Either I missed the thread in my search results, or there aren't too many golfers on this board. I'm moving up to Manhattan next Friday, and coming from Miami and being an avid golfer, will of course be bringing up my clubs with me. I've looked into some country clubs in Jersey, but in the long run don't think I'd get enough use out of them to make being a member worthwhile. Can anyone recommend any courses within 30-60 minutes of the city, prefferably reachable by public transport (as in not needing more than a short taxi ride from the train/bus station), that are a reasonable price? What is a reasonable price for courses up there? I've been spoiled with my choice of a dozen+ courses within a 20 minute drive for $50 or less with cart fee...something tells me I won't be getting that up there. Thanks-

I can vouch for the Douglaston Golf Course, not because I play golf, but because it's the golf course of choice for the discerning avid golfers in the area:
