Flanders Valley Golf Club - Red/Gold Course
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.

Good solid course - wet conditions
I have played Flanders many times over a few decades. A solid facility. Decent prices.
Played in mid July after a few days of rain so the course was pretty wet and greens were slow. But it was a good challenge still.
We played the gold/red - it is a tough walk on the gold especially but it is doable. The facilities are comfortable, the snack shack is nice and the young lady working it was very good and pleasant.
I will return
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.
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.
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.
Great value and in good shape
Played blue/white... and had great time. Greens faster on course than practice green. Will be back.
