Beauty, challenge and classic golf are all wrapped up into one when you experience Bowling Green Golf Club. The course, which measures nearly 6,900 yards from the back tees, is a wonderful Geoffrey Cornish/Bill Sullivan design that opened in 1963. Today it has seven sets of tees, starting at a little more than 5,000 yards so players of all levels can enjoy it. As you make your way around the course, you'll encounter streams and ponds, strategic bunkering, rolling fairways, towering pines and oaks and well-protected classic greens. The course, which lies in a valley below the rugged terrain of Morris County's Mahlon Dickerson Park, is Eastern Woodlands landscape. It's gorgeous in every season, with blossoming dogwoods in the spring and spectacular fall colors in the autumn. The course is easily walkable, pace is usually good, and the facility is known for its personalized, friendly service. The front nine, which isn't easy, is probably a little more forgiving than the back nine, which incorporates more ponds and wetlands into the design. The no. 1 handicap hole is the 443-yard par-4 seventh, a dogleg left that plays out of a chute of trees to a green well protected by bunkers. In addition to the golf course, Bowling Green Golf Club offers a driving range and practice putting green. Golf lessons are also available for anyone needing a little help. And the clubhouse features a well-stocked golf shop. One of the most popular options, though, is Bowling Green's Beer Garden, which features a diverse menu every day as well as a wide selection of craft beers.
