Bethpage Black Course

The Course

Truly a public course, the People’s Country Club is a punishing round of golf. The signature sign posted on the first tee warns golfers of the difficulty and advices only highly skilled golfers to challenge the course. Tiger Woods was the only golfer to break par at -3 to win the first US Open held in a truly public course in 2002.


Bethpage Black Golf Course is one of the five 18-hole golf courses in Bethpage State Park. No further description needed as this course is a world-renowned golf course and is on every golfer’s bucketlist.

Designed by famed golf course architect A.W. Tillinghast, along with the other two courses; Red and Blue, the Black course has been consistently ranked among the top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in America per Golf Digest for nearly twenty years.

This is home to two United States Open Championships (i.e. 2002 and 2009) and will also host two Barclays PGA Tour events, the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup.

Despite the difficult condition golfers from all over the world come to experience and take the punishment that is sure to come. The PGA professional has been coming back perennially not because it’s a course they love playing but certainly because of the majestic setting and the ultimate challenge it posed.

And you know it’s a great course when even though this classic course has been beating up the PGA professional every time they came, It is still a perennial venue for the PGA tour. It will host The Ryder Cup in 2024 proving yet again the popularity and ultimate challenge that the golf world seeks from a great golf track to determine the best golfers in the world. The uniqueness of this experience is why we have built our company around Bethpage Black.
