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.

it's ok

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.

Great Deal

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.
