New Jersey/Eastern PA Thread

Recommended Posts

Starting next month I'm able to travel to golf because I'm not working 5 days a week. I'd like golf with some of the guys in Jersey to NEPA

I just stumbled across this thread and wanted to introduce myself. I'm in Burlington, right near the Bristol Bridge. Closest course to me is Rancocas, but there's lots of courses within 20 miles or so. I'd be up for getting together for a round sometime. Don't mind driving a bit. My golf time is mostly Friday afternoons and weekends.

Burlington! Nice I'm right up the road in Delran. Rancocas I absolutely hate but try melrose in Pa short course but very challenging

HOMINY HILL!

 

I have only been playing golf regularly for 3 years now (a few years prior at corporate outings - and one day I fell hard for the game and it's been a love affair ever since) and have played a lot of courses in NJ, and I have to say that Hominy Hill has got to be the best public course in NJ! Robert Trent Jones designed and in great shape!

Hey guys. Going to be playing the Crystal spring courses next Thursday. Wanted to play Wild Turkey and Ballyowen but Ballyowen has an outing that day and won't be open till almost 3pm. Which other courses do you recommend there and in which order?

Love them all just recently played Ballyowen a few weeks back and got to say the bunkers were in horrid condition, hard pan sand not good, greens good but would have played somewhere else. Oh and it was cart path only, suggestion if you are not a walker make sure whichever you play you inquire if it's cart path only as they are all walks with a lot of hills. I always liked crystal springs but be prepared to be penalized for hitting some fairways as there are a bunch of moguls and you end up with uphill sidehill lies a lot. Overall a great set of courses.

I live in toms River and somehow never found my way there. I wish I lived in Monmouth county, would get the county card in a heartbeat and there's a few options I believe. Toms River has bey Lea (blegh, but also my home course), and then for county courses just forget pond and Atlantis down in tuckerton or something

 

Cedar Creek in bayville has stepped up their game lately though just fyi for anyone

Hey Guys...I started a separate thread about this, so if you're interested post in it...so we can keep all the discussion in one place but wanted everyone here to see it.

 

So typically we--all be it on another forum--have held an end of season final local outing the last weekend in October.   So why not do it here.  Talking to a few people yesterday it seems Pilgrims Oak in SE PA, not too far from Baltimore area as well might make a somewhat central location for MD/PA/NJ guys.

The course is reportedly in fantastic shape, offers a good value and generally never disappoints.   So ;putting this out there to judge the interest.  I'll post it in the local DMV and NJ heads as well. 

But I first wanted to get an idea of the level of interest.  Post here if you are seriously interested or possibly or not even remotely...at least then we'll know...ha
