Pros: 1 - Quality professional baskets
2 - Clean
3 - Short but enough obstacles to compensate
Cons: 1 - No tee pads, markers or anything to indicate where to tee off.
2 - Signage is poor or nonexistent
3 - Woods are THICK and littered with sticker bushes
Other Thoughts: Far ways are narrow which is ok and forces you to work on accuracy but the thickness of the woods makes going for distance unappealing as a shanked disc will get swallowed.

The course layout is pretty simple but could be really great fun if all my "Cons" are addressed.

If someone wants to organize a clean-up effort I'll help, PM me.

Pros: Cool layout, secluded, great woods holes, baskets are in great shape, was a fun course for both beginners or the more advanced
Cons: Poor signage, couldnt find Hole #9 tee box, the place needed a good mowing, WOODS ARE THICK, stay in the fairway or else you'll spend half the round in the woods searching for a needle in a haysack, i lost a Silver Discraft Ti Buzzz on the 6th hole, please call me if you find it, i had it for literally one day
Other Thoughts: The idea is there, this is my 2nd time playing this course and I'm not sure if i will go back, id rather play other courses and not spend an hour per 9 holes looking for discs.... i know i should stay in the fairway... haha but sometimes it don't work out like that, ill come back in the fall when the foliage is less thick, TONS OF PRICKERS in the woods

Less than Decent NJ Course

Pros: There is a mix of medium and short holes, with a longish par 4. Great course if you are the type that likes odd and interesting courses. There is a hard tight hole, then a long par 4, but then you go into a thick woods. You go up stairs and then a bunch of decently hard holes. Not many people play so you can play a nice round without distraction.
Cons: Hole 5 is a joke. 100 feet? I know you could get an ace but come on! There is a water hazard but unless you are 3 years old you won't get it in the water. They should change hole 5 a bit. Also, there is horrible navigation. No arrows pointing to the next hole, and half of the tee signs are either missing or in need of repair. The rough is even thick during the winter and fall but you NEVER want to go here in the summer. It is a nightmare of gnats and rough. You will lose a disc. This course is kind of blah and there is absolutely nothing special at all about this course.
Other Thoughts: It is not really as good as it's rating but I kind of like playing this course. But most of the time it is really not good, especially during the summer. Go play Greystone or the new course Thompson Park in Jamesburg, NJ because this isn't legendary at all.

Pros: This course could have many pros but they are crushed by how poor it is.
Cons: Signage is awful! There is no organization to the course. There was garbage in basket #4. You spend more time looking for where to tee off from then actually playing.
Other Thoughts: If this place was cleaned up, tees were created and signage was posted it could be a nice quick 9.

A beginner's course

Pros: - Well manicured park.
- Uses the space it has adequately.
- Convenient and clean bathroom.
Cons: - No real challenges here for the serious player other than keeping your drives straight.
- Signage poor or non-existent.
- Only a couple teepads. Others are just "throw from this spot".
- Short.
Other Thoughts: If you're passing through and want a tune-up, it's cool. But not a course for a regular, avid player.

Pros: Good mix of open and wooded holes, not to mention the use of a stream to add the water factor. Has some nice technical shots and the change to rip some long drives. Nice scenery.
Cons: Signage
-Should include at least a crude map to show what and where you're aiming for. Example: For #1, the sign orientation suggests to aim to the left, which I believe was actually #8's fairway. On second inspection, it seemed that the fairway was to the right of the tree line and left of the playground. Finally, after walking around a bit more, I located the basket and realized that you shoot through a prison of trees. (At this point I brought up dgcoursereview on my phone).

-Should include a next tee location as well. I could not find the tee for #4, even with the help of the site. The signs are all mounted on the same type of posts as nature trail's signs, so it got somewhat confused.

Overrall, for a first time visitor, I had a lot of trouble navigating (this does not mean the course didn't run smoothly, because it does flow nicely). I'm sure the addition of a map would solve this.

The #5 hole is a joke. I could practically spit to the basket. Yes it's over a stream, but from that close, a water hazard doesn't even factor into it. If the tee box was backed up a few hundred feet it would definitely turn into a great hole.
Other Thoughts: Should add permanent tee pads and better signage. Make #5 hole longer. Decent layout but could have utilized a lot more trails and elevation changes.

 nice mix of the long and short

Pros: A little bit of something for everybody; both long and short holes, with a few middies thrown in for good measure

Challenging for newbies and vets alike, a good course to work on all aspects of your game.

Nice mix of open lane and wooded, close quarters terrain
Cons: Signage is pretty weak, but not the worst I've seen. Once you go through the course once, well, maybe twice, you will know it like the back of your hand. No visual representations given, only distances. See the media section of this page.

Tee boxes can use some work in terms of footing and safety. Tee #5 comes to mind.

Tee #9... did the designer decide to drop some salvia then decide to put the tee literally in the bushes? Do I shoot to the left or right of the bush column? Or just straight through them? I'm going to say to the left. I usually just skip this hole for this reason. Its become a tradition now.

The pine trees and sticker bushes can get a bit annoying and will swallow discs from time to time, but its not the end of the world. Some players are just spoiled with boring, vegetation- free courses. These obstacles let you know that you need to work on accuracy. Consider hiring a caddy to do your dirty work if disc retrieval is an issue. And to carry your oh so heavy bag while their at it. And wave a palm frond/carry a parasol over your head on sweltering days. Pansy elitists.
Other Thoughts: Not my favorite in NJ, but its come to grow on me. I have gotten much, much better since playing this course quite a few times. Its a great place to work on all facets of your game. Chances are you will get better too, if you give it a chance to begin with. Highly recommend a spotter.

My favorite memory of the place was when my best friend narrowly missed acing hole number 8 by six inches. Not an easy feat even for the pros, considering you can't see the hole from the tee at all, not to mention the serval rows of impervious pine trees in the way.

Pros: -All 9 baskets are present and in good shape

-The park was not crowded

-The park was clean
Cons: -No hole signs

-Missing tee signs
Other Thoughts: A good course for practice and beginners. The tees do flow with the baskets however there are no signs to show you which direction they are in. So it takes a little bit to walk around and locate all the tees your first time through but after that first time the course flows.

Pros: Room to work, ability to create tee shots further from baskets to overcompensate for shorter holes. Longer tee-pads for holes 3-5 makes the trip in the woods worth my trip every time to this gem. Great place to practice each and every shot!
Cons: Signage is poor, however course flow is easier than portrayed. Check out the Media section...there's a guided tour of the course. Know before you go!
Other Thoughts: Great practice course! Even though I lost a few discs in the brambles on my first play, I learned quickly how to play in tight conditions.
