Best Public Golf Course
Readers, upstate: Rock Manor Golf Course (1319 Carruthers Lane, Wilmington, 295-1400)
Readers, downstate: Baywood Greens (32267 Clubhouse Way, Long Neck, 947-9800)
Critics, upstate: Though Middletown is generally flat, the course at Frog Hollow Golf Club offers “good hills and turns,” says Chen. “Frog Hollow is also reasonably priced, with a nice clubhouse. For the money, you can’t beat it.” (1 Wittington Way, Middletown, 376-6500)
Critics, downstate: Covered with man-made ponds, woodsy areas, bright white sand traps, thousands of flowers and perfectly manicured grounds, Baywood Greens’ verdant championship course has won over many a linksman, including Meoli and Leishear. “How could you not love this place?” Leishear says. “When it’s in bloom, you feel like you’re at Augusta. Since they’ve expanded, it’s bigger and better than ever.” (32267 Clubhouse Way, Long Neck, 947-9800)
