Pros: This course provides a workout as well as a challenging round of disc golf. There is the obligatory 800+ foot drive over the ski hill to the base to finish your day. That is to be expected on most ski hill courses but there is actually some quality disc golf here as well. The woods holes are pretty cool. I epecially liked the sheer uphill epic of hole 4! The down below the boulder green for hole 6. The fun drive to a fast boulder green on hole 8. The amazing parachute dive of hole 9 through the trees and down there. Many think this is the best hole on course, I agree. 12 is a fun uphill challenge. 16 is a grueling hole playing big up the ski hill and of course hole 18 finishing by throwing off the top of the mountain to the base. There is a lot to look forward to here. Nice that there is both a winter and summer layout to ensure year round play.
Cons: I am not much of a fan of Ski Hill disc golf in general. usually the tees are lacking and this is definetely the case here. The course was wet around the base holes. I mean really soggy to the point of making me want to quit. I am sure due to topography the base holes are always a soggy mess. I got really confused a few times, particularly at hole 5? and then again at hole 13 I actually threw down hill to basket 15 rather than uphill. Yeah I played it completely backwards. Bring a map! For all the glory of throwing off the top of the mountain...It really isn't my cup of tea. basically the hill is just too big to warrant a disc golf shot....no matter who you are you will fade spike back into the mountain and not glide prettily down the hill. It's just so steep and long. The ski lifts are ugly and break up the hill and the basket for 18 is across a gravel parking lot...So it's not a real scenic hole despite the dramatic view from up above!
Other Thoughts: If you like ski hill disc golf you might enjoy all the climbing for one big drive! The better holes are off the ski hill IMO. The overall wetness and poor conditions kept my rating down a bit. If you can look past these you can feel free to upgrade this course a bit in your own mind.

Pros: *Prime-time Executive parking
*Awesome hike and key break spots
*Nice views
*Good Distance
*creative tightly knit woods aswel as some upper deck fields
*Huge downhills and helpful locals
Cons: *If your trying to play 36holes you better be ready for a hike
*Im not playin it right now
Other Thoughts: To me this is currently the best course in New Jersey right in front of Great Meadows, which only falls short due to its Ode To Dunham "which is classic! haha" and 1000 foot blast that doesnt compare to the stretches of ski trails and woods that are to be explored.. Enjoy Jerseys Finest
