Challenging course! Great Value (with a later start time)

This was my second time playing this course and similar to the first time it was very challenging. Compared to other courses I've added 10 strokes both when playing Darlington.

The only complaint I had was they brought us in early at 4:15 PM and that we had to have carts back by 4:30 PM. We could have completed another two or three holes had we've been able to play until 5:00 PM.

The starter was quite friendly and the putting area was convenient to the first hole. No chipping allowed by the putting green so keep that in mind.

As for the course layout there are several blind holes so make sure to do your research before you scheduled to play here.

Booking it with golfnow.com was a huge savings as I only paid $27 with cart however we only got in 14 holes.

So the question is would I play at Darlington again? For $27 I would for sure. Next time I would probably walk to get an extra couple holes and get more exercise.

Great round

7:10 tee time with just 2 of us and group ahead (3) moving quickly. Round completed in 3 hours. Course is in great shape. Haven’t played there in 5+ years and commend the staff for keeping in good condition.

Solid Course, in good shape at the end of the year

The county is doing a very good job with this course. Usually by the end of the year the courses naturally show some wear but Darlington is in really nice shape. Greens are in good shape, overall very good.

Some very easy holes and some very challenging holes, so a good mix.

Great Course-staff is iffy

Very solid golf course, especially from the tips. Greens are beautiful especially for a county course. I played all over NJ and these greens are better than most...rest of course in good shape as well. Staff is not very friendly but hey, its a county track, what do you expect

Great Layout, Unorganized Starters

I've played Darlington twice now and I'm really impressed by the layout and the course conditions. For a municipal course, this was in really solid shape. The layout was unique with a cool mix of mountains and water to work around on the course. If you have a county card the price is great.

My only issue was with the organization of the staff/starters. The other day I decided to ride instead of walk and I payed $15 for a cart. However, when I walked out of the clubhouse to the first tee, I was informed that they were out of carts. Not a big deal, but then they kind of suggested that it was my fault for not showing up early enough for the cart, rather than their fault for selling me a cart that they didn't have. One starter suggested that I tee off and walk, and then offered to drive a cart out to me when a cart became available (which would have been great), but then the other starter/ranger then quickly shut down that idea and said something like "no way we are going to drive a cart out to you, are you kidding me?" so I found that to be a bit rude. I ended up having to walk all 18 holes, but I did get a refund for the cart fee.

Overall, a great course but they seemed a bit disorganized for sure.
