If you’re looking to get some weekday golf in before for a big weekend I would highly recommend this course. Weekday pace of play is excellent., with no long walks to your next T.. I walked while two others drove and never held them up. Easy to keep the ball in play. COLLEGE aged players 11$ Monday to Thursday 2pm close with ID!!!

Downside: some fairways don’t drain well but that’s due to location of course not upkeep.

Fun course with a good mix of par-3s and a couple of par-5s. There's even a reachable par-4 on the back nine. Of the three Essex County courses, I would rate this the best for players of average skill. in Many of the par-4s are reachable regulation, setting up multiple birdie opportunities.

I've noticed other reviews who thought the staff was rude, but the woman who checked me in was very pleasant and helpful. Will be returning to this course often this summer.

The course doesn’t drain well and while we walked those in cart path only carts were SLOW. Avoid the various lakes in the fairway and your ok. Bring a snorkel just in case.

I booked on GolfNow for $37 dollars which is already too much for this course. When I showed up for my 7:10 tee time the golf shop told me it’s $67 and if I wanted to play that’s the rate and I’d have to to it up with GolfNow.

The track is honestly not bad layout. Really furry greens and the fair way isn’t really different than the rough. But a great course to learn golf on, practice hitting the ball straight and catching up with an old friend.

GolfNow should pre-pay for this course if someone books online and take this situation out of the hands of the golf shop.

Older staff doesn’t know how to work a computer. Showed up 30 min early and didnt get out until 30 min past tee time. I made the tee time though GolfNow which really confused the manager. The staff was rude and wouldn’t honor GolfNow price even though I already booked and paid booking fee. I was told I had to pay their price or I couldn’t play. Ended up just paying their price since I already drove out there. Will not be going back.

Upon checking in we found the staff to be rude and unorganized. The checking process took nearly 20-30 minutes.

After this was completed the coarse was surprisingly in good condition. Would play again with adding extra time to check in before the round

My friends and I frequent Hendricks, and today (June 2, 2016 9:20 tee time) was by far the most ridiculous and unprofessional experience I have ever had at any golf course ever. We are by no stretch professional golfers but we can hold our own. We were keeping pace and no one was waiting behind us to tee off for more than two minutes, at most. From hole five to hole ten, the ranger followed us yelling at us to pick our ball up and keep them moving because we were too slow (which was not the case at all). We reach the concession stand at the end of the front nine and break to eat a hot dog and purchase a gatorade. We tee off and allow the group of four behind us to play ahead because we didn't want to hold them up (as the ranger insisted we were doing). The ranger once again in the middle of hole ten interrupted my swing to yell at us about the group of three who were waiting behind us. Meanwhile they hadn't entered the tee box and were getting refreshments. At this point even the group ahead of us told the ranger he was being completely rude and inconsiderate to us and that no part of anyones game was being held up and if anything we had helped the flow of the game. Our two friends who were not playing so well felt insulted and down right embarrassed that they were being picked on and didn't finish the course and left at the end of hole ten, after paying for a full 18. It is safe to say that I and my friends will never step foot on that course again.

Always fun to play. Good condition, big wide fairways, not too long, and the greens have these big humps in them, enough to keep it interesting.
