worth playing both tees
Pros: Multiple tee pads. No frustration due to the relative easy of navigating the course. Great play environment with good scenery and a great variety in only 9 holes. Holes 8 and 9 are a nice finishing combonation:
Hole 8 was a nice steep uphill shot over 350 feet with the tee on top of a 40ft. hill.
Hole 9 is a downhill 450 ft shot with perfectly placed trees and a hook back to te basket. This is one of the nicest 9 hole courses I have ever played.
Cons: Only 9 holes. Tee pads are gravel.
Holes 6 and 9 are slightly hard to find for a beginner (for hole 6 go behind hole 5 to a small trail on the left side. For hole 9 turn to your right at hole 8 and head towards the soccer fields, the tee is to the right on the side of the hill.) Hole 9 is worth the search.
Other Thoughts: I played this course in the winter, the brush in the summer could make the course less inviting. Hole 3 can be a fun challenge for an experienced player or a frustrating impossible shot for beginners, the shot is through a small hole between an arch of brush.
Its a little bit of a walk to get to the first tee, but you will come across each hole with very little difficulty. The alternate holes make the course worth playing again from the second set of tees.

Fun little course
Pros: Fun little course with a variety of shots required.
Very well put together based on the amount of land used, and will get much better with the addition of a longer back 9.
9 is a real fun hole, especially from the blues.
Cons: From the whites, only one hole requires more than a midrange.
A few holes where fairways or tees are a little close to the previous basket. Not a problem now, but could become an issue as the number of players on the course increases. (holes 3,4,5)
Other Thoughts: Having seen the plans for the additional 9 holes online, looks like it will give this course most of what it needs.

A diamond in the rough...
Pros: Very challenging... I'm not a big fan of the wide open courses that require little effort and absolutely no skill. The fairways are tight and reward good shots. The practice basket is a nice touch. 8 and 9 are two of the best holes in nj. The whole course requires an array of different shots.
Cons: The rough is thick. Definately not a beginner course. Some tee boxes need to be weedwacked.
Other Thoughts: The sign leading into the park said that the official opening of the course is September 20th. For a course that is not even officially open yet its pretty. Worth the drive

Challenging but Fun
Pros: Elevation changes on 8 and 9 as good as any in NJ. Good work out, not for the out of shape. Potential with more play and some upgrades: unlimited.
Cons: Will eat discs if you're not careful... reminds me of Tyler state (PA) and others in that regard.
Other Thoughts: Extremely hard. Probably not for beginners... But also very enjoyable. It rewards the perfect throw and punishes missteps like any good course should.

Make some room Campgaw
Pros: -Elevation changes throughout course
-Clever pin locations.
-No advantage towards one type of throw. You'll need every shot in your bag.
-Newly expanded 18 hole layout introduces long open holes to balance the course.
-Great Flow and Markings: Layout goes back and forth between woodsy and open (not just 9 open and then 9 woodsy).
Cons: -Tight fairways (may be discouraging for beginners).
-The rough is rough...real rough. Thorns the size of cornucopias (you heard right, that big horn looking thing from Thanksgiving pictures).
-Although the new open holes introduce OB, they lack the complexity and imagination of the woodsy ones.
-Some of the new holes (not so much the old) still have some small uncut stumps-do not wear flip flops.
Other Thoughts: This course has taken a huge leap forward to definitely put itself in the "best course in NJ" conversation with the likes of Campgaw. It's hard to deny a course when it so blatantly makes an attempt to test almost every single facet of your game...up hill, down hill, short, long, dogleg right/left, tight woods to open, 200-1000 foot holes, etc...
Extremely challenging and unique. Well worth the trip.
