Trying to be Objective in Jersey.

Pros: I set out today looking to knock off another unplayed Jersey course off my short list, bringing myself closer to the day when I'll never have to go into the state again except of course for the prestigious Glowville on the River. With a few new discs in hand I was expecting nothing more than trying out some new plastic and wandering around the park looking for holes that may appear to have natural left-turning RHBH shots but force you through jug-handle mandos.
To my delight Camden County DGC has gone through an overhaul in the past year. A new much more detailed map greets players at the start of the course accompanied by hole distances. And even better, the course itself is now marked! Each tee area and tree object had a clearly visible sign on it indicating hole number, distance and direction of next tee. Course navigation was a breeze, I only had to consult the map 2 or 3 times.
The park itself was pretty and very well groomed. A small stream comes into play on a few holes. Park has elevation change and the hole certainly had shot variety. I also appreciated the layout. For the size of the park hole distances were very appropriate, the designer didn't try to cram to much into the land provided. Layout was beginner friendly, yet offered some challenging holes and short game work for the seasoned player.
Cons: Its an object course, so take it for what it is. If you don't think you can enjoy putting at marked areas on trees, don't bother. Some holes also play right alongside roads and private property (I put a drive into someone's front yard)
Other Thoughts: Applause for whom ever updated this course and made it much more playable. They even had the foresight to put the signage high on the trees and out of the reach of vandals. It is now a prime example of how to put in a course with a very low budget. Great use of the land available, maybe one day it'll have baskets.
