Overall this was a very pleasant golfing experience. As stated before, the greens are inconsistent and the fairways need better tending to. There is no getting around the downsides. The greens are mostly flat yet slope down from the mountain side of the course (sometimes severely so). The challenge of this course is the dramatic change in height from pin to green and vice versa. This brings difficult lies approaching the greens on most holes (if you've got a 60 degree wedge, you will be using it a lot). The fairways are pretty narrow, especially on the front nine, but you should be able to recover on most holes (not on the first hole though. You'll see.)

The scenery though is breathtaking and the staff couldn't have been more gracious. The beercart has a cell phone and the drinks will come to you anytime. The clubhouse is not much to look at, but the food is good and the pro shop has all the amenities.

All in all, it was a challenging course and a great value for the price.

This course is mediocre at best. However, you get what you pay for. The greens are very inconsistent hole to hole and it's difficult to negotiate the bumps and ball marks. The fairways have barely any roll because it appears they don't have a fairway mower. The tee boxes are not great either. A few holes tend to play the same in terms of the way the greens are set up. You wind up shooting up 25 to 30 feet to a raised green that isn't easy to hold. The views however are this courses saving grace. You can easily see the deleware water gap and far into PA on a clear day. I'm not sure which level of golfer I would recommend this course to (if any). It seems difficult for a beginner because of the blind shots to the greens and awkward lies but can also be challenging to an intermediate based on the conditions its kept in. Overall, you get what you pay for but there are alot of nicer courses in the area that are a few $$ more and kept in much better condition. I will probably be back again, but i'm not in any hurry.

Have played here at least a dozen times. This course is what it is. A high value play w/o the strain on the wallet.

First, the good things. The scenery here is captivating in both the spring and fall. In the Spring Apple blossoms are everywhere and the view of the Delaware water gap is absolutely incredible on a clear day. Likewise during the fall with the change in colors, apples (yes you can pick them to eat) and wildlife.

Now for the bad. . . Unfortunately, the course is in need of some TLC. The greens are very difficult to hold as most of the greens slope down from center. There really is no difference between fairway and rough (but for me I guess that can be a good thing). Also note the only sand trap on the course is on the back end of the green on the par 3 18th hole.

All in all, it's not a country club course but I'm giving this course a overall 4 star rating purely for the value.

Enjoy

Well,

The other comments are true, but I pose the question, where else can you go in this area and play a round of golf for 20 bucks? You can't. It's only a very mediocre layout, the conditions are okay. There's no sand, but there is plenty of water.

Basically, this course was built by a farmer who created the layout himself. So, it's not a fazio design. The greens are challenging and, as stated by theprof, can be unfair -- word of advice, shoot 5 yards short if you can. Pace of play can suck.

Good deal though and the restaurant is pretty good, and affordable. A very weird place really when you think about it, but not necessarily in a bad way.

This is a love it or hate it course. Good value for the price. Great scenery in the fall.

The course overall is very tight. I would recommend when driving the cart, one has the plexiglass up at all times to avoid being hit from the opposing holes. Some of the boxes are so close together, especially holes 3, 6 and 8, it feels like a group of twelve hitting all at the same time.

Some of the back half of the holes such as 3, 6, 12 and 16 are very similar in the end game. My father and I would comment that playing the approach shots on these holes were a bit déjà vu.

Almost every green is up on a 4-9 foot mound and have nasty angles and slopes making it very tricky and challenging, miss the putt on a down hill lie and you can expect it to roll right off.

17th hole is the longest with 642 at a par 5. Probably should be a par 6. It is very tight and narrow with a deep slope and hard dog leg left. Slice it and kiss the ball good bye.

No sand but loads of mini water hazards.

Overall, a lackluster course with some challenging holes, but for the price of the cart on a Sunday mid day you cannot go wrong.

I am not quite sure how a NJ golf magazine recommended this course. I'd rather pay my neighbor 20 bucks to chip on his lawn than play here. I do not shoot in the 80's (never have) but I've never seen a course so unchallenging as this one. The fairways and rough are all mowed the same height and every green is basically and elevated mound of dirt that I felt like I was playing the same hole the entire time. As expected, there were a few "golfers" with jeans and cut off sleeve tee shirts on. As for the tee boxes........now those were funny

Cannot beat the price in Northern NJ. The grass isn't great but again, for the price I won't complain!

Not a bad course at all.. If you enjoy playing mountain golf you will like it here.. Personally i do not think it is that hard to hold the greens like others do, just hit it high.. Play from the blues and hole #17 will be a par 6 for you.. Cant beat the price anywhere..

I played this course once, and will never come back. Played in the rain, and on some greens you can hit your high 90 yard wedge shot to the center of the green only to see it roll right off the green....really unfair.

Pace of play can be horrible....lots of hackers play this course. Tee boxes need work. Tee box placements, coupled with these hackers can be downright dangerous....so, be ready to duck. The Rookies who play here have no problem picking up your ball that you hit dead center in the middle of your fairway.

Consider Delaware Water Gap as an alternative to this place....same type of course, and better conditions.

I was going to wait until playing this course a second time before judging it, but my son is not too crazy about going back anytime soon, so here I am. Our experience here was just OK. The course was in pretty decent shape, there are some very scenic holes and it's a good value. However, there were no course attendants and three or four groups backed up terribly behind a group of six. (Looked like members of a golf team, but still no excuse.) As novice golfers, we also tend to spray our shots which is problematic on this course because the fairways are very close together. Very claustrophobic feel to it...you really have to keep your eyes and ears open for errant golf shots. After nearly 5 hours we abandoned after 17 holes. Overall the experience was just OK, but it could be we just hit them on a bad day. We'll give it another shot at some point...just won't rush to do so.
