  • Indian Head Golf Park
    Practice is the foundation of golf. Without it, the game can be frustrating, eventually sending golfers' into a fragile state of agitation. Knowing how important practice is, Indian Head Golf Park's instructors and staff focus their efforts on helping golfers improve their game. At the park's well-lit driving range, staff members keep golfers well stocked with buckets of range balls to blow off steam as they aim for the ball-retriever cart. Instructor Bob Greenstein works with students during private lessons to fine-tune their swings, and he hosts junior golf camps during summer to introduce youngsters to the game.

  • Spring Lake Golf Club
    When a trio of Long Island potato farmers joined forces with a golf-course designer in the 1960s, the result was something spectacular. The group transformed 180 wooded acres in Middle Island into the stunning Spring Lake Golf Club, which opened to the public in 1967. The property features two courses, the longest of which is dubbed The Thunderbird. This 18-hole course reaches an impressive 7,048 yards from the tips, and its rippling fairways spill over into large, undulating greens. Its terrain is so varied that it may require golfers to use every club in their bag, though typically not all at once. Spring Lake's second course, meanwhile, offers golfers a less-intense challenge. The nine-hole, par 36 Sandpiper stretches out along a lake, framing rounds with majestic weeping willows.

  • Fairchild Wheeler Golf Club
    Before teeing off at Fairchild Wheeler Golf Club, you must decide: red or black. No, you don't have to spin a roulette wheel to determine which tee box to use, but you do have to choose which of the property's two courses to play. Both links check in at 18 holes, and each one measures just over 6,500 yards from the back tees. The par-71 red course requires careful tee shots, and the par-72 black course boasts newly renovated fairways and greenside bunkers. Before tackling a round, golfers can take advantage of on-site lessons, including sessions at the club's indoor teaching studio equipped with video cameras and swing analysis software. Younger golfers can sharpen their skills, too, especially by attending the club's Nike junior summer golf camps.

  • Studio Golf Wilton
    At Studio Golf, players smack their golf balls into a large screen that displays a highly accurate visual of a real golf course and uses ball flight information to produce real-world results. Rather than travel to oft-distant courses and schlep their clubs around 18 holes, players get to remain indoors and let the computer do the traveling for them. The system can be configured for lessons and clinics in addition to 9- or 18-hole rounds, allowing players to focus on aspects of their game such as drives off the tee or iron approaches.

  • Oronoque Country Club
    A diverse collection of mature trees populates Oronoque Country Club's 18-hole course, their sturdy trunks imbuing the 6,575-yard layout with the venerable feel that only comes with age. However, the trees are far from just a cosmetic asset. Whether casting their shadows over straight fairways or using their knotty arms to block corner-cutting drives on the course's five dog-leg holes, the trees play a major role in making the mid-length course both challenging to golfers and attractive to retirement-age squirrels. The course also features two ponds that come into play, including one that creates a forced-carry tee shot on the par 3 third hole. Elsewhere, the club boasts a driving range, a practice green, and a trio of golf instructors that help correct swings and teach visitors to ride bareback on golf carts. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,575 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 73.7 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees * Four tee options * Scorecard

  • Oak Hills Park, Administrator
    Oak Hills Golf Course opened for play in 1969 under the direction of architect Alfred H. Tull, who also helped design such renowned courses as Brandywine, Congressional, and Westchester Country Clubs. The 18-hole layout bears many features that became design traits of Mr. Tull's throughout his illustrious seven-decade career. The course is characterized by dense, tree-lined fairways with curved features, rolling terrain with elevation changes, and large green designs that showcase his inability to draw a perfect circle. Golfers must wield their putters confidently to slay the aggressive greens on holes such as No. 5, a par 3 with a 195-yard tee shot with forced carry over water, and No. 11, with its sharp dogleg fairway and right-to-left sloping green protected by numerous bunkers. Though a public course, Oak Hillls offers many of the amenities found at a private club. Among these include eight tennis courts and an onsite restaurant, ideal for posting "lost golf ball" signs and celebrating after a day on the fairways. Course at a Glance 18-hole, par 71 course Total length of 6,317 yards from the back tees Course rating of 70.3 from the back tees Slope of 133 from the back tees Three sets of tees Scorecard
