Weequahic Park Golf Course -- Amazing to find golf like this in Newark!
Review by: Bob I was amazed to find this compact course tucked away in a corner of grimy Newark NJ. The fairways were nicely trimmed, with not unruly rough on the sides, and the greens were as good as some private courses I've played. Certainly not the "green concrete" greens you're used to seeing on a public course. Sure, the tee boxes could be better marked (I think the markers were all stolen or something), and the traps could use more attention to refilling with real puffy sand (as opposed to the tamped down white rocky stuff I found there, way too many times for one round of golf), but hey - this is Newark, after all. There's a big forbidding fence around the perimeter, and the atmosphere was pleasant, safe, and quite civilized. Highly recommend for a quick afternoon getaway - you'll be pleasantly surprised at the quality of play to be had here.

Essex County Country Club -- ECCC Thrills You!
Review by: King_101387 Was fortunate enough to play here with a member. The course (in November) was in immaculate shape. The greens were airated a few weeks ago,but for the most part the greens still ran true. The course reminds me a bit of Upper Montclair, but I think maybe a tad more challenging (several blind shots over hills to well-bunkered greens). Wide fairways make you want to pull out driver, however, bunkers are extremely well placed. The day I played it was extremely windy, so it turned most of the 400+ par 4's into the wind into Par 5's, and #7 a 560 yarder played easily 650+ into the wind. Great course, beautifully manicured, friendly service.
