A crowded hack-a-thon

Booked a tee time in the mid afternoon for my son and I. Got to the tee box where the 2 tee times in front of us were both teeing off to create a fivesome because the course was so backed up. Could not even have fun here and shoot for the green on anything because the holes were so backed up. Ended up leaving after 6 holes after it took us 2 hours to get to that point.

Nice Little Course But Too Narrow

Pro Shop Staff were great, but course conditions were not great. Considering the grounds crew were so ever present they were in the way, the course was not in great condition. Also, this course is very narrow and the tee boxes are WAY TOO CLOSE to the previous green. People yelling "FORE" were common. FYI-some of the hills on the course are a bit steep and utilizing a motorized cart proved treacherous at times. Walking the course might be more prudent.

3.5 stars

What makes this course exciting is the mix of long and short par 4s, and the lightning quick greens. For a public course, the greens are usually second to none. Hole 4 and 8 are both easily reachable, but don’t overlook hole 4 risk reward. Tree lined on both sides, end up right off the tee and you’re in the penalty area. End up left odds are you’ll be looking at the back off a tree attempting to go over under, or for some of us, through the tree.

Overall it’s not a great course but it does have some great features and an excellent course culture. It is a solid 3.5 stars. Great place to play a quick nine or practice round.

All over the place

This course was fun, but tee boxes were right next to some greens , making it awkward at times. other players teeing off as we were just in the fairway. almost got hit by errant balls a few times.

Not a real corse... more like a park with greens. Avoid this course!

Course doesn’t have real fairways. Greens were in good condition when we played. For the money, they are MUCH better 9 hole courses out there.

Nice place to play

The course was in good shape and it played pretty quick. I did not realize that it was a 9 hole course but it was still very enjoyable. In fact, I would play it again. The play was more enjoyable as we were paired with 2 fellows who played well and made good golf chat

Mid February round on the west nine

Haven’t played this course in several years but for mid February in New Jersey, was so happy to have been there. Greens were in beautiful shape. You definitely need to be aware of people hitting on the neighboring fairways as it can be narrow in some spots.Will definitely be back again soon.

Nice 18 holes

Weather was great, the course was maintained during the pandemic. It’s the best I’ve seen this course since playing it last year.
