I agree with the previous reviewers. I visit NJ to see my family a few times a year and this is always on my short list of places to play. Why? It is a lot of fun to play, has been consistently in good condition, and with various discount options it is very reasonable to play. And I admit I enjoy the semi-representation of the architects recreated work.
Does the opening hole represent Old Tom? Sort of. Well the stacked sod bunkers look like it, but clearly the turf is different than St Andrews. But who cares?! Sometimes the best part of golf is the fun of the round and the walk through the woodlands.
And there are challenges. Though the first hole is pretty straight forward par/birdie, the second surprises you with a VERY challenging par 3 where most would be ecstatic to be somewhere on the green.
