  Love this course!

Pros: The weeds have been wacked! The rough and overgrowth are a lot more manageable. No lost disks. In fact, there was never a moment to worry, could find any throw (no matter how bad) with little to no issues.

Awesome layout. #1 is one of my favorite holes anywhere.

It's a very technical course, without being overly infuriating. Definitely keeps you on your toes.
Cons: The tee boxes are a little rough, and the B placement (long tees) are barely still there. Most of them (still speaking to the long tees) are broken, buried, or seemingly forgotten.
Other Thoughts: So far, I've only played this course in Winter. I have no idea how conditions are going to be once everything starts growing again. But for now, I love this course!

Pros: Long Course with long throws. Well laid out.
Cons: Not sure who is responsible for cleaning this place up but they should probably find a job they're better at! The only holes not COMPLETELY overgrown were the ones in the soccer and baseball fields. Lost a disc on 7 and quit right after that.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful country but if you're heading to field of dreams then play the back 9 or run a REAL risk of disc loss for NO reasons.

  Bring a Spotter

Pros: Overall the course has a nice good lay out. The initial 9 holes are wooded with good use of elevation changes. Several early holes are along a river. #'s 14-18 put you back in the woods.
Cons: TALL GRASS - the undergrowth through the woods was ridiculously long. I was playing solo and I don't know how I managed to not lose a disc - at times you could be standing right over your disc and not see it in the weeds. Bring a spotter! #11 was a joke - 750+ft long hole over an un-mowed field of weeds and Queen Annes Lace 2 1/2ft tall - total disc eater. #15 is a wooded hole and the under growth was particularly deep - spent 20 minutes searching for a disc that I made a perfect throw right down the fairway. Tee boxes are in terrible shape - I played most holes from next to the tee boxes.
UPDATE 2/1/12- I hear they have started to do a bunch of work clearing underbrush and thorns - might be time to go check it out again
Other Thoughts: The open holes are very uninspiring - basically they are just straight throws bordering the edges of soccer fields. I think this would be a very fun course to play in the early Spring or late Fall either before the weeds grow in or after they die off. Definitely not a course I'll head back to in the summer. If they could somehow get the growth dealt with I'd raise the review to a 3 1/2

Pros: Good mix up of field and technical holes. Some really cool holes in general, easy to follow around even if you haven never played there.
Cons: My guess is that the woods would become really overgrown in the summer...
Other Thoughts: defiantly worth stopping by and playing if you are in the area.

Pros: The course has a good mix of small and big holes. You need it all to truly score well. From the longs its definitely challenging to get under par.

Easy enough from the shorts to get under.
Cons: The tee boxes really need work, and the brush is thick in spots --- off the fairway. Sometimes you need to throttle back a bit to ensure accuracy, rather than risk a muff going deep in the brush. This is a good thing, imo. The fairways are wide, if you're deep in the rough you made a poor shot. Not like Tyler where a great drive is determined by 2' either way at 200 feet.
Other Thoughts: This is a gem of a course in a place where there are few! Try it out, seasoned DG'ers will find themselves traveling to it --- like they might to Jordan, or Warwick. Clearly tops some of the smaller courses like S. Mtn, Alex, etc.

  Disc golf course in the jungle

6 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Holes were nicely laid out and had good map directions at each of the holes. Open holes in the fields were good if you want to practice Driving the disc
Cons: Extremely poorly maintained, high weeds makes it hard to find your disc, Tons of thorn bushes if you throw your disc out of bounds, Hole 11 is a long hole on both tee boxes
Other Thoughts: Someone who is in charge of the park needs to step up and maintain that course, If you end up going bring a machette to cut throw thorn bushes and high weeds. you may also want to bring work gloves, boots, have a spotter for every hole in the woods

Pros: - One of my favorite courses to play in NW Jersey
- Favorite Holes: 7, 12, 15, 17, 18
- Great workout going up and down hills
- The signs look great
- Great use of elevation
Cons: - The valley next to 14 and 16 is a challenge but its a bitch if you lose a disc in there.
- No water fountains anywhere in the park
- Couple of holes are right next to some soccer fields, and might be hard to play during soccer season.
- Finding the basket on 11 was difficult my first time through
- The fairway on 16 is very narrow and the deep valley is behind the basket. If you aren't aware of it you could easily double or triple bogie on the hole
Other Thoughts: The time to play this course is fall and early spring. During the summer months the course can get very wild, and make the course a disc eater. Also it's best to play with someone else so that you can spot each other, since there are a few holes where you are throwing over a ridge or around heavily wooded blind corners.

 Ever heard of a weed whacker?

Pros: Holes have a good length
Nice Park
I liked hole 15
Cons: The front nine is offensively overgrown. It's terrible terrible terrible. It was so bad, I simply wouldn't go back until winter. Holes 10-13 are simply lining the perimeter of a large soccer field, very uninspired. Luckily, it wasn't a saturday morning or I'd have a murder of soccer moms chasing me back into the woods for holes 14-18.
Other Thoughts: If holes 1-8 and 16-18 where groomed like 15, this course would be a 3.5-4, but I was so annoyed with 1-3 I almost left then. If I hadn't driven 45 minutes to try this course, I wouldn't have even finished. I don't think there is enough interested in disc in the area for it to be a GREAT course. If you own a weed whacker and live in the great meadows area, do everyone a favor a play a round of disc and clean up this course

 Almost Perfect

Pros: Great signage
Easy to navigate
Great variety of shots (left turns, right turns, up hills, downhills)
Variety of length/pars
Cons: front nine is VERY overgrown.

There isn't so much a fairway as one narrow beat in path. Really could use a weed wack job.

Tees are gravel, short, and don't really allow much of a run up.
