Nice, Convenient and a Fair Price

First time playing this Ocean County (NJ) course. If you "spray the ball" all over the place you had better bring some extra balls. Our foursome had a good time, lost two balls (to the woods) and moved on. I am not one to invite poison ivy and deer ticks to retrieve a ball! You had to concentrate to make sure you kept the ball in play. It was an nice place to practice the skills you need on more difficult courses. W had a relaxing and enjoyable round and all vowed we "will return"!

Challenging course.

Narrow fairways, really no room for error
Greens also are very challenging. Great golf course for a beginner ( lot of par 3 holes ) but also very challenging. I’m a beginner still , had a hard time teeing off dirt but hitting off a tee is something I have to work on. Wonderful time, beautiful course. I will be back soon to hopefully shoot a lower score. Lol.
