The title of Lookaway Golf Club is a dare. As Rees Jones describes great golf courses as “you remember it when you get home, it must be visually appealing...and can't be so hard that you never want to play it again." The title may also be advice for first-time players when confronted with Jones’s collection of large sand hazards...after all, if you’re looking at them when you tee off, you’re increasing your odds of landing in!

There is little doubt that they are visually appealing, and hopefully they are not so hard that you never want to play it again. Nos. 4, 5, and 6 each feature a large cluster of bunkers along the fairway, which all but guarantee that GIR will not be possible. No. 17, a short par five at just 500 yards, is certainly reachable in two. A mishit on your second shot (especially a slight slice) may result in a similar result.

The most familiar looking of these bunker complexes, however, may be at the closing hole, where a carry over a marsh and six bunkers fronting the green may be reminiscent of the not-too-far closer at Pine Valley.

Located just west of Trenton, the capital of New Jersey, and a touch north of Philadelphia, Lookaway offers a getaway from several bustling cities for its members.
