Pace of Play needs attention

*Pace of Play was very slow

Good track

Needs a Ranger to keep it moving. We got bunched up and packed it in after 16. I have played here many times. Good track. Some very unique holes.
Driving range balls are old and dirty. Should be better for the prices you pay here. Other than that - Good track. Just keep it moving!

Great course but very slow pace on Sunday afternoons

I love playing this course and have played here over 10 times in 2020. However I had a tee time today at 2:10, I usually play earlier and the round took over 5:20 minutes to play. We had to wait on every hole and there were no rangers speeding up play. Also I saw three men from different foursomes using trees in the open view as “facilities” which I find in very poor taste. In private clubs this would be a reason for suspension. This will not prevent me from going back but I will consider other options in the future.

Ok course

Played on Father's Day for the first time. Check in was good but they rushed us from the range to first tee early. Condition of course was OK. There was a weird abandoned Par 3 hole not being used. Food and drinks were good, cart girl came by fairly often. Tee boxes were a mess and in much need of a repair. This course is about $30 over priced. I've played better for less. Glad I played but probably won't be back.

Quality Course - But - Pace of Play needs to be addressed

This course is a GEM. Rivals most Private and exclusive clubs. The only drawback is the pace of play. Message to Management...Move to 13 min internals vs. 10 min. 5 HR rounds are a complete turnoff..

Impossible Greens and Slow Pace of Play

Our tee time was delayed because it was ladies club day and there were many NJ ladies playing ahead of us. Every hole we waited on the tee to tee off and waited for them to leave the greens. The round took more than 5 hours, which is unacceptable.
The holes are challenging both because of the layouts and the sloping greens. The greens are fast and the ball never stops even when you hit it. Some holes are cut on a slope so its impossible to get close to the cup.
The staff tried to help with the pace of play but the management allowed too many golfers to go out on the course.

Slow Pace of Play and Sloping Greens

The round took more than 5 hours and there were too many golfers on the course. The holes are difficult to follow and the rough was too high. We waited on every hole to tee off because of the slow play. The sloping greens made it next to impossible to one putt any hole. The 18th hole is going up a long steep hill with limited views of the green.

Quality Track

The golf course offers some interesting and unforgettable holes. The track is in excellent condition and rivals most private golf clubs. It offers some challenging holes but overall very fair. I would highly recommend this golf course. I will certainly return and play again. The only drawback was the pace of play, we waited on all 18holes... it took 5 hrs plus to finish our round playing as a 3 some on a Monday morning at 10 am. Advice to management need space out the foursomes.

Swe9177, our sincere apologies in regard to the use of our restrooms. We were following the states guidelines and keeping our clubhouse closed to all patrons during the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately that included the restrooms. I am very happy to report that the clubhouse is now open and the restrooms are available.
I do hope to see you back up at the club soon!

good layout

Good variety to the layout - lots of interesting holes.
9 and 10 are not my favorites - the rest of the course is very challenging but fair - any handicap will have a good time

Really liked it, would play again

Lots of variety here - hole design kept the round very fun. Course was in fantastic condition, with the exception of a few of the tee boxes. Had a bunch of ant hills and divots.

Also, my cart died on 17. Not the worst thing in the world to walk, but I had a heavy cart bag so meh - so look out for that. If the cart is struggling, call the pro shop.

All in all, you won’t be disappointed. Get in early and avoid the late morning rush
