The Black Course at Bethpage State Park is one of the absolute best tests of golf in the world. The Black Course has hosted two US Opens and one PGA Championship and will soon host the Ryder Cup. Although extremely difficult, it is equally fair which is why I love it. It is always in pristine condition despite being open to the public. Don’t expect to ride on a golf cart, it is for walkers only. For a true test of golf open for anyone to play, The Black Course is at the top of my list!
