Pros: Well maintained
Easy to get around
New Mach V orange baskets
Lots of benches
#1 tee box at the end of the parking lot. 18 ends by the parking lot
You can see most of the baskets from the tee so detailed signs are not needed.
One set of tees. Back tees may be added later.

Hole 1. Cool start. Island green surrounded by OB road
Hole 4. Great par 4. Go for the landing area or throw a bomb over the entire lake. Possible eagle but have not seen one yet
Hole 6. Hanging basket ace hole
Hole 7. Par 4. Tunnel shot
Hole 10. Great hole. Basket on top of a steep mound. Lots of rollaways.
Hole 12. Par 4 protected by OB road
Hole 15. Beautiful anni tee shot over 175' feet of water then goes right around some trees. Safe bailout to the right
Hole 16. Another awesome water hole
Cons: Must play early in the morning in the summer because of overflow parking. There is a great free zoo here that is very popular
There are a few shared baskets but it has never been an issue
Natural tees. No problem with footing
No holes for big arms to air it out except number 4. There are 5 par 4s though
Other Thoughts: This is a completely new layout from the old course. It takes advantage of the beautiful lake by inducing some memorable shots. The design allows for lots of birdie opportunities if you can hit your lanes. The wooded holes are not so dense. You can always find a fair clean lane to throw through. This is my home course. I always have a good time playing here. Remember to play early during the summer.

Pros: Not isolated. Can be around people for safety, based on time you arrive. I played late afternoon on a holiday Sunday on my first outing in 2018. No people in the way. Only one car to wait to pass before throwing. Interesting layout, particularly holes 7-14. Directional posts guide you to tees, latter are bricks in the ground.
Cons: A bit too much water. You must have power and aim to get over the lake at 4 and 16. I don't possess such yet, so don't try those two. I may think differently when I am a better player. If pavilions are in use, it will be a dangerous situation at holes 7-13. Go off-peak times. Really like holes 9 and 10 despite casual water in front of the latter. Hole 6 is now longer with plenty tree limbs to deal with before and after the water. Drive and/or approach at 15 can easily wind up wet.
Other Thoughts: I like it. Will play the course every time I'm in the area. Very helpful office staff. Large field in the middle of the park is a great place to warm up and practice.

Pros:
- Finally, an 18 hole course nearby South Jersey shore points that is well kept by friendly landscaping staff
- Well thought out, creative use of limited, available land in park that eliminates many of the negative review comments of the former 9-hole course that had traversed picnic pavilions with associated pedestrian traffic
- Variety of shot lines that keep you thinking about disc selection and vary backhand or forehand throws...not biased towards RH or LH player
- Balanced mix of lightly and moderately wooded, as well as water in play holes
- Available restrooms, trash receptacles, playground and GREAT ZOO that is free admission
- Comprehendible signage
- Sandy soil drains almost immediately, so few muddy areas
- Hanging basket on holes 6 and 14, Mound basket on hole 10
- No ticks!
Cons:
- Holes 8 and 12 fairways are placed in an overflow parking area, unplayable when park is crowded (weekends, bad weather days during summer when zoo visitors peak, etc.)
- Consider course in pre-opening stage, so awaiting paver or concrete tee pads, course map, out of bounds designations, lost disc repository, selective tree limb trims
- Shared baskets sets up possibility for course congestion, in anticipation of widespread popularity during summer season
Other Thoughts:
- Course plays at a high recreational level due to predominant use of woods
- Recommend sunrise play to avoid crowds
- Put some floating discs in your bag for holes 4 and 15
- I played a round with course designers (Glenn and Phil), found out park staff, upon realizing that former 9-hole course had poor reviews, worked with local players to fund baskets and signage, as well as finalize and install course layout. Very refreshing news.
- Advanced players likely to find some par ratings are generous
- Recommend addition of sign coming off basket 7 to direct players to 8th tee
- A really flat course, but, totally expected in South Jersey
- Traversing from basket 10 to 11th tee you get a chance to taunt ball golfers on adjacent, private course...nice touch
