A city as big and busy as New York might not seem like a place where you would find the beauty and tranquility of a great golf course, but the city has several courses that suit golfers of a variety of levels.

Pelham/Split Rock golf course located in The Bronx is the only 36-hole course in the city. It was renovated in 2009 and is known for having several tough holes and a “links style,” meaning it is more open and has fewer obstructions, but plays long.

The Bronx is also home to the oldest public golf course in the nation, the Van Cortlandt Park Golf Course. The course is often hilly and challenging, with severe elevation changes on the back nine.

Brooklyn is home to the Dyker Beach Golf Course, which opened in the 1890s. The facility is a good place to take kids, as it has a six-hole course for children who are just starting to learn the game.

Clearview Park Golf Course in Queens recently underwent several renovations to improve the condition of the course. The views are said to be fantastic, which might be a big reason why this course is the busiest in the city.
