Flanders Valley Golf Course has received praise as not only one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey, but also as one of the best in the U.S. Flanders offers two 18-hole championship courses, White-to-Blue and Red-to-Gold. The courses are spread across over 400 acres of Morris County's idyllic countryside. The White-to-Blue Course has a more traditional layout that sprawls across mostly flat terrain. The golf course may lack elevation changes but there are an abundance of mature trees to contend with on either side of the course, making it very tight in some spots. One of the most memorable holes is the par-4 14th, nicknamed "Top and Right." This slight dogleg left hole has a pond bordering the entire left side of the fairway.

Aug 3rd @ Flanders

Typical busy day for Flanders Blue-White. Cart paths only dye to Sunday AM rain.
Pace was dreadfully slow due to CPO and 3 young kids playing Blue Tees who could easily have played from the Reds. After watching too many of their poor shots drift right or left I caught up to a Senior I knew who was playing in their group. I mentioned how painful it must have been for him to be paired with them and he agreed.
No Rangers in sight to move them along
Course was in decent shape for all of the rain

Solid Setup, Would Return

Everything about flanders was reasonable except the lack of a range. Greens were smooth but not overly fast and none of the pins were placed particularly undesirable. Pace of play was a little on the slow side but understandable given it was a Saturday afternoon at 1130 when I played. Fairways were taken care of and you can clip the ball nice from it. Id go back. Good value for the money.

Wet Monday in July

Played Gold/Red course today. With over
3 &1/2 inches of rain since Friday, the course was playable but cart paths only.
That wasn't a problem.
The greens were hairy long cause they weren't cut, but were sprayed in the early AM.
Some small puddles but overall great for such a wet period in the past 3 days.
Much pruning along the cart paths is sorely needed which forces you to get off of the paths and onto the surrounding turf.
All in all a find round of golf

Typical County Course Conditions

Greens were in good shape. Rough is mostly burnt out. Fairways are alright. Staff was great and taking provisions for social distancing. It’s a good value for twilight. Conditions used to be great years ago.

Target golf

Played Gold/Red from white tees. Holes not too long. Requires precision more than power. Front 9 more hilly than flatter back 9. Had a great time. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Paired with 3 locals who were very nice. Some par 4 tee boxes chewed up from irons. Pace a little slow because of holiday. Greens medium speed and in good shape.
