Richmond County Bank BallPark- S.I. Yankees
Home of the S.I. Yankees, minor league of the parent N.Y. Yankees. These players are stars right out of college and High School. Some that are good enough will actually play for the Yankees.
Minor League baseball is very entertaining. Every half inning there is some activity going on to keep the crowds interested. I took my cousin from England there, she knew nothing about baseball and she had a great time.
Games start at the end of June and end late August.
Equipment: Bring a baseball to be signed by players. Players are very active in signing autographs for fans. Bring a camera, the best view of any Ballpark anywhere. The backdrop is the statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline. Hugh ships also pass by in the background.
Staten Island Yankees.
The Staten Island Yankees, a class A team, play their home games here at Richmond County Bank Park.
Minor league baseball can be a lot of fun and is quite a good time and a rare chance to see some high end talent on the mend when doing rehab.

South Shore Golf Course
On the South Shore of Staten Island is this course nestled among the trees. One of the more challanging courses on Staten Island because of the thick tree lines down the sides of each hole.
Equipment: Bring your golf clubs, shoes, golf balls and tees and hack away.

La Tourette Golf Course
My favorite course on Staten Island. This course is located in Central Staten Island along the Greenbelt. This course has it's challanges and is a bit more forgiving with someone who has a slice like me. This course is very hilly, so rent a cart.
Also, you might want bring along some type of bug repellant.
Equipment: Bring your golf clubs, shoes, balls and tees. I believe there is a dress code of wearing a collared shirt and a nice pair of shorts.
