Course Review and Comments
While not a great course by any stretch, it has some very tough holes. 138 Slope from less than 6,500 yards is no joke. Hardest 1st hole you will play in April weather when there is no roll and plenty of wind. Par 70 with only 2 par 5's. One is 600 yards with a 90 degree dog leg. The other is 659 straight up hill to a flat landing area. No driving range is a joke in my opinion but such is the fate of a course which winds through a home site. Your course management will be severly tested here as the greens are no cake walk to putt. 1st hole has a lateral hazard left and OB right. 2nd shot on the hole is up a 40 yard hill. It's the dumbest 1st hole and hardest you'll ever encounter. There's a reason this place went bankrupt once. That being said it's not easy. If you like target golf, this is your place.

This is a great challenging course! Been wanting to play it this year and last year but I can't seem to contact the pro-shop. Definately worth the trip comming from Staten Island, NY. What a bummer if

This course is well part of a housing community. It offers a very challenging course layout. Each tee box requires some negotiating, becasue the driver may not be suitable. Hardest course I played
