Golf & Course Tour
Designed by Hal Purdy, the PGA-recognized 18-hole private golf course has been described as a "hidden gem” of beautiful Bergen County. A $2.4 million renovation project completed in 2005 by Ronald Cutlip incorporated a new Toro irrigation system, bunkers, tee complexes and green expansions. A driving range, putting green and an excellent short game practice area only add to the luxury of our course.
Hole 1 - Par 5
A reachable par 5 opener for the long hitter but OB and hazard down the right side along with a well guarded green, make it a challenging opener.
Hole 2 - Par 3
With its well guarded postage stamp green and hazard just off the green on the right, this hole requires a precise shot to keep it on the green.
Hole 3 - Par 4
OB down the left and a fairway that pinches in requires no more than 220 yds from the back tee. Be sure not to miss this green left.
Hole 4 - Par 3
A solid and precise shot is required to get the ball on this shallow green with water in front and trees guarding right side. A par here is a good score.
Hole 5 - Par 4
OB down the left be sure to stay right off tee towards big tree that is in the fairway. Although it's guarded on either side, a good shot into this green may get you a birdie putt.
Hole 6 - Par 4
OB on the right and lateral hazard on the left makes this tee shot one of the hardest on the course. After a conservative play off the tee, you're left with a longer shot into a well guarded green. A bogey is not a bad score on this hole.
Hole 7 - Par 4
A shot of about 175 yds off the tee gets you a good angle into a narrow and undulating green. Two good shots will get you a look at a birdie. Driving this green is extremely rare.
Hole 8 - Par 4
Another solid and precise iron is required into a crescent shaped green with OB right and a pond in front and to left of the green.
Hole 9 - Par 4/5
Hardest hole on the course with OB left and hazard right, it still requires ample distance from the tee. The long approach shot is to a narrow green that is slightly elevated and slopes off to the left. No worse than bogey here is well played.
Hole 10 - Par 5
A true three shot hole from the back tees, it requires a good tee shot and an especially good lay-up to stay in between trees and short of pond that starts 100 yds from green. Once in place, the third shot is to a long green that narrows to the back tier.
Hole 11 - Par 3
Picturesque shot to an undulating green with bunkers in front. Very easy to three putt so look to get the ball close and you may have a rare birdie putt.
Hole 12 - Par 4
Difficult tee shot requires either a straight shot of about 210 yds to big tree in the fairway or a left to right drive that has to avoid OB to the right. Green requires a high soft landing shot so the risk off the tee is worth it.
Hole 13 - Par 3
Another accurate tee shot is required to a shallow and wide green with a false front. Getting it close doesn't guarantee birdie with many slopes on this tricky green.
Hole 14 - Par 4
Tee shot must avoid large tree and hazard short and right of fairway. A right to left shot of about 175 yds around big tree or a perfect driver shot near green can both lead to a birdie putt on a green that slopes heavily left to right.
Hole 15 - Par 4
Difficult dog-leg right with OB right that pinches to an extremely narrow fairway as it turns. Play it safe with 200-220 yds off the tee or cut the corner with a perfect drive and have a shot to an elevated green guarded by bunkers and OB behind.
Hole 16 - Par 3
The last of 6 difficult and picturesque par 3's is from an elevated tee down to a bell shaped green that is guarded with bunkers and slopes off on the right. A well played shot should get you a birdie putt.
Hole 17 - Par 5
The longer hitter can get home in two with a long drive up the left side from a tee shot that must avoid big tree on left and water on right. If you can avoid the trees on the right, you will have to carry water all the way to a bell shaped green with bunkers on both sides and OB behind. A lay up in front of pines will give you a 75 yd shot with a good angle and no water to carry.
Hole 18 - Par 4
OB on the right and ornamental grass left requires an accurate tee shot that does not require driver. The green is heavily sloped right to left and back to front with a difficult back tier. Keep it left off the tee and into the green to give you a chance to finish with par.
