About Bethpage State Park -The Blue

Bethpage State Park -The Blue, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Farmingdale, New York.

The Blue Course was one of the three Beth page courses designed by Tillinghast. In 1960, it was redesigned by Alfred Tull (to provide room for the Yellow Course). The front nine are considered very challenging, with an easier back nine to finish a round of golf. Some of the slopes are fairly steep. The Blue course is Bethpage's second most challenging course, second only to the Black. Most of the greens, as on the other courses are heavily bunkered and elevated.

First tee time was 9:00 am and ours was 9:40 am - we were either fifth or sixth group out. Granted it was already 89 degrees at tee time and we finished the front 9 in just over two hours, but the back nine took over three hours. The group in front of us had two walkers and by the 10th hole they were one hole behind and by the 14th hole over two holes behind. The heat may have slowed their walking, but they took forever addressing the ball and putting.... Pace of play is always the problem, but they never have rangers out trying to improve pace of play......!

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level

The Blue Course is second only to the Black. Length, hills, elevated, well protected greens make the Blue very challenging test. This being said the pace of play can be excruciatingky slow. We do not play the Blue, unless we are in the first 3 out and we know the 2 groups in front of us.

Expect to pay close to $70 for greenfees (1) and a cart (good for 2). Get to this public course early and choose any of the five courses (they are all respectable). Expect to wait more than an hour to be able to play. Food in the club house is good and there is a driving range. The pace of play on all the courses is slow (5+hours). The par threes on the Blue are more difficult than the famous Black course.
