I was lucky enough to play a round there recently and it's one of the nicest courses I've every played. Very well maintained and some real challenging holes, including a par-3 carefully guarded with sand traps and water.

If you get an opportunity to play there, don't pass it up.

Plainfield is definitely one of the nicest courses in New Jersey. It is kept in fantastic shape. It is really difficult in that you almost never get a flat lie, and you are really rewarded for knowing the pin placements and playing your shots accordingly.

Shot makers course. If your an 8 handicapp, expect to shoot 12 over. Greens run an avg. of 12 on the stimp. Bunkers have all been resodded and since the major tree removal project don't be afraid to go "BIG" off the tees. I personally recommend this course to anyone that really loves the game but it is NOT a weekend hackers course. The caddies are excellent but will shame you if your a hack and you've got to love that.

Donald Ross Original Gem

Course has maintained its original routings, greens and bunkering.
Now mostly treeless the topography is revealed for the first time since Ross came upon the site in 1916. Greens are elevated with rear dropoffs that require skinfull play around the greensites. The Par 5's are on a par with the best each different and requiring risk and reward playmaking. No 12 is recognized as the best par 5 on any Ross course.

THis course is great, about 200 yards longer from the tips also a change to the tunnel, (13, 14, 15th holes), fast greens, even when airated, also great caddies. People should play here if thay get the chance. Trust me if you pass up the opportunity you will regret it. BETTER THEN BALTUSTROL
