This park derived its name from a battle which took place on a nearby island on the Oswego River in the mid-1700s. In 1916 most of the land owned by F. A. Emerick was deeded to the state. Battle Island officially became a state park in 1938 when the remaining land was turned over.

The golf course first opened for play in 1936. The course was designed by Frederick Emerick.

We got to the course 40 minutes before our t-time. we were rushed to get out on the course. The 4some in front of us was so slow that there was a 6hole gap in front them by the 4th hole. They would not let people by. Wecalled the pro shop to have them send a ranger out or a rep for the course to tell them to speed up play or let faster players pass. The pro shop rafused to send anyone out. I could see the attendant sitting in a golf cart talking to a cart person and a maint. person w/ my rangefinder. This round took 5.5 hours on a course that should only 3.5 to 4 max. When we said something to manager about we were told if you don't like it play someplace else. This is a state run course. When you don'.t have to worry about getting fired you can treat people like you don't care

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area

My son and I had a great time playing this course. As high handicappers, we appreciated the short par 4's. Greens were beautifully manicured and very sloped making for challenging putts. We had to travel about 60 miles one way to play here but had a discount coupon so it was worth the trip. If this course were closer, we would play it a lot!

Would travel: 30-60 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Battle Island is short, running less than 6,000 even from the tips. However, many of the greens are elevated making birdies opportunities difficult. Several holes feature trouble such as woods or water, or even a busy state road. On the weekdays the whole course can be walked for a dollar a hole, and a special senior discount is available (10$ to walk 18). The fairways are watered and are generally in nice shape, not perfect. Early in the season the course was in substandard shape, but the transformation into the summer months has been drastic. The greens are beautiful and smooth. You will definitely get your money's worth here.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
