I have played here a handful of times and every time it gets better. Especially, after not finding out about this course until a few years ago. It is a great track with great features and a good layout. Some elevation changes, dog legs and blind shots. As far as the renovations, they are doing a great job here!

The course is an excellent value. They upgraded over the past two years so the course needs to recover. I play as a single and usually get out right away. Pace of play is mostly good. Staff very friendly.

Played this course early on October 21 and then the wind started...

Tee boxes were in fair to good condition. Fairways had areas of concern i.e. swampy sections or blocked out areas on most holes. Greens were in fair to good condition. But the wind was gusting from 15 to 30 mph. This was my worst game in a long time. The trees and waste areas came into play on most holes due to the wind. Like I said, you can’t the course...

I have played this course many times and have no complaints except for the pace of play. Lots of beginners and people who take 2 or 3 tee shots at every hole. No rangers on the course to help keep pace moving.

I do enjoy this course (only two par fives) because they work hard to keep the fairways nice. Some tee boxes need work but that’s typical for this time of year. Greens are in okay shape, some better than others but once again that’s typical for late September.

I've played Ed Oliver GC quite a lot over the years. Over the last three years, the course has made many improvements to get it back to being a quality round. While there is still work to be done, the course overall looked better Monday than it has in years. It seems the management is making an effort to giving players a solid experience for the money. It is convenient to my house and I enjoy a round at Oliver much more than at its partner course - Rock Manor, which about three or four miles closer to me.

I read the reviews before I booked. They were pretty rough mostly. We took the chance and found a really nice course that played well. No, it is not a 5 star course, but not many are. It was in great condotion ( maybe because of all of the rain).

Any day playing golf is better then a day behind a desk.

Course was in decent shape still some areas of patchy grass and drainage issues not overall pretty good. The greens were in decent shape. Clubhouse snacks felt a little on the pricy side but nothing crazy. Biggest grip was the lack of concern when we addressed pace of play with the ranger. The 4some infront of us had been an issue all day and when taking to the ranger the only response we got was “just try to keep up with them” as if that would make it all better

5 + hour round. Cranky old members in front of us who refused to let us play though. Course was bone dry, greens were baked. Hot dogs were overdone. Go somewhere else and spend your money

I hadn't played this course in a few years. They've made some changes and I will tell you that it's definitely for the better!! For this time of the year in the North East, the weather was a little cold but course conditions were very acceptable. I look forward to getting back out there soon!!

The greens on this course were always good but the condition of the rest of the Course had deteriorated. I had not played this course in a couple of years. They have made changes and improvements on several holes and the fairways are improved. They are headed the right direction on making this a really good Course. Keep up the good work Ed Oliver team.

We were the 2nd to get off on the morning. They had finished their changes to the course layout. There still seems to be areas that drainage is an issue. The simple hole markers could have had a sign depicting the hole layout or yardage. It was just a post with a number nailed to it. At 11 the cart path joins the pathetic for 3 so wear your hard hat. Also the nets are down between 16 and the driving range. They could have done better with the money they used for the ponds.
