I've played here before. Its a nice walking course (a few small hills). Problem today was the week of rain we had before. One day is not enough to dry out. A lot of mud and casual water. Not the courses fault but always wait a couple of days after a good soaking.

Gentleman behind the counter that checked us in was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Had never played this course, had been told by friends in the past that course needed work. My friends need to revisit this course. You can see that a lot of money and effort has been been put into this course. It is absolutely beautiful. Course is well maintained, greens are in great shape. The only thing I would improve on is the maintenance of cart paths, need to fill mud holes with stone or gravel. Day before I played had rained, carts were pretty well covered with mud. Hopefully these items will be addressed. Can't wait to play again..

It’s not 6100 yards or a rating of 79 as it says on the GN course details. It is about 5680 and the rating on the card is 67. Greens are extremely firm. I landed a 9i one yard short of the green and it rolled off the back. But strangely they weren’t rolling fast. They were just so firm they it was all but impossible to hold a green.

Groups were cutting in front of other groups. Interesting little course but not what we expected from the ratings and numbers provided by GN.

Reviewed on

It was a 90deg morning, hot and no breeze. Clubhouse is complete. Nice looking outside bar and seating area.

However... POOR amenities, even possibly dangerous for older players.

There was NO WATER OR SNACKS anywhere.

Despite a large prominent sign in the parking lot warning that outside food and beverages are FORBIDDEN.

What gives?

By the turn, I was out of water, getting dehydrated, fatigued. Looked for water inside by the pro shop, WATER BOTTLE WAS EMPTY by the register. Couldn't get water there.

The snack shop was CLOSED. NO WATER STATIONS ANYWHERE ON THE COURSE. Could not refill bottle anywhere.

WARNING: IF IT'S HOT, BRING 3-4 BOTTLES OF WATER AND FOOD, PAY NO ATTENTION TO OUTSIDE FOOD FORBIDDEN SIGN, OR YOU MAY GET HEAT STROKE.

Also, BEVERAGE CARTS were parked by the clubhouse, empty.

No staff.

I think the staff have NO idea what golfers need.

IS THIS NORMAL FOR A THURSDAY?!

As far as the course goes, it's fie for $25/ round, but not $45. They have water drainage issue. Spots in fairways and rough is like small swamps, wet, soft, muddy. Green average speed. Some burned out greens (despite it being May 3, and you'd think they wouldn't be that bad so early in the year).

Will skip this next time I'm thinking of playing here. I always give it one chance each year.

The place isn't ready for prime time.

I decided to play this course after seeing its offer on a Hot Deal. For the price, this course was great. It is a shorter course, and a par 70, but I had a nice time playing here. The course was in solid condition, and I was pleasantly surprised how well the greens were rolling (save a few mangled ones) for this early in the season. There doesn't seem to be a starter or rangers at this course so I can see rate of play being an issue on crowded days, however I was able to complete my round in just under 4 hours.

Weather was bad so course was mostly empty. Lots of wide open fairways, great for beginners. Nothing was open for a quick snack. Some greens in rough shape. Well worth it at the hot deal price, would play again at that rate.

I’ll give it to them that it was the first real warm day of the season. But the rate of play was painfully slow. There was a single, then a foursome, then a pair ahead of us... we waited on every single hole. I have never said this... but I wish they had a ranger!

Favorite course to play in Jersey. Course conditions are always up to expectations. Pace of play can be terrible during the summer, however was not a problem the last time. Slightly prefer the back over the front. The 19th hole should be in Manhattan. Overpriced and under portioned.

For a sunny and windy November day it wasn't bad playing the round. The only thing I would say is they could do a better job of blowing the leaves off the course. With the sun and the leaves on the course at times it was challenging locating the ball. Other than that I enjoyed the round.
