Crab Meadow Golf Course is located along the picturesque north shore of Long Island, offering breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound on each shot.
The property is nestled amongst the rolling hills and natural beauty of a coastal community that provides golfers with a peaceful journey around a well-designed golf course. Designed by architect William F. Mitchell, the 18-hole par 72 golf course is 6,574/5,658 yards with a rating of 71.6/73.7 and a slope of 125/126.
Crab Meadow Golf Course recently completed an extensive renovation resulting in a clubhouse with all the latest amenities. A new and expanded golf shop features top-of-the-line apparel and equipment for you to choose from. While playing their scenic golf course, you can enjoy the use of their new fleet of EZGO golf carts. Add in their professional staff and friendly atmosphere, and it adds up to an enjoyable visit.

Crab Meadow Golf Course was in great shape with well-groomed fairways and smooth manicured greens.
After the first two holes, it became apparent that this golf course is not only set on a beautiful piece of real estate, but it is also a true test of a golfers ability to handle blind drives and sloping fairways. More
