Great course

Love playing this course. Conditions were good considering it's late December. Some bunkers were a little hard but otherwise, good condition.

Just move to NY from California (Delta/Bay Area) First time playing this course. Didn't lose any balls in the leaves, but guys I was playing with lost a number of balls. I'm not a big hitter (75 yrs old) but I'm accurate, which was even more beneficial today (10/31). Greens were slow and a little rough, but playable. I did play from the senior tees (yellow)

A better public course

Although most public courses do not have as good of upkeep as private clubs, Sprain does a solid job throughout the season. If more golfers replaced divots and fixed their ball marks it would help. Otherwise challenging course.

This course is beautiful and forgiving.

I play this course as often as I can with my group of lady golfers. The fairways are wide, and the course is in beautiful condition. The staff are friendly and efficient, and I’m happy to see that the rangers get out there and try to keep things moving.
I wish the restaurant would stay open later, because the food is good, and the usual bartender/ waitress is outstanding! ( How she remembers what we usually order is amazing.) Feels like family at this course.

Enjoyable & Comfortable

Played many different courses in NJ & NY recently and Sprain Lake is now a future option, ....especially if it's a hot deal.
Commute with tolls and 'regular' rates are only hesitation.

Aeration Alert

Pleasantly surprised! Nice, comfortable and challenging.....except the greens were beyond challenging. Should give discounts or partial credits(?)
Definitely looking forward to playing here again......after putting conditions are improved.
