best unused golf course five minutes from manhattan (2008)

GOVERNORS ISLAND GOLF COURSE

Hop on the ferry, and minutes later you're teeing off under the shadow of Lower Manhattan and Lady Liberty. Why schlep out to the boroughs or 'burbs for a golf fix, when the GOVERNORS ISLAND GOLF COURSE sits there unused? Keep your ball out of the dry moat. Watch out for flying drives where the fairways intersect. Play 9 twice, and retire for a beer at the Officers Club. Or just imagine it all, until they do something with Governors.
