GOOD COUSE FOR THE DAY.
Course was in good shape, but need a little maintance bunkers needed dragging, sand was to hard and you could not get a clean shot. Trees down need clearing and some on the greens.
Course was otherwise in good shape for all the rain and storm we have had the past three monthes.

Like the course layout. Visually impressive.
Condition was not a good as I have seen in the past. Some green skirts were in pretty bad shape. Fallen leaves need to be removed from areas just off the fairway. Otherwise, its in good winter shape.

Great features, good challanger
This course offered plenty of challange for me, (a senior citizen), and a great challange for my grandson, (a teenager). I would recommend the course for any golfer from scratch to high handicaper but don't forget your sand wedge.

First time playing here
Course was in really good shape for this time of year. First time playing here, and it was a tough course, Lots of bunkers make you play you ball correctly to stay out of trouble. Also first time using Golfnow and found it very easy to use. Great experience.

The course was a great place to spend Veteran's Day.
The course was in great shape considering it is November and less than two weeks since "Sandy" visited NJ. The fairways were perfect and the greens were rolling fast and smooth. Sixty degrees and November rates made for a wonderful day. Staff was friendly and pase of play was very good for a Sunday. Could not beat the "hot deal" tee time.

great layout... awful conditions
Played here at the end of August.. Got a very cheap rate from golfnow.com or I would have been very disappointed.. For an upscale place as this has been, the fairways and tees were just awful.. The course has suffered bad loss of grass and you'll find tons of bare spots and diseased areas.. The greens were okay and that made up for some of the other problems. The real shame is that this is a great layout and super challenging track.. I sure hope that they get their act together and get this gem back in good shape..

Great Course, Just plugged on fairways.
Nice course as usual. Fairways were just plugged so the conditions were not ideal as usual.

Great Layout, but course needs a lot of work
Tee boxes and fairways were horrendous. Greens were nice for the most part but there were some burnt out spots on quite a few of them. Some holes were closed. I hope the management gets their act together because this has a potential to be a great course but it is just maintained very poorly

Boy this place has got a lot of sand.
If you like a course where an emphasis is put on positioning, Sand Barrens is the place. Navigating the fairways through the bunkering requires your attention the whole round. Every hole is different than the last. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Great Par 5's
Course is starting to recover from damage in 2011. The greens have come all the way back and are in great shape. The tee boxes are beat up and the fairways are coming back but on some holes not all the way back. From all the work they are doing I wouldn't doubt that this course will be great in 2013. I would rate the greens 5 out of 5. The fairways 3-4 out of 5 and the teeboxes 2 out of 5. Very nice staff. Will be back this Saturday 10/6/12.

Will never play here again.
The staff is incredibly friendly and was the high point of the round. The tee boxes and fairways are in terrible shape. The sprinklers came on several times while we were trying to tee off. The worst part was that it took over THREE hours to play the front nine. The pace of play was so slow that we skipped the back nine. DEFINITELY not worth the green fees.

crab grass every where...
great layout. . the past 2 years the course has been in terrible shape. Crab grass is every where. Especially at the tees and the fairways. Course needs a lot of work. Good news is they just hired a new greens keeper. You can see the some of the greens starting to come around. It will take a good year for this man to fix the course and that's only if he gets the money to fix it. 9-24-12
