Pros: Elevation, nature-hike, cool locals, 4-way permanent layout, not in New Jersey.
Other Thoughts: There are several wineries in the area that make this a worthy day trip from the Tri-State Area for non-golfers as well. Warwick Winery nearby has wine tasting, a restaurant and seasonal events when you have thrown your limit...

Pros: 2 tees and 2 baskets on each hole, a varirty of shots required, great elavation changes on almost very hole, front more wooded, back more open, scenic.
A 2nd 18 hole course is available too but why bother with it when you have basically 4 other courses to choose from, the original 18 can play like 4 different courses depending which tee or basket you are playing.
Very clean park and on 7/13/09 they were mowing the fairways on a Monday morning.
There are some tight wooded spots but nothing unfair.
The tee signs show all the options for each hole, blue/silver to blue/silver.
Cons: Not very near an interstate and/or it might be hard to follow the 1st time around. Old hole 4 was removed for a soccer field, this was one of favorite holes at Warwick.
Other Thoughts: I have played over 220 courses and Warwick is in my top 3! Very worth the trip.

One of the best!
Pros: This course amazes me every year I go back and play it. This course is just so unbelievable. Warwick in my mind is the number ONE course that exists. VERY well placed baskets, holes with tree's, holes semi open, a little elevation. EVERYTHING!!! Very well kept and well groomed. Improves every year. 2 sets of tee's and two pin placements that exist at all times (Two baskets up at all times on every hole). (LONG to SHORT is my favorite so far) Birdies are earned and plenty of mistakes to be made. Must have distance AND accuracy. Not many courses emphasize both so well. I must explain further, with most courses that have 2 (or more) different tees per hole, usually the only difference between the teepads is that the hole is longer from the further back tees. NOT this course, the best thing about this course in my opinion is that not only are the holes longer, but honestly, its a totally different hole. None of the four different combinations you can possibly play on every hole are similar. Truly amazing!
Cons: From what I read, the parks departments did a few things in fall/Winter of 2007which require re-placing a hole or two in 2008. However, it may make the course better in the long run.

Pros: 4 layouts at one course, what more can you want? Great shot variety required from all tees/pins. It's amazing how different each layout is.
Big props for having such an awesome local club as well. The Skylands crew knows how to do it.
Other Thoughts: It's no wonder this course is on everyone's favorite list, and everyone else's wish list! You can spend a weekend here and not be bored.
There are a few areas where you may have some conflict with soccer players and/or pedestrians. There's also one hole where you're forced to throw over the main road in, but you can see most traffic, be cautious.
I think most golfers would love to have this course in their backyard!

Pros: Cement Tees, multiple Pin + Tee placements. Plenty of Parking with the new back lot. Nice elevation changes. Beautiful manicured park in a Skylands setting. Nice bench's. Well designed, good balance of open + wooded holes.
Wolfe Woods is connected to Warwick.
Cons: Asphalt park road comes in to play on many holes. Tee signs are currently hard to decipher. The soccer people have taken over holes 3+4.
Other Thoughts: Can't wait to see the new holes. Great Disc Golf Center.

Pros: By far the best course in the NY/NJ area, and well worth the drive from wherever you are. Wolfe woods is a great addition and a completely different feel from the original Animal course. Blue to blue will test anyone skills, while silver to blue may be the most fun.
Cons: Wish it was closer so I could play it every day. Little bit of a drive to get water, snacks etc...if you can call those cons.
Other Thoughts: World Class - with Warwick and the Mighty Gaw within 30 minutes of one another Skylands has got it going on!

Pros: Wonderful layout with great use of 2 tees and 2 baskets (See Borderland in Massachusetts). Excellent elevation changes. Blue layout very challenging. #11 silver has a great risk/reward allowing you to either thread the needle or huck a huge RHBH hyzer to get to the pin. #10 was the only difficult ohle to find w/o a map.
Cons: Tee signs are fading making distances/pictures were very hard to see on a number of holes. Everything else is so wonderful at this course so this stuck out like a sore thumb.
Other Thoughts: A bit more open than wooded. Silver course feels much shorter than it is. If I could add anything to this course it would be some distance on he silver layout and water.

Pros: 4 different courses in one place...rare find for that. Have to use a variety of shots, from a quick toss to grip it and rip it holes. The course makes you think youre shot if you havent played it before. Taken care of beautifully by local players, parks dept and the inmate program.
Cons: The only problem is a sign in needed between holes 9 and 10. First time players dont realize as you are playing hole 9, you walk by the teepads for hole 10 (which are on the left about 1/2 way down 9's fairway).
Other Thoughts: I miss this course. With the addition of Wolfe Woods, the Town of Warwick park is a gold mine for world class disc golf.

Best Disc Golf facility in the World
Pros: Just a great Disc Golf facility...with the addition of Wolf woods course, this has to be the place to be if ya wanna become a world class DG'er.
Cons: Only thing I can think of is drive on hole 4 can go into road....potentially causing a problem with motorists and players! I guess ya cant have everything perfect.
Other Thoughts: Thanks to Dan Doyle and the local club there that put Warwick on the Disc Golf map! They do it right...first class all the way...I rate it #2 on the best I have ever played..only DeLeveaga in Santa Cruz might top it.

Pros: Well maintained, LONG and great variety.
Other Thoughts: What can I say, this is an amazing course. With dual tees and baskets you could play the course a new way every day of the week! We played our round from the long tees to the long baskets for maximum challenge and length and it was a blast.
Each tee sign had a short strategy for how to play the hole as well as a little map indicating where the baskets are. You'll find a great mix of open and wooded holes here as well.
A few stand out holes for me were #5 and #7. Hole 5 will lead you through the woods and then a basket situated high on a rock ledge, definitely a challenge! #7 starts in a field and you throw towards the base of a large hill. Where's the basket you ask? Around 100-150ft. feet up the hill through trees. #17 and #18 also play very long and are perfect opportunities to "Grip it and Rip it" as the #17 tee sign put it.
DEFINITELY make time to play this course if you are in the area. I really wish I didn't live 5 hours away as I'd love to have the chance to play it more often.
