For a rousing round of 18 holes or just some putting practice, there are plenty of NYC golf courses to choose from. Head to any of the five boroughs and you’ll find world-class courses and lots of beauty.

Golf Courses and Ranges in New York City

Premier golf courses dot the city for a relaxing game at any hour.



Practice your swing and putting skills right on a pier by the Hudson at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers. Whether you’re a pro or an amateur, you can brush up your skills at the resident Golf Academy or use the full-swing simulators.

Staten Island

La Tourette Golf Course has 18 holes that sprawl over hills and valleys on this lush part of Staten Island. The clubhouse, a restored manor, is elegance defined. Enjoy the luxury of this course whether you are playing a round, putting around in the practice facility, or taking part in a major golf event.


For mini golf or a practice game, Flushing Meadows Golf Center is a great choice in Queens. Take the family along for some putting over streams and bridges, or enjoy playing a golf game at night — this is the only lighted course in NYC.


Open year-round, Marine Park Golf Course offers manicured greens and sweeping views right in Brooklyn. Robert Trent Jones, Sr., a well-regarded architect, designed the course in 1964. Along with the championship-level course, there’s a driving range and places to practice your technique.

The Bronx

The only course where you can play 36 holes in New York City is Pelham/Split Rock Golf Course in the Bronx. Plus, the tree-lined fairways and lovely links will make you feel like you’ve left the city miles behind you.
