Love playing here. Wonderful course for weekend golfers and amateurs. However, there is rarely a starter and things can get hectic at the start (not enough carts, who is with who, etc.).

Overall, enjoy the course very much and well maintained.

The best about this course is that is very inexpensive and very well maintained. There are a couple of greens that aren't perfect, but you can play them perfectly. Is pretty flat but still not easy. The pace is good, you can finish 18 holes in 3 hours, however sometimes you can find a slow group in front.

This is a course that I have avoided for years despite the fact that I live about 5 minutes away, mainly because the conditions were pretty bad. Happy to report that the course is much improved - good tees, greens in really good shape, sand in the traps, fairways that no longer overgrown (but still some serious drainage issues on a few holes).

2 issues. First, I arrived for my 7:40 AM tee time at 7:05 to find a line outside the pro shop because it was not yet open. If you had an early tee time and wanted to warm up with a bucket, that was no longer an option. Pro shop needs to be open before the first tee time, not after.

As for the course itself, it is what it is - short, which is not necessarily a bad thing. If you are an average golfer, the par 4s are tee shot and a short iron as most are 350 or under. 2 of the par 5s are close to being reachable with 2 good shots, overall the course is not challenging but still fun to play.

The best part is we played in under 4 hours, the value is good, and the course is very convenient. After avoiding East Orange for years, I would go back.

This very diverse golf course is friendlier than anyone. They learned who I was by name early on that counts for a lot. The course is chellenging and the pace excellent except on rare occasions. I love the club house bar and restaurant. I want them to succeed and today seemed like they were doing just that. This is an unconventional golf course.

This was the first time I have played this course after it’s major renovation. The first obstacle my playing partner and I encountered was that our (different manufacturers) golfing GPS systems were not reporting accurate information. Hers kept saying it was on Hole 4 for many of the holes, no matter which hole we were on and mine registered different hole numbers and incorrect distances to the holes. We’re going to have to see if we need to update our systems to get the correct distances for the new layout.

The course was in good condition except for the fact that every green was very sandy. Every ball that landed on a green would be covered in sand and when they rolled there would be a band of sand on the part of the ball that touched the ground. The sandy conditions led to sandy clubs, balls, gloves, hands and towels. It did drizzle a little while we were playing so that may have made the situation worse, but we encountered this problem even before it began raining .

Hopefully these issues will be worked out and my next visit will let me recommend the course to others.

I played this course last year and vowed to never visit again. However, this year there was a good deal on golf now and I decided to try it again. Thankfully I did because it was a totally different course! The fairways were great the greens were in good shape only problem I could see was in the rough in a few spots. I would definitely come back for the reduced rate at golf now again.

Second time playing EO in two years (a Saturday and the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend respectively.) Course and range are very nice and well maintained. Both times I have played, the starter situation has been a mess. This time when our foursome tee time came up (10:50), there were no more golf carts available. This created a huge bottleneck for us and all behind us. We had to wait for people to come off of 18 to get carts. This took roughly 35 minutes. Annoying, and the folks behind us were frustrated for sure. If EO can figure out the start situation and add carts they would be good to go. This place is brand new and public so it attracts many local golfers. Why not meet the demands of the course with enough golf carts to go round?

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.

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.
