New Ownership improves quality of course
I had vowed to never return to this course even though it is just around the corner from where i live. However, there was a Golfnow discount that was too good to pass up. So, I booked an early morning tee time to avoid the extreme heat and humidity. The new ownership has invested in improving the course. In addition, they have improved the customer service experience for the golfers. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. There was a marshal that made the rounds. Hole after hole looked much better than they did four years ago when i last played. They still have to work on the front fairway of hole 18 as well as a few bunkers that are under repair. This one round has changed my opinion about playing there. I plan to return if there is a good Golfnow discount available.

This course offers everything that beginners to advanced players will enjoy. I will definitely play here again.

A course for weekend average golfers
I found the course to be extremely weekend golfer friendly. The fairways are wide and the greens are receptive, and easy to read.

one of the harder "neighborhood courses'
While this course has the "panache" of your average neighborhood course, it's actually a pretty-tough course. It's a bit rough in some ways, the path from the #1 green to t he #2 teebox is not well-marked, the fringes are uniformly beat-up and worn-down and so on. But it is a very challenging course with a lot of verticality, some quite narrow tee-shots, some good over-water shots, some really nice holes, a solid challenge. It's a tight "woods" course. With houses respectably-far away, but still quite in view. I can't see anyone playing this course and coming away without some burn-marks who has been playing less than a few years and can't break 100 anywhere. If I was in the mood for a tough course to play that wasn't too expensive, some place where I could really challenge my driver for accuracy and my irons for consistency, this is one of the courses that I'd think of. The one problem with it is that because it is a "neighborhood course" it does tend to get a lot of people who are not really up to it technically, and the pace of play can get pretty slow as they hack and duff their way around the course on their way to a 120 or higher. But it is my idea of a good and tough but fair woods course.

I used to play this course once a week back in the late 90's early 2000's. Its not as plush as it was back then, but the layout and the challenge is still there. A few tee boxes were shotty but the course overall was very playable.

The greens/fairways were in great shape, although, one thing that got a bit frustrating were the tee boxes. They were very patchy with a lot of dirt and not much grass to work with. Other than this, the course was in great shape.

quality course for affordable pricing
my brother and I play here at least 5 times a year. The course is in wonderful condition, the fairway makes PGA tour like divot. Gems a medium speed and allows you to use the breaks. The trees surrounding the course demands you to hit tight shots. Whether you are a beginner or experienced golfer it provides a good challengefor both levels. Need an all around game to play this course. If I loose a ball in the woods, I'll more then likely find someone else ball in the woods to replenish my inventory. Lol. Great food, for loose pricing. Can't wait till the liquor license is required to start serving adult beverages again. Can't wait to play here again

Marlton after a day of rain
Marlton has a hospitable staff and a reasonable and somewhat challenging layout. The back 9 is a little more challenging than the front in my opinion. The downside of playing Marlton is the course is built on land that does not drain well. I recommend playing it under dry conditions but not after a day of rain. You will experience plugged shot and slippery footing on the tee boxes and in the fairways. If you happen to take a chance and play after a day of rain make sure you are wearing spiked, waterproof golf shoes.
