Holes 1-2 and 12-18 were designed by Donald Ross, the remainder by the Gordons. A few years ago they renovated all of the tees and bunkers, it really improved the course, which is usually in impeccable condition. The greens are the most challenging part of the course. 18 has a neat two-tiered green. 1 is probably the fastest on the course. Most putts on 15 seem straight. Other than the creek that goes across several holes, the only notable water hazard is the pond on 8. This hole seems to play longer than the yardage.

In talking with a member, they have a good reciprocal program where you can play 15+ other private clubs in PA & NJ.

Sands Casino has a corporate membership and if you are a big player you can get a round comped here.

We had a pretty good lunch in the clubhouse after our round. There is a snack shack after hole 9 and there was a roving beverage cart.

The dues are pricey but there is currently no initiation fee.

Location is easy to find. Turn onto Linden Avenue off Main Street at the Sunoco and it dead ends into the club.

It was a busy Friday morning since the weather was so nice but we got done in 3 hours 50 minutes with two guys walking two guys riding.

There is a third nine called the "Hill Nine" which was part of the original 18 holes. As the name suggests, it is a very hilly, difficult course, with small greens. Also a neat course but they don't maintain it anywhere near as well as the 18 hole course.
