golf Course in the Bronx, you take No. 4 subway to the last stop, Woodlawn Road, while Dyker Beach Golf Course in Brooklyn -- near the site of the largest battle of the American Revolution, the Battle of Brooklyn, and one of the oldest golf courses in New York -- is just across the street from a Manhattan Express bus stop.

The beauty of playing in so dense an area are the other things you can do when you've holed out. After playing the busy Douglaston Golf Course or the tree-lined Forest Park Golf Course in Queens, whether you're a Mets fan or not, you'll love the new Citi Field in Flushing where there really isn't a bad seat in the stadium and the concessions are fun.

Typically urban golf courses are built on limited land space so they are shorter than today’s new monster-length tracks. And since Metro New York is home to hundreds of golfers, don't bank on zipping around in less than four hours. Your mantra: Relax and enjoy the day.

    The rough at Winged Foot stands so thick, the grass blades so bunched together and solid, that it feels like you're walking on a giant's lawn. The behemoth from "Jack and the Beanstock" may be able to move easily in this stuff, but for a mere mortal every step is a trudge. One of the great delights of this week's U.S. Open at Winged Foot is sure to be the sight of the world's best golfers stomping through the tall grass, searching for their balls like two-bit 25 handicappers.

  • Dyker Beach Golf 'Backbreaker Sundays' part of Dyker Beach's Brooklyn attitude

    Apparently the staff at Dyker Beach Golf Course thought the Lord said, "and on the seventh day ye shall test!" On Backbreaker Sundays here, all flags are placed in the most difficult spots on the greens. Some locals love it - some cringe in terror. With the help of a cleaned up neighborhood, Dyker Beach is once again one of the most coveted rounds in the city (even on Sundays). And it's a quick trip from any borough.

  • Mosholu Golf Water project to bring big changes at Bronx course

    Mosholu Golf Course is only a short subway ride from midtown Manhattan. To thousands of Bronx and Manhattan residents it's their golfing sanctuary, where they can boast of having a charming little course as their own. But immediate and big changes over the long haul are in store for this little course. A $1.3 billion water filtration plant to be built on the existing golf course property had been caught in a prolonged tug-of-war between opposition from neighborhoods surrounding the Bronx site and the recommendation of the city's Department of Environmental Protection. But no longer.
