Length 6770 yards
Slope 129
Rating 72.6

Flanders Valley Golf Course boasts two championship courses that sprawl across the rolling countryside of Morris County. The facility is considered one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey and has even been ranked as one of the top 75 public courses in the country. The Red-to-Gold Course has a hillier terrain than the other course, White-to-Blue, which has a more traditional design. It is the more challenging of the two courses with mature trees scattered throughout and uneven lies provided by the elevation changes, which also offer scenic views of the idyllic surroundings. The Red-to-Gold's seventh hole is the most difficult of all the 36 holes at Flanders. This tricky par 4 has trees flanking both sides and it is also subject to the prevailing winds.

Flanders 1/14/21

Good condition for the winter. Very challenging and a hard walk with all the slope changes. Paid $20 to play 14 holes, not too shabby

Played in early December, frost delay but the staff was very accommodating getting us off as soon as they could. Sweet design, easy walk, greens were recently aerated but fairways were in good shape. Definitely will put this course in my rotation.

Horrific pace

Course had jr tournament right smack in the mid day that everyone behind them just gave up and turned around. It took one hour and 10 min to play 2 holes!!!! Starters should have warned us before letting us out. It was ridiculous. Very poor management!

November Golf

Course was in Great condition considering all the rain we had for 2 days prior. Fairways and greens were clear of leaves. Greens were slow speed due to all the rain. I was able to stay out of the bunkers but they were average condition. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pace of play was good too.
First time playing here and can't wait to play in the warmer months.

Overall, I was very happy playing today.

Billy Casper sold the course.

Sad they refuse to maintain it. Rough is 10". Easily list balls in the FAIRWAY because the won't cut the grass..Sand is nonexistent in the traps.
