I live on this course so may be a bit prejudiced. This is an excellent course for the area. The maintenance is very good, the scenery excellent and the overall experience is the best in Morris county. The signature 4th hole is a lot of fun and one that I never tire of.

Played yesterday. Fun round. Played early (9am) and hit from the whites. Fair course but a bit short. Would have liked some more par 5 holes. You can use your 3wood or even a rescue off the tee and be somewhere around 150 to the pin on most holes. Overall good value next time playing from the blues. getting out early seemed like a key reason for our quick round.

Played after 3P and got a good rate. Tee boxes, fairways, sand traps and greens were in fantastic shape. The rough was a bit on the high side but thats what you get for hitting it there in the first place.
The views of the surrounding mountainside are remarkable.

As stated in previous reviews; keep the ball in the fairway and you'll shoot well. There are some forced carries but as long as you can get the ball up in the air you should have no problem.

All in all, a definite must play if you're in the area.

Rangers keep the play moving. On time tee times. A little more expensive but worth it.

Tight but fair. A quick round. Well worth the couple of bucks more they charge. Plays like the bigger advertised local courses but no waiting around because of getting backed up. Setting is better than most around.

Relatively easy if you keep it in the fairway, but not a course for sprayers. You'll be bouncing around in the pines. Marshalls move the pace along - never more than 4.5 hours per round. Great for speedy players.

Nice course and fast round

This is a very well maintained course but a little expensive as mentioned in the previous review.

Each hole is different from the previous one and you will use lots of different clubs.

Its fun to play and I'd play it again...

Easy to get tee time or walk on.

A little pricey

A very good track. You will use every club in the bag. The course is about $20.00 overpriced, but you can usually get a good tee time and you can get a round in under 4 1/2 hrs. The one positive on the price, it USUALLY keeps the higher handi's at home.
