Unfortunate

All the tee boxes are "under repair" , the temporary locations are pretty pathetic. This is winter golf in the north east. Someone should have noted this earlier, you don't find this out until you get to the starter.

TEE BOXES ARE A MESS

Grounds crew (if they have one ?) Should be fired. Understand course gets a lot of play but so do a lot of other courses in NJ and they are fine. Not kidding Grounds crew should be fired

It's seen better days

If properly maintained the course is well designed and fun to play, but the management has let the course deteriorate to the point it's not only not fun but downright unplayable. Greens were ok, still recovering from aeration but tee boxes and fairways look more like grazing areas than golf courses. I got a golf now hot deal and used a promotion so at least it want so expensive, the rack rate with cart(and the carts are in horrible condition) is just not worth it. I won't be be back this year, hopefully next year will be better, too many other places to play for better conditions and value.

Very poor conditions at this course

All the Tee boxes were in terrible condition no grass at all in almost everyone, when teeing up the ball on the one's that had grass, the grass is so high that it's above the ball. you hit grass before the ball!!!
The fairways were so- so but the first cut was too high, had a lot of trouble finding the ball.
The greens were aerated and nobody say a word that the were being aerated.
Pace of play was very slow. constant waiting on almost every hole.
Overall a terrible experience.

No mention of Greens just plugged!

Had I known that the greens were recently aerated I would’ve found another place to play

Great local muni

Have been playing course 30+ years, in great condition especially greens, tee boxes need work cart paths needs to be entirely replaced unless you like getting a very rough and tumble ride. Carts are getting a tad beat up and need replacing. For the hot deal price including cart excellent value, full rack rate is too high. Played in 4 hours with cart and pace of play was very good but only because of the golfers themselves, no rangers in sight.
