Another very nice course great conditions, solid layout, walker friendly. Planning on being there for the Philly/NJ Club date and wanted to get a feel for the layout. I'm planing on playing from the blue tees, so that's where the yardage marks are. Any input or insights would be very welcome. The overhead views are great for getting a look at what's behind the green and such, but don't give much useful information about elevations and slope.

Here's my input. The course was formerly a sod farm and is still run by the same family that had the sod farm. So conditions are very good. Although, I wonder what it'll be like with the dry conditions this year. I haven't played it yet this year, but in past times, the rough can be very penal. Very thick. The course is wide open except for 3 holes that play through the trees (10,11,12). 9th hole is very tough, long par 3 which almost always has a lot of l-r wind with water to the left. 10th is an iron off the tee. The only hole I don't like (because I hit a fade) is the 12th. It's rated fairly easy on the card but it's a short dogleg left with a tight fairway and very sloping hill on both sides. Miss the fairway on your tee shot and you won't see par. The course has a lot of water on it. 18th hole-on your second shot, lay up to the top of the hill (where trees pinch in) and NEVER go beyond it. Water in front of the green to about 40-50 yards back. Blues are the tees to play. Be sure to check OB on each hole as it's not always obvious.
