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 nearly 7,000 yards. Going out, the front nine is a Par-35, while the back nine sets up as a Par-37.
If you have the kind of swing where your ball tends to find the water, you will fall in love with Marine Park Golf Course. The Ninth Hole will be the only opportunity for a water hazard during your round. As a links-style course, there are many different avenues that can be taken to arrive at each hole, hopefully with a birdie putt.
Speaking of putting, Marine Park Golf Course has been praised as having “the best greens in New York City.” Our quick, but true, greens will make your experience an enjoyable one; other than our friendly staff, the beautifully manicured greens will be one of the main reasons you will want to come back and play the course many times over.
We thank you for visiting us and can’t wait to see you on the links!

Avoid the rough, land your approach shot below the hole, and two-putt (repeat this 18 times). But if you’re like the rest of us and can’t do this on a regular basis, then take a look at some helpful tips below.
HOLE BY HOLE
Hole Number 1:
Start your round with a straight par-5 and get warmed up in a hurry. Nothing too fancy here, just grip it and rip it down this generous-sized fairway.
Hole Number 2:
Avoid the fairway bunker on the right and two on the left of this par-4. With a back-to-front sloped green, you’ll want to keep your approach below the hole to ensure that necessary uphill putt.
Hole Number 3:
The longest and most difficult par-4 on the course is also a dog-leg right. Avoid the fescue grass that borders the 3rd and 4th fairways or it’ll make for a long day. If you survive the first three holes of this course, you just might have a career round!
Hole Number 4:
After the longest par-4 at the 3rd hole, comes the shortest par-4 here at the 4th. Watch out for those three bunkers protecting the green, and you can walk away with a birdie. Don’t hit your approach over the green or you could be in trouble.
Hole Number 5:
Your first look at a par-3 and on a clear day the view of the Empire State Building is spectacular. Thanks to new tee boxes constructed in 2012, this is the shortest hole on the course. Land your tee shot over the front bunker and you’ll be in good shape. If you can shape your shot from left to right, even better.
Hole Number 6:
Another grip it and rip it tee shot, but if you rip it too far right you may have to maneuver around some trees and a bunker to reach this par-4 in two. If you miss to the left you could still have a chance of getting on in two.
Hole Number 7:
One of the more narrow fairways, the par-4 7th hole plays uphill and the green is protected by two bunkers in front. If you’re going to miss your tee shot, miss left, as more fescue awaits you on the right.
Hole Number 8:
The next par-3 runs along the banks of the water channel and is all about pin placement. If you’re putting from the opposite side of the green, you might want to brush up on your morse code to communicate with your partner who is tending the flag on the other side.
Hole Number 9:
You’ll have to thread the needle on your drive if you want to reach this par-4 in two. The first (and only) water hazard, plus bunkers and trees make a straight drive imperative.
