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.

I am excited to just find out that they Are open all season so crazy PUBLIC Golfers like myself have a course to go to on those “Freakishly” warm winter days. This Course truly is a “ Diamond in the Rough” .

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.

My first experience at East Orange. This very flat golf course was a fun test of golf. A nice layout with very fast, but fair greens, and great sand in the bunkers.

My only complaint is the fact the maintenance crew never stopped cutting the grass or blowing leaves as the golfer played through.

Lastly, the clubhouse restaurant was fantastic!

The food was delicious!!! Definitely stop by after your round.

Give this course another year to mature and they will have a gem. Seems they are doing all to get this course to the upper level and they are close. Golf Courses don't have to be long to be difficult. Hopefully it will continue. New Clubhouse is second to none.

This is my home course, and I've golfed it about 50 times since I started playing there 2 years ago.

The course is short and has an easy layout and conditions (rough, sand, hazards). The trees make it tight sometimes. The real difficulty is reading the greens, which are huge and complex, especially on the back nine.

The staff is wonderful, but you usually only see 2-3 employees. It's a city-run course that has a low budget and skeleton crew. Despite this, the staff is friendly and the course is in decent shape, considering the challenges of the terrain.

No marshals on this course. It's a blue-collar place, by and large, with a range of golfers, from novice to very good. A normal round on weekend takes 4-4.5 hours. 5 on a slow day.

The course is playable and in great condition. The management invested in improving the layout and course condition. Well maintained. The investment in the bunkers is commendable. The sand is quality.

There is self starting based on tee times. Not a problem. The practice facility is convenient.

My playing partners who had not played the course in 10 years were impressed with the upgrades.

East Orange always had a poor reputation but the recent renovations at least make it a course worth considering. The layout is nothing special and fairly easy if you have at least a decent skill level. I would say it's excellent for beginners, seniors and high handicappers. Not long at all and very score-able. The front nine is pretty bland but the back opens up nicely in spots.

I was most impressed with the greens. They were actually quick but rolled true and had some undulation in spots. They have a nice driving range now and the restaurant inside looked impressive.

Don't expect anything great because of how short it is, but it's probably worth a shot for most golfers in the area.

Played on Saturday for the first time. Was unaware of the serious upgrades made to the course and facilities. Very nice practice area and the course was generally in good condition. A few of the greens had some bare spots and a few of the tee boxes required a hammer to put the tee into the ground but all in all a very pleasant surprise for a local daily fee course. The club house was spectacular

Very nice course it's short but challenging. We'll maintained and enjoyable to play. The clubhouse is renovated beyond anyone's expectations. The restaurant is so nice I'm going to eat there even when I'm not playing golf. Only recommendation would be to have rangers patrolling to improve the pace of play. We started off fine but soon caught the slow groups in front of us and the pace was too slow for the course.
