Episode 9: Bethpage Black

April 30, 2020 08:03 PM

In the early 1980s, a warning sign was placed near the Bethpage State Park Black Course's first tee. It reads: "The Black Course Is An Extremely Difficult Course Which We Recommend Only For Highly Skilled Golfers." Despite the warning, the public access course which opened in 1936 and has hosted the U.S. Open (2002 and 2009) and the PGA Championship (2019), has long been a favorite of muni golfers in the New York metro area.
