I’ve played this course more than dozen times. Nothing sticks out as uniquely good or bad. Midway between NY and Philly - good place for me to play NY golf buddies. A bit pricey but bearable.

Played here Match18th, 32 degrees and windy! Course was in very nice shape for March. Fairways were fine and greens were very good and rolled true. Even bunkers were OK to hit out of. Loved the layout. We will definitely come back this summer and play it as it should be played. I bet it'll be fantastic. Staff was also very friendly.

With winter golf in NJ we manage our expectations. As long as the greens are rolling (which they were) it’s good to get out there on a nice day.

At least the traps have raked so you could fix your lies.

All in all good location with a good price.

My first time to play the course and I love it. Fairway is not that bad, though there are some muddy spots! Bunkers are a little bit sticky, because of the rain of course. Overall, I will still recommend this course. Hope to play again this spring.

Was good to play even if it was cold.

but still some snow in the bunkers and course was wet too. challenging greens but a little bit slow.

Nevertheless, that was not the best time and conditions to play. Just happy to hit some balls outside :)

50 degrees in dec we weren’t expecting much. We ended up playing a really fun, well manicured golf course. Not sure why this course is ranked so low it deserves to be in the 4 Star category immediately. The course is a Steve Smyers design. He has done some really impressive work around the country and this is def one of his best. The green complexes are extreme but somehow not unfair. There is plenty of length and from what we could see lots of fescue in the summer. Can’t wait to go back!

Playing from the back tees you get to use every club in the back. if you are a little off your game you can still score. all holes are different and each bring its own special challenge. always recommend this course.

A lot of begginners play at the course. It wasn’t enjoyable to play since we had to wait for a while to hit every shot. They should have a ranger who keep good pace of play.

The course becomes boring especially last 4 holes which include two par 3. The conditions of bunkers are pretty bad with hard sand. It denotes not worth for the money. We will not go back again.

Come on, if you are going to keep all of these sand traps at least take care of them. Too many were unkept lacked rakes and lacked sand. Greens very hard. Good shots into the greens were not rewarded
