Golfers of all skill levels flock to the popular Bethpage State Park, which offers a total of five 18-hole courses with unique designs and varying degrees of difficulty. The notoriously challenging Black Course is the most well known of the five. It served as host to the U.S. Open in 2002 and 2009. The golf course, which has one of the highest slope ratings in the Northeast, is recommended only for low-handicappers. The layout features narrow fairways and small greens that demand accuracy and careful strategy. To further test your skills, there is a treacherous bevy of hazards including high rough and large, sloping bunkers strategically placed around both the greensides and fairways. One of the most memorable holes is the par-5 fourth, an exacting three-shotter where the only way to reach the green is with a precise approach from the right.
