Flanders Valley Golf Course has received praise as not only one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey, but also as one of the best in the U.S. Flanders offers two 18-hole championship courses, White-to-Blue and Red-to-Gold. The courses are spread across over 400 acres of Morris County's idyllic countryside. The White-to-Blue Course has a more traditional layout that sprawls across mostly flat terrain. The golf course may lack elevation changes but there are an abundance of mature trees to contend with on either side of the course, making it very tight in some spots. One of the most memorable holes is the par-4 14th, nicknamed "Top and Right." This slight dogleg left hole has a pond bordering the entire left side of the fairway.

Kinda Bummed Out

So I booked though the GolfNow app to play the Blue White course, only to find that there was a golf outing and had to play Blue to Red. Only played nine on the blue as I was walking and the whole purpose of playing the Blue White was to avoid the big hill. D- to Flanders Valley.

Clear Day

Course was in fair condition considering the storm that hit the area the day before. Only a couple swampy spots on some holes and a couple bunkers were under water. Pace of play was excellent since no one was on the course. 6a.m. Tee time and finished by 9a.m. Very happy that I didn't cancel my round.

Local gem

This course is one of my favorites. Casual golfers to serious swingers can have fun here. Fast responsive greens, challenging fairways that turn and slope.

The only time we really ran into a pace issue was on the 9th hole when a guy who couldn't find his tee shot drove back up to the tee box to hit another one. Just take a drop man we're losing daylight ffs.

Slow play and tough greens

I paid for 18 holes and left after 9. The foursome in front of us likely never played golf before and did everything they could to take their time. Ranger nowhere in sight.

Greens were aerated and in terrible shape. If I knew, I would have stayed home.

I like Flanders a lot, but this was a bad showing.

Nice early in season place to play

Not a hard course at all. I played Blue/White combo and other than 2 holes, nothing in the design is spectacular.
Tee times and starting is well organized. Although, starter didn't initially instruct me where to take my cart once my clubs were on, and obviously didn't go the right way and he got a little snippy with me. Would have been ideal for him to let me know where to take the cart once I was ready since tee time was still 20 minutes away.

Ok course

Not a bad layout. Fairways and rough were decent. Bunkers has rocks and were very firm. Tee boxes are in horrible shape
