Eisenhower Golf (9 and 18 hole) Eisenhower Park
East Meadow, Merrick Avenue south of Stewart Avenue
At Eisenhower Park, three of Long Island’s finest golf courses are open to the public, including the famed "Red" Course. The Red Course has a storied history, having been designed by prominent golf architect Devereux Emmet in 1914 and having hosted Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) championships as far back as 1926. More recently, the Red course played host to the PGA Tour’s Commerce Bank Championship.
A second championship-level course, the “White,” was designed by Robert Trent Jones, a major 20th-century architect of American courses. Jones also designed the third 18-hole course at Eisenhower, the “Blue.”
