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.

Spooky Brook Golf Course -- Enjoyable experience
Review by: rcmjetmar Excellent staff. The course starts out mostly straight (and challengingly long enough), with a few wrinkles in the first nine, but the back gives you a bit more variety. The 10th is short but very narrow and hilly, and with a dogleg right. Then, there are the 15th and the 17th which play almost identically, but for the driver-loving long hitters, beware the water on 17. I would go with a 3-wood, right for the flag marker on the fairway. Risk and reward do not match there...I guess you will need to see for yourself. Overall, an enjoyable experience. Just needs a better 19th hole with some suds...Hear that Somerset Council Lords?
