A Closing Event

On December 17th a warm Friday afternoon, rather than go for a Holiday lunch, I went for a quick 9 at one of my favorite courses. Skyway at Lincoln Park is an oasis far from the City yet only a few miles from The Holland Tunnel. It is a place of great contrasts only steps from the jammed six lane road with The Skyway able to maybe reached by a mighty Drive. It is 9 holes which are wonderfully placed creating a beautiful place to play. The first is short par 4 that goes down to the left with a large green with great undulation. A hole to make a par The second is an uphill par 3 with a large green That Friday from thee tee, it played nearly 200 yards into a stiff breeze , a real challenge Next is the par 5, third hole, a great risk reward hole. A hole that rolls down to left from the tee. The shallow green rises on a cliff daring and challenges players to attack across the hazard. For the less adventurous you can bale left on your second and attack the shallow rolling green while remaining mindful of the dangers short and right. The fourth is a short 3 that is well bunkered and a green bisected by ridges is only a wedge away Five is a long uphill par 4 that goes forever and especially when it plays into the wind. The fairway is surrounded by high dunes on each side compelling a shot in the fairway. Six is a par 5 and represent an opportunity to score. A long drive in the fairway favoring the left side can set up an opportunity to attack the green as it plays downhill to the green. Seven is the last par 4 and a strategy hole as this dogleg left features water on the left side of the fairway to the green. The green is at the top of the plateau with water short and left. Bombers can also choose to along the right edge of the fairway set up an easier pitch to the green. Eight is the toughest par 5 with a carry of 200 yards at least over water and marsh to the fairway. From there a second shot must negotiate a water grave that determines where you should play. The green has a hazard left and a par here is a great score. In fact many days bogey came be excellent especially when into the wind. The last is a medium length par 3 with another interesting green with ridges and valleys. Conditions are always good and it plays great when firm and fast. It is always a great experience

Beautiful course and super friendly staffs!

It was my first time coming here and the green conditions were great. Overall course was a bit challenging and 9 hole didn't feel like a short 9 hole. I've been to some 9 hole courses in CT and those had too many par 3s and it felt too short. Super friendly staff memebers and this course is now one of my favorites. I do want to go again before it starts snowing!

Greens

I have never seen your greens this bad. Nobody fixes ball marks. I know it is tough to police but it’s imperative so everyone can enjoy the course.

Hold on to your hat

I’ve played the course many times and knew it was going to be windy . This course is usually windy even when there is very little wind forecasted so today with 12-15 mph I know it would be challenging and it was 1-3 three club difference and most holes are into the wind or down wind . Beautiful course and fabulous views east is the city and west Pulaski Skyway Newark Airport you will take pictures
