Although outshone by the Black Course, the Red at Bethpage State Park, also designed by pioneering architect A. W. Tillinghast, is not without its appeal as a kind of lite-version of its more famous cousin. Thus the Red has, by comparison, fairways that are more generous, greens that are more even, far fewer bunkers, no water hazards, trees that tend to be decorative rather than strategic and considerably less length than the championship course. There is as a consequence proportionately more room for recovery from less-than-perfect tee shots and goofs along the greens. The upkeep is surprisingly good given how heavily the Red is used, for whatever its limitations, it remains one of the top public golfing facilities anywhere in Long Island. In sum, what the Red delivers is an enjoyable layout that is nevertheless intriguing and challenging, and that makes for a relatively relaxed experience

Much friendlier of a course compared to the Black and Blue and much easier to get on. Get there before 5 am to get on the Black and Blue or show up at 7am and get right on this heavily played course
