Description: "Golf as it was meant to be".  Consistently ranked as one of the top public-access facilities in New Jersey.  Tight, tree-lined fairways place a premium on accurate tee shots.  Large, well protected, undulating greens make club selection critical.  The scenery is exceptionally beautiful and the course is always well maintained.

Signature Hole:
#18.  A 601 yard, par 5 (from the blue tees).  Starts with a demanding tee shot with water right and trees left.  Fairway narrows for long hitters.  Final 130 yards plays uphill to a large two-level green surrounded by four bunkers.  Par, on this one, is very good.

Comments: # 4 and #18 are two of the toughest holes in NJ...a real challenge for the intermediate and low handicapper...not for beginners.  You must hit them straight...the fast, undulating greens will surely put your putter to the test.
The course demands a combination of accuracy, power, and thought.  Every hole is different and the course presents a constantly changing portfolio of interesting challenges.
