Short Course With. Fun Layout

While the course is on the short side, the course has a solid layout with some quirky but fun holes. If you a looking for a bomb the ball and not think course this is not for you. But if you want a courses with many unique and challenging holes this is for you.

Course conditions were superb.

Brooklyn’s little gem. A must play.

Looking at the scorecard, I wasn’t expecting much in the way of a challenge. Boy, was I wrong. This little gem tested me all round long. Greens and course are In excellent condition. Just immaculate. I was wanting another crack at it the moment we holed out on 18. If I had to choose, I’d pick the back 9 as my favorite side. Do yourself a favor and put this gem on your shortlist. I’m giving the course experience 5 stars. Shout out to the grounds crew for such perfect rolling greens and lush fairways!

Great course. Great value

This course is a diamond 8n the ruff. Great design for high handi-cappers yet challenging enough for strong players. Entire course was in great shape. The greens were perfect. Held well. Rolled true. Would be a great place for an outing when this covid stuff is over.

Course is immaculate, fun place to play

The folks maintaining the course get an A+, course was in excellent shape tee to green. I was really impressed, a great value for the money.

Course is pretty short, with a few challenging holes. The greens are what get you, not very many straight putts here and several (most?) greens slope fairly aggressively in one direction. Putting/chipping from above the pin can be harrowing.

My only complaint is lack of yardage markers, something at 100 and 150 yds would be nice.

Always Well Maintained, Tee to Green

Great course for all types of players. It's not overly difficult, with the exception of a few holes. 16, 17, and 18 are a tough stretch for anyone, but overall, the course is very fair. The price is affordable, the food is good, and it's always in great shape.
