NYC Accessible Practice Facilities (Short Range especially)

BillyLikesSotaBillyLikesSota New York, NYMembers Posts: 2

As we look to our first weekend of back to back 60 degree weather, I am eager to get out of the city and sharpen up my short game a bit. Went to play Bethpage, and my chipping was atrocious, and the turf mats at Chelsea Piers or any of the simulator places are so forgiving I don't really get the help I need.

Whether it's in Jersey or NY, I'd love to be able to find a place (public, semi-private, anything accessible for a non-member) where I can access some decent short range facilities. I'm not opposed to paying for access to a facility, but want it to be a decent place to sharpen up my short game.

Does anything along those lines exist around here?

    Where in the city are you located, and do you have a car?

    Not sure how far it is from you but Marine Park always had a decent short-game area ( I haven't been there in awhile though ). A large putting green and a separate chipping green. Even a practice bunker, but it was frequently roped-off and closed. The driving range was terrible though.

    Galloping hill in Kenilworth nJ. It’s about 30-35 minutes outside the city. You can just walk up to the short game area and putt or chip and they have a range as we if you want to hit some balls. They also have a par 3 course.

    Galloping Hill is a solid option if you're in the area. They have a solid amount of space, and it's free to use the short game area. Always enjoyed using their area.

    Super helpful suggestions. Came across both Ferry Point and Galloping Hill when doing some research, helpful to know Galloping Hill is free!
