This is my base

First time here, I was very satisfied. I was looking for "base" golf course since I moved in NJ. I think this course would be my base course not as long as I'd find better course

Long Wait

When I got to the course, found out that only 10 holes were playable so we were allowed to play 2x. However, the course took tee times past 11:30am causing much back up as the players came off the 10th hold (actually 18th hold since 1 - 5 & 14 - 18 holes were open). As we came off the 10th hole, there were about 10 groups ahead of us with more players came with their booked tee times. Our 4-some all decided to leave. I only stayed to go to the range. Terrible golf course management.

Great Winter Golf

Really nice conditions for Dec 28th. Even the fact that all holes were temporary didn’t matter too much. Good pace, got 18 holes in starting at 1pm. Will play again!

Great conditions for mid November

The course was in great shape for November. No mud, not a ton of leaves. It was in the 30s and 15 mph winds but sunny, so felt fine with proper layering. But the cold temps keep away the fair weather players, so a good time to play.

Getting Better

This course has gotten a whole lot better the past 3yrs. new tee boxes was the first addition then new cart paths, then a different course attendant who has made sure this no longer looks like a part but like a golf course. fairways are easily seen, greens are cut and rolled nicely throughout the year. and last they have cleared away brush that needed to be removed and also cut some trees that werent needed. Pace of play is always going to be a bit longer than normal courses as its the only 2 courses in Passaic county. but if done in under 4 1/2 hrs then very fun to play

Fall Golf!

Decent lay out and good condition for time of year. However tee boxes can improve.
Needs rangers on course to speed up pace of play.
Clubhouse could be better.
Nice small halfway house
Decent practice facilities

Well Played

This is a non-challenging course at first glance but a nice assortment of well placed trees, fescue, streams and some tight greens make it a nice course to use al your clubs on.
For a late October date this course was in great shape .

Frost Delay

2hr frost delay caused chaos for starters. Starter on East course lost track of tee time order and groups were sent out based on who's names he recognized first and everyone else to the back of the line. Course needs to manage starting time better knowing frost in October is likely. Wont be returning to this course.

Horrible pace of play, rude management staff

I had a 2:48pm tee time - I know this is a twilight tee time and I chose this to spend half the price ($70) vs. booking a 2:20pm tee time and spending double the price and thank goodness we did. We ended up teeing off at 3:35pm.... There was NO ranger out to push the pace of play - the course overbooked. We called the office to ask about a ranger and the manager, Nick, was extremely rude and said it’s not his fault that they had an incident at Preakness West and therefore could not do anything. He also told me I should know about Twilight golf and it’s not his problem. The website also said the carts should be in by 6:45 but a staff person came to ask for carts at 6:30pm. The foursomes ahead of us who ended up paying double were so angry as well and when we all went to the pro shop to complain, Nick had already left to go home. Go figure and how convenient. A complete joke and would never go back here - management needs to learn how to talk to frustrated golfers - not just me but there were 16 of us upset. Play at your own risk.

Terrible Pace of Play

Cart golfers got mixed in with walking only rounds. It created a complete mess of a backup. We had to skip a few holes just to get ahead of the walkers. Don’t schedule a walking only round in front of a cart round, how would that make any sense?
