Double-Teired driving off the East River.
Maybe we’ll have one on the Harlem River? Golf is a great game, but we could sometimes do without the walking, the retrieving of balls and the scorekeeping. For the best part of it—the hitting—without all that annoying “accountability” and “exercise,” we submit the new Randall’s Island Golf Center.
But Randall’s isn’t all about distance. There’s a short game area with a sand bunker, two miniature golf courses tucked in among blossoming trees and nine batting cages. Beginning May 24, they’ll be serving beer in their sunset-ready beer garden and grill, which also offers steak sandwiches and waitresses.
Which means no walking is required here, either.
