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.

Review by: John McAffey Played the course in Aug. 2003. Nice course and club house. But the course is too short. Strong players will over power the course. Most par 4's are driver/3 wood and then wedge in. Par four 4th hole is a driveable par four. A bogey on that hole should leave a bad taste in one's mouth. The next hole, a short par three, is not too exciting despite a sloped green. The pro shop is well stocked and the pro is very friendly. Nice course to play but members may get bored after a year or two.
