O-VER-RATED (Clap, clap, clap, clap clap) O-VER-RATED (Clap, clap, clap, clap clap)

Sorry, not sorry. I'm a pretty critical reviewer and will give praise when it's warranted, But I'll also be honest about course faults.

I usually only play this course once a year, and each time I leave here after my round saying to myself "Never again, this is not a $135 course. Not even close." For $135, give me some GPS at least.

If the course was worth it, I'd play it often because I live relatively close and can see the potential. I can see this being a great course if it was given the proper attention and care.

Greens are always awful and filled with ball marks. For $135, put a free divot in each cart to try and encourage people to fix their marks. The greens were also aerated a month ago and have not come back yet. If they tell you over the phone that the greens have come back, they're lying. That's what happened to my playing partners. They are really bumpy.

Fairways are decent, but always soft to the point of balls plugging on some holes. They are also littered with massive divots that nobody replaces.

Bunkers are in desperate need of some attention. They are just crumbling around the edges in a lot of spots.

Tee boxes are pretty good, but appeared to not have been cut in a few days on some holes.

This is my last time playing here unless I see some great reviews next season that mention that the course has addressed the issues. Just not worth the money. I play a lot of courses in the NY, NJ, CT, and even the MA area, for half the price of Centennial, that are better maintained, and are just better golf courses to play overall. Go elsewhere and save yourself a few bucks. I know the price tag on this place may lead you to believe you're getting a certain type of product, but you're not.

Greens a disaster - no money into course

Bones of course are still there but combo of greens littered with ball marks and under investment in club makes this a rip-off at $142/$135. Pace of play is crushed as you have to fix 4-6 ball marks for every putt. Multiple cart paths and stairs are destroyed, making for hazards going hole to hole. The course has also removed or left abandoned water coolers, which was brutal on a 90 degree day. If you live local and can regularly use the driving range, great, otherwise seek other options.

Rushed us along

We played here for a second time yesterday. After the second hole which we played in 7 minutes, someone drove up to us and asked us to keep pace with the group in front. We were puzzled and said okey. Now we are starting to rush and it totally threw off the day. They kept coming around and saying the same thing until I finally addressed it. We kept catching the people in front of us and the guys behind us were hitting into us! Overall everyone was disappointed with the w course..

They need to have a sensitivity and awareness training so people are more kind and knowledgeable on how to handle these situations.

I would never ever recommend this course to anyone again.

Soggy/Cart Path Only

Cold Soggy Day, cart path only slowed things up a bit, but for late nov, it is what it is. Had a number of shots plug in the rough, must have gotten a lottt of rain.

Greens were in immaculate condition and quite fast.

This was my 4th round of the year there.

Not worth ~$100 for a November 40 degree round.

Hard, hard ....hard course!!!

27 of the hardest holes in the tri-state area. I never really score great here. Love playing it because of the beauty of the course. I finally decided to play from the white tees which at 61 years old and avg drives of 250 plays short for me and still had to grind to post a decent score.. Play it and enjoy the scenery. Worth it!
