Tees Holes Par Yardage USGA Rating Slope
Blue 18 72 6946 73.6 132
Green 18 72 6447 71.5 130
White 18 72 5935 69.2 126
Red 18 72 5062 69.6 121

Built: 1997
Architect: Steve Smyers

Description: Features the traditional parkland-style layout, the course’s wetlands and wild native grasses intertwine with abundant wooded areas, traditional shallow bunkers, and wide fairways. It is routed around tree lines and tall native grasses offer directional cues for the player to follow.  The bunkering is very traditional, cut into flatter, sweeping terrain.  This is the less punishing of the two courses with little water and strategic bailout areas.  Particularly interesting is the Par 4, 385 yard, 4th hole, a dogleg left, with considerable mounding.

Comments: rated “Four Stars” by Golf Digest’s Places to Play, and is rated as one of GolfWeek’s “Top 10 Golf Courses” among public courses in the state of New Jersey.
