Description: South Shore Golf Club is not overly long (6,300 yards from the tips), but this course features the most varied assortment of golf holes as you'll find anywhere. You start with one of the toughest opening holes anywhere before you know it your on the drivable (270 yards) Par 4 4 th hole.
No matter what hole you're playing rest assured you'll be hitting into a tight, tree-lined fairway and your approach will be to a green that will well protected by bunkers and thick rough.
After nearly two years of improvements including new tee boxes, bunkers, a cart paths the course is arguably in the best condition of any in the city.
Directions: Staten Island Expressway (227) to West Shore Expressway (440 South) to Exit 4 (Arthur Kill Road) turn left at light. Stay right onto Huguenot Ave. entrance is 200 yards on right.
Our Favorite Hole: No. 12. This 460-yard Par 5 can be reached in two by long hitters. The fairway is very narrow with trees on both sides. The green doglegs off to the right. You must either lay-up short of the deep gully and bunkers guarding the green or try to carry it.
