Laurel Links Country Club is a private 18-hole golf course located in Laurel, New York, on Long Island's East End.
The course first opened for play on Labor Day weekend 2002. The course was designed by Kelly Blake Moran.
The course measures 7,018 from the tips and plays to a par-71. The middle tees at 6,519 yards are enough challenge for all but scratch golfers. The front nine is pretty open with challenges from shifting winds, bunkers, tall grass, and numerous mounds covered by sand and vegetation. The green complexes present a variety of short-game options but also demand a high degree of skill. The greens are smooth and fast.
Starting with the par-four eighth hole, the course turns toward the woods for a stretch of holes that favor accuracy over distance. The final three holes are grip-and-rip fun, with # 16 being a short par four that big hitters can choose to challenge with driver, #17 a dogleg par five over water, and #18 a classic par-four finish, with rounds often ending in front of an audience on the clubhouse porch. That last green is the only time golfers play directly in front of the clubhouse, thanks to the course’s out-and-back routing.

Great course would definitely recommend it to any one remotely close by. It's worth a drive. Food is great. When I went I had a great caddy. One of the best I have ever played. Pace of play can be slow sometimes but I hear from the members it's because of all of the people that love this course as much as I do. 5 out of 5
