Pros: #1 pro for me is that I live .7 miles from the 1st tee. with that having been said, this is my new 'home course'.
#1- nice 1st hole with a slight dogleg right that gives you a taste of just how thick the rough (the trees) may be.
#2- 1st par4 on the course. long gradual bend to the right with a sharp dogleg right at the end.
#3- our introduction to the Stafford pond. the tee has a mound about 20' off the front, upon which is the short tee, which makes for a challenging drive. watch for that pond, we'll be seeing it again soon.
#4- the 2nd par4 allows for a huge righty backhand that could set you up for an easy layup and tap-in birdie, albeit the few trees along this fairway don't come into play for you.
#5- field hole. big arms need only apply for the birdie. beautiful hole. take the time to soak up the scenery walking down this fairway, good chance on seeing the deer heard that roams these woods.
#6- par4 field hole. line of trees down the left side and tall grass down the right. the field ends about 75' before the elevated green.
#7- back across the pond. there is a wicked tunnel that leads up to the waters edge, 300' to the green that is perched on a slope so watch for the roll away into the hazard.
#8- par4 back in the woods with a narrow fairway that doglegs left with more then a few guardians at the turn making an approach to the green challenging.
#9- early dogleg right with two separate lines from which to choose. it's more difficult then it looks because those flight paths are thin.
#10- short straight very narrow fairway. watch that rough, tons of mountain laurel.
#11- par5 double dogleg. small left turn that leads to a sharper right turn that still leaves you just shy of 200' to the basket. beautiful hole.
#12- elevation comes into play here. it plays much farther then it actually is. gradual left turn at the top of the hill will put you on the green.
#13- elevated tee box that's not to much higher then the chains but just enough to affect your drive.
#14- left turning fairway with the thickest mountain laurel at Stafford all along the left and right side of the fairway.
#15- par4 starts in the woods, plays into the field and ultimately back into the woods. chains may be difficult to find if this is your 1st time. chains are just down the slope in the far back left corner of the field.
#16- par4 field hole with a hanging basket. again, enjoy the view of the field for we will be heading back into the woods.
#17- par4 initial fairway is narrow but it opens up once you break through the treeline. another lefty friendly fairway but wide open for a good enough backhand.
#18- nice hard dogleg left finishing hole. some seriously thick rough, crazy amounts of mountain laurel out here, on the left side.
Cons: the parking situation is being sorted out. it's a new course, how can there be any cons???
Other Thoughts: so much potential for this course. it's still in it's infancy but it is growing exponentially. great things to come from this premier course in the future.

Pros: -Great variety in the first 9 holes, wooded, open, and a water hazard (pond on 2 wholes).
-Well designed on the available land.
-Long and short tees for most holes.
-Close to major highways. Plenty of places to eat around the park.
-Nice signage
Cons: -No trashcans throughout the course.
-Used to be farmland, old rusty barbed wire in some areas that you can't see until you're right on it be careful.
Other Thoughts: Well worth a trip out to voorhees, I could play this course all day long.

UPDATE: The back 9 baskets were put in, this course has it all now! If you haven't been here before make sure you find your way here soon. Adam and the South Jersey crew out did themselves, my hat is off to those guys.

Great Course

Pros: Great Mix of woods, water, open holes. High canopy, no underbrush. Not too tight, but tight enough to be fun. Discs are easy to find. Some fast greens.
Cons: Traffic to get there can be a pain, but hey, that's NJ for you.

Afraid that fast greens may erode over time.

Fun Wooded Course

Pros: Great course to test all different types of shots. Right from the 1st hole you get a challenging hole that was even fun for me as a beginner. The water in play is just enough not to overwhelm but still adds a great challenge.

A few open holes in the middle gives you a great chance to test out your long drives.

As a beginner looking at the map I was a little intimidated, but after the 2nd hole I realized it was a great course with just the right amount of difficulty.

The course should be challenging for experienced players too. The multiple tee spots gives you a chance to play some challenging drives.

Signage is perfect too. It was easy to follow this course and find the different tees.
Cons: The only con may be that it's 9 holes. This isn't really a bad thing though since it's a great place to get a quick round in after work before the sunsets.

Nature will do it's thing also. Wet, muddy and lots of bugs, but that's just part of the game.

This really is a 4.5 (possibly 5) course that almost nothing wrong with it.
Other Thoughts: I plan on making this my go to course for a round after work. A few groups were out playing and everyone was extremely friendly. Provided enough challenge while being a great time.
