Nice course to play except in the fall - leaves, leaves, leaves. Played in the late afternoon and the cost was great BUT the pace was slow. Sometimes a lower cost will bring out non-golfers especially those who where blue jeans. Yikes.

I've played this course for many years course is almost always in fine condition during regular play. Favorite holes are # 11 which is a short par 3, #9 which is my course hole but very interesting. You’ll need to watch out for #14 par 4 with its nasty dogleg. Front 9 is very tight and back 9 has many trees you need to be careful with. Bunkers need work some of them are very hard sand and very compact. But all in all I think it’s one of the best courses for the money in a 25 mile radius.

What a shame the course does not have a restaurant/bar, it would be nice to have a bite and enjoy a cold one after a round.

You have to make shots on this course. Move the ball left and right to score. The greens are to slow and need to be rolled once in a while. When you pay for your round and if a person named Paul is behind the counter BEWARE!!!! He is nasty and ignorant. He will ruin your round for you.

I've played this course for many years, since it was originally called Willingboro Country Club. It's always a challenging layout and is almost always in fine condition. Several of my favorite holes are #9, a great par 5, #11, a very short but tricky par 3, #13, a difficult par 5 that plays uphill after the drive, #14, a dogleg par 4 that requires an extremely accurate tee shot and #15, a par 4 over water on the second shot that always seems to play much longer than its distance on the card.

Pace was way too slow at 2:30 PM on an early Spring, cool Sunday afternoon... Ambassadors who are actually the Rangers tried to speed things up, but too many hackers out there... greens need attention...

More open on front nine - tighter layout on back nine (Robert Trent Jones) can't beat 'special offers" greens fees. Bunkers need some work - fairways & greens pretty good shape - one of the best 'public' courses around - can get a little crowded for weekend specials
