Did Not Enjoy
Pros: Not a far ride from where I am.
Cons: Bad layout. Thorn bushes were over grown. Poorly mapped out. Had trouble finding some of the baskets, and some of the holes were laid ride next to a busy road, to where it was possible to hit passing cars
Other Thoughts: Nothing about this course really excited me. I was ready to quit by the 5th hole, but played on just to see if it got better. One hole was placed next to a party pavilion to where if you had a bad throw you would hit some one, as well as another was placed next to the hockey rink, and if a game was going on you would be dodging balls and discs
Pros: New course with a lot of diversity,has something for all short tight holes,long bombs. Course need some time to mature but is a really nice course.
Cons: Tee pads are rough but waiting on county to supply materials, a few of the holes on the back 9 are a bit wet. No signs yet but they are coming.
Other Thoughts: This is a really nice course and will get even better with time.

Very nice course
Pros: Lots of mixed holes, from wide open drives to tight forest curves. Long, 1000' holes to short 150' gimmes.
Cons: Signs aren't up yet, so we didn't know of the water hazards until we threw 2 discs into it. But signs will come with time.
Other Thoughts: It's new, so tees, signs, and other amenities aren't fully up yet, but the basics are there, and they work just fine. Throwing into the dense scrub pines was rough, so try to avoid it.
It's nice to have a course in Jersey we could go to as an alternative to Sedgley, Tyler, or Delaware courses.

Camden Counties 1st 18 hole course

Pros: Brand new Innova Discatcher Pro 28 targets. Fun, enjoyable course for all skill abilities in an area desperately seeking more courses. Good use of the land allowed. Course is set in a well maintained county park that was an old par 3, ball golf course back in the day.
Cons: Being a new course that hasn't matured yet, It's a bit rough off several fairways due to nasty green briars.. Veer off the fairway with your disc and the term, 'cat scratch fever' takes on a new meaning.
Other Thoughts: A great setting to play a round of disc golf in a ball golf type atmosphere. Course was designed for all skill abilities which is evident between the front and back 9's. As with all new courses, it will take time to mature and to gain all of it's ammenities. Cement paver tee pads, tee signs and information kiosk to be installed before years end. As for the rough, time heals all wounds. Time will heal the rough as well, as players throw a little TLC towards the course.

Pros: This course is not yet finished, and is a bit rough around the edges at the moment. When it is finished, i think it will be about a 3.5 star course, but without finished tees and tee signs it is a three currently.
-this course is a great contrast to stafford woods, the front nine is full of ace runs, with 6 and 8 making you work to get par. The back nine is long and open requiring a big arm and an abundance of shots to score well. The front nine caters very well to a rec level player. Hole number 14 is probably the signature hole at the moment, it is long open and dead straight. However there is danger, go too far right and youre in a clump of on in a clump of trees. The basket is situated on an 6 foot high elevated green which will cause a lot of putting frustrations. Be carefull, wind will be a big factor on n the back nine. The plan is to have professional tee signs and concrete pavers for tees. As of now, the tees are in the process of being completed, and a bunch of holes have alternate pin positions.
Cons: This course is not done yet, the course is in the process of being finished with mostly natural tees and relatively rough fairways.
This place can get pretty waterlogged after a rainy day.
Be careful, the creek on the right side of holes 15-17 and most people dont realize that it is there. The creek is alot deeper then you think and it is a disc eater, because it is black water.
Other Thoughts: Please do not bash this course as it is in the process of being completed. Come out for the grand opening on the 26th

Pros: I'm co-designer, and course builder with Dave Myers, so I;m biased - but will review honestly. And UPDATE as we make changes and work progresses).
Brand new 24 chain Discatchers!
Front 9 is designed to be a birdie-fest and plays fun and exciting, several ace runs.Par 28 front 9.
Back 9 is designed to be an entirely different animal, long par 4s, a birdie is a very good hole. Par 30/31 back 9 depending on Hole 14 location - par 4 on the elevated green, Par 5 when placed at 1,005 ft location. It'll mostly be on the levated green though.
This course is mostly open, currently natural grass and sandy tees, but soon will have concrete paver tees.
Awesome elevated green on hole 14, built up from 6x6 timbers and several tons of dirt/sand, with a raised basket (Charlotte style) up op top!
Ample faiways as this is on the site of a former 9 hole ball golf course. Uses the small hills and mounds from the ball golf course tees and greens well, as South Jersey is very flat we had to use ANY small ft hill the best we could.
Cons: NOT nearly finished yet, tee signs coming soon, course kiosk/message board coming soon, tee pads are currently natural grass or sandy until concrete pavers arrive and can be installed.
Next tee signs not installed yet, but very soon.
Ther are a few spots that a disc can be lost in the creek running along side holes 15-17, deep in the rough has stickers and can be unkind if you go off the fairways - so throw clean.
Other Thoughts: As this course is still being built, we put the baskets in first to increase the volunteer efforts and entice them with baskets to play. Please be nice on reviews as the course is no where near its finished state yet. - - but we are working hard daily!!
