Par 72
Length 6765 yards
Slope 128
Rating 72.9

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.

Tricky course

The greens were in a great condition. Some of the pin placements were really tough, I saw balls rolling back after missing a cup. May want to add more sand to the bunkers. I’m ok with it as I know how the hit on thin sand but some people were frustrated. Overall, well maintained tricky course that I would be happy to go back.

Course Needs Improvement

I've been playing Flanders for many years now. Over the past 5 years or so the course has slowly slipped from a premier facility to average at best. Like to play the white to blue course. You notice on the first hole that the fairway is sunken in from past under ground work. Causes many sunken/uneven lies. Drainage needs work as well. Tee boxes, fairways and rough need work. Greens and sand traps are in great shape. Still a good place to play but investments needed in restoration of tee boxes, fairways and rough before the ratings continue to slip.

Great course with history

I had a great round of golf with one of the employee of the course on his day off. What a great guy! The course is flat for most of the holes. The greens were slow on the day i played. The greens needed cutting and the fairways need some work. Lots of dry stops on the course. Around the greens on the course on the holes away from the club house needs top soil & seed. The tee box needs work. The bunks are filled with mud!! No sand to be found in the bunkers, its mud. The layout of the course is great, the coumpany was great, but the upkeep of the course is lacking. I hope they are planning to work on the upkeep off the course in the near future.

Thanks.

Ehhh, as a county course not that impressed.

Unfortunately the day I played there the greens on the white and blue courses had just been top dressed with sand, and yet we were still charged the full greens fees for our round. There are many browned out areas of the rough on every hole. There are dirt ruts all over the course as well. And the bunkers need a lot of tender loving care. Otherwise its unfortunately a less than memorable county golf course. Too bad, enjoyed this place so much in my 20's.

Everyone was nice from cart staff, pro shop, stater & bartender. Course was in great shape. Some fairways a little brown but just fine. A little pricey for non county residents but my three friends were locals and a great value for that price.

Very Nice Public Course

I enjoyed playing the blue-white course with my father. The staff was friendly and we were even able to get out a few minutes before our tee time. The greens were aerated and sandy, which is the only thing keeping this course from a 5* rating in my book. I'm sure as the season progresses, though, that the greens will be in better condition.

Just OK

course is right in front of you nothing special no real character. The gold I hear is more hilly but that 9 is paired up with the red which i was told is also flat and straightforward. Had a fun time but plenty of other courses in the area that are better.

Pretty good for winter golf

For a winter, course was in great shape. Minimum amenities due to construction.
