I've been playing Darlington for at least 40 years. I've never seen it in worse condition. It's difficult to discern the tee boxes from the uncut rough. There are weeds in some of the tee boxes that are 8 inches tall. The tees were burned out by anti-grub application earlier in the season; they haven't recovered. The fairways and rough are uncut. The course is like having a neighbor who doesn't weed, trim or cut his lawn in a timely fashion. It breaks my heart because a couple of years ago the course was in good shape. Unfortunately, all of the County courses are in bad shape. I'm not sure where the maintenance budget is going. I would strongly recommend a different course in a different county.
Tee ground, fairways, beat up, bunkers...have no sand,.all are in bad shape.
This course hasn’t been this bad in many years..needs a lot of work. Greens are decent, but slow

Nice Course Overall, lots of ball marks though
Course is in really good shape and a pretty fun layout, pretty easy to score. If you are a pretty long hitter most/all of the par 5's are reachable which is always fun.
Only complaint is there are a ton of ball marks on many of the greens. You expect this at the county courses though but would love some more warning signs out there.

Cart path only
It was cart path only for the entire 18 holes. Seriously, I had my 5 month pregnant wife and 65 year old father-in-law with me. It was terrible. 80° walking all over this hilly course. The fairways would have been fine for carts in my opinion. I was not happy. This also brought the rate of play to a stand still. By the 13th hole we left. If the carts were able to be used on fairways it would have been fine otherwise. The one golf ranger for this course was an absolute jam. He got my spirits lifted by being genuinely nice. Super great guy. Unfortunately I didn't catch his name.

First Time Here
It’s a very enjoyable course to play. It’s long enough to be challenging. The greens are big and are moderately fast. The course is tree lined and very picturesque. Since I played late in the season I can’t comment on the kitchen.
Needs a bunch of TLC
Moderately difficult but not a great design. If you're walking, it's tough. Conditions are best in the Spring, as the course gets lots of play, and many of the fairways need additional drainage as standing water rots everything up. The bunkers are horrible. They need to be redone. Bergen is the largest tax revenue county in NJ and the county puts no money into the course. And Darlington is the BEST of the five Bergen Muni's.
First time played here. Staff not friendly. Doing me a favor to take my money. Will not return
Good for a muni
Fairway and greens pretty well kept. Bounce off the fairway into the rough and finding your ball can be tough. No real on course amenities like water stations or bathrooms. Course is challenging but still fun for an advanced beginner.
Like the layout but my 3 stars is based mostly on green conditions. Rolls less true than most other Bergen county muni courses in my opinion. Other thing is pace of play can be slow but that's typical of all bergen county muni courses.
Darlington, Mahwah, NJ
I used to play this course many times in past years but have not been able to for quite a while. My return trip was great. Course is challenging as always and was in good shape, especially considering it's a public course and can have some heavy traffic. The greens were in perfect condition. Cut short and smooth. Kudos to the staff for keeping them in such great shape and a thumbs up to the golfers who obviously did their part in keeping the greens in such great shape by fixing ball marks.
Was a great day for golf and the course was in good condition. The greens were a little slow, but other than that it was a good day.
