Bowling Green Golf & Tennis Club -- An apple a day.......
Review by: John Hiers As a Southern California transplant, I have found public golf here in North Jersey a rude awakening. Bowling Green, however, is a little gem out on the edge of civilization that reminds me a bit if home. The staff is friendly and offers, of all things, cold, crisp apples on the first tee. The course is well conditioned with fairly fast greens, moderately bunkered with most fairways being tree lined. The course is challenging but never frustratingly punitive. One oddity though is that the longer hitter really can't pull out the driver until the 6th hole where he faces a 420 yard 4 par requiring cut shot to a 20 yard wide landing area. That's a tough first swing with the driver! There are some other interesting holes such as the short par five, dogleg left, 4th. This hole is "un-snipable", that is, the long hitter can't simply blast it over the corner. Distance and direction control on the tee shot will determine if youre looking at a 4 or a 7. Not every hole on the course presents such a fascinating conundrum, but overall the layout is thoughtful and calls for return visits. As for the amenities, the bar/restaurant is comfortable and offers good value. There is a range but they offer driving mats only (I wish they would re-think this as they are not very busy and have plenty of room). The practice putting green is very fast and they allow chipping. All in all, $52 for a weekday walk seems a little salty but the challenge, scenery, fast play and sweet apples keep me coming back.

Cape May National Golf Club -- An interesting course
Review by: Steve Waxman Cape May Nat'l is designed to take advantage of and highlight its natural setting. The par-3 3rd offers tees on both sides of the green allowing a choice between a 185 yd hole over water or a 110 yarder where the water is not a factor. The par-5 4th starts with a 175 yard carry over marsh and the par-4 5th is all sand for the first 150+ yds. The 11th and the 18th are my two favorites. Almost every hole is interesting in its own way and a challenge for any golfer. At the same time, the average golfer should not be intimidated and have an enjoyable round. Generally well maintained, the condition depends heavily on the weather. In good weather, the course is beautiful.
