Pros: Lovely little course in NJ. Beautiful views of the lake. Holes 13, 14, 16, and 17 are exceptionally lovely.
Some nice tight wooded shots. Perfect Roc or buzz shots.
Couple open field shot.
Some Left to right and some right to left.
Cons: Natural tee pads are pretty rough.
Signage listed in yards instead of feet.
Pars are way off. This whole course is a par 3 course yet some the holes are listed as a par 4 or 5 which is just ridiculous.
Baskets are old and have minimal chains.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good practice/warm up course (think: 9 holes here before heading to Brakewell Steel) for a more experienced player and a appropriate course for the casual player. Lots of cons but the views and overall pleasantness of this course do it for me and have kept me coming back when i just want to relax and toss some disc.

Pros: well established course
active local player base and support
breathtaking scenery on the lake holes
very close to gas stations/f&b etc
regularly scheduled events and leagues
Cons: small piece of land, literally every sq inch of the property is taken up by the golf course.

poison ivy is pretty common-ticks will also be an issue, bring repellant

baskets and tee pads are bunched together due to the small plot of land, can cause confusion for new players

tee signs are unique but showing wear, hard to read any useful info so the first few rounds will take extra time while you learn the layout
Other Thoughts: even after factoring in the small plot of land and the adjacent fairways, the course is very fun to play and has some absolutely beautiful holes along the lake to play. the course itself was designed and installed for the first generation of golf discs, but the local players show up by the dozen to play every afternoon. there were 36 people out for doubles when i played. it should be a very low scoring course, with experienced players getting into double digits but there is always a tree ready and waiting to kick your disc the wrong way, or a lake or other OB area to keep the round challenging and fun. if i lived any closer i could easily play this course on a daily basis. definitely recommend this course if you're in the area.

Pros: This is one of the most scenic disc golf courses in the area. I enjoyed the lake views and even the shots where the water came into play. Because it is in a relatively small space you can play it quickly (we took our time and finished under 2 hours).
Cons: If it weren't for the local guide (David) who was there to walk us around it would have been somewhat difficult to figure out the layout. You will definitely want to print out a map of the course. We were there on a weekday, so there weren't many people around. However, it looks like it could be a high traffic area during the summer months and on the weekends. There is one place where the fairways cross over one another. And there are a couple places where you need to walk a good distance to find the next tee box. The Tee boxes are natural and in a couple of places have large tree roots that cause unsure footing.
Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by the course. I heard that Buzzy's wasn't a great course. Whereas it is not a big course, I think it is a fine course and I would visit again if I weren't moving from the area. I found the "par" designations very "gracious". Online it list every hole as par 3. However, on sight it list the course of having a par 68. I felt really good about posting a 63.

Pros: *Shady parking spots
*Fun, but short wooded Holes
*Cool hyzer toses over water
*Easy to get to and a Wendy's nearby
Cons: *Short
*Akward fence boundaries
*Confusing arrangement
*Heavily populated
Other Thoughts: Upon arrval i thought it was gonna be alot worse than it was. It was nothing special, but since we had already made the drive up there we decided to try and figure out where the beginning of the course was. It kind of overlaped itself and was a little confusing, but its a small park and to be expected. The hyzers toss over the waters edge is a fun one, but otherwise its kind of an easy and lackidasical course layout. Nedless to say i wouldnt return for another rund at Buzzys.

Pros: This course isn't all about long drives. It's about tactical tosses and accurate fades. Great landscape, stopped to take a few pics over the lake as the sunset. You have to be surgical through the trees sometimes.
Cons: Holes cross on the front 9. Hole three and four are in the same clearing, as you shoot up to hole 3 you will be walking directly down hole 4's path. Lots of geese poo through one hole near the lake. Inconsiderate people with dogs walk right in your discs potential path of flight.
Other Thoughts: Plenty of smoke spots. Hole 16's tee is missing a sign. Could use some concrete slab tees but the natural elements add a nice variety to your disc game. LOST BLUE Innova Star TL fairway driver on hole 16, please email me if you find jd@abyssproduction.com you will make a disc friend, thanks.

Pros: Beautiful spot overlooking a lake. Easy to get to
Cons: Holes are quite hard to find. Lots of trees (it was hard to play even now when there are no leaves on the trees!)
Other Thoughts: Great place to go to have a picnic and maybe do some disc golf as an aside.
