Very Slow Goat Patch

Wasn't expecting much. Got even less. The pace was dreadful, they pace their tee times 10 minutes apart. One of the holes is swarming with cicada killers. Not a few, a swarm that actually becomes a hazard. When we asked the ranger to speed it up he said in a nice way that we'd just have to be patient. There were 2 groups waiting on that tee. Don't play here.

If you can look pass the conditions

I have played this course 4 times in the last 12 months because I like to walk 9 holes at a reasonable price. I have always focused on how poorly maintained this course is until my last round . I understand the water problem with what used to be the seventh and eighth holes I guess but that still leaves the rest of the course witches really has some very nice golf holes . Holes 3,4,5,6,7, and 9 are really very good holes . Bergen county should be embarrassed By what they let happen to this course. I don’t know how a towns like Paramus can maintain a golf course and bergen county can not .GET IT TOGETHER BERGEN COUNTY GOLF

Water traps every where!

The course has one or two legit lakes/rivers proper water traps. The fareways are just covered with water and puddles and mud from poor maintenance basically making the course unplayable. Not even worth the $15 which is a cheap round of golf in Bergen county. Oh, and mowers, septic pumpers, and fareway maintenance actively occurring on a Friday at 10am. Laughable.

Wet weather
Walked

Poor course condition

It was a wet whether so I understand that many puddles were spotted. But it was challenge to hit a ball surrounding many puddles. The terrible part was the way to 8th hole. It was hard to spot it and also a long way walk. 8th hole's condition was the worst.

Great course for a beginner

Came here with 2 new golfers to introduce them to the game. It was an excellent course for an introduction. Lots of bare areas on the tee boxes with poor directional traffic for new golfers directing them to the next hole. Layout is not terrible and has greater potential if they want to make the course better. Hole # 8 seems to be excruciatingly laid out, it sits near what looks like a swamp land with standing water in which you can smell the stagnate water. Hope they care for the traps, tee boxes, and rid the course of all the geese which drop tons of pop on the green on one of the holes I can't recall which one.

For $12 it’s hard to complain..but

I would not recommend playing this course if it has rained in the past week. 50% of the course is virtually unplayable due to lack of drainage with Hole 8 being pretty shocking. After walking through 200 yards of marshland to get from 7 to 8 the tee box is basically in a swamp.

Additionally, I brought my girlfriend along so she could walk and hang out seeing as I was solo and was told “no spectators are allowed because it’s too dangerous” I explained she has no intention of playing and just wanted to get some steps in. The pro told me I had to rent her a bag and pay green fees if she wanted to walk alongside. So $17 later, spectators were suddenly allowed. As long as they carry an empty bag.

Great value

The Blue 9 is amazing for what it is. But you have to know what you're getting yourself into. Here's the deal:

The course is for beginners. There are tons of beginners here and the pace is slow. I take my wife here and there are a lot of other beginners so she doesn't feel too intimidated. The starters and staff are all very friendly. The pro shop is well stocked and there's a small dinette.

It's very cheap to play there. The course conditions are mediocre and the greens are slow and sometimes bumpy. But they are commensurate with the price and for beginners it doesn't really matter too much. You get what you pay for and as long as your expectations are reasonable it's fine.

I wouldn't come here with my guy friends who play golf frequently--there are a lot of other courses nearby foe that. This golf course serves a specific purpose. For what it is and for the price, the Blue 9 absolutely cannot be beat. I would highly recommend it for beginner golfers.
