1 great thing about this course is that it is less than 1 mile from my house. It is fairly inexpensive but I often wonder where the $2.9M that was just invested in this course has gone. The greens are in decent shape but the fairways are far from well maintained.
Don't even think about going there on a weekend unless you plan on getting there at 1am! If I were running things over there I would make the Blue course a walk-on and have a tee time setup for the Red course.
Both are fairly challenging courses and I would not doubt that they are the most played courses in NJ.

Just moved back to the area, tried out an old course (Passaic County) that I played back in High School. Much to my suprise there has been many improvements...Great job!!! I will definitely be going back!

I started to write a review but didn't know where to begin. I'll just say that I love this game, I live in this county and when it comes to the former I am ashamed of the latter.

I've played over 2000 rounds in 14 states from the roughest plot of farmland to Pebble Beach and everything in between. My expectations about each experience are tempered with my own depth of experience. That is, I don't expect four star dining at The Olive Garden. But Olive Garden is still very satisfying in it's own way.

Metaphors aside, I found Passaic County very dissatisfying. It embodies everything that is wrong with a municipal/government run enterprise. The staff is uninterested if not surly. The course course condition is abysmal. The layout is forced and thoroughly uninteresting. The green fees at around $50 to walk for a "non-resident" are shocking as contrasted to this misused piece of precious land. Please turn this over to a private
management group, they'll pay you a yearly fee and we can have a decent local place to play! Meanwhile, I'll drive the extra 40 minutes to Play Crystal Springs.

When I play Passaic county, I prefer the Blue Course, but having said that, the Red course, with alot more water, is challenging also. I recommend it.
