Solid compact track

Conditions were above average tee to green. Had a solid layout but a couple holes do run parallel and seem similar. Course was wet when we played but same everywhere this summer. Not really any memorable holes but still a fun track. I would play again given the chance

Essex County

It's amazing how many great courses can be in one county. This is another one. Conditions were excellent.
It plays longer than it looks. The course made good use of the rolling terrain. Fairways are tight and tree lined.
Favorite hole was number #17, short par 4, with the green protected by a pond.
