Amazing day for Jan golf in NJ

Booked on GolfNow for 30 bucks on a Saturday, incl cart. Weather was amazingly nice, mid 60s, even some sun. Check-in was a bit chaotic, but nothing too annoying. I ended up walking, just because the weather was so nice. The course was in really good shape for January in the northeast, despite all the rain in recent weeks. Good job, greenkeeper. Would absolutely play again.

Excellent value for county residents with card

Fun course, not too challenging while not too easy. Of the three Essex County clubs, this is the best, in my opinion. Very well-maintained for a public course.

The staff inside the clubhouse are very friendly and nice, but my only complaint is one of the starters (in the morning), who I would describe as grumpy, at best. He gave sarcastic answers to my "good morning" and basic questions and acted like he was doing me a favor. I was pair with a female player, whom I didn't know, and before we teed off he warned her that if she held up the group behind us he would tell them to play through. Thing is, she ended up being a very competent golfer, perhaps even better than the guys behind us.

No maintenance of course... greens were saturated.

We had to put about 3x the swing power on the greens because they were saturated and they charge $68 for a course that is mainly under repair, cart path only, and a muddy mess. Then get a ranger saying we need to pick up the pace. How about hitting the greens with a blower!?! Save your money and spend less on more maintained courses. Played here twice and both times it was terrible.

The pace of play was great

This was my 2nd time playing here. The pace of play (little over 4 hours) was much better than what the most reviews said. I came in 30 min earlier than booked tee time & the staff allowed me to join another 2 players so that I could complete the round earlier. Lots of fun playing with them. . Definitely I will come to play this course again soon.

Weekday gem.

If you’re looking to get some weekday golf in before for a big weekend I would highly recommend this course. Weekday pace of play is excellent., with no long walks to your next T.. I walked while two others drove and never held them up. Easy to keep the ball in play. COLLEGE aged players 11$ Monday to Thursday 2pm close with ID!!!
Downside: some fairways don’t drain well but that’s due to location of course not upkeep.

Nice course for locals

Fun course with a good mix of par-3s and a couple of par-5s. There's even a reachable par-4 on the back nine. Of the three Essex County courses, I would rate this the best for players of average skill. in Many of the par-4s are reachable regulation, setting up multiple birdie opportunities.
I've noticed other reviews who thought the staff was rude, but the woman who checked me in was very pleasant and helpful. Will be returning to this course often this summer.
