Great looking course

Some of the views were extremely beautiful! The course winds through the community, which was also beautiful. Not a walking course!

Like nowhere else

The layout here is amazing. I personally hate uphill holes so was wary of this course but 1. There are way more downhill holes than uphill and 2. The views and conditions make it worthwhile. A few tee boxes and fairways with rougher areas but hardly enough to detract from the environment. At times it feels more like a great walk (and ride, lots of time in the cart) in the woods than a great round. Hole 16 is worth the price of admission but I’d be hard-pressed to come up with a better use of $43 than this course.

Challenging but fun!

This is the 3rd time we have played here and we've enjoyed it each time.
it is a very tough course with some blind holes and a lot --a lot of shots over thick scrub/brush,etc. You really have to plan your shots and that is what i like about this course.
You cannot walk this course; it is laid out through a community and you must drive. This adds to the pace of play but it is such a nice course i didn't mind.
I strongly recommend this course -- so much so that we drove in from the other side of NJ to play.

Interesting and scenic

I liked the design and character of nearly all of the holes, but the conditions were below average, and the distance between holes is annoying. We missed a few turns and got confused on the route, but we didn’t have any delays until near the end. 18 is a disappointing finishing hole.

Nice course for the money

Had an 8:30 AM tee time on a Monday. Very nice course, but it is very spread out. Kevin in the shop told me the course is about 13 miles from start to finish. Very nice morning round. Paid for 9 holes and Kevin was nice enough to offer me the option to play 10 for free since it was on the way back to the clubhouse. Will definitely be back.

Good course

If you don't hit your driver straight leave it home. 3 wood all day. Challenging par 3's as well. Awesome layout...not just up and back like many courses. Elevation changes and tightness of the fairways make this a challenging course. Conditions are very good, but greens are slow. Very enjoyable round. Prepare to ride the winding cart path.

What a Joke!

Three of us showed up for our tee time 45 minutes in advance. 15 minutes before our tee, we go inside to pay and we’re told that our tee time was going to be pushed back 15-20 minutes due to A LACK OF AVAILABLE CARTS!

Since we were only three, we were paired with a fourth player (makes sense), but they forced myself and this random fourth to DRIVE IN THE SAME CART. Regardless of how you feel about the pandemic, they should not be able to do that!

Our tee time was pushed from 2:10 to 2:50. Considering there is a 2-5 minute drive IN BETWEEN some holes, this round of golf took us six hours!

Unreal! Don’t bother! Not even close to worth the price!

Great Place

Although the course is starting to show some wear from the season, it is a great place to play and it in very good shape.. You can't beat the price either! We travel from NJ to play, it that good!

Cart paths

Riding to the next hole thru the woods was a great way to cool off between holes.
