Not worth the money. There are much nicer courses all over NJ for much less money. Course was okay. Greens were nice but fairways were rough. Not sure why, but the rangers ushered out two people to join a group of beginners in front of my two some on the 13th hole and ground our pace of play to almost a halt.

An absolutely awful golf course to play. Tee times aren't respected, tee boxes are half-mud half grass, greens have mini divots, pace of play is frustrating. What a dump !!!

This place was an utter disaster....this was the first time i played this course and i kept asking myself, "How the hell did this place get a golf digest "places to play" award for 08/09"?!?!? And if it DID deserve that award for that year, how the h3ll did it deteriorate so rapidly?!?!? This course was actually SO bad that there was not ONE, NOT A SINGLE GREEN that was playable. The greens weren't playable because they were MUD basically. I've played greens that were freshly aerated, and even those were more playable than this abortion.
Value: This place charged me $80 to play on a saturday morning?!?! WTF!!!! At least tell me upfront that the course is a disaster!?!?!
Pace of Play: The only reason we had a good pace of play was because of our 8:50 am tee time
Maintenance: Seriously?!?! What maintenance? I could have done a better job with my home lawnmower, a shovel, some manure and a pack of Marlboros. OH, and one of the d0ucheb@g greens-keepers decided to follow us between holes 12-16 with a giant industrial leaf-blower and run it as we are hitting. What a joke! If you like putting on grass-less greens then be my guest.....but they are called "greens" for a reason no?
Hospitality: The idiot in the pro shop, was flustered by just adding numbers on a cash register?!?!? Seriously, with no one else in the pro shop it takes you 15 mins to get me and my pal our tickets?!?! Either he was on the phone, or trying (unsuccessfully) to use a cash register, but he couldn't do both.
Scenery: Honestly, i dont know what all the hype was about? This course is actually not at all special. Actually, its downright pitiful!
If youre thinking of playing here, do yourself a favor, and just dont.
