      What day are looking to play?

      You could always try the phone tee time system. That’s where I’d go first.

      Anyone have some recent experience?

  3. The phone system has problems. I have gotten thought to the sweet reservation voice a few minutes after 7 PM only to be disconnected halfway through her message. This has happened several times with different phones and phone numbers. And i do know how to use a phone and are familiar with the Bethpage phone reservation system. There is something fishy going on.

    Anyone else with similar stories?

  4. Go down to Bethpage @ 3:45 PM and you have a better shot of getting on the course of your choice. Twi-Light time

    Can you tell me the dates that the individual courses were open?

      @Haig Kazarian

      From the NYS State Park webpage on Bethpage:

      In the early 1930s, the Bethpage Park Authority purchased the Lenox Hills Country Club and other adjacent properties to build what we now know as Bethpage State Park. Famed golf course architect A.W. Tillinghast was hired to design and oversee construction of three new golf courses (Black, Red and Blue) as well as modify the Lenox Hills Course which became the Green Course. Due to the increased demand for golf, the Yellow Course designed by Alfred Tull was opened in 1958. Approximately 300,000 rounds are played annually on the five courses at Bethpage, all of which start from the Clubhouse area.
