Fun January Golf

Weather was good for January so off we went. Considering the time of year course was in good shape. Great course to walk which it is well set up for. Pace of play was excellent. Played 18 in 3:46. All in all I would do it again without hesitation.

A nice winters day walk

We had a wonderful time at East Orange on Monday. There was a frost delay until noon (maybe figure out a way to notify the golfpass bookers of this in advance?) but we were able to find a diner nearby. while we waited. The course is fairly short so with the hardened ground we were driving the ball well over 220 yards with regularity (nice for two 60 year olds... The reservoir on the back side is beautiful and with the course pretty empty due to the time of year it was a very relaxing day.

Thanks for the leave-less course!!!!

Thanks to the landscaper for the nicely cut fairways and roughs, and keeping leaves clear! Played entire round in the fog. We played our round in just about 4 hours - because we could find our golf balls!!! Tee boxes a little beat up from recent rains, but fairways, hazards and greens in good condition. would be nice if fellow golfers helped with the fairway divots. Food at the 10th hole was perfect! Will return!

Another round at East orange

Good place for a friendly skins match. Short and walkable. Missed a lot of two footers today, cups on some holes were not handled with care(8 do grounds at a country club). Course opened an hour late after frost but we were first group out. Seeing the crew blowing leaves off teee boxes and fairways was comforting. Now my home course since I live ten minutes away. Book through golfnow but definitely getting the $60 discount card in the spring.

Unremarkable

This course is good enough if you want to just get out and swing. There are no even remotely challenging features in this course so it’s a great course for beginners. The pace of play was really good as I finished my round in about 3:45. Staff was really friendly and for 45 bucks to walk 18, it’s priced about right. Would I play here again? Probably not unless friends invited me.

There is one super annoying thing that really bothered me that would definitely keep me away even if the course was a more challenging track. They’ve got this restaurant in the clubhouse area that plays super loud music that you can hear throughout the course. I’m one of those “no music on the course “ guys and this really bugged me. I found it so strange. I’ve played rounds with “music while they play” guys and that’s always annoying. I never thought I’d have to deal with that from a course.

Nice course

The course was in very good shape. Not many leaves for end of November. Driving range, putting and chipping green is a bonus. Restaurant and halfway house are very good. I will be playing this course again.
