Montclair CC

This course needs too much work and I won't play here again. Cart paths are confusing and you have to drive a bit on the main road with regular traffic! It's OK for a practice round but that's it.

Course is rough but playable

Nice to play this course a second time and know its quirks.

Shot making a must due to blind angles, elevation extremes, short holes to set up approach shots and unjulated fairways and greens.

Course is rough due to poor up keep compounded by winter conditions but is easily playable if the player isnt a picky player needing ideal conditions.

This is a challenging short course that is harder than the card indicates and will provide an array of shots not always pulled from the bag on longer flatter courses. A nice course to work on distance control and putting.

Currently open to the public, recommend playing it before they go back to full private, if the do.

Not bad but not for me

Most of the people I saw playing didn't hit very far which is good on this course. The holes are narrow with houses close to the course. If you are comfortable playing this type of course then it is a good value. If you want open areas to land in, are uncomfortable with housing close by, then this isn't a good course for you. I have been hitting my driver well lately but only felt comfortable using it on two holes. The layout is very interesting with a few hidden dangers, long and narrow par 3s, lots of hills, and trees line most fairways. The greens were true, quick, and even straight putts moved when they shouldn't. For me it would have been a very enjoyable round if the houses were set back farther. I would recommend this course but tell the person why it is not for me, too cramped.

Charming course in bad shape at season's end

I'm a longtime fan of Montclair CC. The course has a lot of charm and character, with tons of variety and some very fun holes. It's very short by today's standards, but it requires real shot-making and control. Zipping around in under 3 hours is easy if you tee off as a single after 1:00 or 2:00. Unfortunately, the course is in pretty rough shape by the time Oct/Nov rolls around. Several greens are beaten up, and at least 10 or 12 greens were covered in leaves. I can understand the course taking a beating over an entire summer, but there's really no excuse for them failing to take charge of the dead leaf situation. Mowers, mulchers, and leaf blowers should be running constantly throughout the course; during my round on Sunday, I didn't see a single grounds crew member anywhere.

TLC

The course is short, narrow and challenging. It needs some serious TLC and updating.

This golf has maintained very poorly.

There are so many brown spots everywhere. Tee box was nothing but brown spots. Did not even blow away leaves. Fairway has a lot if brown spots. Green was one of the worst I ever seen. You also have to cross the street in order to go to next hole. I know I will never going back to this course.

Don't let the length fool you.

This course only plays around 6000 yards from the tips but don't let that make you think it isn't fun. The fairways were in good condition but they are very narrow. There are lots of blind shots from the tee boxes and on the approach shots. The areas around the greens were in rough shape. The greens are what make this course. They are extremely difficult especially if they play as fast as they did when I played. It was like putting on hardwood moguls. I really liked this place and hope the areas around the greens get better.

Local player

I live on the course and have seen it transform over the past 3 years.

The info here is incorrect or outdated relative to the fairways. They no longer have bent grass, as a major renovation took place where Bermuda was installed. The new grass is coming in great, like a carpet on most fairways. Even those that were rough, like 16, have made great strides in the past two months, as some trees were removed to assist with sunlight and to enhance growth.

The greens are also in great shape. When they had the member guest tournament they were rolling super slick, some of the fastest I've played on in the area.

The one nit that I have is the bunker systems. Many have drainage problems and need to be redone. But they have brought in some new sand and raked better the past year.

Overall this course offers great value. It's not RTJ or Belle Haven, but as a course I would put it up with Mt Vernon CC's course with the recent improvements.

Good but needs work

Played the other day and enjoyed the course. However, course does need work on a few holes. Par 3 on the front, the tee box is a mess. #16 is in horrible condition and looks like it will be a while before it will get any better. A few other places need some work, but course is a good warm up if your game needs some work
