Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

Valleybrook Golf Club -- Horrible!!!!!!!!!
Review by: Josh Played on a Sunday morning. The course was completely overbooked! Began round 45 min. behind scheduled tee time. Course was in poor condition. Slow, bumpy greens and sparse, dead fairways. One member of my foursome rented a set of clubs which I would have been embarrassed to lend to a fourth grader, (he returned the set before the round began and used an extra set of 30 year old clubs I keep in my trunk)!!! Once we finally were able to tee off the round was unbearable slow to say the least. By the 14th hole we were 3 and a half hours into the round and we had to leave in order to be at another scheduled engagement! I will never play this course again, and would certainly never recomend it to anyone!
