Featured Golf Course Review:
Meadow Brook Club -- Great Dick Wilson design
Review by: Dick Dies I played this course in July 2005. It was in outstanding condition. There are three sets of "mens" tees, and the course ratings from 74.1/134 to 70.4/125 are accurate descriptions of its difficulty. The course opens gently with two relatively easy and straightfoward holes. The third hole is long and testing. The fourth is an excellent dogleg left that demands a strong and straight tee shot and an accurate second shot.The fifth is a very shot par four which doglegs left. The green is well bunkered and treacherous--especially if you hit past the hole. The sixth is a long par 3 with water on the right that can absorb balls hit right avoiding the trees on the left. Every hole is unique. If the course has a weakness in design it is the large # of doglegs left-#s 3,4,5,7,11,14,and 17.Only #s 8 (second shot), 15 and 18 go to the right. That said, it is a graet layout and a real test of skill. Bring you best putting game as most greens are huge ( in the 8,000 sq. ft. range)!

Old Oaks Country Club -- Tight Driving Holes, Long Finish, Beautiful Track
Review by: NJ Golfer I have played this course about ten times as a guest. It is one of the best tracks I have ever played. You must be a long driver and if you can't work the ball, you'd better be able to hit your targets. On the Par 4s and 5s, you really only have 50% of the fairway to work with if you want to get on in regulation. Anything hit in the rough is tough because the grass ain't short out there. To sum it up, bring your A game and you will have a great experience. The track is well kept by the staff, the caddies are good and the long scenic finishing holes require stamina and focus. These last two (a long 4 and a super long 5) are beautiful and will destroy your round.
