This beautiful and idyllic Donald Ross gem is a testament to what course routing used to be about : taking the land that's given to you and literally playing over and through it. Ross took an exceptional piece of property and placed on it a fair and fun challenge that really is easy on the eyes. The inland links style pulls it away from the cookie cutter tree lined courses that are all over NJ. Play if you can or go to the Barclays next fall when the FedEx cup returns the playoffs there!

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
